Re: There such a thing as honest car audio shops?
the shop i buy stuff from was honest to me from day one. i remember it like it was yesterday. i went to maybe 5 shops close by to look for an amp for my mids and highs, my eyes caught on a rockford fosgate 550x 4 channel, they had one at ultimate electronics for $550, was too high for me at the time. so i went to a local shop that carried rockford, asked about the 550x, guy said he had one left and went to counter to look at some book (i found out later that it was the pricing sheet for the products, he was looking up their cost on the amp), i guess after looking at the cost, and then added a little more on top for profit, he came up with a price, $375. i thought that was mighty nice of him, i ended up getting it, and have been buying stuff from them ever since.
moral? there are honest places, just have to find them.
