Default A couple questions

1. If I order a system online, specifically sonic electronix, and I take everything I ordered into an audio place would they install it for me, even though I didn't buy the stuff from them?

I can get a whole system on SE for just under $600. Whereas if I bought everything in store, it would run me over $700.

2. I'm only running 2 speakers in my truck because it's a standard cab, and the rear speakers don't really make a difference. (theres currently no rear speakers, but it's not even noticable because the cab is small.)

Here's my second question: What amp would I need to run 2 speakers and a 10" Kicker CVT sub? (400 watts RMS 800 watts peak)

Would a 4-channel amp work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To answer a few yes a 4 channel will work with your door speaker i run memphis all around with a 4 channel. I like mono for the subs you can bridge the 4 to run the sub better if you want. A shop most the time will do the install sometimes they like you to buy it from them though its all up to the store.

If they are interested in customer service they would do it. I would assume they would probably charge you a small instllation fee,for their time though.

You can purchase an InstallCard from Sonic with your system which is really just a pre-payment for an installation form an authorized dealer. If you do have a local installer in-mind already, ask before you place your order with Sonic to compare which option is less expensive.

Yes, most places offer installation for a price.

Pretty much any shop will install something that did not come from their store. Make sure you buy a single 4 or dual 2 sub so that you end up with a 4 ohm load otherwise the amp will not work. I put a lot of setups in using a crescendo 4 channel amp. Does 125x2 for the front components and 500x1 bridged on the rear channels to a sub. Great amps for this type of budget setup.
