Excellent selection from low end crap to high end stuff. New-old stock from a year ago at great prices. If you know what to shop for you can get a steal here. I grabbed some Boston's that were 700.00 for 350.00. I did my homework. Dutton

I'm not that knowledgeable on car audio equipement so I was hoping that when I went to this store id be able to learn a few things so id no what to get. instead of showing me the most expensive gear he showed me what I was looking for and compared options and prices. Another words he started low then went up. He wasn't tryin to jip me he was very informative and helful..after comapring prices from this store and others, stereo warehouse can't be beat on prices, unless u go on the internet, but why bother with all the issues that incurs. Now that I know they got best rates and qualty product I'm going back soon to get my car hooked up!

I recently called Stereo Wharehouse to ask about having an alarm/automatic entry installed. When I called I asked how long it would take to have these things installed. I was told 2 hours. I handed the keys to the installer at 10:30 AM and he handed the keys back to me at just before 4:00 pm. When I first went in to talk about what I wanted done. I spoke to a woman and told her that I didn??t want the alarm to ??go off?. I just wanted the pager thing to go off. She never told the installer this. I could see that she was busy talking and texting on her blackberry. So, the installer just cut the wire and said come back in and I??ll put in a toggle switch. After a phew miles of leaving Stereo Warehouse I discovered that every time I used my turn signal the door locks would lock and unlock. Also: the installer did not replace some of the panels he removed, left several screws he removed from other panels lying on the floor of my vehicle and left sort of a mess from his stripped wires lying around. For $550.00 I would have thought he could at least clean up his mess. A phew days later I came back to have this corrected and the guy I talked to said that the installer wasn??t working that day. (couldn??t anyone else there have fixed the problem?) And that he would be back to work next Saturday at (9:00 am). I came back the following Saturday at around 11:00 am and was told that he wasn??t working that day. So then a sales guy said that he would look at it and fix it. He did, but after I left I got on the freeway and saw that he didn??t close the hood of my van and it was just sort of flappin in the breeze. My question is : What the hell kind of operation are you running?

I've got to be one of Stereo Warehouse's oldest customers. I've been a customer of Dutton's since a previous shop of his called Car-Fi back in 1988. They always have the best price of any local dealer. True you can find things for a few bucks less on the internet, but you won't find a reliable or knowledgeable person to help you. Plus being a loyal customer has it's rewards, prices become negotiable and if you are a regular customer they'll take good care of you with even better deals than you'll find on the internet. I was shocked to read some of these posts and think they are completely ridiculous lies. I've purchased a lot of gear from them AND had a lot of things installed and never had a problem in 22 years of dealing with them. They've always gone the extra mile to make sure I'm happy. If you've got a problem stop by in the morning and talk to Dutton, I'm 100% confident he'll take care of you.

I ordered a pair of Component Speakers off Amazon with the hopes of having it professionally installed. Unfortunately few car audio shops will rarely do the install, so I was quite surprised when Car Stereo Warehouse said that they would do the work, and only for a modest $40. I was told to get to the shop early, so I drove about sixty minutes to the Aurora location. Once arriving, not but 90 minutes after given the estimate, I was told that there is no way they could do the install for $40, of which the clerk I dealt with told me that he thought I had only wanted to install one speaker. One speaker. Not the set, but one. The quote jumped to $125; as the installation of component speakers can be time consuming, and after eating up a morning worth of driving, I decided to pay the $125 (a shame on me to be sure).

The installer told me I would have to wait about two hours; I came back after two and a half, and he asked me to wait another hour (for a total of about four hours). The installation looked clean, but as 100% of speakers are essentially hidden from view, I figured that as long as the speakers worked, the install job would be sufficient. They did not, and it was not. When rolling down both front windows to test for the necessary clearance between window and speaker, both windows scraped against the speakers. The whole system then went dead. The installer quickly took apart my doors to get to the speakers; he had not screwed them in correctly, and had mounted the small crossover boxes in a bad location.

After an additional 20 minutes of work, the installer said it was as good a fit as I could possibly hope for with a Subaru. While Subaru's certainly make aftermarket stereo installs a hassle, they are not impossible, and for a price of $125, should be installed with as much precision as a Honda or Toyota (both relatively simple cars to install aftermarket parts).

Within five minutes of driving from the Stereo Warehouse lot, the left speaker was not functioning; Al the installer took the door apart again, and noticed that a piece of wire had come loose, a victim of the original improper speaker placement. During none of this time were the myriad of salesmen inside the Stereo Warehouse (there were six and only one customer) able to breakaway from the Huskies game to give me a hand. Finally reaching an available clerk, I was offered 10% off my next purchase and was told "well dude, things happen." Not the answer I was looking for after some five hours into the ordeal.

I was not interested in handouts, such that 10% off could be called a handout, but I wanted only for the work to be done correctly and work into the future. I take responsibility for paying the outrageous price (albeit industry standard, I was lied to by Paul originally, of the Stereo Warehouse, so as to get me into the store) but I was expecting competent workmanship. Over the two weeks following, I contacted the store to speak with the owner with the intention of having the speakers reinstalled; he never returned my call. Thusly, I contacted my bank and filed a fraudulent claim against the Stereo Warehouse based on the poor installation work.

What to learn from this: While Car Toys or Best Buy may not offer the most engaging buying experience, both of their companies are large enough that if a mistake is made, they will take responsibility and correct the mistake. As well, they are bound to offer their advertised lifetime warranties on work done to one's car. It has been about one month since the install, and the speakers ceased to function about a week ago; I had to spend about two hours redoing the poor installation work (a headache i was hoping to avoid altogether). Avoid Car Stereo Warehouse; while Car Toys is hardly the ideal option, Car Toys is located about two blocks south of the Warehouse on Aurora, and they will match or beat installation prices (you need only ask).

I stopped in to buy some speaker spacers, amp install kit, and possibly a new amp. But after a walk around the store I just couldn't bring myself to pay 2x for items I could get else were or online for alot less. While I was in the store I over heard someone ask for some 5 way pioneers, the kid at the counter said they don't make those. I know they make those I have them installed in my car. She replied I know they make them my cousin has some. Makes me wounder if this place is knowledgeable. No one approached me to offer assistance for the 10 minutes I was in the store, even when I walked over to the counter they were a bit hesitant. So in the end I bought the spacers only because I really needed them this weekend I had the rear off my car torn apart to get the speakers in, and ended up paying 2x what they cost online, only to get home and find that one of the spacers has a hideous stress mark down both side, so they won't be going in my car. I took a look at my reciept when I got home ALL SALES FINAL. I called I can't take them back

These guys were the REAL better way to go.

After the competition tried to upsell me (amplifier, subwoofer, etc,), when all I really needed was to replace my blown factory speakers, I decided to check out Stereo Warehouse.

I walked in, and within 5 minutes they had sold me some great, basic replacement speakers without trying to send me home with a whole new system.

Installation went relatively fast. Their waiting area could be a little better, but for the price (installation was almost half of that at the competitors) I am not going to complain much.

The staff is colorful. I was surprised at the expletives, but I didn't care. You may want to leave the kids in the car when you come in. :)

And by the way, my system sounds just fine! Thanks guys!

We have had radios and satellite receivers (Sirius) installed at Stereo Wharehouse.
They have been courteous and extremely helpful, specifically with problems with Sirius reception (which were no fault of Stereo Warehouse): they talked with Sirius and found the source of the problems. We would not have been able to get that kind of help ourselves from Sirius. No charge to us.
This is the only place in town where we would have automobile audio equipment installed or worked on.
(We have had them do installations in our Subaru Forester and our VW Vanagon.)
By the way, besides the courtesy and work, we like very much the easy humor there.

I will first start by letting everyone that I am an installer at Stereo Warehouse. I have been working there for about 6 years. I've been reading some of the bad reviews and would like to clear the air. I can't even begin to tell how many repeat loyal customers we have and people that love our store. And yes I have seen A few upset customers but never because we were rude or overpriced. Some people just think they should get everything for nothing or that we should replace gear that is way out of warranty. I think every store deals with crazy people once in awhile. And for the people that say we are rude, I can say that I have never been treated better anywere else I have worked. If you haven't been to our store you realy should check it out. Its insane how much cool gear we have. And even if you don't buy anything I'm sure you will enjoy our store. And as far as our our staff goes... We are all realy in to car audio and know our stuff. So before you are turned away by a few bad reviews come check it out for yourself. You will be happy you did!!!

The guys at stereo warehouse have always been helpful. They have installed both of my amps and even though there were problems both times (one bad amp, one bad head unit), they fix it every time. Even doing it for free when the next amp arrived and working out a different way to hook up my broken head unit (both bought from crutchfield). Not only that but they really do know what they are talking about and will treat you like a real person.

Thanks Stereo Warehouse.

As I expected from the commercial these are a bunch of crazy people. I was initially greeted by all things a woman who actually had an IQ. I was then greeted by an older fellow who joked a lot and treated me like a person and not a walking wallet. A little heavy on the playful banter though (but then again I speed sometimes).

Install of the machine took about fifteen min. I thought they were going to say they couldn?t do it when the
Guy handed me my keys

Overall I saved a good $50 bucks on my alpine minus 10 for gas is a $40.00 savings from the place that usually gets my business. Overall Well worth the drive from Tacoma.

Guy handed me my keys

Overall I saved a good $50 bucks on my alpine minus 10 for gas is a $40.00 savings from the place that usually gets my business. Overall Well worth the drive from Tacoma.

Pros: fun

Cons: low rent

I've never had a problem with stereo warehouse! And I'm actually headed there today to get a deck installed, I didn't even need an appointment!! And I actually purchased my deck from stereo warehouse a few years ago for a crazy price! I love the deck.

For being a place that isn't a franchise like the expensive, bestbuy/magnolia hifi this place is awesome. I went into stereo warehouse about a month ago and asked for a far out system that i'll spend $1,000 on. I then got quotes and wrote them down. The next day i went to Best buy.. half the watts for twice the price.. I mean im looking to buy a great system and heres best buy giving me the worst thing they got. Dual Subs with a 300 watt amp. C'mon..how stupid could i be. Next place i went to was Car Toys. Everyone loves car toys. I mean a great staff that doesn't know what theyre talking about, and to top it off the installers that thing they're so great for having the BEST INSTALLER OF THE MONTH plaqs. Well i found nothing there either. I went back to stereo warehouse. Got myself a brand new pioneer premier cd player. 4 15 inch JBL Powers. and a 3,500 watt amp for about 30% off what it would have been. If you want to get hooked up you tell them you got money and you want something that'll rattle your neighborhood. Im glad i went to stereo warehouse. Now all the neighbors get pissed and its the best feeling when you see someone shaking your head at you :-)

I buy all of my car audio equipment here! I can't get enough. Not only are the prices really reasonable but the staff ACTUALLY knows what they are talking about. The selection is great and you can't beat the service.

I don't know what is up with the bad reviews here, because I have been shopping at SW for years with no problems. I notice that the bad reviews are all by Anonymous, as well, so I am wondering if they were posted by Car-Toys emplyees or what...

I was just there last month again, replacing a stolen car stereo. The staff always seems quick, ready to help, and knowledgeable. And the prices are the best! I went in for an advertised special for $79.99, and although they were out of that model they offered me the newer model of the same stereo for only ten dollars more. It was installed in under twenty minutes. I will always go there for new car stereo needs!

Stereo Warehouse is the place to go! I've been there several times and some of those times, I wasn't even there to buy anything and I made that fact known to salesman when I was there so they didn't feel like they needed to put fourth a great effort. None the less, they strike up a convorsation about what they love (stereo equipment ) and tell me about some of the new stuff to the market. And even though I'm not buying they treat me just the same as any paying customer. Sure..... like any warehouse style establishment with any kind of a demand the employees are busy sometimes and you have to wait. But hey! Such is life. As far as knowledge goes most of the staff I've seen in there have been there for a long time. (Unlike best buy, or some other impersonal, souless establishment with a turnover rate like a fastfood joint.) That says something! They are totally up to any question you have to ask. If they don't know, they ask someone and find the answer. Anyways please go and check this place out if you have a chance. Oh! To the guy that says" He heard that the owner is a pedophile." (PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!)Go find a big cliff and play Peter Pan. It's because of little faggots like you who can't find anything to do but wine like the pre menstruel moody woman that you are. I mean really! Where do you come up with stuff like that? How do you or your friends know what a pedophile looks like? Take some time and research something before you make serious accusations like that. Do you even know the owners name? Didn't think so.

HAVE A NICE DAY :-)

I have been shoping at Stereo Warehouse for several years now. I feel compelled to write a review because of the exceptional service on my last visit. I have equipped several vehicles over the years and I have always been blown away by price and service. Lately I took an old truck of mine that they put a stereo in about 10 years ago. I was expecting to by a new stereo. They spent alot of time trouble shooting and found the problem. It works as good as new. Thanks Stereo Warehouse !

I have been a Stereo Warehouse customer for years. I have always been treated great by the sales staff. They don't try to upsell and pressure you like other car audio stores, if you can even call the other guys a car audio store. If you haven't been to stereo warehouse you better check it out. You wont believe what they have there. They carry everything you could imagine except for cell phones. Then again, when were cell phones a part of car audio? I guess what it all comes down to is that if you haven't been there you have never seen a real car stereo store. Peace.

Stereo Warehouse is the only place I will shop. The employees are very friendly and courteous. Not only that, they are extremely knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. To contradict what the other reviewers said, there return ploicy is very clearly stated on their receipts. They have always gladly done exchanges for me as long as it was within the return period.For people who don't like to go to the corporate, commission sales floor, Stereo Warehouse is the place that rocks! And they have great prices!

Echoing the thoughts of the previous reviewer, I too had a problem with their return policy. I went to return the speakers, and they wouldn't let me do it. I mean, it was horrible customer service. Sure, their prices might be great; but you sure aren't paying for customer service. The manager was rude, and very confrontational. I really don't understand how they are still in business. In a world where prices are getting more and more similar every place you go, it is service that sets businesses apart. Poor Poor grade here.

PROS: um, none
CONS: Rude salespeople, and proposterous return policy

I purchesed speakers from stereo warehouse. Unfortunately they didn't work out. I returned them after a week. There was no policy on my reciept. The manager would not let me return my items. Their return policy was in a "hidden" or not an obvious place. I was upset and still calm and polite when discussing this with the employee. The manager's behavior was uncalled for. She was very argumentative and unprofessional. I did get to exchange my items. However, I would have preferred a credit to my account. Because of the way I was treated and the slyness of the return policy posted, I will not purchase or recommend this business to anyone.

Good: The gear they have is pretty well priced.. Bad: Installation - two things... 1 - they set my air bag light off and would not reset it. 2 - When they wired my amp in they melted a fuse holder... so they used another one next to it.

Message from Stereo Warehouse

Please DO NOT judge our store by this website most of these reviews are not TRUE and are by employees of other stores.we are not perfect and sometimes we make mistakes we have had great suscess in making most people happy. To bad this site is for the people we cannot help because they break equipment over and over and think because they spent $100 we should work on there cars for free forever and should get new speakers every time they blow them up due to there ABUSE. You never see many reviews from the thousands of our happy customers. Our sales people are trained in system design and product knowledge only. We are the best Car Stereo Store in The USA we are very proud of our store and the HONEST way we treat our GOOD customers
