AWARD WINNING CUSTOM CAR STEREO SHOP

SOUNDS GOOD STEREO

 Providing Excellence to our customers since 1983

Where our story began

1983
Miami, Florida

It’s been a long road for Sounds Good Stereo, but one that is filled with satisfaction. In the early days of 8-track players and cassette decks, Sounds Good Stereo was on the cutting edge of installation techniques and product innovations for our Miami clients. Born on Biscayne Blvd in 1983 by Marc L., the dream was always to deliver the best audio systems for vehicles possible. In the early 1990s car audio was the craze in Miami, FL. The introduction of “Miami Bass” also regarded as “booty bass” took over the airwaves and customers wanted to enjoy this new sub-genre of music in their vehicle. Being in downtown Miami, just minutes from the world famous South Beach, Sounds Good Stereo was well known for their attention to detail and custom installation techniques that set the bar in our industry. Since then, the music has evolved along with the installation techniques, but our dedication to our clients has always stayed consistent for over 35+ years. Check out our old commercial along with retro photos below (Sorry, no 4k images in the 1990s) and take a step into the history of Sounds Good Stereo.

Where we are today

2019
Nashville, TN | Miami, FL

In 2012, Marc L. passed his creation off to the next generation of car audio experts, and one who happens to be a long time employee of Sounds Good Stereo. The goal, to become the best in the nation. To achieve this, everything needed to be looked at from another angle. From the products and tuning capabilities to customer service, we revamped everything to the best of our ability. This same year, the team traveled the U.S. and even to France to visit the Focal speaker factory. Since 2012, we have attended hundreds of training seminars nationwide, moved to the Top 12 Installers in the nation, and provide training seminars and technical support to other retailers, even locally here in the Nashville, TN area. A lot has changed since 1983, but our commitment to our clients will always continue. We would like to say thanks to our amazing clients and we look forward to the next 36+ years with our new location just outside of Nashville, TN.

OUR FACILITY IN THE WORKS
We proudly chose

nashville

as our new home

The most common question we receive….Why Nashville, TN? Well, the simple answer is we love music, community, and family values. The influence was from one of our team members Don L. He was born and raised here in Middle Tennessee with family spread out in the Nashville area including Mount Juliet. Growing up being exposed to musicians and working several years at Hifi Buys on Nolensville Rd, he knew the potential of the area compared to others. Even though Don lived in Florida for 10 years away from Nashville, he knew one day that he would bring a dream team of passionate car audio experts back home. In October 2018, Sounds Good Nashville opened its door to the public with a team of award-winning, industry certified, world-class individuals, to provide a scientific approach to audio rather than guesswork that currently exists in the area. We are not the shop for everyone and you will find that we are not the cheapest, but if you could define the right way to upgrade your vehicles audio system, our team would be that definition. Would you like to learn more? If so, stop by the shop for a tour of our facility and take a listen to one of our demonstration vehicles.

Our Amazing Team

Passionate individuals who put customers first and create the best culture in our industry.
Don Lester

Marketing

Are you enjoying the website? If so, this is where Don Lester steps in. His role is to take our vision, dream, portfolio, and attention to detail and showcase it online so our potential clients can evaluate who they want working on their vehicle.

Scott Miller

Customer Relations

When you need someone that understands vehicles, audio equipment, advanced installation methods and holds several Top Installer awards… You have our amazing team member Scott Miller. Raised in Central Florida, he attended Installer Institute which is a car audio school early in his career and holds the Advanced Mobile Electronics Certified Professional (MECP) award. When Scott is not guiding customers on their audio euphoria path and working on vehicles, he is studying advanced speaker theory engineering books to push himself to the next level. We welcome Scott and his family to the Sounds Good Stereo Nashville team and know that our local clients will appreciate his simple approach to making their dreams a reality.

Sage Weir

Vehicle Integration

We couldn’t use the word “World Famous” without our team member Sage. Raised in Hawaii and exposed to electronics at a young age, Sage has become one of the most well-known figures in the car audio and automotive customization scene. Working with hundreds of famous celebrities, appearing on the TV show Unique Rides, and becoming the leading expert in vehicle integration in the United States, Sage is vital to our team’s success. Recently being awarded the Top 12 Award for two years in a row means a lot to Sage, but as he will tell you, the awards are nice, but having customers proud of the work you performed and them trusting you is the real reward.
