JML is top-notch. They are in Chesterfield, but are moving to a nicer Fenton location with more square footage.

I second JML I went to school with Adam, don't know if he is still associated with them or not, but I've talked to Joshua a couple times. Seems like a good guy, Though I haven't meet him in person. He seems to have good morals about the whole car audio thing.

1. JML audio is the bomb, josh is a very knowledgeable person. just opened a new shop over by 141 and 44. though he is expensive (wouldn't look unless you have a couple grand to spend), but carries some good sh!t.

2. show off audio, they are very knowledgeable, just opened a new shop in south county. they have some good installers and a few good brands, ie Memphis, bravox, ... Good prices, but i still think their North Lindberg store is better, if you can make the drive.

3. Custom sounds, several stores in the stl area, actually i think they are a chain. Carry Alpine, kicker, JL, Focal, and such. they are more modest in price, but do some great installs. guy i know there, Kyle @ Lindberg and 55, does good stuff, ask to see his ride, its friggn sweet.

all though i would steer clear of Arnold speed and sound, they were suppose to do a system install for me, well it was a terrible install. the wires behind the HU were taped together, and zip-tied, the amps were mounted on the back of the box, and they didn't make any attempt to hide the wires, not even cut them to length, just zip tied the extra, in mass pile. plus they broke something on both my cars, and failed to tell me.

(sweet, my first post, lol)

Thank you for the kind words. We do cover a broad range and if we came off as only a ultra high end place we will do our best to adjust. We are not looking to compete with Wally World's car audio row next to the bubble gum but is that really the sand box anyone wants to play in? Feel free to go to our website or better stop by and spend some time time with us.

JML are snobs!! They refuse to work with customer prepurchased equipment, and I know why! They make MORE MONEY making you buy the equipment from them!! I will NEVER patronize JML!! :-(

And I will do my best to trash their reputation on the Internet and social media too! They messed with the WRONG potential customer!! I'm an Electrical Engineer and Computer Science major, and the last person you want electronically mad at you!

Who gives a fuck that you're a computer engineer? I'm sure you don't know shit about car audio //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/fyi.gif.9f1f679348da7204ce960cfc74bca8e0.gif

You don't even do your own installs, then bitch about the guy doing it for you.

What do you expect from a high end shop? Why didn't you just go somewhere else if you just needed an install? Patrick at Best Buy on Lindbergh is very experienced if you want a good install done (he has worked in audio for like 15 years apparently) and Audio Express on Lindbergh does good work as well.

I've been hunting online for a good shop here in STL to do the work I want done and found JML is probably the best or one of the best car audio installers in STL, but finally gave up and started installing it all myself. Then I found a Craigslist ad from a guy who does car audio installs out in St Peters and I'm pursuing that now. Been exchanging a lot of emails with him and went out last Tues, and going again tomorrow too to pay him some of what we've contracted to enable him to get started in a big way to get this Alpine (and one Kenwood amp) stuff installed for me.!! I have more money than time right now. If I had the time I would do my own very killer install! To MY specs!

And I EXPECTED a high end shop like JML to work WITH me, and not to greedily **** me off as they have done!

Yeah doing work yourself is quite time consuming. If you live in St. Peters/St. Charles area yeah there aren't many shops out there. I personally don't trust someone off Craigslist since they can't be held liable like a shop in case things aren't done right.
