A client came in with their 2019 Volkswagen Atlas looking for a new remote start. Here at Perfectionist Auto Sound, our techs are extremely experienced with European vehicles, so we walked through many options with our client while guaranteeing a clean and reliable install. We decided on the RFX-2WG15-FM, a two-way remote with a half-mile range. Two-way means that the remote will notify you once the car starts, through blinking LED lights, an audible tone and even your phone if you use the Compustar Drone car-starting app.
A customer came in looking for an autostart for their 2018 Honda HRV. They had never had an autostart before, so we walked them through the differences between one- and two-way remotes. “Two-way” means they will be notified when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through an LED light, audible tone or LCD screen — even through a push notification if using the Compustar Drone. “One-way” means that the remote will still start the car, but it will not give you any notifications, so you would have to see the car to know that it started. We also talked to the customer about what kind of range they needed and if they would be using Drone, the app for your smartphone that allows you to start and stop your vehicle from your phone.
After talking with our customer, we decided to go with the RFX-P2WG15-SS, a two-way remote start that has a two-mile range. We installed the system using our standard procedure of checking all of the vehicle’s functions on an iPad, plugging it into a battery charger after doing a battery test, and soldering and taping all of the wire connections. After we completed the install, we double-checked all of the vehicle’s functions and vacuumed the interior as a final step.
The customer was so happy on picking up their vehicle, knowing that they would be warm every morning and not have to go out into the cold to start the vehicle! If you are looking for an autostart for your vehicle, feel free to give us a call or to contact us here.
One of our techs built these custom fuse and relay banks for our shop’s top-secret truck that we are building for the 2020 SEMA Show. We used black acrylic and ABS to make the top of the relay bank, and used our laser to etch all the icons into the surface. We frequently use this laser in our shop on acrylic and other materials when we need a higher level of precision, such as for speaker mounting plates.
These relay and fuse banks serve to power all of the many external and internal lights on this top-secret truck, and wow, we have a lot going on in this thing.

At Perfectionist, we install autostarts on vehicles brought in by local dealerships nearly every day. Recently, one of the area dealerships brought us a brand-new 2020 Wrangler for a one-way remote start. We installed the Compustar G15, a one-way remote with a range of about 1,500 feet. “One-way” means that the customer would have to be within sight of the vehicle when auto starting it, because they won’t receive confirmation via the remote.
A client from Anchorage came to Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security in search of new speakers and a stereo for their 2000 GMC Sierra. Our team spent time with the client, getting to know them better by listening to what specific features they were looking for and taking a look at the vehicle to see what the best fit would be. We then spent some time looking over some products that we thought would best suit their needs. We worked up a proposal for the client that they liked, so we set an appointment to do the work.
Our team installed a single-DIN Alpine stereo in the dash to replace the original head unit. We also installed 4″x 6″ Pioneer speakers. After finishing the installation, we went over the operation of the products with the client, and they were pleased with how it all worked.
If you would like to add new speakers to your vehicle or upgrade the stereo system, we would love for you to stop by Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security to speak with any of our knowledgeable staff, or you can simply contact us here.
