Installing Car Sound Systems Requires Skill and Experience

Those of us who may be a little older will certainly recall the days when buying car sound systems from the local supermarket and installing them oneself was very much the norm. Times, however, have since changed and so too has the average vehicle radio. Both the old 8-track and the more compact tape player have been replaced by the CD player and today’s rear-seat passengers often spend their journeys viewing movies rather than the scenery.

 

Perhaps even more significantly, none of these items has evolved quite as radically as the vehicles themselves and the days of the DIY fitting is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Today the task has become the undisputed realm of experts such as those to be found at EFC, a specialised Electronic Fitment Centre located in Hatfield, a suburb of Pretoria.

 

Each member of the centre’s 41-strong technical team has undergone the most rigorous training needed to become fully familiar with the wide range of products and the even wider range of vehicles into which these products must be fitted. The company is a stockist of most leading audio brands including Sony, Pioneer, Panasonic, Phillips and Kenwood and enjoys the gold status VESA approval that identifies them as thoroughly competent to undertake installing any of these prestigious car sound systems and numerous others besides.

 

Not limited to one-off personal installations, EFC has gained considerable experience in serving the needs of large vehicle fleets. Since opening its doors, the company has undertaken specialised electronic services in support of some of the country’s largest and best known fleets including Avis, Early Bird Farm, AVBOB, Executour and Telkom’s Debis Fleet.

 

Car Sound and other Installations

 

Over and above its audio range, EFC also supplies numerous other vehicle-related electronics such as cruise control, electronic windows, air conditioners, alarms, satellite tracking devices and GPS navigation systems. Together with Bluetooth kits, iPod converters and even smash and grab protection, the company’s exceptionally broad product portfolio has also served to make it a preferred one-stop shop for a number of the nation’s short term insurers.

 

For those in the immediate area it is normally only necessary to drive in and wait for the next free technician but the company also fields 8 mobile teams. Serving those customers that live or work in the more distant parts of Gauteng such as Witbank, Rustenburg, Bella Bella, Krugersdorp and the East and West Rands, the mobile teams are skilled at installing car sound systems and various other electronic devices that are designed to be fitted into domestic or commercial vehicles. For convenience these fittings may be undertaken either at a client’s home or business premises.
