I got nearly everything from ebay man. I got the stereo from my company but everything else...ebay.

pioneer 5900ib ~ 60 (retail ~220)
i got my amp on ebay. ~150 (retail ~250-300)
sub also on ebay ~ 155 (retail ~400)
4 gauge wire kit ~ 26 (retail ~100)
2 6x9 pioneers soundbar speakers paid full retail ~110 (forgot about ebay)

wood for everything ~ 30-35 (20 bucks for the sub and 10-15 for the soundbar)
carpet.. had some at home

I'd highly recommend 2 way car alarm (i have one and could not be happier)

you mean like stolen stuff? Gotta ask for shipping # and also check the sellers feedbacks and read the item discription carefully. Don't want to get a picture of your stuff as i've seen people paying few thousand bucks for an empty xbox/ps3 box or a picture of it.

This is the 5th stereo I've had for my junk.

I had an alpine that I replaced with another alpine. That one was stolen. Replaced with a pioneer and it jacked up. So I got a panasonic. My wifes stereo was stolen the night before we were leaving on a long trip so I took the panasonic out of my jeep and installed it in her jeep where it still plays out the beats.

The one I'm getting now better stay there for a long time. LOL

No I mean like when I pay cash I like to leave with something. Not have to wait on shipping.

I have a good hook up for car stereo.

we have a bumpin stereo in the shop. 2 - 15s and a healthy amp. It is enough that you have to yell over it.

I'm pretty sure it will roll out of the shop on its own power next Friday. Jessi is out on vacation so my drive shafts aren't getting made until Monday. Gotta be patient I guess. LOL

I wouldn't use rolling as the description. I'd say driving?

total retail cost of the stuff I'm getting is nowhere close to what I'm paying. I don't pay retail for anything I buy

My system will include... (I'm gonna steal these pics from crutchfield.)



to a 4 channel big huge amp!!



That amp will run my mids.



and the rears.



This mono block will run my subs.



I will have 2 of these in the 10" version.



plus all the wiring which is expensive!!
