Where around Austin do you guys go to get your car audio stuff? Either installed or just purchased?

I've purchased stuff from Alpha Audio, and Best Buy... that's it and I never plan on buying from Alpha Audio again, since they cracked my dashboard, and screwed up my plates when they installed them for "free"... I took off my dash one day and found my speakers all screwed up, and I went back and they let me exchange them for new(took about 2 months to get them in for some reason).... and I did it myself in about 20 minutes, with a screwdriver and an exact-o knife...

To top it off, when I showed them that they cracked my dashboard (in half)... the installer tried to say that it was my fault for having such an old car... and it just "happened"... I told him that the way this dash comes off, there is no way it would just crack like that.... so they were gonna give me a "SWEET DEAL" on some window tinting... Needless to say, I got pretty much the "SHAFT" not a sweat deal... After the "discount," I still ended up paying $150 for my damn tint!! arg! That's more than the STANDARD price at Mother's Window Tint... with the same exact tint, and same lifetime warranty!

Don't let their nice-guy attitude fool you... they intend on taking all your money and doing some half-ass install...

I'll have to check the specs on the other aux channels on the 790. I know that I can hook it up to where pressing the aux channel will vent the windows about 2" with every press of the button. Or holding it down for about 2 seconds will cause the windows to roll down completely. I can connect the "up" trigger wire on the DEI 530T module to another aux channel from the 790 so that it does not roll up everytime you arm the system. Also, the DEI 530T will add "One-Touch" operation to your windows, instead of having to hold the switch.
