What our Amazing Clients Say

I highly recommend Certified Sounds! As a female, I was really overwhelmed when my radio went out. I called Certified Sounds & they were able to get me an appointment that same day.The staff there was extremely professional & nice. Within an hour, my new radio was installed & they even showed me how to use it! The quality of service & their products were great and the prices weren't over the top. I would definitely go back in the future.

This is really the second full sound system that Certified Sounds has done for me. I was so please with Dereck and his team that I decided to really take it to the next level with my classic car. These folks have treated me with the utmost respect and are very enthusiastic about the work they do. I chose to do some add ons based on their recommendations and I couldn't be more pleased. Their custom work is first rate! My 1972 Mustang now has a sound system that befits that great classic muscle car. Can't wait for them to put a proper sound system in the hand me down Prius that I will get from my wife really soon!

Derek has now installed 2 car stereos for me and I have been very pleased with the quality of the product and customer service both times. In addition, Derek is professional and personable. He doesn't sell you more than you need and makes a conscientious effort to keep labor costs to a minimum. I am thrilled with my newest purchase: an Alpine car stereo with Bluetooth capability. It makes my commute in my vehicle much more pleasant. I love working with Derek and his team at Certified Sounds. I highly recommend them!!!
