I started Kartunes in 1987 with the passion for cars. I started selling car audio to friends and family. And word of mouth was getting out fast. I never though at 18 i would be running a car audio shop 25 years later. We currently supply more than 50 car dealerships in the valley. And we are now going into retail. So that means 50% cheaper than the dealer and the same people installing your audio video needs for your new auto
I have been doing business with these guys for over 15 years. Kartunes is very fair on pricing and they have always been honest, available and the service, staff and facility is as professional as it gets. If ever myself or friends I have referred have ever had any issues or problems they have immediately set time aside to make the situation right. In my early 20's Jeff had worked on show truck I had that had won many awards for both custom stereo as well as best in show for looks. now that I am older I simply have an remote start alarm system, some nice speakers and a nice Kenwood deck that I am extremely happy with.These guys are experts and know their stuff from very basic to very elaborate. I would not go anywhere else or refer my friends and family to anyone else.

Very pleased with my trip here. they saved me from being robbed and overcharged by Audio Express. These guys are helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I got more bang from my dollar here than the quote I got from that other place. I showed them the quote and they showed me that there were 2 instances of being charged for things that I didn't need nor would have helped accomplishing keeping my OEM controls etc. Do yourself a favor and stop by here for you car audio needs!!!

To the guys that know how to do installs this shop has a clean crew that knows what they are doing. Unlike other places I've been to that hack up factory wiring and use electrical tape to put wires together because they are to cheap to use real connectors. I do my own installs with wiring and setups. Just this time I'm too lazy to drive to friends place to use their garage. Besides I work graveyard Sun-Thurs I only have weekends to play. If you know what you want, go to these guys and they can get what you need. Other then that I'm a repeat customer to this store, regardless of what others have stated on here. Those people are too picky and demanding things to done for free for them. Remember Quality work comes with a cost, poor work is free but will cost you more to repair the hack job they did in the first place. So its still your choice

Sold me on the idea that they can install interlock on any vehicle and for free. Said it would take less then an hour and a half. 3 and a half hours after arriving I was notified that I will have to pay $50 labor fee and when I asked why the owner just turned and walked away. This company also talks negatively about its competitors yet has the same issues as their competitors. Their competitor is the one that recommended me to them so I give this company a 10 on being shysters.

Our experience with Kartunes was not so positive. After contacting an auto dealer about my DVD system problem, I was referred to Kartunes to solve the issue. When I arrived, Kartunes was prompt and courteous in attempting to diagnose my problem, but the manner of diagnosis was questionable. When the technician was unable to easily remove the casing of my mounted DVD system, he said their philosophy was to pull harder until the hardware comes loose. In addition, the technician also provided a price point and timing estimate for the repair completion. While I understand estimates are not written in stone, my 1-1.5 week estimate turned into 3.5 weeks with no updates during that time. In addition, the initial $100-$150 cost estimate became a $250 charge at the time of pickup. I was told that all DVD repairs are a flat $250 charge, but that was not the case when I was initially consulted about the problem. Finally, one major frustration I noticed in both the diagnosis and reinstallation of my DVD system was the dirt left behind in my car. There was black smudge marks all over the DVD system and interior of my car, and the reinstallation was questionable as I found myself properly snapping the casing into place. I cannot speak for the other services offered at Kartunes, especially since other reviews have been very positive, but DVD systems do not appear to be a forte.

I've had THREE vehicles with high-end stereo systems installed by Kartunes. Not only are they expert installers, but they stand behind their work ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. Seriously...if you don't like the way your sysytem sounds, if you want something added, taken away, tweaked, whatever it is, they follow it up and get it done. As the owner Jeff says, "I want you to be happy with it". Great guys, great business. Can't recommend Kartunes enough. -Ben

Kartunes, was recommended to me by my mother, who was recommended to Kartunes, by Scott Toyota, who recommends them from experience. I'm taking time to share with anyone: Priveledged enough to read this; Fortunate enough to Listen; and Wise enough to choose Kartunes, for all your automobile installations. I was in a last minute panic trying to find an HONEST company I could TRUST to install security devices to protect my vehicle. Many alarm installers/companies are affiliated with Arizonas high auto theft numbers. So you MUST be sure you only trust an Extremely Reputable Company with Reputable References. After being informed that most of our highly respected dealerships around the metropolitan area, personally refer and recommend, Kartunes. I followed my intuitions and hired their services. They have Excellent References. They're Understanding and Helpful,(even in my emergency.) They relate Compassion and Sincerity to their customers needs. They are committed to Integrity and NOT greed or dishonesty. With Sincere Gratitude and Appreciation for their Service, Respect, Integrity and Kindness; I am Gratefully Priveledged to be a customer of Kartunes Auto Sound & Alarms. If you expect respect and value your money and your car, you wouldn't go anywhere else. I'll be referring everyone who is looking for auto installations to TRUST KARTUNES!! BIG THANKS TO JEFF AND ALL HIS INSTALLERS...Jesus too. Aloha and God bless you all greatly, Jennifer
