    How much a shop charge?

    How much does a shop usually charge to install a set of components?

    Depends on where they're being mounted and if you've already got wires run to those locations or not.

    Local shops vary from $65-$90. Stores like Best Buy will do it for $50, BUT they want about $20 for each hole they have to drill (for mounting tweets in A pillars, etc.)

    Re: How much a shop charge?

    okay, good. I thought I was getting ripped off, heh. Place by me called first impressionz is asking $90 for then install. I thought that was kinda high of a price, but seems like it isn't. I don't mind shelling the cash, I just wanted to know what usual places charge. I called up auto image and the guy said around $75. but, i know first impressionz does good work.

    I was going to do the install myself, but I **** at life and decided just to pay for it, heh. I'm more of installing performance parts..

    I appreciate all the info given.

    btw, the component set is RE 6.5's

    Still debating on which amp to get.

    you can install performance mods on your engine, but can't handle a set of comps??? Interesting

    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    well, If I took the time, I could install it. It's just that I'd rather have someone else do it for me, heh. Call it lazy, call it stupid, but yeah.
