Newport autosound on newport blvd between 19st street and 17th street. (between del taco and purple haze)

They gave me good prices on my alpine hu (it was still a rip-off when you compare them to online retailers like wooferetc). If i were you, i would buy the stuff online and then go their to have them install it for you.

How much did they charge you for the installation? I am planning on buying all the wiring necesary for the installation so that they only charge for the service. Imma check this place out for sure its right by my house so it makes it convenient

I've dealt with Sean at Newport Autosound on numerous occassions. Great customer service, all around good guy.

They price-matched majority of the online stores when I purchased from them.

LMAO, nice one. I'm a real man, i do my installs myself. I went their before i know about online stores like wooferetc, onlinecarstereo,etc.

I only go their now for miscellaneous parts, like circuit breakers and distribution block. I like how you can usually haggle the price a bit down and they seem more trust worthy compared to the sketchy people at al & eds autosound.

What do you need installed? A simple amp and subwoofer or do you want door speakers as well.

I mean i can easily install everything, thats not even a problem. Of course i would charge a nominal fee. A sub/amp would be cheeper then a sub/door speakers/ and 2 amp install.

If you go to a shop and try to have speakers, subs, speakers and amps installed i would say they would charge you 400 bucks +.(unless the economy has made people lower their prices)

That's actually pretty good. I would go to them. You might want to go mar vac in costa mesa for the cabling. That 85 bucks wont include the power/ground and sub cables. Of course newport autosound would sell you cables themselves but idk how it would compare in price to mar vac tho.
