Ok, I'm l starting my complete system install soon and wanted to get the feel for what all you "pros" have to say on the topic.
Grand Total for my system is gonna run me about $1400, that includes HU, 2x6.5 Components in the front and 2x6.5 Coaxels in the back. Stage II will be an amp and sub/box.
I'm not looking to win competitions with this system.
I've done some price checking and even talked to a stereo installer yesterday and here is what I'm finding.
1. It's expensive, esp if you do the entire truck, firewall, doors, floor and rear bed wall. For what it's gonna cost, do I really need to do it? Am I really gonna notice it that much? With what I'm putting in my truck now, is it gonna take it from a Decent sounding system to crap if I don't? When i asked the "installer" about it he told me that unless I planned on trying to win competitions he wouldn't do anything more than maybe the doors. He told me it can be very tricky to install, very difficult to do unless you used heat and even then if you weren’t experienced in doing it, it could become a major disaster.
So...what do you think?
