Recommend me a reputable stereo shop (AZ)

Hey guys I'm wondering you guys know if any good stereo shops who do great work. I am swapping out my amps and I want someone to install them and tune them properly. Most shops usually freaken turn the gain and bass all the way up but I don't like that. I like nice clean, crisp hitting bass and to be able to hear the music as well. That's how my setup is now but I want more power. Thanks.

I haven't seen much impressive work out here yet, but I don't get out much....if you want, I could try to find out who did the work in you know who's Saleen...there were some fit and finish issues but I'm pretty sure everything works great.

480 Motoring does great work.
Only had a problem with one of the installers, who is gone now.

I worked there awhile back when they did the saleen, but never got to work on it .
But ya they can do just about anything as far as customing, and audio video setups.

Dude, look for an amp that has a remote. My MTX has a remote that you can adjust the volume and gain. It's nice because you can add some heavy bass for some stuff, but back off on others. Its also nice being able to turn it down when the chillins are in the car. I'm not a pro by any stretch, but have done allot of work on stereos in the past if you need any help

Cool. The Kicker amp (ZX450.2) I have now has a remote bass knob that is mounted under the steering colum.

I just bought the Kicker ZX750.1 so the knob stays mounted and I just plug it in the amp. It gets here today. I am super anxious to get it installed.

Here's the plan:

Right now I have the ZX450.2 running the sub and a Planet Audio VX1502 running my mids and highs. I want to install my new amp (ZX750.1 Mono) to run the sub and move the ZX450.2 to my mids and highs and remove the planet audio amp completely.

What I don't know how to do is go from a 4ohm setup to a 2ohm setup for the sub. I don't know if you have to rewire the sub some how or what.

That's the one I have currently installed running the sub at 4ohm. The one I bought is the ZX750.1 Mono amp which will be a 2 ohm setup.
