Everett area recommendations for speaker panel fabrication

As the title says...Everett, WA area recommendations for speaker panel fabrication

I have a set of focal utopia 165w3 I want to put in my 2003 330i
I went to 'sound advice and they quoted me 1200 for bottom section of the door panel for the mids and woofers. no tweeter pod.
Car toys quoted 1800 for mids and woofers in a bottom section of the door panel , and new tweeter pods.

are there any other places that do custom trustworthy work in the area? and are they all going to be in this range?? cartoys sort of seemed a little steep to me.

Opinions.?

Thanks...<---newfag here

There are a few good shops up across the border in Canada - might be too much of a drive for you though. I deal with these guys.

Well I decided to go to sound advice. They did good work, but unfortunately not the work that we had discussed on. Instead of building fiberglass pods for the focal mids, he just installed them into the door panels and charged the same amount. Some other issues as well.
Needless to say I am disappointed.
