    Amp installation kit from Best Buy?

    I recently purchased a monoblock amplifier (Precision 1000.1), subwoofer (ID 10" D2V3), and a sub box from Double 07. I went to Best Buy today to pay for the Geek Squad install services. I was told that I need an amp install kit ($110 from Best Buy). Do I need to purchase this from them, or is there a cheaper option online (or is it even needed)?

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not really sure what exactly it is I need (or what specifications).

    Awesome. Don't want to make this a DIY project? You'll save a good deal and learn a lot about your system

    Thought about it, but I'm more of a computer person. I know my way around well enough that I'm not afraid I'll permanently fry something. Not the same situation with a car It's also a time constraint issue. I'm a 4th year med student studying for boards. I don't get enough free time for DIY projects sadly.

    Fair enough. Just try to avoid best buy unless you have a friend who works there. They may up charge you or, worst case, can't warranty your stuff if it breaks during install. I'd find a local shop that has a good track record.
