I have had my sound system for over two years now. For a year and a half they have just randomly stopped working. I took it to another audio shop around my local area and the guy tried to charge me 80 dollars just for rewiring! That is

Pros: Cheap, no upsell, customer focused, friendly even if your not buying anything huge.

Cons: Easy to find but make sure to enter into the complex the first time around, it's a little tricky trying to turn around on the street they are on.

I had called earlier in the day asking if they had a specific cord (tried 9 other stores and nobody else had it). I talked to the guy on the phone and he replied yes. I head down there and missed the entrance (see cons above). Once I got into the parking area you have to look for their sign. They are next to other shops/vendors/etc.

When I walked in I was expecting to have to re-explain everything in regards to what I was looking for. The same man I spoke to greeted me as I walked in and recognized my voice and said "Ah, I have just what you were looking for sir" and pulled out the cable.

As we rang up my transaction I looked around, this place is packed with everything electronic you cold cram into a vehicle. Computer nerds (like myself) think of Fry's as a nerd's Heaven, perhaps this is the same for car audio/security/etc.

He asked if I was looking for anything else and I declined but told him I wold be back. He handed me some of his cards and asked if I could write a review (honest request for a review - I can respect that). And so here I am, especially since he gave me a deal on the cable.

Closing comments:
This guy could have easily asked me to re-describe the cable I was looking for, tossed it to me and finished our coversation with "thanks". But he actually took the time to ask me about the reciever I was using to make sure what he was selling me was going to work (it does with zero problems by the way).

He kept with me even though there were others in the store, and even waved me off as I left (great for customer service, a shame that nobody does that anymore). And even when I left there was a mother and child outside who waved goodbye.

Save yourself the expensive hassle of going to other places and make this your first stop.

I am a teacher in a large school district in east san jose. When my car was vandalized i learned the hard way that the best defense against a break-in is a visible alarm. A fellow teacher recommended guru, he said many of our co-workers had wised up to the alarm installation as periodically we endure these crime sprees in school parking lots (they leave the alarmed cars alone, usually). Guru is #1!!! He gives a teacher discount and you will be impressed by the inventory and the fast moving motivated staff. I enjoyed hanging out there and seeing some of the awesome show cars that were getting installations. HIGHEST SCORE IN EVERY CATEGORY!!!

i buy an amp from them and to start they over.charge me 20 bucks but i let it go because i want to support my local businesses. I Take the amp home and my dad (a certified electrician) helps me hook it up to the old wires that worked for several months on my last amp. The amp powers up but the speaker terminals are broken and will not recieve power.Makes you wonder if the product was really new eh? I took it to a professional sound shop which checked everything and determined the amp is broken he even popped the speakers with the subwoofer wires to confirm it was the amp. So i took it back to them and ONCE AGAIN they ripped me off. He claims theres a 20% restocking fee which i was never informed during the purchase BTW IF YOU READ THE RECEIPTS IT SAYS NO REFUNDS???? I WONDER WHY? so he refunded me 159/220 which btw is taking alot more than 20%. All in all this man is a dishonest liar who does not deserve to be in business.

I went to Guru's on yesterday to buy some speakers the guy on the phone said he would give me a deal on. When I got there he started acting forgetful and said he didn't recall the price we talked about. He then tried to sell me some speakers I didn't want. but since I was already there I bought them. I went to Fry's electronics after and seen the same speakers for way cheaper then the ones I bought! I went to return them and he tried to match there price and then tried to upgrade me. I didn't want any of that. I had to argue with him to get my money back which I finally did and went to Fry's to buy my beat. installed myself which was so easy. I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND this store at all! Plus its really messy!

Whenever I need car audio, car security, at times i'll call him cause GURU just might have or possible he can get it in his hands on it with the best price. Ive been buying goods for over 15 years and my prices just get better. He's honest and fair and if you catch him on a really good day he is very generous and throw in a few extras. Matter fact my 7 year old loves Guru I guess it's the candy thats free for the kids but 25cent for adults. Regardless if he's not there his co-pilot Raj will certainly takecare of you. But it's a must to meet the Man GURU and the crew Weddo his install man nows whats sounds all about

Pros: Location and parking

Cons: closed on sundays but thats cause Guru told me leave some fish for the rest of the stereo stores to make money its sunday family.

I never knew a store like this even existed. When you walk in, all you see is every brand in car audio imaginable. From Polk to JL Audio (really high-end) they have everything. It's one of the only Car Audio stores I feel safe buying from. Everything is warrantied and they do good clean installs. They mostly meet or beat all other store prices. I'm not going anywhere else for my Car Audio.

Cons: A Bit Messy

I recently bought an amp and some subs from Guru Electronics. I looked all over, but couldn't find a better price! Their service is good too.

Guru electronics has everything in Audio/video for your car. From Kenwood to Sony, guru has it all. What I love the best is that it is family owned, so I can always negotiate the price. The more I buy, the more I save.
