How much does a home theater system cost?
We can design a surround sound package to fit any budget. For instance, we sell a complete home theater package for $7,999 installed. Or, we can completely customize a home entertainment system for you.
Why do you charge a $99 scope out fee for your installations?
We charge our customers a non-refundable $99 scope out fee because we put a lot of time and work into gathering customer specifications, traveling to and inspecting the project site, and designing a proposal for a customized audio/video system. This $99 scope out fee buys you the hours of time the design process takes at a bargain compared to our normal hourly rate.
How much does installation cost?
For installation, we charge $300 for a half-day or $600 for a full-day of labor per installer. This covers the cost of the installers’ time preparing, traveling, and working on the job.
How much does a service call cost?
For a service call, we charge $99 for the first hour and then $75 per hour in 15 minute increments. We bill for the first hour ($99) up front and then bill for any additional time and parts used due immediately when the work is complete.
So for example, a 1 hour and 45 minute service call would cost $99 for the first hour and $56.25 for the next 45 minutes for a total of $155.25.
Do you install car stereos or car audio equipment?
No, we install home and commercial audio/video products like home theaters, surround sound systems, outdoor sound systems, multi-room/whole-house sound systems, control systems, home internet networks, conference room systems, as well as Lutron lighting and shades.
