recommend me a place to get my audio fixed!

well driving home this morning from charlie my radio just died. well not the radio just the sound died after a hump on the road. so im guessing it's the stock amp finally that gave out.

so i have to fix that now, and the blown rear speakers as well. whats a good place to take the car too. i used to always go to this one guy with a small shop but i think he does too many civics and such. so i dont want him to start ripping everything apart in the back without knowing what he's doing.

so whats a good place to get this done?? anyone??

it could be the amp, but we cant assume in the electronic world. testing needs 2b done. i actually run an installation shop in scar, and no, dont take your bmw to guy who works on "too many civics and such", no offence to him, but as you mentioned he mite not know the ins and outs of bmws... the shop name is safe and sound inst. 4-757-7233,
remember it mite not be the amp.... good luck,.

If its stock the system u want to fix then i recommend Digi Controls
(905)456-8499

they do a lot of work for dealerships and cars that are having electrical problems and such.

For a pro system I recommend 20Hz in toronto .. they are the best and they treat you good too. www.20hzaudio.com

Dont go to any place in brampton .. they all do low quality jobs like "out of sight" and "peel audio"
