    Re: 07 subwoofers

    that sounds really suspicious to me. i had a suburban and i waited in the lobby of my car audio store while they hooked up my amp 2 tens and rewired the car for all the highs to run off that amp. I wired my prievious car (4runner) myself in less then 7 hours -thats installing 4 new speakers all around and 2 tweeters with crossovers and two 10s and an amp as well and i had never wired a car before. I would think the only reasons for that amount of time might be if you want to keep your stock head unit and intigrate that amp and speaks to go with your factory setup, or if they are concerned about removing trim pieces they aren't familiar with and want to pad in some learning curve time. i guess it would depend on if you're keeping the factory deck or not. if not it would be much easier for them if you are its a pretty complex car to figure out as far as the audio system is concerned

    If possible try to have the car in view at all times. Most of these shops have the work area in the rear of the shop... try to hang out in the back just so they know you are watching them. Ive heard of some shops copying keys and using the address you give them only to steal your car weeks later right under your nose... just be careful!!!!

    I have an 07 and have almost finshed putting subwoofers in it. I use to be a professional installer. Seven hours is not that far off. It is a bit of a complicated install due to tne new interior. No space for an amp which means you have to find a location to hide it, tapping into the factory system takes a bit of time, ect. ect.
