Our Clients are Number One
At Sweet Sounds we are a client satisfaction-driven group of automotive electronics experts and enthusiasts! We specialize in delivering thoughtful solutions at a great value. We’ve been in the Mankato area since 1993 and have an excellent reputation among our existing clientele and our community. Let us share some of our background and experience with you.
We began as a small shop with a deep desire to serve our community with the expertise of a professional car audio and electronics specialist that understands the local market. Along the way we’ve been deeply involved with the community and often participate in events and promotions that benefit the community. The Sweet Sounds demonstration vehicle has provided music and entertainment at local parades, charity events and school functions. Our on-staff experts have written mobile audio, remote starter and technology-based articles in the local newspaper and other community publications. More than anything we are living and working in the same community with which we are involved. Our clients are not just people with whom we do business; they are neighbors and friends.

That’s how we can call ourselves experts with confidence.
