    while i do installs for people, i do them here, where i have tools. it would be cheaper for you to drive here.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    I'm in WI on a regular basis. Have family south of LaCrosse, have friends in Madison and Milwaukee (Mequon).

    my rate is $20/hr for almost anything, and I only bill for time spent working, not talking, planning, or drinking. that goes for anyone on the forum.

    Havent read anymore of the thread since I replied, but here is a quick breakdown if you buy stuff used when you can. These prices are either new or just below brand new. This would be as good as a stereo system you could get before you get to the level of pure insanity... And still costs around $2,300. I really dont see much need for anything any better than Focal K2, Polyglass, Pioneer PRS, and Alpine PDX amplifiers. There is honestly just no need IMO.

    Headunit/Source - Pioneer DEH-80PRS - $300
    Front Stage - Focal 165KR - $450
    Subwoofer - Focal 33V1 - $350
    Amplifier - Alpine PDX-9 - $450
    Deadening - Sound Deadener Showdown - $500
    Wiring/Interconnects - Stinger - $150
    Enclosure/Install Materials - Wood/Paint/Screws/Glue/Etc $100

    i could probably get him a better deal on these brand new.

    Exactly. For $2k or just a bit more, youre going to be about as high end as you can possibly want to be.

    I did a system for a friend of mine on the cheap that sounded GREAT. Basic Pioneer 5100, Focal Polyglass 165VR, Focal 33V1 13" Subwoofer, Crescendo 1000C4, Stinger wiring kit, AudioTechnix deadener, materials for box, etc. He bought all the equipment and materials, I built him a simple aeroport box, did the install for free since he was a friend, and he was out the door for right at $1,000 for a Focal system done RIGHT.
