Good car audio in Sydney

Hey guys

A few months ago I posted about an issue with my car stereo (the passenger side speakers only work for about a minute after the car is started). I still haven't been able to fix the problem - neither has my local BMW dealer.

So, I think I'm going to have the speakers and amp replaced and see if that works (not to mention that the sound, even with the passenger side speakers working, is lousy).

Does anyone know a good car audio place in Sydney?

Thanks guys. I'm pretty nervous because last time I had an after-market stereo fitted the idiots ruined the clips holding the door trim on. Insanely frustrating.

And frostbytez, I've got the factory nav unit (not sure what the proper name is). I've taken it apart though and checked all the wires etc - all seemed fine. Shame I'm not in Perth

FHRX seems to be held in very high regard, they're referred on MANY Australian forums.

A local installer did this on my old E36 318is coupe, I was really disappointed, I sold the car not long after that, didn't want to deal with the uncertainty of things going wrong later. Haven't touched car audio since, but I will look to install another Focal setup depending on whether or not I buy a new car once I get my blacks in Jan next year.

FHRX is great, but a long waiting list

form audio down in wollongong. trained by FHRX staff. now out on his own. does great work as well

advice - get it done properly once. dont go cheap over quality.

what equipment is going in?
