    Questions to ask an installer?

    Alright, I have a guy lined up to do the install for my speakers. He is a certified installer at Circuit City(which is why I want to question him first, have heard some bad stories). I want to know what kind of questiosn I should ask to judge wether or not hes a good guy to have install these speakers.

    I already know I am going to ask him if he solders connections, what tools and materials he will be using, and also if he would verbally walk me through the installation before he does it.

    Any other things to ask him?
