I am having my local place (Typhoon) do the install, and I bought all my stuff online from a company called Hooked On Tronics. They have great prices and fast delivery. Just make sure the item is in stock when you order.
I got a Sony CD, Sat., mp3 50x4 head unit, 4 Kicker 6 1/2" speakers, 1 10" Kicker Sub and a Pyle 600 watt amp for $468 delivered to my door. The Kicker marine speakers have a trick grill too.

With your cockpit gutted you could easily do it yourself if you have basic stereo knowledge.

I installed an Alpine head unit with Ipod interface, 4 6.5" Infinity speakers, 2 10" Infinity subs, 2 1000 watt amps, 4 crossovers, and a capacitor in my Pantera after buying it. It had nothing at all in it at the time so the scariest part was cutting the holes!

I also mounted an Ipod holder under the dash so you don't even see it. Just use the head unit to control everything. Pretty slick.

The sub amp has a bass control that I mounted right under the head unit. Just reach down and give it a quick twist for more or less bass.

I built enclosures for the subs so they are totally sealed.

I made something similar for my Nano. Made the grey one also for a buddy to match his grey dash. I now have an iPod Touch, so been making a new dash mount today for the new iPod. Will be same concept, just larger.

Yep, JL Audio is expensive but worth it. Much better sound than all the others. If you can do the install yourself , and want to get JL stuff alot better price , I have a connection. Just let me know??
