At River Oaks Car Stereo we are committed to the very best installation.
And we do a much broader range of electronics work on cars than most other shops do.
We actually fix what the other places mess up. (we really do) We try to have good relations with other shops and it is not unusual for them to call us for installation advice or to help them with a problem. We sometimes even send someone out to solve problems. (we have a full time tech support person!)
We do just about everything in automotive electronics!
Car Stereos, Car Security, Back up Sensors, Back Up Cameras, Collision avoidance, blue tooth, all kinds of audio and video integration for your IPHONE or IPOD, Vehicle Tracking (both installing tracking devices and detecting and removing tracking devices if someone is tracking you!)We do some police work, Sirens, emergency vehicle lighting, two way radios! Also we install ham radios (amateur radio) in cars, most of our employees are FCC licensed. We also design and build speaker boxes, custom cabinetry for vans, center consoles for equipment and such. Custom lighting, custom gun racks, video displays, video recorders (record your driving), hidden cameras. We can do this all showy and fancy, or we can do it hidden and discrete.
Your dream is our job!
River Oaks Car Stereo was founded in 1990 by Owner Eddie Runner (NU5K) Eddie was exposed to electronics at an early age thanks to the encouragement by his father and grandfather. He eventually developed a passion for Hi Fidelity sound and short wave radio and pretty much all things electronic. Getting his first car and installing an 8-track stereo and CB radio paved the way for a long time love for car audio.
Eddie started installing and repairing CB radios in 1974 which lead to multiple prestigious positions such as working as store manager for Texas Radio, working as the National Installation Manager of a large national chain Custom Hi-Fi) and 8 years installing high end car audio with Houston Institution (Home Entertainment Inc.) Eventually with the support of the industry and past customers Eddie opened up River Oaks Car Stereo in 1990
We are one of the few shops in the Country that has professional audio test equipment. We can make your car sound amazing and live up to the highest standard in high end audio. We have Oscilloscopes and Audio Oscillators and even an expensive LMS computer to take audio measurements right in your car. Great sound is not about how loud you can make it but by the quality of said sound.
