about us

One of the most frustrating experiences about car audio is the initial contact and project planning
stages. A plethora of terms and catch phrases are thrown about by the salesman; while seemingly every
product in sight is being offered to you. These tactics create an atmosphere of confusion and frequently
results in choices, both in terms of equipment and installation; that you’ll come to regret later.

We make this phase much more efficient and pleasant.

Simply email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the following information:

1. Exact year, make, model and trim of your vehicle; please list any relevant details such as factory premium sound and/or navigation.

2. Any aftermarket car audio equipment you have previously installed and/or have gathered for the purpose of installation.

3. In as many words as you like, describe how you would like your system to sound.  Feel free to list some of your favorite artists.

4. In as many words as you like, describe how you would like your system to look. Feel free to include pictures and info from the web and/or of our previous projects.

5. Your desired budget range for the project. (we prefer to ask this question because we hold ourselves to a high standard when it comes to installation and gear selection; and as a result we usually start our quote at a certain price point but can vary wildly beyond that point; thus having a rough idea of your expectations can help us point you in the right direction. If you are completely unsure, don't worry; simply state that and we can help guide you as well.)

6. The time frame in which you are looking to have the work done.  (We usually run a waiting list that can range from a couple of weeks to a few months depending on the size and scope of the project; but please feel free to list some details if you have specific dates in mind)

7. Your location and full name.


Please remember that we are a small operation dedicated to working on cars; to that end, by far the BEST way to contact us is via email and we will try our very best to respond within 24 hours.

You can try calling or leaving a message during business hours, but it is difficult to hear the phone ringing over the banshee like wail of routers and table saws, and when we are devoting 100 percent of our attention to a particular project, we may sound quite spaced out on the line anyway...even after a days work has been completed. :)

We STRONGLY recommend making an appointment before stopping by and we will try our best to
work with your schedule. The simple fact is that if we know what you are seeking beforehand and
can anticipate your arrival, we can adjust our schedules accordingly to provide the most personal and
efficient one-on-one services possible.

    Perhaps the most amazing car audio shop in the country.

    Simplicity in Sound started as a one man operation, by a man who has absolute passion and commitment to the 12v industry. Throughout all the detailed install logs posted by Bing on http://www.diymobileaudi… and other various car forums, one can easily appreciate the consistency of high level commitment to details in all of Bing's installs regardless of budget.  To those who are unfamiliar with http://www.diymobileaudi…, it is the authority of car audio forum internationally, and everybody praises Bing's fabrication skills and integrity over and over.

    With the recent expansion of Simplicity in Sound into a brick and mortar shop, the venue is truly state of the art, with the highest caliber of tools to do the job right.  But the venue is only half the story.  Bing is very fortunate to recruit an equally impressive install god from the east cost, Mr. Joey Knapp as a business partner/co-owner.  Joey brings new ideas and techniques to Simplicity in Sound, and the two of them truly formed a world class shop.  I am one of the first fortunate customers that benefited from this new partnership.  My build is a medium budget build, but received world class wiring and sound deadening that is equal to many of their higher budget builds.  Joey's metal fabrication skills also made its way into my car, giving me a beautiful hand welded amp rack that is strong and beautiful, not taking up any trunk space at all.  To diffentiate my build from others, Joey spent extra hours and effort into customizing a truly unique subwoofer enclosure for me, and they really went the distance.  Needless to say, I am extremely satisifed as a customer.  Not only does my car sound great, but it is an artwork as well.

    These two great characters have a high level of integrity and knowledge in the business, and both are extremely approachable.  Once you are a simplicity in sound's customers, you are also their friend :)  I would never recommend any other place for car audio.  Simplicity in Sound = Number One!
