I walked into the store today because it was on the street of my work and I wanted to get a price quote on some subwoofers. The new owner was really cool and helped me out and was very informative and gave me a few ideas of what I should buy instead of what I originally planned (which was a good thing). I ended up getting great price quotes that were much better than other stores that I looked at and he even mentioned that he would price match any other store or give a better offer (within reason). I will definitely start buying my car audio stuff at this place because the amount of stuff they had was pretty impressive.

I went down there multiple times with My Car Crew and personally know the owners . Everytime i go to get Something installed i know im in good hands. All these haters seem to just be broke . Yeah its costly but that is what happens when you are getting proffessional installs Of quality equipment.If they werent so cheap then the shop wouldnt have to take shortcuts just to make the customer happy. If you paid 640 and think that you are going to get a sts turbo back system your surely mistaken. They are a good place to go for every customization option. Thanks Johnny and George and Gerald For the hook ups.

I have been getting my cars done there for years. The owners Gerald and George Rhoden are very down to Earth and hands-on owners. They will find out exactly what you need for your vehicle, and they are very reasonably priced.

was recommended to audio excellence by one of my friends. He brought me to their shop and I was a bit unsure at first. That quickly changed when I meet my buddies bro. Johnny, he hooked me up with a sub system, neon light system, and the after market spoiler. For your installer ask for Brandon, he installed my system and everything and I haven't had one issue with it since I got it three weeks ago. Also the management stands by their work and any problems they will get it fixed and working again right way and usually at no extra cost. This shop is going through some big changes and is starting to look and operate better than before with new installers and then cutting the dead wieght to bring the shop back up to what they us to be. Any thing you want done they can get it done and again at a great price. Keep up the good work guys

I went to Audio Excellence in March to look into putting rims on my newly purchased Acura. Unlike most cars I wanted mine to relay my personality. These guys really helped me with ideas to make my car stand out. I absolutely love driving my new car more now that the additions have been made. I found the service quick and convienant. They were also happy to drop me off at work.

I remember when I took my car to this place. First off, they charged me 65 bucks for some headlight bulbs not even PIAA brand, some generic bullsh!t brand. Horrible install on them also. They jack their prices up soo high. Don't waste your time. Go to best buy or some other shop..

dont even want to give them 1 star. I know plenty about car audio but didnt have the time to do my own install so I let them have a shot at it. I provided most of the equipment. First problem was the sub box, I asked for a 6c/ft. ported enclosure tuned to 32hz and came back to a sealed box. They told me I only had 5c/ft and I know for a fact I have atleast 8. I actually have a 6c/ft box currently installed. Second problem was the wiring of everything. I had them install a 3way active frontstage and even drew out a diagram for them to follow which they ignored, they even left the passive xovers installed. I honestly dont think theyve even heard of an active frontstage. Last but not least was 60sq/ft of sound deadening and 3 yards of another sound proofing material that I provided and paid for them to install, they told me it was installed. When I went to pick up my car I noticed they blew one of my tweeters, even though I told them not to mess with any of the settings and to leave the radio off so I could tune the system (showed up to my system thumping). So I ripped out everything and noticed that they only put a small square of the sound deadening material I provided behind the speakers in the front doors. STAY AWAY FROM THESE IDIOTS....

Cons: Don't know what they're doing.

Went there today, motherf***ers marked up the stereo deck I wanted by DOUBLE. Luckily I went to bestbuy. I would've paid 3 times the amount if I didn't go to bestbuy to get the SAME EXACT S***. F***ed up man. These guys are supposed to be a small business in Chula Vista, CA and jack their peeps.

Bad experience altogether. Went to Audio Excellence with the intent of getting my Lexus IS 300?s windows tinted and an alarm installed, when normally this job would have taken the average back yard mechanic four or five hours at the most to complete, keep in mind I said ?a back yard mechanic?. Audio Excellence had my vehicle for one and a half days. I called them before they closed on the first day they had our car and they said ?give us 15 more minutes and head over?. On our way to get the Lexus at 7pm, a different person called and said we will need it over night unless you would like to wait 2 or 3 more hours on the car. After not receiving a phone call on status of the completed job, the next day we went to go pick up the car (3pm) and to our surprise, it did not start up with the push button start. Back in the shop it went, ?give us like 15 minutes sir and we will have it ready for you, we?ll take care of you?. One hour later, the car is ready again. After inspecting the car I also noticed that they used the wrong size drill bit for the LED light on the alarm. So you can see a hole around the light. They also either did not add or misadjusted the shock sensor for the alarm, so it doesn?t go off if you even kick the car. One more thing about the alarm, it sells on line for 177.87. Audio charged me 449.95. Cars are my hobby so I consider myself somewhat educated about the topic. While talking to the sales reps I was lied to several times about the quality and capabilities of their products. Now about the tint. In a normal professional tint job you would see a clear dark film with no bubbles; Audio Excellence had several bubbles in the back window. When asked about the bubbles I was told its normal in these cars. For the tint and alarm I was charged $721.87. You might ask yourself why you would put up with this. After the experience we had with Audio Excellence I just wanted to pay them, get my car back before they kept it another night and leave.

Pros: Sory nothing good to say

Cons: service, timelyness, products and quality of work

These guys messed up my truck in sooo many different ways.
Lets list them:
Subwoofer box is falling apart after only 2 weeks of use
They installed my 1st subwoofer wrong and is blew up after 2 hours of use
They installed my 2 sets of components wrong and they blew up after leaving the store. They also installed the amp that powers those components and that blew up 2 weeks later.
They broke all the clips that hold my door panels onto the doors and they GLUED my door panels onto my doors to hide their mistake. VERY BAD

They also painted all my door panels their original color, AND IS SHOWS, I do not know why they did this but I am guessing that they must have detroyed my door panels during the install.

They tore through the leather of one of my rear seats during the install. VERY BAD

They installed my alternator incorrectly and it eventually came off while I was driving.

There were oil marks all over my car after the install was done.

Car was also in their shop for atleast 4 weeks, because they kept making mistakes and never actually getting to repearing them.

THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE, DO NOT GO THERE, they act friendly but they are really just out to sell you stuff.
