    How much do you Audio Installers make?

    I am going to be takin a school in 06 to get that MECP certification and take a side job as an Audio Installer. I am really interested in getting into this field, since i do love dealing with audio. Just in curiosity, how much do u guys in average make? What kind of shops should i stay away from? What do i need to know before getting into this field? How do you like the job?


    You might not wanna reveal ur wage to the public, so feel free to PM me. thanks alot.. i woud love to get as much info as i can.

    Re: How much do you Audio Installers make?

    I'm an installer at Circuit City- part time, at that . Work anywhere from 35-50 hrs/week...been working about 45-50 hrs/week last few weeks though.

    I'm not MECP...if I do get certified, I get a raise...I should get on that lol.

    I still go to school full time as well.
