    What's a good store for installations???

    I live in southern california. Here's what I bought and I'm ready to rock and roll. But I am a newbie and I don't want to screw up my car.

    Pioneer DEH P4400
    Infinity Kappa Perfect 12.1 (2 of these)
    Sony XM-3001GXD Amplifier 1000watt
    American International UP-K750 Dash panel kit
    Dual Subwoofer Boxes > HBX12SQB
    American Accessories POWERKIT-4 Amp Wiring kit


    Now that should be everything and every part I need. I need to find somebody around my place who can install all this for cheap and with good service and warranty. ANyone know a good store?

    Should I go to best buy? good guys?

    thanks!

    the ultimate image in covina does a great job on installs. i get all my stuff there and their installs come with a lifetime warranty.

    I'm curious, are BestBuy or Circut City any good at installations? Or is it just hit or miss depending on who is doing the work. I'm just talking about installing a 4 channel amp, by the way.

    Best Buy and Circuit City do good jobs from what I hear but the prices are BS!!! One day I was looking in there and saw that the price to install a H/U was $60.

    Okay well I heard this store called "Pacific Stereo" charges $9 for head unit installation, and $45 for amp wiring.

    Also, my friend told me since my camry 2000 has premium sound system, (6 speakers) it will cost extra. Is this true?

    thanks!

    I am willing to spend at most, $75 tops for installation of amp, wiring, head unit.

    I have all the necessary stuff.

    I've been quoted $65-75 + wiring kit&RCA's for wiring a 4 channel amp to my door speakers, is this an OK price or am I being shafted?

    That was from 3 different stores, BestBuy, Circuit City and a local car audio store. I'm curious if I should keep looking or if that's about what the local market is running?
