Looking for shops

Ok, I'm getting geared up to buy stuff and put together another system. I've been looking on the internet for dealers that sell at wholesale prices but haven't had much luck. Anybody know any or any car audio stores around DFW that sells under these?

I'm looking into getting:
1. one JL audio 10w7, I found a place that will sell them for $390 a piece.

2. one PPI PCX2200 amp, the lowest price I have found is asking $500.

3. An alpine CD player, the CDA7876, lowest I've found is $335

4. I'm also looking into component speakers but I don't know what brand to get, I'm thinking i'll stick to JL audio but I'm open to suggestions (and I know you guys have them) so let em rip.

BTW this is for a 92 Hatchback.

thanks,
Jerred

Sorry, right now ebay is not really a place I want to shop. I just got dicked out of a PS2 by this guy that was selling on dutch auction, about 75 of us sent the $225 to him and he never sent any of them . Someone called the FBI and all of us filed a fraud complaint on Ebay. I'd rather find a shop until I know I get my money back.

It costs money to run a shop where you can:
1. Get a warranty on your product.
2. Get knowledgeable help/recommendations.
3. Get service on your product when you need it.
4. Not get burned on the net.

I carry all the products you have listed.

My real advise is buy from an authorized dealer, not some clown selling car audio out of his bedroom who will not be able to take care of issues later.
Autosound in Bedford.

Good advise EW, I'll stop by the place sometime about the 10w7. I think I asked you (eric, right?) a month or two ago about how much you were selling them for.

Also, the only thing I was looking at that wasn't from a authorized dealer was the w7. I don't look onto any of those guys that sell stuff "out of their bedroom" as you would call it, only the shops that I have some connections to and can get for discount from friends.

Still anyone want to give some advise on the components? I hear from a friend MB Quartz is nice and I'm looking for some advise on the rears, do they even make non- round (ie. 6"x8") components?

same with me FFC.

Pay an extra 30-50% and get service you might never use, or get the discount and have money left enough to get it fixed IF you ever break it

Jerred,

Yes MB Quart does make speakers like 5x7....You can get some examples from cartoys they arent at all the lowest prices but they are a good place to get ideas from.

MB Quart only makes a entry level 5x7(cheap). We do not carry them.
JL makes an excellent coax with seperate crossover and a super sweet component set with a badass crossover. Both in stock.
