“I recently purchased a 2012 4Runner that had the worst factory sound system I have ever heard …. this may not mean much to most people , but I’m 64 and have owned a ton of vehicles. Derek at Certified Sounds was highly recommended to me , so I decided to stop buy and see what he had to offer. It was the best recommendation I have had in many years. Derek and his staff treated me like an old friend and provided the best quality speakers, amps, crossover network and subwoofer I could have imagined. The quality of the installation was clean as could be. Details are very important to this shop. I felt as if they were working on their own cars. I was amazed at the fine tuning that Derek did once the installation was complete …. unbelievable clear undistorted sound. Thank you Derek and the entire staff for providing me quality listening during those long trips to Hana …. For those of you even thinking about a system correction or an up-grade … give Derek and the gang a call … you won’t be disappointed. ……… Much Aloha ….”
