Hey whats up everyone, a couple of days ago i when to get my sub installed. But when the guy was done looking at it he said it was going to be a 4hr install. Is this true, so if anyone has installed a sub them selves can tell me this that would be great.
I did all of my own install. Actually took around 3 weeks to complete, but i did a complete heavy deadening job, rebuilt my doors, mounted my tweets in my a-pillars, built my sub box, ran 0 awg, tweak tweak tweak and still not really finished. I'm always tweaking the sound to make it better.
All in all, it took only a few hrs really to get amps up and going, hardest part was running my 0awg through the firewall.
yeah 4hours isn't bad.. you wouldn't want the guy to tell you 1 hour and come back and find the car has been hacked up.. you should be happy he's taking his time.. you can always hang out and watch if they let ya..
most good shops do take their time, not for the money, but so that the customer is happy with a professional job!
I can never grasp why people mention short install times as a point of pride. It's not a drag race-- faster does not equal better. My install was divided up over about 5 days, working several hours each day.
For an audio shop, 4 hours time to install an HU, sub and amp is not out of the question, or even unusual.
