A FEW YEARS BACK I WENT INTO THIS LOCATION TO GET A BASIC RADIO INSTALLED IN TO MY CAR. I GOT GOOD SERVICE FROM SHANE SIMPSON WHO HELPED ME OUT. THEY WERE REALLY BUSY BUT HE STILL INSTALLED MY RADIO THE SAME DAY AND I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH IT. RECENTLY I JUST BOUGHT A BRAND NEW 07 ESCALADE AND WENT BACK AND TALK TO SHANE, WHO WAS STILL THERE. HES NOW THE MANAGER. HE INSTALLED A BLUE TOOTH HANDS FREE SYSTEM, A SUB WOOFER, AND A VIDEO INTEGRATION MOD. I TOOK 2 DAYS AND HE DELIVERED ON TIME, MY CAR WAS CLEAN, THEY PUT ME INTO A RENTAL OVER NIGHT FOR FREE AND SHOW ME HOW TO USE MY NEW SYSTEM. THE WERE A LITTLE HEAVY ON THE LABOR BUT THE SERVICE WAS WORLD CLASS AND I DIDN'T MIND SPENDING A LITTLE EXTRA FOR THE SERVICE. ALSO THE PARTS HE USED WERE GM APPROVED AND DIDN'T CUT ANYTHING.

I went to Al & Ed's because I figured I'd be safer with a large chain than going to a small stereo shop. I WAS WRONG. I want expertise and real advice when I'm spending $6,000 and all I got was "this is the most expensive.. get this" from the sales people.

When I picked my car up it sounded like they installed tin cans instead of speakers and amps. The aesthetic of the install was also completely sub standard and the amp "racks" they built actually ripped out of their moorings during normal around town driving. Even the tint they did is already bubbling on the rear windshield less than a year later!

They really just did a very poor job and after doing more research I saw just how much they overcharged me for the components. My misfortune is your gain!

I ended up doing quite a bit more research after getting burned so badly and found an excellent shop on the edge of Glendale (Audio Advice) that completely fixed and beefed up my system for a very reasonable price and with EXCELLENT quality work and service. I would have had twice the system for half the cash if I had gone there in the first place!

PROS: none
CONS: overpriced, no real expertise offered
