Sound Wave Customs was highly recommend to me by a friend. My initial contact with the owner, Ethan, was enjoyable and enlightening.

Ethan and the entire crew at Sound Wave Customs were as professional as one could hope to find.

Soundwave customs is the best! They got me in the same day and my sub sounds amazing!! And they made sure I was absolutely comfortable while waiting. I would recommend them every time!!!

Sound Wave Customs is amazing. I’ve recently had lights installed and tint on my 2014 Tundra. Going back to get my speaker system installed by them. No other place beats these guys.

So i stopped today, was a little short on time the guys worked fast and did a great install for me. I will be back again thanks for the quick professional service.
John Sanders Jr.
I had SWC put an alarm with remote start and perimeter sensor in my custom GMC Safari van. They did an excellent job in explaining my options and completing the install in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them.
Narciscus Key
This is a superior shop, I recommend them to anyone that wants to have professional work done with professional results and a great overall experiance. My Supra now blows the windows out with amazingly tuned and properly powered sound.
Christian Feuerstein
Great customer service. Treated my Jeep with expert care. Great place to hang out while install is going on. Would definitely recommend to anyone. I will be back for the next phase of my system upgrades.
