I love to get snail mail when it’s personal – don’t you? Especially an unexpected thank you note. It’s better than free dessert, I think!
StereoMan provides in-home service and car stereo installation by appointment throughout the Asheville area, Tuesday through Saturday. Backlog for appointments is often a week or more, and bench backlog is currently four weeks. Please call to schedule your car or in-home service. Car stereo walk-in’s are welcome but be aware that wait time can be lengthy. If you have equipment to drop off for repair, our store is now open Tue-Sat 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please be prepared to make a $25 deposit on all repair items, that is my minimum bench charge. For your convenience we accept all major credit cards.
I posted about a strange feedback problem we encountered with our new Scosche subwoofer in a 2014 Honda Accord that turned out to be caused by a “noise canceling” system in the car, and promised a follow-up. Well, here it is. The customer came back, we disconnected the factory noise canceling system, and the customer was very happy with the work and with our Scosche product. So are we!
For $295 installed, it’s hard to beat this woofer. It’s compact, powerful enough for most people if you’re not into competition or brain damage, and musical enough to fill in the low bass that’s lacking from most car systems. I hope we can continue to offer it at this price point!
A problem every stereo shop dreads AND celebrates! We’ve been so busy installing new stereos and speakers, we’re running low on inventory!
Truth be known, we have enough of almost everything, except . . .
Our Pioneer supplier inexplicably delayed our last order by four days. We are now out of our Bluetooth model. We’ll be getting that order on Monday the 21st, they promised. So we’ll be good to go next week.
Our Nakamichi supplier has been inundated with orders for their terrific, inexpensive speaker products. We’re out of the low cost 6.5s, so we’ll be providing the higher level product at a $10 discount until we can get some more.
We love our customers! And we thank you for helping to make our business successful. We’re doing everything we can to assure you get the products and services you want!
We’re all set up to make your installation and service purchases easier to manage. We can now accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards for all installation and repair charges.
StereoMan gets a lot of requests for a top quality, reasonably priced monoblock amp. Here’s one that’s sure to please!
The Nakamichi NGDT600.1 is a one-ohm stable Class D amp rated at 600WRMS (500WRMS into a 2 ohm load) – plenty enough power to overwhelm your passengers and make your presence known three blocks away.
With remote level control, adjustable bass boost, low pass and subsonic filters, this amp provides all the control you need. Nakamichi build quality assures years of trouble free operation. And like all Class D amps, it’s amazingly efficient, requiring only a 60amp fuse and an 8ga primary wire, and has a tiny 8 1/4 x 9 1/2 inch footprint. Easily fits under (or behind) any seat!
StereoMan’s price on this amp is $284 installed in most cars, including the wire kit.
After much thought and deliberation, the StereoMan & Son team figured out a way to present installation prices that is not too terribly confusing. Or so we hope! Please do check it out if you’re looking for car stereo work and see if it help you. Or not. And let us know.
