I've been to the shop in Lincoln. Had a few things installed there. good things and not so good things...

1st bad experience- I bought a pair of 4x6 speakers and had to wait 3 hours for them to get them installed. Me and a friend had to sit around and wonder when/if it was ever gonna get done.

2nd bad experience- I wanted to get "db'ed" so i called ahead and made an appointment. I got there 30 mins early and they tell me that the mic isnt working right. (I live an hour away and made this trip especially for this purpose). they told me to come back in about an hour to check on it. I get back and i sit around for another 30 mins. finally, after all was said and done, it wasnt working properly. Way to waste my time. They were apologetic, but still..dont scheduel someone for an appointment you cant come through with.

If you must go to here for informational purposes, the only guy there i'd talk to is corey. he knows his stuff better than the other employees. Other employees lied to my face about info I already knew about(i was testing them since i was skeptical).

Good things: Corey and HIS service. The others just arent up to par it seems. and thats it...

I've never had a problem with the any SWAT stores. Most of my buisness goes to the dodge street store in Omaha, some of the coolest guys around up there and they always treat ya good. They always take time with me and my car club and they always put on good shows on saturday nights for free and also offer free competitions that are always a blast.

Guys just to let anyone know that Stereo West has came with new owners about 2 years ago and I can tell you atleast here in Omaha Metro Audio was running things but since the change if you dont know now you know Stereo West is voted for a Nationally known award for 2006... I used to go to metro and even owned treo and still have a little but not once through out my whole time with them have the offered to get me louder for comp. except with buying items... Which ****** because our car club travels to shows and I would still hit the same number.... So then Bill Gass came back to Stereo West and opened there eyes to what the comp. seen can give them and all our team and other people have been getting louder with there stereo items.... I am currently at a 145.6 in a Olds Alero with 2 tens and 1 treo amp because I cant get another amp due tohaving 4 kids... I was at 141.0 before. .... They have given help to increase sound to anyone that wants the help... Now I cant talk for the Lincoln store I dont know anyone out there... Holla Later

i work with a guy that used to install at stereo west in omaha. I know this guy really well and way to nice of a guy to jack anyone's shit. But thats the only guy that i know, so i'm not sticking up for anyone else.

I too heard about them installing extra hide-away switches to disable alarms in the wheel wells back before '00. There are some nice guys there, but I dont think they always know what comes out of their mouths. You can go in there and ask for the best coaxials (coaxials might be a bad example but none the less) and they will try to sell you a 200$ pair of JL's sh*t bucket TR line. I was talking to them about some ideas I had and they told me it would be impossible (yeah way to sell your services) to hit 140db in my truck, I'll never consider them or recommend them to others.

A) Theres nothing that they sell that cant be found cheaper elsewhere

B) They overate just about everything they sell, maybe they get commission?

C) Some of them just dont know what they are talking about

I think Drew at the Omaha off Dodge location was a fairly straight shooter. Why do they send you thank you cards anyways? They are barely legible.

I have been talking to a friend I'm installing some items for and mentioned this thread. He wanted to make sure that a gentleman named Randy at stereo west in Omaha got nothing but good reviews. He said hes the guy that rolls a toyota matrix and believes him to be the district manager for omaha.

Anyways, just throwing it out for my friend.

Yep, I've been dealing with SWAT for going on 6 years now, and they've done 5 different systems in 4 different vehicles for me, I've never had a problem with them and they always get things taken care of for me, and I plan on going back for system #6 in a few months.
