This is a fantastic little hole in the wall for a car stereo shop. The installers are quite professional with 10 years plus install experience (same shop). The owner of this place is a knowledge mine. They don't beat around the bush with answers, they will give it to you straight. Granted their product is primarily JL, Kenwood, Memphis, and Pioneer they will order any other brand you need and even recommend equipment they don't offer if your needs differ from what they have. I've been going to these guys for a little over ten years and have never been disapointed with their service once. Formally known as KC Car Stereo (same owner, just renamed when his son Max was born).

You must be used to Independance Audio then. If you get a chance, have a look at Loud 'n Clear out in Kansas. They are a da mn good shop too. I don't frequent there too often, only when I need some ideas. Not to mention, LNC will also do custom glassing work (a la complete trunk kits or custom door panels) unlike Max Speed and Sound, but they still glass nonetheless.

may have to make the drive from topeka to check this place out. There is a place called Autosound here in topeka that does a decent job and always is giving me deals.(i guess when you spend thousands there on lots of diff cars they better hook you up)

Ya, Independence Audio aintbad, Ultimate Electronics did some nice installs for some chiefs players, but they went out of business. If you want to get some stuff for cheap, goto Custom Sound in Independence on 24Hwy. The arab guy who owns it always loves to bargin and if you try hard enough you can reason him down some good prices. His boxs suck though //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

Chiefs players? What are those?

Seriously though... I'm actually quite shocked anyone purchased anything from Ultimate Electronics... way over priced for the same stuff you could get down the road.

spork where do you live? cuz it sounds pretty clos to me, and Kansas City Chiefs football players is what meant. They let me and my friend in their garage where they do custom installs, and they had some pics of their installs for some of the football players. Like they did some really nice biohazard box design that went very well with the rest of the install.

But I would never buy anything from UE, but they were nice guys, hell I wont buy from any local dealers after my run in with the arab guy lol. Except Indep. Audio, they will match my online prices I find, cant beat $125 for a type R, even though I was talking them down for my friend so it wasnt mine, lol //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

Northland area. And yeah, I know you were speaking the chiefs thing... it's just I get too much chiefs stuff that any time someone mentions something to do with sports I turn away and go about other business. MS&S will do price negotiation... but not like what you find online... just a little above with full warranties... still cheaper than what you can find at BB/CC etc.

Yeah, I go there when I need something quick (I live about 2 miles away) but other than that, I go to Ground Zero off Johnson Dr. in Overland Park (or is it Shawnee?).

Max Speed and Sound wanted $12 for a 100A ANL fuse. That's more than ordering from Knu Konceptz + shipping.

Has anyone heard of Pro Audio? Use to be Sub Harmonics then it was sold and then became Pro Audio, Totally different owner. They have since gone out of business(not sure on that).

The reason why I ask is that I need to get my Amp Fixed, a Lanzar 1000.1D Got a green light but my subs are not working. Had a little wift of smoke comming from the amp or the sub box. I am running to memphis bell subs but i think the guys at Pro Audio bridged to 2ohms instead of 4. Also every time I go over a bump my head unit cuts out. We have such GREAT ROADS here in KC MO it's a wonder my car hasn't fallen apart, but thats another story...

I just need to get some rates and stuff. thanks for letting me rant.

i'd steer clear of loud n clear. last time i was in there, the guy was a total asshole, and basically told me everything i had was absolutel crap, and that if i didn't switch from my JL 500/1 and 300/2 to crossfire amps, i'm wasting my time. i've seen some VERY shady stuff go down there.

personally i would highly recommend santa fe auto sound, on 83rd and santa fe in lenexa. they are VERY professional, and do outstanding work. if i still lived in KC, that's probably the only shop i would feel comfortable working at because of the professional atmosphere, and they're not the type of place to rip you off and hack your install. they always have gone the extra step to do what's right, rather than letting little stuff slide.

or am i thinking of prosound
prosound also is one i would stay away from. very shady operation. i made the mistake of buying an eclipse head unit from them. 2 weeks after i got it, it went haywire, and started smoking. i pulled it out and noticed that they didn't use any connectors on the wiring harness. they just twisted them together and taped the shit up. no solder, no butt connectors, no crimp caps... just twist and tape. the constant wire shorted with one of the speaker leads and cooked it. i took it back, and they REFUSED to give me a replacement over the counter so i could install it (right) myself. i showed him their wiring job, and he still refused. i had to get very aggressive and he finally gave in. if you're in lawrence, go to kief's. they've always done good work and been helpful. i hear there's a new shop way down on 23rd st near K-10 that does good work, but i haven't been in there. they came about after i got away from kansas.

I'm sorry, I had to chime in on this. I think MAx Speed and Sound sucks. I went there a couple weeks ago and the owner was rude and was not very knowledgable. I went in to look at w6v2 and he told me I needed w1's, which suck IMO. I have two 12" w1s sitting on a shelf in my garage that I used for 2 weeks and couldnt stand anymore.

I told him what else I was looking at and he told me it was crap, and I wasnt looking at crap, I had been looking at rainbow and some arc audio amps. Anyways, we got into a pissing match of knowledge and I will never buy from there.

I will say that their installer I spoke with was a nice guy though. He wanted to show off a w7 to a guy in there and was nice about the whole thing.
