How much does it cost to install a subwoofer and amp in cars?

We all want our car rides to be fun and relaxing, even if it’s just a quick one to the nearby shopping center or dropping kids at school. With that being said, subwoofers and amplifiers have become a norm for many of us. It feels like an ultimate upgrade and a means to make your car stand out.  

When paired with an amp, subwoofers are an enhanced audio output device that amplifies sound waves and signals. But the question is, how much does such an installation charge? But that is not an easy answer. The cost calculations of such a service depend on various factors.

Price of installing a subwoofer and amp in cars:

On average, the basic installation fee is between 15,000 INR to 20,000 INR. However, the cost can go up to 30,000 INR for complicated car models and systems. The installation is a package of setting up the subwoofers, amplifier, and the required wiring. 

  • The amount is worth it as installing an amplifier and its components properly are tricky and complicated.
  • Even though a simple mistake or glitch may not be noticeable as your subwoofers will be running well. However, it could seriously damage your car if installed incorrectly.
  • Further, subwoofers are enormous, and car mechanics charge more if they are to be seated in the vehicle’s ‘difficult-to-reach’ areas. 

Remember, the price of installing the components does not include the cost of purchasing the same. You are needed to buy subwoofers and amplifiers separately as per your sound requirements and suitability to the vehicle. We advise you to research the car stereo, supporting models, and locality, search for the ones new to the car audio and look for extra bass to your music.
