    Car stereo purchase - any vendors that you would recommend

    I'm taking a couple of longer road trips in the car this year and would like to upgrade the stereo to something better than stock. Likely a Double DIN unit.

    Any recommendations on a good local shop to supply and install ? Someone with a decent selection, does good work, and good after sales service for warranty issues.

    I had my last stereo supplied & installed by Ralph's but their selection is a bit thin. Also, they messed up my appointment and kept me hanging around an extra 3-4 hours. That left me unlikely going back unless there was a compelling reason to do so.

    Edit : I should have mentioned that a Vancouver shop would be preferred with Burnaby or Richmond being a close second.

    Give my buddy Keith a call.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

    360 fabrication in abbotsford. They did my trucks stereo a while back.
    Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.

    Whoever you get to do the work, don't let them know your home or work address.

    I would have said Ralph's. They put the immobilizer in my wife's previous car, years later the fobs died one after another and had to get it towed.Tthe BCAA guy couldn't even find the installation, said it was the best he'd seen. Tow truck driver took it to Ralph's, dropped the keys through the mail slot after hours, it was done the next afternoon.

    Vision's has a good selection, but I had a monster pain in the ass dealing with them last time on special order stuff. They're like the Keystone Kops over there, but if you're patient they can have good prices. Can't speak to their installation skills though.

    Sometimes I really miss A&B Sound.

    Pick up your toys online at and install yourself - easy stuff.
    "Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."

    When I used to spend money on this kind of stuff I always went to Performance Car stereo in North Vancouver.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
