Specialty retailers typically offer the very best value available when you are making a purchase of a technical nature. But what is a specialty retailer? In most cases, a specialty retailer is a small, locally owned company that focuses on 1 or 2 things and does them extremely well. Extreme Audio is proud to be a specialty retailer.
Examples of Specialty Retailers
Specialty retailers exist in every industry. You probably have a local hardware store that has all the answers when you need to replace a leaky faucet. Perhaps you have a local bicycle shop where the owner and all of the employees live and die on the roads or trails. These folks know their stuff. You know that when you ask them a question the answer you will get is the best one. You know that when you get home, you will have ALL of the parts you need to fix your sink. And you know that the mountain bike will be adjusted perfectly for your legs and body.
12 Volt Specialty Retailers
The same is true in our industry. When you walk into a shop like Extreme Audio, you know that you are going to get the right answers. The specialists that work here use this stuff in their own vehicles. Just ask them and they will show you. Chances are pretty good that you won’t need to ask. They will just take you out to their car and sit you down in it! Most have worked in this industry for years but if they are new, they were hired because of their passion for great sound and functionality in a vehicle.
Specialty Retailers Invest In Their Businesses
Specialty retailers invest in their facilities and their employees. You know you have found a specialty retailer in the 12 volt industry when they proudly show you their certifications and awards. They will show you around their building. Not just their showroom but their “kitchen” : where the installations happen. Look around. Specialty retailers do things right and you will know it by their thoroughness and passion.
Access to the Owner
When you deal with a specialty retailer for your audio enhancement, you just might be dealing with the owner. But if not, you can rest assured that you will have access to the owner if the need arises. They are an active part of their business and deal with clients on a daily basis. They don’t hide behind layers of corporate bureaucracy. The likelihood of having a problem when dealing with a specialty retailer is low, but if it happens, you know you will have access to the top dog.
The Very Best Value
When you have found a specialty retailer for your enhancement, I promise that you will receive the very best value. To be clear, this does not mean the cheapest price. It means the best value. You will be getting a solution that works, sounds great, and will continue to do so for years to come. It will be installed to exacting standards by true professionals who have all of the necessary tools and the training to use them. And if something ever does go wrong, you know that you are dealing with a reputable and honorable company run by reputable and honorable staff and owners.
All of that might cost more. But at the end of the day, isn’t getting what you really want and having the peace of mind that it was done right worth a few extra bucks?

I’ll leave you with this quote from John Ruskin:
“When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.”
