wow - that JBL MS8 is really wicked. and very pricey.
I was hoping to stay around $1k installed - -
JBL P660c front speakers - $150
JBL P662s soundbar speakers- $85
Audiocontrol LC6i line out converter- $110
Alpine MRX-V70 5 channel amp - $265
ancillaries (wires, cables,etc) - $100
total $710 (ebay prices though for the equipment)
I'm thinking maybe $300-$400 for labor?
