Thanks to Eric and the guys at AutoSound In Bedford

I just wanted to post something saying thanks to Eric (EW on the forums) and the guys at AutoSound for taking care of my stereo needs in my 2001 GT. I had been trying to find someone to tackle the 2001 Mach 460 system and after letting one shop have a crack at it which I won't go into here (DFW Stereo in Lewisville is the suck), Eric fixed me up perfectly.

Basically I wanted to remove the stock head unit, add an amp, keep the existing speakers and add my Empeg unit. So out came the stock 6 disc changer and in went the Empeg and to motivate it (The Empeg has no speaker outputs, only pre-amp outs), Eric chose to use add a JL Audio 300/4 amplifier to the system.

Everything turned out great! Top notch installation and it sounds excellent. I'm very pleased with the job and the pricing was more than fair. Anyone looking for quality workmanship and products, I really encourage you to check out AutoSound.

HAHA! I worked at DFW for 2 days before I saw how BUSTED they really are. They wouldnt let me do any installs because this uneducated red neck was hooking shit up jankily and the dumb asian bitch and masood were haters. HAHA! Im REALLY suprised they are still in biss. Think its just a front becaus when I was there they only had 1 install in 2 1/2 days.BWAHAHAHA!

Yea, I had mainly bought some parts there before and never had them do anything for me. I was going to have them put my Empeg in my other car after talking to one of their installers but I ended up going a different way.

I did think the guy they had there installing was a fairly knowledgeable guy but when I took the Mustang back to get it done, he had quit and gone elsewhere but the installer they had at that time swore up and he down he could do it. He had the car a day, didn't install shit in it and managed to blow a fuse for the main line to the amps while trying to tone out the speakers and he chased that for about 4 hours before he figured it out. I'm not holding that against him because shit happens but he didn't exactly ooze confidence after that deal.

To be quite honest, the worst experiences I've had in a long time have been with stereo shops. I got the screw by Custom Stereo and Cellular a while back also so that's one reason I wanted to post about AutoSound. So many crooks out there it's nice to find a place that does quality work and isn't trying to knife you.

Eric is Da Man Very professional group over there at Autosound and the only people I've dealt with recently because I've been out of Car Audio for some time. Last installer's I used was a buddy of mine that I used to work with that was the install manager at the Red Bird Circuit City and also a little shop in Oak Cliff called Sampson's run by a couple of older guys that were brothers. Anybody ever hear of them?

BTW KungFuCow, you plan on going to any GTG's? I'd love to check out that Empeg unit.

Sure.. I'll bring it out. The Empeg is an awesome unit. It's too bad Sonicblue dropped it. They got blown out on closeout and unfortunately they don't have any left. I was going to buy another one for a spare.

Ya, I remember reading about the Empeg and some other options that came out a few years ago before MP3 players became so prevalant. Really nice unit and the only problem I could see would be the hassle with hooking it up to a computer to download the music. But the way things are now a days I'm sure you would be able to figure out someway to do it wirelessly.

Like I said, I'd love to check it out. Unfortunately I'm only free on the weekends because of work. Hopefully I can catch you at one of the events.

Hey guys,

Just don't mistake that DFWstereo for the one in grapevine on 26. I've got a friend that works there and although I haven't needed them to do any installation stuff myself, the installers put in his system and it sounds damn good. I've picked up a few things here and there and I wouldn't mind going back pretty soon when I get some more $$$
