We spend more time in our cars than ever before. That’s unfortunate, but it’s true. Hours and hours listening – perhaps to the radio or a CD, but nowadays it’s probably to the iPod or to streaming media through your smartphone.
At Musicar Northwest, we believe that your car’s sound system ought to sound inspiring – and we believe you can tell the difference, without being any kind of expert. You know when music sounds good – even if you’re not quite sure how to get there on your own.
We don’t think that you have to have a thundering monster from a reality TV show – your speakers don’t have to fill your trunk or require rebuilding your dashboard – but your car’s sound should do justice to your favorite band, stir your emotions, elicit joy, inspire new dreams, and bring back memories. In short, it should reveal the power of your music (and not shortcomings in your budget).
Our Musicar Certified systems usually use the original factory radio, and are invisible, affordable, and musical. We give you a thirty-day tryout on every single Musicar Northwest systems installation. If you decide it’s not for you, we’ll put everything back the way it was – both your car and your wallet. (Musicar Certified systems are available for many BMW owners outside the Portland area!) We also offer basic stereo receivers and full-custom, high-performance audio systems.
We know many shops find certain newer premium cars challenging. Not Musicar Northwest – we are Portland’s experts on new BMWs, Audis, Mercedes, Porsches, Land Rovers, Lotuses, Ferraris, Maseratis, – and other vehicles most shops rarely see.
We also install iPod interfaces, high-quality Bluetooth cellphone handsfree systems, radar and laser detection systems, backup cameras, security, remote start, and factory-look parking assistance systems – but great-sounding music is our passion.
Tom Miller, co-owner of Musicar Northwest, was named as the Installer of the Year Monday, August 18th, by Mobile Electronics magazine. Musicar was named one of the top twelve autosound installation shops in the nation, and was the only car audio shop in Oregon so honored. In addition, Musicar’s Rich Clapp was named to the Top 100 Installer list.
