Stereo Installation Facts

 What Should I Plan on Spending?

This depends on multiple factors. The price mainly relies on what you want to spend. We have such a wide variety of products and possibilities, we can do builds that are from dirt cheap to extremely expensive.

Another factor is your vehicle. Sometimes, vehicles require special parts that cost a pretty penny and make your minimum price much higher than normal. When you come to us, we give you a free consultation which includes questions about your vehicle. 

Lastly, your price will be determined by what you want to add to your sound. There are many ways you can go with a new system and sometimes simply adding a subwoofer can go a long way. We want to hear what you think your current sound lacks so we can make professional recommendations on what will make you happy in the end. Your satisfaction is what matters the most to us.

What Warranties Do I Get?

All of our installations come with a lifetime warranty so your satisfaction is guaranteed. We want you to have the best experience with your car audio system and to not worry when something goes bad.

Alongside of our workmanship warranty, our products come with their own respective manufacture warranty. If anything goes wrong with our installation where you have also bought the products from us, we will either fix it or get replace the broken item under warranty at no cost to you.

How do I schedule an appointment?

We can either schedule an appointment via phone, email, or in person. Our availability varies depending on how booked we are. Sometimes we will be able to get you in same day, sometimes it may take a few days to get you in. If you are wanting a product that we don't have in stock, we will have to wait until we receive it.

We always recommend that you stop by so we can show you what we have on display! We have a showroom filled with head units, speakers and subwoofers that you can test out.

How Much Will the Car Alarm Cost?

The price will depend on a few factors such as what vehicle you have and what features you want. We charge at an hourly rate and in 15 minute increments, so you're paying exactly what you're getting instead of a flat rate.

What Car Alarm Options Do You Have?

We've got various Compustar options in stock. For example, if you're simply looking for the cheapest security, we have a basic alarm system that comes with 2 fobs, shock sensors, tilt sensors, and a start kill. Our other options can include the Drone Module (Module that lets you use your phone anywhere in the world to start and/or monitor your vehicle), remote start and alarm bundle, 2-way systems, higher range, etc.

For both remote starts and alarm systems, we carry Compustar products exclusively. We truly believe in this brand and know they have the most reliable products out there. At Max Speed and Sound, we like to focus on quality over anything else and that is what Compustar provides.

How Does a Car Alarm Protect My Vehicle?

  • Any car alarm that you get installed with us comes with a starter kill switch. This means that if anyone breaks into your vehicle and pushes the start button or turns the key, it won't start.
  • Every car alarm from us comes with a shock sensor. If your car had any kind of force on it, the alarm will go off. We are able to set the sensitivity to your preference.
  • Our car alarms also come with tilt sensors. Anytime the car is tilted over a threshold (that we are able to set according to your preference), the alarm will go off. Many customers like this feature due to the uproar in catalytic converter thefts.
  • Most of our alarm systems either come with a Drone Module or are Drone Module compatible. The drone module gives you the ability to monitor your vehicle from anywhere in the world using your phone. This requires a monthly fee and can come with many other features depending on the plan you choose.

Do Your Car Alarms Come With a Warranty?

All of our installations, including car alarms, come with a lifetime workmanship warranty. Alongside of this, the remotes come with a 1-year manufacturer warranty. If the remote breaks or the battery dies, you may come to us to swap it out as no cost to you.

Guide to Finding the Best Radio Replacement Services

Upgrading your car's radio system can be a complex process, especially when you're not technologically savvy. Finding the right radio replacement services is crucial to ensure you get the best quality and price. When it comes to Radio Replacement, it's important to consider several factors such as the radio's compatibility with your vehicle, the features you need, and the after-sales services offered by the provider.

With the wide variety of radio systems available in the market, it can be overwhelming to find one that suits your needs and preferences. One way to simplify your search is by comparing different radio replacement services based on reviews and ratings. However, keep in mind that the most expensive service is not always the best. It's more important to find a radio replacement service that offers great value for money.
