Why You Should Pick a Car Audio Authorized Dealer

When looking for a car audio dealer to upgrade your vehicle stereo or audio system, you will have many options. Amongst those options you will find authorized car audio dealers and non-authorized dealers. This is especially true in the competitive car audio dealer market in Orange County. There are several reasons to choose a Car Audio Authorized Dealer.
Before understanding the reason why you should use an authorized dealer, you need to know what an authorized dealer is. An authorized dealer is a car audio location that has permission from the brand to sell their products in their shop. This means they have legal rights to sell, install, and service the brands products. This is important because it safeguards you.

By having an authorized dealer install your parts, you are getting three very important elements: warranty, service, and support.


A warranty allows you to go back to the car authorized dealer during a set amount of time after installation to have certain defects or issues fixed at little to no extra cost to you. For example, if you choose to buy a head unit and the screen malfunctions, if it is covered under the warranty, you are allowed to return to the authorized dealer and have it fixed or replaced without having to buy a new one. You may be familiar with these concepts for large purchases such as cars and phones. Thus, a warranty takes the worry of paying out of pocket off your shoulders.

At Crazy Stereo™, installations are covered by our in-house worry-free warranty that covers shipping, handling and labor for both removal and reinstallation, plus the warranty period is automatically extended from 30 days to 90 days at no additional charge! You’ll also receive an additional extended manufacturer warranty on Rockford Fosgate, Phoenix Gold and other select manufacturer’s products.

After your in-house warranty expires, the manufacturer’s warranty is still in effect up to 3 years from the date of purchase depending on the brand and product you purchased.


In purchasing from Crazy Stereo, an authorized dealer, you are going to have access to service for your parts. For example, if you purchase a new phone or update your phone’s software and find it does not pair properly with your stereo, the firmware of your stereo unit may need updating as well. If the unit is under warranty, this service is provided for free from Crazy Stereo. If the warranty is over, you’ll pay a discounted fee for this service because you purchased the unit from Crazy Stereo.

Another example, if you purchase a speaker system and it just does not sound right, you may be able to take it back to the Crazy Stereo and have the problem serviced at little to no cost to you. This means that you can maintain your car audio stereo, which will keep it in top shape for as long as possible. This will save you time, money, and anxiety over the course of the service agreement, which is only possible with an authorized dealer.


Electronics can be finicky and it is difficult for some to learn how to work all of the features with certain products. In the technological age, having access to technical support is important in order for you to make sure you get the most out of your product. The same is true for car audio equipment. By working with an authorized dealer, you get the support built into the purchase for a set duration of time. That means you contact the appropriate representative through the stated method in the agreement to get the help you need when you find yourself stuck on a feature or are getting an error you cannot work through. This gives you comfort of knowing help is only a short click or phone call away.

At Crazy Stereo, we are authorized dealers for many of the top brands including Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer, Kicker, Rockford Fosgate, Viper, Infiniti and more. These are just two of the top brands that we are authorized audio dealers for.
