CDA 9847 $499

i'd go as far as to suggest it's too cheap to be guaranteed a really high quality installation. so ensure you're getting quality work. all the wiring, cabling, terminals, fuse/holder would usually come in around $60~100 if you bought it separately. and a custom made subbox around $100~150; a prefab may be a bit cheaper, but could compromise on quality/design.
the components are very, very good. the weak link, as suggested already, are the speakers. ensure you like the sound of the type-Rs, but compare with other quality brands the store offers.
i would prefer stuff like:
*boston acoustics S60
*morel pulse 6
*mb quart DSE-216
being the most important component of all, make sure they're good and will keep you happy for years.
the sub/amp combo is excellent. hard to beat at their pricepoint. the subbox is critical too - as important as the sub itself. the type-S sub works really well in a 1.2cuft 'sealed' box; make sure this is what you're getting.
the following are what i would 'prefer' to have done with any basic install:
*adaptor wiring harness for HU for plug-and-play (eg: aerpro brand)
*mdf spacer rings for door speakers
*proper car audio fuse/holder: 5AG or maxiblade
*custom built subbox to suit sub and car, trimmed in matching colour carpet
*quality tuning of amp
other stuff worth considering as extras:
*sound deadener on doors
*higher (build) quality fuseholder, cabling, RCAs
maybe double-check what you're getting. copy this list if need-be.
