Hi everyone,

I am a design student currently doing a project for Kicker Audio. I’m working on researching the installation process of car audio systems. I’d like to get some input from enthusiasts on their own experiences. Here’s a few initial questions:

  • Would you do the install yourself, or pay to have it done?
  • How much time did your install take, if you did it yourself?
  • Would you say that certain cars are easier to install systems in to?
  • Does the difficulty of the install change depending on components that make up an audio system?
  • Would you need any tools beforehand to do an install, and if so, how many?
  • If you could change anything about the install process, now or in the future, what would it be?

It would be a great deal of help to hear from anybody that can provide some info! Thanks!

Hope this helps for me having a background in electrical I prefer installing myself however for a beginner it's good to have it installed so you can learn . Also really how custom you want to have your system be.

  • Would you do the install yourself, or pay to have it done? ---I would do it myself
  • How much time did your install take, if you did it yourself? ---Between picking speaker setup buying and installing about a month.
  • Would you say that certain cars are easier to install systems in to? -- yes a car to me is easier because trunk space where a truck for instance is more difficult to fit everything sometimes.
  • Does the difficulty of the install change depending on components that make up an audio system?-- yes
  • Would you need any tools beforehand to do an install, and if so, how many?---4 to 5
  • If you could change anything about the install process, now or in the future, what would it be?---- custom options available to buy

It would be a great deal of help to hear from anybody that can provide some info! Thanks!
