Welcome to Premier Car Audio
Ann Arbor’s newest Mobile Electronics sales and installation center
We’d love to earn your business, so here’s a bit about us:
Matt has been installing car stereos since he was 9, – yep- 4th grade- his first in a 1983 Mustang in the backyard of his parents’ home in northern Michigan. There wasn’t a lot to do in the small town, so Matt kept busy working on vintage cars that his father acquired. A hard worker from an early age, Matt saved up his earnings and bought his first car at age 15.
In the 90’s, at the height of the aftermarket industry, Matt moved to Lansing to work at Car Stereo One. He learned the fundamentals of 12 volt electronics, as well as how to build boxes and work with fiberglass. After an untimely closing in 2005, Matt got a job at the main competition at the time: House of Car Stereo on Pennsylvania Ave.
House was an excellent job while open- Matt worked with talented installers and picked up more experience with custom installations. Unfortunately, the business went the way of most other Car Stereo shops of the time.
While in Lansing, Matt went back to college in search of a degree in Audio Engineering. He finished with a 3.8 GPA (especially impressive if you knew him in high school ) and won a scholarship through the Michigan Broadcasting Association. He also earned his MECP Certification, and State of Michigan Automotive Electrical Repair license.
Matt worked for years in automotive repair before ultimately making his way back to his true passion. Even though it was 60 miles away, Mr. Tunes offered the perfect space to hone his craft. Matt stayed for 5 years, then worked as the Lead Installer at Best Buy before deciding that Ann Arbor was in need of a different type of Car Audio shop.
You deserve a shop that will explain your choices and give a fair quote.
You deserve a prompt response and appointment time.
You deserve top quality installation and customer service.
Matt and I have been together for nearly 17 years. We have 4 kids, 3 cats (yes- we’re those people), and 2 apparently indestructible goldfish. We’re living in Eaton Rapids (a small town south of Lansing) hoping to find a home in the Ann Arbor area eventually.
We’ve been working towards the opening of Premier Car Audio since writing our first business plan in 2014. It took a while, but we’re here! Our new building is in a prime location- right off the highway, with plenty of parking. We’re planning some awesome changes for the space, so keep checking in on our progress!
Come check us out, and we promise you’ll want to come back!
