In Business Since 1990

River Oaks Car Stereo was founded in 1990 by Owner Eddie Runner (NU5K) by this time Eddie was already a master installer having worked for some of the historic Houston area audio shops starting his career in the early 1970’s.
Eddie was exposed to electronics at an early age thanks to the encouragement by his father and grandfather. He quickly developed a passion for Hi Fidelity sound and short wave radio and pretty much all things electronic or loudspeaker related. Getting his first car and installing an 8-track stereo and CB radio paved the way for a long time love for car audio.

Eddie started installing and repairing CB radios in 1974 which lead to multiple prestigious positions such as working as store manager for Texas Radio, working as the National Installation Manager of a large national chain (Custom Hi-Fi) and 8 years installing high end car audio with Houston Institution (Home Entertainment Inc.) Eventually with the support of the industry and many happy past customers Eddie opened up River Oaks Car Stereo in 1990.
