How do i begin... First off they deserve NO stars but i can't do that on this site. Chris the assistant manager thinks he owns the place. He has no say and can't fix anything if stuff goes wrong, he just calls his boss. They supposedly pride themselves on customer service but he was extremely nasty and hateful towards me because my car was having problems because THEY didn't install things right. The district manager Rob is a joke, he is always on "vacation" and can't be bothered. This is the shadiest company i have ever come across and i advise all people to go to other places! It has become so serious that i have had to get a lawyer and am now suing them for all the damages done to my honda. Don't trust them and don't sign ANYTHING they give you. They are very good at entrapment with contracts, you have been warned. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else because it is awful and i am now spending a small fortune to get justice.

Pros: NONE!

Cons: everything, they steal, lie and kill your car

Rob hooked me up with a great system at a great price. Some car stereo stores really stick it to you on install charges. But not Quality Auto Sound.

After my purchase I thought I was ripped off, went to Sound On Wheels to price shop, and Quality was a major rip off. They sold me a warranty for the warranty that came with the stereo and amp. I'll NEVER go back to Quality, I'll shop at the specialty store of Sound On Wheels from now on!!!

Went in to the store to buy a new head unit for my 2000 Mustang. It has a Mach system, which sounds great, but I wanted some features of a modern stereo. I'm not an expert, but I have installed several stereos with no problem. I started asking about a stereo, and if they knew how much the parts would cost, in addition to the $1 install fee on a 2000 Mustang.
He asked if I had the Mach system. When I said yes, he started telling me how, in order for it to sound right I would have to replace all my speakers, my factory amp, and install a sub-woofer, otherwise it would sound hollow (like an old AM radio). I didn't really believe him. I drove up the street to Circuit City (and later confirmed with Crutchfield) that it is just a matter of buying a $25 wire harness to make the new stereo work with all of the existing components in the Mustang.
This guy at Quality Auto Sound tells me that "it's the same as the Monsoon system on the VW" and "a lot of places won't touch the Mach system becuase of this". He even said, "It will cost a lot to get that new stereo in, but it will sound good."
He neglected to mention the alternative was a $25 part. Don't let these guys fool you.

Pros: Quality equipment

Cons: Overpriced and dishonest.

My girlfriend and I went into the Quality Auto Sound on Littleton Boulevard to get some car speakers installed. Because their prices were so bad I bought some speakers online to get them installed. This apparently is the same as walking into the store and taking a dump on the floor. I was passed off to multiple sales people, finally ending up with the "install manager" (Oddly enough, the second person who has claimed that was his title). He examined both sets of speakers and tried to make nice talk about them, but he was obviously disgusted that I would dare bring in speakers that they didn't carry. They quoted me a price which was ridiculous for 2 sets of speakers ($140).

This is when they became INSANELY rude. I asked them if they could install the speakers that day, they said no, that I would have to drop it off and leave it for the entire day. I asked if they could make an appointment then, as I couldn't just leave my girlfriend's car sitting at their shop all day, and the "install manager" says to me, and this is a direct quote "Sorry, customer owned equipment, you're my last priority". If they are making money on labor, then it shows you what an INCREDIBLE rip-off their prices are.

Nothing they sell is less than 200% higher than the MSRP. Their prices are a joke, the guys they hire are wannabe thugs, and the stores aren't even nice. I would highly advise going to Best Buy, where everyone is nice, and the installers have absolutely no stake in what they install because they are separate from the sales floor.

QAS has REALLY gone down hill, I have spent thousands of dollars there over the years, and their prices have gone up while their service has gone down.

The prices here are way jacked up, and the installs take forever. The speakers are just so so. Also, they act as though the price of things can be changed. "How much would you pay". Just be sraight!

I KNOW FIRST HAND THAT "INSTALLATION DAVE" AND ANY BODY HE HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO PROPERLY TRAIN IS THE RITE PERSON FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE UPGRADE YOU ARE SEEKING. MY ADVICE TO ANYBODY THAT WISHES TO HAVE A KILLER SOUND SYSTEM INSTALLED IN THERE VEHICLE IS TO DO YOUR RESEARCH! IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TO ASK FOR. THESE GUYS ARE PROS BUT THERE NOT MIND READERS.
THIS LAKEWOOD STORE IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING YOUR LITTLE MIND CAN DREAM UP, MILD TO WILD! REMEMBER THAT ITS NOT CHEEP TO HAVE SERIOUS CUSTOM WORK DONE TO ANY VEHICLE, BUT YOU DEFINATELY GET YOUR MONEYS WORTH WHEN IT COMES TO LABOR COSTS.
THE INTIRE OUTCOME OF YOUR EXPERIANCE DEPENDS ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR SALESMAN. IF YOU DONT LIKE WHO YOU ARE WORKING WITH, ASK TO WORK WITH SOMEONE ELSE. IF THAT IS NOT WORKING MAKE SOME TIME TO WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE MAN HIMSELF, MR. ROB V. HE IS A BUISY MAN BUT A FAIR AND HONEST PERSON.
THESE SALESMEN ARE COMMISSION PAID SO BE READY TO HAGGLE, BUT A FAIR DEAL IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THESE GUYS KNOW THERE STUFF, AND SHOULD NOT BE OVER LOOKED WHEN SHOPING FOR CAR AUDIO, VIDEO AND SECURITY. YOUVE GOT MY WORD ON IT

Pros: GREAT INSTALLERS

Cons: HIGH PRICES

.

Quality Auto Sound is a business that uses bait and switch techniques. They claim in their advertising to offer incredibly low prices. What the uneducated consumer is unaware of is the fact that their pricing structure is marked far above the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). Then they trick you into believing you are getting a great deal by offering discounts. Once the discounts are applied, the price is still at or in many cases above MSRP.

Don't be fooled by their unscrupulous sales tactics. They may offer installation for only a dollar, but that is because their pricing is very uncompetitive. For example, I wanted to purchase a Boston Accustics G5 subwoofer. The MSRP from Boston Accustics is $349.99. The sales guy offered to "give me a sick deal". When I pressed for what their price was, I was quoted $499.00...but he would still offer me a great deal. I asked him why they would sell it for so far above MSRP and he stated that was his price. I asked if I could just buy it for MSRP and he said "no way, can't do it for that price!"

I just want everyone to know that it is buyer beware when walking into their stores. You will end up paying much more for comparable products regardless of the discount offered with cheap labor pricing.

I have installed stereo systems and worked with many professional installers in my life so I know something about car stereos and installation. The guys here, however, have zero customer service. If you raise one issue with the way they installed your stereo they treat you like you are the (expletive) of the earth. For example, they installed something in the wrong spot so I had them move it. Now, I have cut up carpet in the first install area. When I brought this up to the guy I worked with he actually told me that if he had known before we started that I was going to complain about these types of things he would not have worked with me. I can't speak for everyone, but in all the jobs I've ever had, if I said this to a customer I would be fired on the spot.

They also jack their prices through the roof. They sell one set of component speakers for $900 when the retail value of them is $600. How is that justified? Oh, that's right, the $1 install. What a load of garbage! Just sell the equipment for the true cost and gauge the install cost from difficulty. Take it from me, if you expect to just get a stereo installed and for everything to be 100% perfect, these guys can do it (this is not likely to happen of course). But, if and when something goes wrong you will regret having gave them your money and business.

I will never shop here again. Unfortunately, I already gave them a large amount of my money and now am stuck with an install warranty with them. I love my stereo, but regret deeply giving these (expletive) my money and business.

Cons: Insanely unacceptable customer service

I have had good times before they got bought out by another company. I bought some speakers and an amp from them. About a month later I went to return a speaker that was covered by the warranty. I was told by the manager that they had been bought out by another company. He told me that they did not sell that brand of speaker and they could not cover it under the warranty. The thing that made me mad is that the same guy who sold me the first set of speakers was trying to sell me another brand of speakers.

PROS: nothing
CONS: the store

Quality Auto Sound is a wonderful place to get any audio systems for your car. They have a great selection. Their staff is highly qualified and knowledgeable about all the products and installation. You cannot beat the $1.00 install deal, which is year round.
