so for reference, here's the timeline of events with Nutz doing the install on my car.
- Called Nutz about another stereo install (they did my 12s and window tint, not to mention they still wired my 12's wrong and left alan keys hanging off the magnets), they scheduled me for 2 weeks ahead since they had to do something. Anyway, the time comes and i take time off work to drive my vehicle down, and i was told it wouldn't probably be ready until the following afternoon.
- Called that afternoon to find out when car would be finished, and i was told by Nutz , and i quote, "Hey dude...i talked to US and RE and they both said that you need a minimum of 3,000 watts just to produce any kind of bass.. this thing isn't moving any air whatsoever... we had the gain all the way up and even then the thing wasn't hitting at all. We smelled something burning, so we turned it off and we advise you to not play your system until you get a bigger amp."
- Picked my vehicle up, i had my stereo up and the sub wasn't even moving. my buddies audiobahn 12's were bangin on the XXX 18 just to give you some reference.
- Called US/RE and they REASSURED me even 500 watts would move this beast. I called Nutz and said I'm coming back down to have this looked at. They take the sub out, do the wiring in FRONT of me, and magically... BASS! Almost quadrupled bass output. Ed (Nutz) specifically said "We musta had it wired wrong or backwards."
He admitted he wired it wrong, and when i talked to him about getting a labor refund, i was immediately told i was the one who was wrong, they did nothing wrong, and i need to deal with it myself since i didn't buy the equipment at THEIR store.
...so as soon as i *****ed about their crappy ****ing install, his story about how they wired the sub wrong? yeah, they "did nothing wrong"..rofl
and TO THIS DAY that ***** comes on these forums STILL trying to defend himself and say they never wired anything wrong..
MEANWHILE i had 4 people at my one job look at it and the one works and fixes RC cars, so a ton of expertise in electrical systems and what not. everyone was dumbfounded by the lack of bass, and when i had the bass... i encountered problems with my amp which was taken care of.
He still tries to use the fact that (when they WANT to) they can throw a bunch of subs and amps in a vehicle and act like they are the sickest install shop in pittsburgh.
AUTO ILLUSIONS > TEAM NUTZ
i suggest ANYONE with ANY car issues - stereo installs, performance mods, etc. GO TO AUTO ILLUSIONS! in moon. these guys know what they are doing, as the one employee caught over 4 screwups by team nutz. another install shop caught 2 mistakes.
there should have been 0 mistakes for the amount of money i was throwing you... spent over 2 grand at your shop and this is how you treat a return customer? **** you and your lame joke of a shop.
