Danny and all the other guys are first rate...knowledgeable and professional. Came through for me when I arrived from out of town for a warranty claim.These guys will fight for you and put your interests first.The best shop in north florida!
Top notch stereo shop. Chris you helped me out on my new 4runner. Im sure i drove you nuts but you always made time for me. For that i say thank you. Everyone there is ready to help. I could not be happier with my upgrade. The installers really know what they are doing. I love sound and they made it happen. Great team. Great job. Thanks.
I have a new F-350 SuperDuty and I'm pretty particular about who works on it. I was not able to find any high-end car audio shop in the Jacksonville area that looked like one that I would trust with my truck and who had a competent installation crew with many years of experience, not some fresh outs. My search took me about a hundred miles away to Gainesville where I found Danny, Omar, Dwayne and Brian. These guys are the real deal, and have been doing car audio for decades. I explained to them what I wanted my truck to sound like and my expectations for the installation and mounting of the hardware, and it was right in line with their best practices. I got an audio system with JL & Hertz components, and retained the factory head unit with all the Bluetooth and backup camera controls. Brian designed a custom subwoofer box that mounts under the rear seat but still gives me room for some partial storage, and does not take up the entire area, which made me very happy. The fabrication job was outstanding to say the least. It looks exactly like something that would have come from the factory. The carpet and vinyl used matches the interior perfectly. I couldn't be happier. The system sounds amazing and is just getting broken in. This will be my go-to car audio shop for all my future needs. If you're anywhere around the central or North Florida area you need to meet with these guys if you're serious about a mobile audio system for your vehicle.
The radio in my 2013 GMC Acadia wasn’t up to the job of staying connected to my phone. I went to Sound Depot because I had been there before to get tint placed on my cars and they were awesome.
I went to look at in dash DVD players during my lunch time. When I came in they were discussing Pizza economics. Danny was eating his lunch. He was more than happy to stop eating his 20$ slice of pizza to help me go over some options. Thanks man! We discussed several units. After discussing the differences he let me play with the demo units so I could get a feel for the units and how they worked. I was able to connect my phone and see exactly how each unit stacked up. (You can’t do that anywhere in town! Trust me I tried)
I thanked him for his time and told him I would need to discuss with the wife.
I talked with my wife and she agreed as long as we did an overhead dvd player (We had just taken a long road trip and the kids drove us NUTS!). It was Saturday, I immediately called the store and talked with Danny again. At which time he gave me prices and model numbers so I could review them online. I think I spent all day Sunday comparing radios and dvd players.
That Monday, I went back to the store to touch and play with the the overhead unit I had chosen over the weekend. Danny was off but Chris was there and more than willing to help out. We looked at the different models. After debating in my head, I chose which the model I wanted and set up an appointment to get everything installed.
Let me tell you, these guys are amazing! The install looks flawless! I love the radio and the sound it puts out. It is so much better than stock! MY KIDS LOVE THE DVD PLAYER AND ARE QUIET DURING ROAD TRIPS NOW! I couldn’t ask for more.
Thank you to Danny, Chris, Omar and the entire team at Sound Depot! You guys are awesome!
Found Sound Depot on the web and based upon the reviews I called to see what they could do about my sound system on my 1976 Olds Cutlass Salon. As soon as I met Danny I knew I had found the right place. I was only receiving 2-3 channels on my am/fm and the 8 track was not working at all. I dropped the car off and within two hours Danny called and told me what he thought was the issue. All of the wires were spliced together including the wiring to the power antenna. He didn't know if the radio needed work other than getting the 8 track going, but suggested that I get the car rewired for about $400.00 and then work backwards to the radio issue. His techs got the wiring done in a day and in the meantime Danny decided to see if he could get the 8 track working and found that a couple of belts and some tweaking within the unit was all that was needed. He also replaced the two "original" front speakers for a very reasonable price and it made a huge difference in the sound quality. He called me to come pick up the car and when I got there found that the radio worked great and then he put the 8 track tape in....wow!, it sounded just like it did the day it came off the assembly line. What was even better was that he didn't charge me for the 3 hours labor he put into it nor the belts for the 8 track. When I drove the car home, it was such a joy to be able to tune into about 40 different stations and listen to whatever I wanted. If you want quality work from folks who take pride in what they do, then Sound Depot is the place to take your vehicle. I will definitely take my other vehicles there when audio work needs to be done. Thanks Danny
After wasting weeks trying to find a decent sound system installer in Jacksonville (like Bigfoot, they don't really exist), I started looking at out of town shops and immediately found one with an unusually stellar reputation, SDP in Gainesville. Their reputation is well deserved. Omar, Danny and Chris patiently walked me through the whole process and I was able to get my DREAM SYSTEM (Hertz, JL & Kenwood equipment, unbelievable setup) installed quickly and painlessly. These guys are the real deal with only the best gear, superior technical expertise and above all, the highest level of customer service I’ve ever seen (especially Danny, the guy should wear a friggin cape with the letter “D” on it – he’s that good). Don't hesitate; just go see SDP for yourself. Before you know it you’ll be writing one of these great reviews too!
Had a problem with my 2008 Lexus Navigation screen. I was expecting a large expensive bill. Chris, a Service Tech said give him a minute and he would take a look at the problem. With a meter he checked the car out and found a fix. He fixed the problem in 15 min. or less. I was very Impressive with his knowledge and skill. Chris saved me a lot of money! I'm not sure that other dealerships would have done the same! Thank You Sound Depot and Performance! When I need service or equipment that is where I will go. Very impressed with knowledge that the employees have and how efficient they are. Awesome Customer Service, Thanks.
I drive a lifted Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited and wanted to install a quality sound system to enjoy even when the doors and top were off during off-road activities. This meant that my system needed to be able to stand up to water, heat, and other environmental factors.
Jonathan and the Sound Depot team went above and beyond to help me learn about the different products, setups, and alternatives that were available to me that fit my needs and my budget. They used high quality OFC wiring and installed my new marine (water-proof) amplifier that I didn't even buy from their store, as well as a new JL Audio sub-woofer that I did buy from them.
The sound system is absolutely fantastic and has been working well for months now!
The entire process was very stress free. At no point did I feel like they were trying to sell me something or push a product on me - they were very transparent and even installed parts that I didn't buy from them. They quickly addressed my myriad of questions so that I fully understood the prices for all of my options prior to choosing one for the Jeep.
To top it all off, they offer a great warranty and will service the system should something go wrong, which tells me they are confident in their service.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with the sound system itself, the help I received from Jonathan throughout the process, and the Sound Depot team for doing outstanding work for a great price.
I recently purchased a 2016 Honda Accord and the sound quality from the factory stereo is VERY poor. After doing some research on this problem, Omar and the Sound Depot team came highly recommended. I'm here to tell you that they didn't disappoint! From the moment I walked in the door and met Jon to when I picked up the finished product, my vehicle and I were treated with white glove service. Jon spent a lot of time with me going over all the options available and letting me listen to several of the employees vehicles to see how things sounded in a real car setting. After deciding on all of the system upgrades, Jon said it was going to sound really good. He lied, it sounds "PHENOMENAL!!!". Dewayne did an amazing job tuning the system and thanks to the rest of the staff that had a hand in making my car sound truly unbelievable! The only reason I gave them 5 stars is because 6 wasn't an option. Thanks again guys...
I bought a Pioneer radio on Amazon and had some issues getting the Blue Tooth to work correctly with my phone so I stopped by SDP expecting to drop my truck off for the day, however the team at SDP took the time to walk out to my truck and check out the problem, which they quickly identified and walked me through the fix, which they didn't charge me for. These guys do great work and I've always had a great experience when using them for any my custom needs.
