    Help me plan out a HU install

    I went to a vary of local audio shops, it seems the median price for a HU install for my vehicle is $250-350 installed, i only have a quote of one place here on hand.. $328.60

    Anywho, i wanted to get some opinions on everything i would need for an install in my 2003 Pontiac Bonneville with ONSTAR(required to retain) and non amplifier radio system

    Only thing i have picked out is the required harness at the lowest price i can find:
    Metra GMOS-05 $70

    HU i had in mind was the kenwood KDC-x396 @ $130, that already brings me to $200



    ** NEW VEHICLE AND BUILD ** 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport
    2x SPLAudio DAD BD 12s
    2x SK-1500.1s
    Box 5 cubes @ 29hz
    XS Power D3100 & D2400
    Tenney 270A
    4x PowerBass 3xl 6.5s
    Clarion CZ702

    I don't know exactly how ONSTAR incorporates into the stock radio, but $330 is way high for a HU install.

    Re: Help me plan out a HU install

    while your at it just chop off yor right arm and give it to them...but seriously, thats crazy high. I would say do it yourself, and find someone on here who has installed a HU on a car with on star. If not here, Im sure there has to be write ups on it somewhere else on the interwebz
