Where do u buy ur equipment? - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Crutchfield is good for customer support for the beginners but they are a little high priced.
Sonicelectronix.com has really low prices but not a huge amp selection. Free shipping on all subs. and BOGO Kicker Comps
Loseyourhearing.com is not bad either

Onlinecarstereo.com. Decent prices from what I've seen, although I usually don't buy new equipment. Its just not worth it. The sub for the Regal and rear 6x9'* for the Bonneville I have were used off of a guy on w-body.com, the amp was used off ebay, and a bunch of other random stuff. Car audio loses its value so quickly that its really not worth buying it new unless its something like a head unit or wiring.

I like to buy new, but I don't buy often either. My last Pioneer Premier HU lasted 7 years. But I learned to stay away from motorized faceplates.

I've bought from both www.onlinecarstereo.com and www.sonicelectronix.com

OLCS though is pissing me off right now. Two items I ordered have been back-ordered for a month. Just gonna buy them off eBay I think.

Yeah buddy! I'm very happy with my Sundown amp too, it'* a beast of an amp for sure! I bought mine BNIB off a member on DIYMA, it had never been powered up before I got it and it was about half of what they go for retail so I was happy.

All of my deadening is SecondSkin thanks to two free giveaways on SMD That stuff is kinda pricey so I saved a few bucks there. I hope I never had to deal with db-r (not cause they're bad to deal with cause i've never heard that) cause it probably means my amp isn't working as it should and I need to send it in for repairs. Mobile Solutions, damn they're expensive!
