Horror stories, we've heard them over and over... The "backyard install" that started a car fire so bad that the wiring of the entire car melted away, leaving the car unusable and worthless? Yeah, we know that guy. Maybe you do too. After all, you probably know someone who's had a friend, cousin, brother, boyfriend, or a friend's cousin's boyfriend to do something on their car. We can tell you those installs are rarely pretty or safe.
You buy online to save money. We know this. But when it comes to your car it doesn't make a lot of sense to risk thousands just to keep a few bucks in your wallet. Trust the professionals. Why?
Professional installers are trained to know the ins and outs of a car electrical system—this is why they are called professionals. They know what is safe (and not safe) when it comes to installing headunits, amplifiers, capacitors, monitors, subwoofers, alarms and more. And sorry but no, if you happen to be an electrician, you're still not qualified to install car stereo components
The professional installer also has the correct tools available so nothing is broken during the install. We're talking to you, Mr. Door Panels Flapping in the Wind and to you, Miss Scratched Dash. Butter knives are not intended to remove stock radios! Do you really want to have to explain to your friends why your cool new touchscreen GPS In-Dash receiver is surrounded by white scratches on that nice leather dashboard? Hmmm... Definite deduction in your cool factor score.
