car sound system installer

gday all,

can anyone pls recommend me a good, honest, trustworthy, aussie,
competent car stero installer in the southern suburbs of sydney?

even a good auto-electrician is so hard to find these days - i dont really know any that i can 100% trust.

i went to checkout a local outfit at hurstville recently and i couldn't get out of there quick enough.

I was looking for one too last week and as luck would have it a bloke I work with had just taken his VE commy Ute in to to have an upgraded stereo system and sub fitted. He swears by them and has used them on several occasions over the past 13years. They’re at Penrith and have been there for a long time so they’re obviously alright. I’ll be using them in the new year (a few Christmas prezzies for the missus needs installing).
I’ve got their business card on my desk at my office but I won’t be back there for a week. If you’re still interested I can pass on their details (providing Penriths not too far)

Make sure you stick to audio installers. Auto electricians are not good for audio installs. Have a look at what one did to a newly converted HK radio.

indeed...I'm not so sure about audio installers though...had a few family nephews who did it at various audio installers when they were teens to make a bit of money...they had no idea what they were doing at all...I think there is a general problem overall across society of people just not knowing what they are doing or doing poor quality work...it's how things have become...having said that there were plenty of dodgy operators around when I was young as well...

In saying that,
There plenty of dodgy qualified people out here to where I am 🤔
But I must admit there are some of US that take pride in a finish result, maybe that’s why we keep getting more work 🤔
A lot of people think “ ah it’s going under ground in a couple weeks”
Lol yeah BUT how many people walk past or drive past it and how many photos get taken off it

There’s a moral to that story 😎
“Take some pride in your work”

there is a variety or reasons, people spend less time in jobs now, have multiple careers, the rate at which things change is exponential, a decline in technical and science based jobs over the past 30 years...many tech jobs being lost with the demise of manufacturing - just to name a few...but people need to invest a lot of time and hard work to become very good at something...they need to be interested, have a passion, be well trained/mentored and be able to make a decent living...so if any of those things is missing we end up with mediocrity...maybe I'm getting old and cranky but sick and tired of poor work and people not knowing what they should know esp if a "professional"...Geez..I'm sounding like a grump...Bah Humbug!

It's different now compared to when we were young.
How many apprentices are employed as cheap labour toady and pushed out the door when their time is up?
It's the same everywhere. You can't learn a profession with just a few year's training. You start the real learning when you are qualified.

Why does the installer have to be an AUSSIE?
By Aussie, do you mean a fine, bronzed Bro with an acceptable hertiage from the southern suburbs?
Or do you mean a First Australian, one of the people more commonly known as an being of Aboriginal heritage?
Broaden your horizons, you will find that there are many good, honest, trustworthy people of many backgrounds in this wonderful country of ours that excel at what they do.
As for finding someone who takes pride in doing a good job, they can be hard to find, no matter what you want done.
There are mechanics around up here I wouldn't trust to change an air filter. I once had to fix the choke cable and pivot on a local ladie's EH after a local workshop serviced it for her. Another workshop tried to fix the driver's window for her because it wouldn't wind up or down. He cut a block of wood to size and jammed it shut. I had a look and then glued the channel at the bottom of the glass back on and five years later it still works fine.
I am her go to to fix what the local tradesmen stuff up. My favourite was the bloke who couldn't understand what was wrong with the back springs. He kept flipping the shackles down with a tyre lever and as soon he test drove it they popped back up. He came around to me for help. I had to get my EH manual out to prove to him they were meant to be up.
These were all born and bred aussie blokes.

Saw the comments about auto electrics not being great at audio made me laugh. Up on the central coast a good mate of mine took a original radio for a 70s euro car to a well known car audio in the last few months. Installed radio & speaker - radio didn’t work so they advised it was no good. A retired auto spark said grab some wire and put in aerial socket to check - it worked. What was wrong? Aerial plug had been taped up for a couple of years and cleaning the plug fixed it. After that we reinstalled fixed the vibrating newly installed speakers (screws into door card not smart) and it worked great. They charged him$350 and took us an hour to fix it. So doesn’t matter who as long as they can think
