I have just decided that i want to upgrade my audio system in my 08 g6. I don't have the monsoon system.
I am planning on buying the 500watt alpine 1-channel amp and 1 12" JL audio w0v2 sub hooked up to the stock deck (is it worth it to hook up to a stock deck?). I will be getting these professionally installed. The final cost for all this, wiring and installation came out just over $700.

I am just curious if this a decent setup that will add a nice bump to my music if it is hooked up to the stock deck? and also wondering if I am getting a decent price on all of this?

Thanks

well i do know that the wiring harness for our cars the cost at a stero store its like 150.00 bucks but if your using the stock system it should be ok the only good thing good about a aftermarket stero is you can push more base and most aftermarket steros today have the option for a loud on and a amp boost..if it was me i would invest in a aftermarket stero...hope this helps

Yeeaaa, Alpine MRP M500 Amp - $199.99. JL Audio 12W0v2 - $119.99 + enclosure - $59.99. Total that up and you got 400 dollars after tax. Which means they're charging you 300 for wiring and installation. :eek:

Ok thank you very much for the responses, I'm just curious how much the wiring should cost? and if I'm getting ripped off here what should I do? buy from crutchfield and attempt to install myself?(I have never done it before).

Also i plan on upgrading to an aftermarket stereo once I have more money to spend.

ok, Instead of going with the JL sub, would it be better to go with a 12" type S sub if I listen to more of a variety of music?
