yeah man i would help but 9 hrs for a install....... Sorry. You can DIY cause its piss. Just take door trims off and replace speakers. Rears are easier. Sub......Dont take short cuts because thats when things f**k up. But yeah. There has to be someone here that can do it for you in VIC

Nothing quite like blowing up an amp two days from Summernats audio comps, then rushing around to beg/borrow/steal another one and get it install and TUNED in time.

i installed a cd player 6" splits 6x9" at the back (had to cut holes) 12" sub in box and 1 amp into my el xr6 and took me around 3-4 hours.. its easy and fun to do.. hardest part was the back speakers and running thw wires to fit.. apart from that its pretty straight forward.. do it your selve mate a bit of fun

try and do it urself. in the end ull feel much better cause u saved 300 bux and that u have learned something new and now know how to do it urself. Another bonus would be if something goes wrong you would know where to look cause you know where u placed the wires and stuff........i would help you install it if u were close to thomastown and when the exams are over.

phong =P~
