Default ICE: Sound Effects, Chennai

I, and my friends, go to this shop for all our ICE related needs.

Owner: Kannan
Name of the Shop: Sound Effects
Mobile Nr:99626 16014
Web: www.soundeffectcarstereo.com

+ves:
- A thorough expert in his Job. Knows what he does. Have never seen him doing rework.
- Very Courteous and Polite.
- Charges are very nominal.
- Transparent.
- Does mobile servicing too.

-ves:
- His shop is at Royapuram. So you might have to do a bit of driving to reach his shop.
- Without appointment you will have to wait.

Get all your units and stereos from some store and get the installation alone done by him. His shop stocks only minimal products and prices may not be competitive.

Cliffhanger, can you post some pics of the installation done in your car? Does he fabricate subwoofer boxes?

Bro, he does sub-woofer fabrication too. If you have any specific queries, you can call him up and check. Probably at the next meet, I'll show my set up to you.

Yes. He had worked under several employers and finally set up his own shop which was opened a few months back.

If he is the guy on whites road, I would not suggest him for any kind of ICE installation.

I took my car to him to remove my ICE, he completely screwed the electrical in the car. The way he handles the components leaves a lot to be desired.

Phoenix (t-bhp member) also had a bad experience with Kannan when installing his ICE.

It says he's in Royapuram, not Whites Road.

BTW me and Pr_007 went to a place called Power Zone in Royapetah on Saturday. Guy seemed extremely hands on has got a mind blowing install on his Estilo. Pics of his other installs which are demo cars used by ICE companies in exhibitions looked great as well. I also went to Chandru Auto (GP Road) on Sunday to get an ipod compatible HU for a friend's car and the owner had an extremly high opinion of Power Zone. I also took a look at his i10 which was done there.

Does anyone on TBHP have any experience with Power Zone?

Mr. Bean,

His photos are posted up in his website under 'About Us' section. You could confirm whether he is the guy who screwed up your electricals. I still keep him in high regards, but if someone has had some bad experiences, then it is better to look at other alternatives.

But again, Mr. Bean or Phoenix please confirm whether it is him. He shouldn't be mistaken for somebody else.

The estilo with multiple LCD screens and really big subs in the back ?
if yes, then i got my audio installed there, even bottle goes there for ICE and stuff. I have no complains about the place, he does good work, but again i have very basic ICE so don't know much.

I think it is better to create a new thread for PowerZone, Royapettai as this one is for the shop 'Sound Effects'.
Moderators, can you please help with that?
