soundworks and soundsgood, everyone knows they are the top game in town. just go to any import car show, and pretty much every good system setup has been built and pieced together by them.


i think they are just restructuring, i know back then they were already pushing for more online sales.

LOL. you must be kidding me. i got my system done from them in my mustang back in 05 i think. they did such a shitty job i had to go somewhere else to get my system re-done. wiring was crap. they threw 2 10" boxes in my car and taped them together when i wanted just one box. theres wayyy more but im getting angry thinking about it now.

Audio video in north van is a joke. Have a look at the installers, if you can count less than 6 beer cans rolling around the shop per installer, you might be safe, but good luck with that.

also, dragster is a shit brand that no one runs because it's garbage.

Italy makes good shit, like Audison and Hertz, but you won't find it at north shore audio video.

I live in squamish and I still drive out to soundworks or sounds good for my stereo stuff.

i'm getting this information second hand so take it with a grain of salt:

because of the canada line construction, property taxes along the no.3 corridor went through the roof, so the landlord hiked up the rent to the point vader could not do business and closed shop...

what i'm not 100% sure about is whether they are reopening at a new location, or some of the people from vader are opening up a new business under a different name. whatever it is, they are in the unit next to SR/revolution in richmond (which includes GPFX).

Agreed, North Shore Audio Video is a joke... as is Performance at the foot of Pemberton - they think they're pretty baller just because they deal drugs on the side...

I'd say AVU on Lougheed in Coquitlam over most other shops nowadays.

And don't touch Future Shop or Best Buy with a 100 foot pole, ever.

Thanks!
It is true...AVU Coquitlam has closed their car audio department and it sending us their customers and business. We have had a long standing relationship with those guys which is why their faith in us is exemplary.

Interesting... you think my buddy who works in the shop over at AVU Coquitlam would have mentioned he was out of a job or something...?

I'll look into this more.
