ok i have less money than i first thought i did for my stereo system :(


http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 5755734412
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 5785257440
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 5785210381
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... eName=WDVW


hows that??

pioneer 5750 head unit
12 stack pioneer
pioneer splits
pioneer amp (4x 120 but it runs 2x 120 + 300x1 which is perfect for what i need)

ill also have cadence zx651 in the rear parcel shelf driven by hu and a 15" venom in the boot.


how much will all the cabling be?
i will also need it to be professionally installed.


so a) how much for cables and installation at like jb hifi or something?
and b) if i ditch the 12 stacker (cos hu has mp3) how much cheaper would cables/installation be?



cheers
bentles

(cos ill do it when driving and probably kill something cos its just as bad as smsing while driving if u get my point. its my mum who wants me to get the 12 stacker but its not 100% needed she says cos the h/u is mp3.
(cos ive got a lot more music than 180 song :p)

All up you would be looking at $100 for just the wiring, including the amp kit.. Amp kits depending on type etc usually sell for about $80.. Comes with everything you need.

As for installation well best idea thier is to get quotes from your local car audio specialists. As labour pricing is different everywhere, and you might find that some places charge more but do a better job, where as you can get places that charge less and will do a not so good job...

Good luck.

And yeah you dont need a disc stacker if your gonna have a MP3 HU better off saving the money and using it elsewhere :)

You dont really need a cd stacker especially if your on a tight budget and the money could be better spent elsewhere + you have mp3. The average CD would probably be 60-80 minutes long anyway and unless you live in the country then im guessing a lot of your driving will be less than 30 mintues from A to B.

Just use common sense if you know its not a good time to change cd's wait until it is, im sure you would have heard the songs on the CD you want to listen to heaps before anyway.

Basically if you cant make a proper judgement as to when to change a cd then you really shouldnt be behind the wheel of 1.5 tonnes of metal, catch a bus and listen to your ipod instead.

Pioneer (and many others) do include stickers with their products.
Very good marketing sense, people that put sickers on their cars generally want to be seen / heard which is what pioneer and others want. If only q person buys a product as a result they are better off, especially for the sake of a 80cent sticker

Systems looks fine. 4 channel running fronts and sub + rears from headunit single 15" no problems....

thats fair enough ,but i think the smart ones who would have a stereo in thier car dont want to advertise it to thieves by putting stickers on there cars.
i know i wouldnt do that :wink:
