Angry outrageouse prices in northern ontario

so i go into Electronic North today ( local alpine supplier) to get some info on subs and amps, and this sales guy try`s to sell me a type x sub( 12") with no box for 800 buks, and an amp ( not to sure of the model) for 900 buks, and to make things even better he`s got this amp wiring kit out for 149.99. ( by the way... the rca cables arn`t included) and hes telling me that i might as well spend the money on a good amp wiring kit, because he`s seen three cheaper ones cath on fire this year alone! so he says all of this stuff is top of the line, and that they offer the best prices around. now im not a car audio expert by any means, but dont you think we`re getten robbed up north lol???

I go to school at Nipissing and I've been to that shop. Screw them and screw their prices, I got my type X and MRD-1005 and all the bits and pieces to get it in and running for 1600.. I over paid, but I got the stuff when it first came out. I can get a type X for 560 retail or 360 used. Try stereo plus, their somewhat more reasonable, and they carry alpine

For that price, its worth the drive to southern ontario. Nothing makes me want to jump in the car like a couple hundred bucks in savings!

toronto? when someones gets a deal down here please let me know. i frequented alot shops in the gta and its very rare to walk away with extra quid in your pocket. i`ve only found deals on gear that was clearing out, and if your looking for high end suff....forget it.

sorry to say once again its the good ol U.S of A where the real deals are. but thats not all without its drawbacks as well.

Sounds a little pricey to me you should call around to different alpine dealers and price it out.
