Sound Wave Customs is amazing. I’ve recently had lights installed and tint on my 2014 Tundra. Going back to get my speaker system installed by them. No other place beats these guys.

So i stopped today, was a little short on time the guys worked fast and did a great install for me. I will be back again thanks for the quick professional service.

I had SWC put an alarm with remote start and perimeter sensor in my custom GMC Safari van. They did an excellent job in explaining my options and completing the install in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them.

This is a superior shop, I recommend them to anyone that wants to have professional work done with professional results and a great overall experiance. My Supra now blows the windows out with amazingly tuned and properly powered sound.

I came in yesterday to get a Remote Start added onto my car. Ethan and his whole team fit me in last minute but made sure everything was done properly and not a rush job. I also Sound Wave Customs because they are the ONLY Compustar Pro Dealer in the 757!!!! I definitely plan on coming back to get some other additions to my car in the next few weeks!!!!

Sound Wave did a beautiful job on my stereo. Offered 3 options so I could chose my price point for my need. Staff was awesome. I would definitely recommend them for audio needs.
