Great shop. Great tinters. Nice people, great prices, what else can you say? Very satisfied customer, I'll be back with more vehicles.

Update: My neighbor also had a great experience here; he got tint and rain guards.

Durham, NC

Wish I'd gone here first! I have a mid-hi level system with two JL audio V2 slash amps, a JL 10w6v2 sub, and Hybrid Audio Technologies Clarus 6.5 components. Since my original installation by Circuit City in 2008, I have tolerated my 300/2 amp going into thermal protection at relatively high SPL and coming back on after about 3-5 seconds with somewhat distorted sound. I visited a "reputable" installer in Raleigh who said I needed to re-wire my whole system because it needed 0 gauge wire and I was only using 4 gauge. He quoted $850.00 for the job. Umm, not so much. I then went to another popular auto technology installer on Glenwood and without so much as even knowing the real problem I was quoted a $250.00 fix. So I waited over a year from the first quote and asked my AAA tire installer if he knew an HONEST car audio installer. He recommended auto acoustics. I made the call and had my car in the Durham shop a week later. Within ten minutes the owner emerged from the installation bay and showed me an inline fuse that was woefully under-rated and had melted plastic on the conductive element. He replaced the fuse and $50.00 later my stereo finally worked as designed. These guys are honest. They are competent. And they do not search for problems you don't have. Highest recommendation. Go here before you go anywhere else.
