    Re: How Much Money Did You Spend On Your Entire System?

    I TRY not to think about it, but since you asked...

    HU: Alpine 9813 $300 off eBay.
    Amps: Orion 225HCCA x 3 (for the next week or so if I even get them in before the 250 shows up) $500 each new in '96 for 2 and $150 off eBay for the 3rd. The 250 I got NOS for $295 shipped.
    Subs: JL audio 10W6 x 3 (original model) $250 each new in '96. $80 each for a recone (car accident and several years in storage took their toll) a fe wmonths ago.
    Speakers: CDT ES-620 $439 from the Zeb.
    Wiring: Audiopipe 1/0 and 4 ga $100 (there's a lot of wire ), Stinger Bullet 17' interconnects x 2 $27 each, Stinger Expert series battery terminals, fuse holders and distro blocks ~$150, Stinger Expert series speaker wire 10ga (20') and 14 ga (100') ~$80.

    Total: $3263

    Time to acquire: 8 years

    Time to install: 1 month and counting. Hopefully it will at least be working in the next week.

    Now you see why I try not to think about it.

    Re: How Much Money Did You Spend On Your Entire System?

    See my sig,

    ALL NEW
    --------
    $215 HU
    $175 components
    $399 subwoofer
    $140 subwoofer box
    $100 custom kick panels
    $140 amp 1
    $250 amp 2
    $100 second 800amp battery
    +/-$150 installation fees
    +/-$175 wiring and RCAs

    I have the best sounding car audio system I've ever heard. If you ever get to sit in my car and hear my system, you'll know I did pretty good for $2000.

    It took about a year, piece by piece.
    At this point, I could not ask for better.

    You should never break yourself getting car audio.
    Most of us that have posted so far have spent atleast a year acquiring what we have. And if you have a decent, STEADY job, $2000 isn't a WHOLE LOT over 12-18 months time. Especially if you still live with your parents like I do, hehehe.
