2005 G35 Coupe Amp Install/Converter Kit, Help Please?
This is my first post here, and I just have a quick question for everyone that I'd really appreciate an answer to. I got my G35 coupe last summer and absolutely love it, but I wanted to add an aftermarket sub-woofer. I used to have an 06 Nissan Altima that I put an amp and two 12" subs in, but I had it all taken out when my lease was up on the car. I got a new sub-woofer to fit in the G35 trunk, but still have the same amp and amp converter cables from the original system. I have no problems hooking the sub up to the amp, but don't know how to install the amp in my G35, so I figured I'd take it to Best Buy. They say that the converter I have isn't long enough, and recommend I either buy their $80 "Kicker Amp Wire Kit 8 Gauge" or if I want to save money, buy one online although they claim that a cheaper one won't be as good as the one they sell. I feel like if the converter I had was long enough for the Altima (which is a bigger car than the G35 coupe), shouldn't it be fine to put in my Infiniti? Best buy wants $70 to install the amp, $40 to install the line output converter (which I'm sort of confused about), plus the cost of another amp converter kit which they claim I need.
Basically, are they just trying to scam me into buying a new kit from them, or do I actually need to buy a new Amp converter kit? If so, do you all have any recommendations as to where I should buy one, and if spending $80 to get the one they sell is worth the higher quality. Also, what line output converter and why am I being charged an extra fee for that install?
Thanks a ton, I really appreciate it.
