What would you charge?

I was just wondering what to charge for this install I just did?
He supplied the subs and amp, I supplied all wiring, wood, materials.
Any info would be appreciated.

I feel like a dope, I thought you said what would u change, not charge. lol
figure out what your supplies cost you, I'd add a little extra to that, not to much though. Then figure out how long it took you to do the job, and what you would think is reasonable to charge per hour.

400 sounds like a reasonable price for a job like that.

Some people charge double to triple the materials. Easy way to figure it out.

I usually charge for material. Then about 3/4 of what a shop would charge for labour.
For that it probably would have been like 300-400$$ worth of labour (would have to see it up close) at a shop

*Sigh* If only i could find people who want a decent install like that, i would charge them like $200 to do it. I love doing these types of installs, and am fairly good at doing it as well, just can't find anyone who wants to spend the money for something like this.
