Anyone have a kit I can borrow, maybe help with tuning my 9887?

Haha, I've been looking for the same here in Iowa. The best I can find is through Crutchfield. You can buy it and return it for a 50 restocking fee. I'll probably go with that. Did you just install your 9887? I installed mine about a week ago and I can't seem to get the sound right. Sounds all radio-like with too much emphasis on the mid frequencies. Did you have the same problem?

Pretty much the same problem. The radio has been installed for about 5 days. Still working with the sound of the unit.

When using the graphic equalizer, I found it's best if you start by setting the 5th band around 16 or 20 kHz, and then adjust and other bands from there and play around with the Q factor until it sounds right. Mine's still a little off.

Heck, buy it on ebay. There are 2 or 3 people with it new in the box on there for under $50.

Crutchfield had a few in the outlet for $25 and for $20 in the scratch and dent last weekend when I ordered mine. Might keep an eye in there.
