Re: good car audio shops - becoming a thing of the past?
Price matching the Internet is not necessary for car audio shops to survive. Potential customers of a shop should be sold on the shop, not the equipment alone. It's the shop's failure to provide value that gets people upset about equipment prices. If your install bay is putting out hack jobs for high labor rates, on top of perceived high equipment prices, they're doomed to fail. That's a business management and staff training problem. Some people simply should not ever work on paying customers' cars.
New online business launching soon. Specializing in car audio system designs and sales for those seeking great sound.
