Shawn is awesome! He's the owner and very involved in the business. He won't oversell and give you a good deal. Prices are very reasonable. Shawn is a true professional and very customer service oriented. You won't wrong going to this place. We live about 11 miles away in Katy, TX.

I bought a viper pager alarm and Kenwood in dash radio from them on new years day. I was surprised that they were open. Everything was at good price and it didn't take long to install. I've been a long time customer and used them for all my car audio needs.

This was the experience I've had with my 2014 Accord speaker replacement -- which is something very basic and easy:



1) Techs thought it would be a good idea to install my speaker crossover in the interior bottom of my door panel with BARE wires exposed to moisture. I was greeted with wires that had literally shorted and melted off of the crossover unit.



Was told by owner they solder all connections. Every connection in my vehicle was simply capped and crimped -- no soldered/shrink wrapped connections anywhere.



Update to review: My front speakers were fully replaced without charge and installed properly where crossovers would not be exposed to moisture. Shop let me inspect the work, and soldered these connections.



I'm back up and running, but will need to be clear and inspect work in the future. I appreciate their willingness to make the work right.

Editorial review from Citysearch

Shawn and John (owners) gave me excellent customer service, even on a holiday and while having the flu. They don't just take the money and run... they are determined to make their customers happy. The price I paid was hundreds less than what other places charge. Frank made adjustments after installation and did a great job; he actually had the same car as myself, so he knew exactly what to do... how does it get any better than that?

We had a very good experience with

We had a very good experience with Shawn and his crew. We had found them online and checked their BBB rating.

We explained to Shawn we'd just had our car a/c fixed at another shop that required removal of the dash. When they plugged our radio in, it began to smoke and blew our system. All we wanted was a basic system to replace our factory one. Shawn showed us two radios that would work and he didn't push any expensive systems. He was straight forward about what it would cost and what his crew might find. We settled on the CDE-121 and new wiring. So far the radio works great and we are very satisfied with the customer service and product we bought. We would recommend this place to our friends!

Best Mobile Entertainment Shop in Houston

Just moved to the Houston area and one of my friends suggested to use City Search to find a place to install my car audio & dvd system these guy's seemed to be highly rated, I'm glad I came here they performed a quick and clean install in a much better price than what I was used to in Austin.

Houston's Best Car Alarm and audio Shop

I am not used to writing reviews but I do always read and use them to help me make a decision , but I will write a review for this business, Shawn answered my call asked me what I needed listened to what I wanted and suggested a solution that I thought would work for me after 5 phone calls around my area this is the first time someone sounded genuine still I wanted to go check before I invested my money with these guy's got a good feel went back after a week and got a 5 channel Amp Radio and Speakers and a woofer installed got everything I was promised the work was clean and the system sounded good good people to do business with..

Houston's Best Car Audio & Alarm Shop PERIOD!

Great Staff, the folks at Car Audio Zone are very helpful. Won't try to sell you anything you don't need. The alarm system they installed saved me money on insurance and also gave my car much needed protection.

I also plan to upgrade my sound system soon since I saw some very good Car stereo products there.

Best Car Audio Store In Houston!

Over the past 35 years of owning cars, I've spent a lot of money with various car audio stores, and none come close to the level of service and value provided by Car Audio Zone.

PERIOD!

The owner, Shawn, is personable, knowledgeable, and sincerely cares about his customers. My install was fast and clean - can't ask for much more.

HIGHLY Recommended!

Cannot beat the customer service...

Shawn and his guys do an absolutely excellent job from start to finish.

I deal with people in my business day after day, and most always seem to have an attitude that is fairly transparent in that they always want our money but are never too concerned about the goods or services they give in return.

I never got that feeling with Shawn. He took the time to go over all of the options on a new speaker system with me...installed a satellite radio receiver, and also wired up a couple of fog lights I have on my truck.

He doesn't try to lose you in the numbers the way so many people nowadays do. The man has to make his money (and who can begrudge any man from making a living, right?) but his prices are more than reasonable on the parts and labor -- and his attention to detail and genuine interest in making the customer come away with exactly what they wanted is what, in my opinion, sets him apart from other audio shops.

There are very few people I trust when when it comes to everything from auto mechanics to plumbers to car dealers. When I do find someone that I can actually say I'd recommend to a friend or relative, I keep that contact because I'm aware how rare it is. Maybe I'm just extremely picky -- I don't know...

Shawn is one of those people, though. I have no problem at all throwing him business from friends or relatives. I know they will be taken care of, given straight talk on products and price, and that he will go out of his way to make things right as much as reasonably possible.

Excellent place to do business.

Great place to get Alarm's & Music

I got too know these people through a friend of mine, I needed to get some speaker's changed in my car but the price's were so good that I ended up getting a radio and an alarm on the same visit.

I love my Memphis Car Audio Speaker's, Viper Alarm and JVC radio.

I was treated good and was explained every thing in detail which made my decision easier.

To the point no hassle courteous service, I'm putting a good word i n for them since I also like to be appreciated when I do a good job.

Got a loud system Great Price.

i am very satisfied with this business. they are very professional and friendly but most of all they are VERY VERY EAGAR to please thier customers. they motto is they want you to be happy and satisfied with whatever product you choose to get and will be honest and tell you if that product is the best for your money or not and give their honest opinion on another product that suit your needs no strings attached(ex:make u spend more than what u want2). cause if you are not happy, they are not happy and they will do whatever within reason to make you happy. that is why i came to them and stay with them. i have been here with them for 6yrs now. i had them to install an auto start alarm sytem, power locks, digital radio system, cd changer, speakers with amp.,&sub woofers. i only had minor problems with one or two things and they were more than happy to assist me and worked with me on anything i needed done. so you see why i stayed with them they are honest people/business. i am a woman that is slowly learning about cars and accessories and they didnt take advantage of me and i still come here and you should to maybe i will see you in there sometime...

Car Audio Zone

I had my car radio and alarm installed in San Antonio and they screwed up the wiring bad. I did some research and I chose this place to work on my car. Im so glad I did. The owner Shan had excellent customer service skills and he was very knowledgeable. He was honest and charged me a reasonable price. He has a good installer that knows what he is doing he fixed the wiring on my car and other problems that I didn't know were there. I would recommend Car Audio Zone to anyone!
