If you own something with a motor, you have a set of keys to go with it. From starting your engine to unlocking your door, your key (as you already know) plays a multifaceted role. That said, should the time arise that your keys become lost or broken, you’ll be faced with the choice of auto key duplication or replacement.
So, which do you chose? Here, Speed Of Sound Audio Experts are talking about the differences.
Depending on the need, key duplication is often the quicker, more affordable option. However, if your keys have been lost or stolen, this may not be the best option.
Key duplication utilizes data embedded within the transponder to create an identical replication. Thus, if your keys are lost or stolen, making a duplicate doesn’t protect you from potential theft. Besides, it’s often impossible to gather the needed data without the original key to abstract the codes from.
Instead, this option is best if you’re looking for extra keys, duplicates. However, it’s important to remember that a duplicate can not be used in the event of a lockout. In this instance, the original (or a replacement) will be the only way to gain access to your vehicle.
On the other side, key replacement completely reprograms the key with your vehicle’s computer system. This option tends to be the most versatile as it can be used even if the original is not available. While returning to the dealer is an option, the more affordable way to obtain a key replacement is to give Speed of Sound a call.
Be prepared to show ownership of the vehicle. Using the vehicle’s VIN, our team of experts will replace and reprogram the keys to your vehicle.
At Speed of Sound, we have the in-house technology, experience, and knowledge to help you no matter what the situation may be. From auto key duplication to key replacement, we have you covered – and, at an affordable price. Why pay more at the dealership when our team is only a phone call away?

Are you stressing yourself out by constantly worrying about your only car key? Have you accidentally left your keys in the car one too many times? There’s nothing more frustrating than forgetting where you left your keys when you’re running late! Thus, perhaps it time to consider key replacement or duplication. Speed of Sound can duplicate your car key and guarantee that it will work just as well as the original!
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to visit a dealership to duplicate or replace a set of car keys. This also goes for push-to-start, chip responders, and key fobs! So how does Speed of Sound make this happen? Well, we have access to the cutting-edge technology that allows us to replace, duplicate, and reprogram the keys to fit your make and model car through the onboard diagnostics tool.
There is still hope if you don’t have a spare and need a replacement! First, you need to gather some information about your vehicle for the experts: vehicle make and model, registration number, vehicle identification number (VIN), and personal identifying information to prove you’re the owner. Then, we can reprogram your vehicle to a new set of keys so the old set will no longer be compatible. Why? Just in case someone finds them, they will no longer unlock and start the car.
Key duplication is a much simpler process than key replacement. We can make a replacement as long as we are given a car transponder, chip car key, push-to-start key, or dealer chip key. Although, for certain types of keys, we require the vehicle to stay on-site to properly program it to the car. But don’t worry, it’ll be back to you in a day! The peace of mind will be worth the wait.
We can do so much more than just key replacement and duplication here at Speed of Sound. Since 1991, we’ve specialized in car, marine, power sport, and security solutions for everyone! Looking for reputable and top-quality work? You’ve come to the right place!
