Damaged my door speaker cover while installing dash cam
I booked my Mercedes clc 200 kompressor to have dash cam , reversing camera and in dash media player , and when I went to pick up my car I straight away noticed to broken speaker cover on driver side door . Long story short the owner of the business replaced my broken part and I was a happy customer
6 out of 10. Fantastic sound.
I made my purchase over the phone, but everything, including the price of all the individual components was e-mailed to me. The only problems i have had with it are the Subwoofer packing it in after less than 3 months and the crossovers being a pain to install inside a 2013 Ford Fiesta front doors. The Sub has been gone now for nearly 6 weeks for repair under warranty, but i am informed it will be back very soon. Apart from the long wait, Phil could not have been a better installer and person to get on with. He lives a fair distance away from...me and when i told him that my left front door wouldn't open from the inside, he knew exactly what he had done and offered to come back and fix it, but a friend if mine helped me with removing the door panel and we reconnected the mechanism. I have read some negative reports on here about Strathfield, but most of them are in the southern states and i am in Brisbane, but to be fair, apart from the long wait to get my Sub back, i can't complain too much. Phil even fixed the vibrations in my front doors from the Crossovers when he came back to take the Sub away for repairs. Maybe i got a good installer who knows what he is doing. If nothing else goes wrong, 4 stars. I'll post more after i get my Sub back.
I bought a digital camera from Miranda fair Strathfield and i decide to change it becoz its not good enough for my PC so i went back and ask to exchange it for something else they give exchange it and not only that they give me the difference aswell, second time i went again not happy wd the product and they gave me the full refund. The labanese owner is so nice.

Questions & Answers
My car is Mercedes Benz B200, 2008.
The audio system doesn't work and need to repair or replace any types of audio system. Please advise me anything good ideas before visiting your shop.

I had a great experence with these guys. I had the same issue and needed a new system. They listened to me about what i was looking for and sold me just what i needed at a good price. The installation was fast and perfect.
I am about to exchange an existing Gps system in my Captive 7 Series 2 for an Alpine ILX-650E System.
Question 1 Do you sell this system?
2 Do you install?
3 If so can you give an approximate costing to both questions?
Thanks Ron Canfield
These guys are great fair and honest they will give you the best advice price and service and their work is perfect. I can’t say enough about how happy I was with my service from them
I am about to get an Audio upgrade from Strathfield in Brisbne on Monday. From what i've read on here about them, they don't rate too highly. Can anyone inform me of any problems or good features with the Brisbane business before i spend 1,600 bucks?
Can't speak for Brisbane as I'm not from there.
The guys here (SCR Sydney) are pretty good, but every car has it's issues especially new ones as car manufacturers don't consider after market installations as part of their build process.
My advice is to make sure you take pictures before and after of your car, and ensure that you have something in writing that clearly defines who will cover damages if any are caused. This way you can clearly demonstrate a problem (before and after) and have agreement at the outset on who is responsible.
Don't just get a hand shake and verbal commitment.
Also ensure that if you are having any leads from the batter run, that they use proper heat proof covering or run it behind the firewall covering in the engine bay, otherwise they wires melt and short out.
Look at Dynamat on the doors as well, not just the speaker area. Makes a big difference to acoustics, and keeps road noise out.. Even when no playing tunes.
Thanks Noah. Have had the job done and everything is ok. I hovered over the bloke and It took him 7 hours to do it, but he did use all the correct gauge shielded wiring, especially to the Sub. New speakers went back in where the original one's were, with a slight modification and had to drill a hole to mount each crossover because the panels wouldn't go back on. Had to pull the back seat out to run the Sub wiring through to the hatch, but a good professional job. You're right about after market. The only place he could fit the Speaker Amp was under the left front seat, which makes it awkward to get at it to set the levels but that's really no problem. Strange there should be so many bad reports, unless this bloke knew exactly what he was doing. Thanks for you're answer mate.
