Screwed over..

So last week I go into Pasadena sound.. And I ask em to install new speakers and an amp for em since I don't wannna get rid of the look of the factory radio... So they say the can do it I told em I'm in bit of a hurry and teu said no problem.. That day I got stuck there 2 hours longer what they had told me and they didn't even finish.. Next day I took it back they spend anoter hour doing it.. And they said they're done I listened to it sounds like crap!!! And I told em gimme my money back and blah blah blah.. An arguement started an I left... I called my atorney and went back the next day... They got scared shitless and gave my money back and I kept the products..


Now.. Any one know of a realllyyyy goood shop that knows whay they're doing in the Los Angeles area? To get new speakers and wired correctly sound perfect? Another thing the beeping if I leav my halos on doesn't beep anymore.. And the signal clicks come from my speakers.. Ya I got screwed over but I got my
money back.. So any shop advice on where I should go to? I want this done asap can't stand it

You kept the equipment?

Sounds like you ALMOST got screwed over.

I'm not an audio guy but next time I'd make them explain exactly what they are doing and why. At least you can have an idea wether they sound like they know what they're talking about.

You got lawyered up before you even gave em a chance to make it right and because it took an extra 3 hours? Seems a little harsh especially since you kept the equipment...jmo

reflexx, a local audio shop that I hear wonders about is Louder Than Life Audio

http://www.ltlaudio.com/

If you remember the Motorgen Meet where we first met you, their shop is very close to that location

Most if not all times you go to find someone to streighten out another shops' poor quality work whether audio/video, engine, tune etc it will cost double; even if they will take on the project. Most shops want to sell you product and install it. Not bring in a box of parts to install that they did not sell you. Hope your system is back to stock so they will have a fighting chance to do it properly for you once you find a quality shop. Good Luck

I have to disagree. Chevy has always had really low quality stock sound systems IMHO. And this one is so-so at best.

I will admit that I can listen to the volume at it's highest setting and not hurt my ears. I used to have really big systems in my old cars and they took some of my hearing.

So, I'm actually okay with leaving this stock system in the Camaro because I don't want to damage my hearing any more than I already have.

What?

The reviews they have on the internet, for the most part, say they have "the best prices" in that area, but usually the customer is not satisfied with the customer service or installation.

Can you elaborate on the work they did? What speakers were installed and where. What amp was used, etc...

20 years ago I was into the car audio thing back when Rockford Fosgate meant something and it was made in USA. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the stock, non-Boston Acoustics stereo in this car. So much so that I will not be adding or changing a thing.

I just googled them and this is one of the first things that popped up.
It was about an alarm system they were supposed to install or something

Hmmmm.....Amp install is not that difficult.

Power, ground, remote turn on, RCA inputs and wire up the speaker(s). Not sure how that could be dicked up.
