Anything else I need?

Hello. I'm wondering if there is anything else I need for the system I am putting together. I'm about to put in a few orders for things to be picked up in the US so I want to be sure that I order everything that I need.

I have: a sub, sub box, sub amp, wiring harness, dash install kit
What I'm going to order: a deck, wiring kit, door speakers

I will be running the door speakers off the head unit. Is there anything that I've missed?

Thanks guys.

The fact that you don't even know what you need is a perfect reason you shouldn't be buying online. Online is for experts like me that do all their own install work, know what they need and want, not worried about warranty issues, and are very familiar with products and online vendors. Do yourself a favour and contact a local shop or one of the vendors on here for good advice and a great package deal. I've seen so many newbies get burned online it brings a tear..just one...to my eye.

Looks to me like you have everything mentioned that you will need I am not sure why you need to be a pro/ expert to order stuff online, lmfao!

The best prices for items that I have found seem to be shipped from ebay from the US. Which is no biggie since I live about 30min from the border.

Thanks guys. I hope to be bumping soon! =)

Well I've compared prices and it's a lot cheaper if I go on ebay and order. The shipping on most of the items I'm buying is free. I think it's $10 combined for all 4 items I'm looking to buy. Plus $5 gas to go over the border to pick it up. To me it sounds like a good deal.

But you're right, duties! I'm am definetley worried about that. But I think the items I'm ordering are made in North America. A Eclipse CD5030, Polk db651's, knukonceptz wiring, and a sub grill. If it's made in North America, doesn't it mean no duties? Sorry, I may be misinformed where this stuff is made. I can't or can only find conflicting information about it's origin.

Definitely not made in North America. Not only will you have duty, you will also have both taxes to pay + US $ conversion + no warranty in Canada. Blast me a PM with your parts list and pricing and I will see what I can do for you. Will it be the same, no. Will it have far better service and warranty for you, yes. I know you don't work for free, I would hope that the service I provide to you is worth something.

Get an amp for the door speakers. You'll regret not getting one now and have to do it later anyway.
