    CA epic sales failure

    Similarly, Koenig names car audio equipment as being the number two contender for 2009's epic sales failures. "In the automotive technology space, portable electronics like iPods, MP3 players and GPS systems are more popular than installable car stereos," he says. Koenig notes that automakers are now designing cars that have built-in amplifiers and portable media outlets so even top-notch car stereo systems are not selling to boot. He also mentions that anything analogue is having a tough time in any market. "Even great technology is not selling if it's not digital or mobile," he concludes

    CA would still sell if the automakers would stop trying to monopolize the market by running non-audio systems (AC, the ECM) through their stereos.

    The car companies should be sued by the CA industry for anticompetitive behavior.

    I second this...It's bull**it. Nowadays you have to have a fvcking masters degree to work on some of these cars, leaving the ca industry little room for growth.

    I agree with that info.

    The most popoular things I install by far are (besides remote starts) satellite radio's and ipod integration/aux ports.

    When you have to purchase a $100 wiring harness, $75 dash kit, $20 antenna adapter, on top of the radio itself, it's kind of discouraging



    I INSTALL STUFF.
    mecp advanced.
    i do it all.

    And the avarage consumer wouldn't know the difference between a factory p.o.s system and a professional aftermarket install at first. I usually have to explain the pros and cons before most people will buy. I love to get a customer before they buy a car. This allows me to show them the quality of aftermarket systems and in most cases I can beat the price of the factory "upgraded" options
