Install charges

Hello gang. Went to my local installer in Japan.

They want $400 to put in front components rear speakers, and amp.

This is not including wireing as they said they are going to use the existing wireing.

Also, they are not going to but any sound deading material in the doors. They want another $500 to put sound deading material in the doors. IS this price to much. What are the typical costs for installs..?

Find somebody that knows how to do it. Give him some cash and bring pizza and beer and do it together in his driveway.

Helluva lot cheaper plus you'll learn a thing or two.

I mean guys the think that worries me the most is taking the door panels off. I mean if I brake something I am F**ked. How easy is it and do I need some special tool?

Next big question for sound damping material. Dynmat is to expensive in Japan. I was thinking of going to a hardware store and getting thin rubber matting with adhesive on one side. What do you think..
