I would buy the equipment off the net from somewhere like Low Cost Car Audio, Let's Buy Car Audio or MCS Direct and install yourself unless you want amps and subs etc. They'll be much cheaper than most shops.
If your going down that route the first one has mobile installers

Try Prestige Audio then. They installed my system. Very neat and custom built sound shelves etc. Subs are bolted to custom parcel shelf to maintain boot space and sound awsome!! Click on My Car to see photos

Hey martin. I am liking that boot install of yours. Did they have to cut the rear shelf to get those subs in? What size/make are they?

Parcel shelf remains intact and un-cut. They basically created a new sound board that is fixed on the underside of the shelf in the boot which the subs bolt to. The amps also have there own custom enclosure. that bolts somewhere near the back seat.

The amps are Genesis
The subs are JL Audio (10" I think but could be 8's - cant remember!)

All in with amps, power cap, ALPINE head unit, front speakers and tweeters and complete fitting it was around £3K and sounds it too!!

Turned up loud for motorways and turned down around town!!

Thats who I meant mate!! Got the invoices mixed up!! Prestige did the alarm system and Soundstage did the ICE Install. All I can say Steel is that you've got great taste in terms of the quality kit thats in there!! The car is still going strong too and will be at Japfest this weekend.

Martin, glad to see your still enjoying it. Saw the pics of a black six under your profile and thought that it was written off! Only realised later that it was your old car
