    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has anyone has any experience with any installers for an ALP system in Texas. Would prefer something near the I-35 corridor, but I haven't seen anything on the forum about any options in the state at all so anything would be welcome. Thanks!

    Yeah, I saw that. Was looking for an a personal recommendation from someone as far as doing a good job at a reasonable price. Have seen plenty of posts from people getting installs at places that don’t seem to completely know what they’re doing, or just overcharge...

    I would just install it myself since it’s pretty simple to do... Any reputable car audio shop can install it, and they should be competitive in pricing. I’d stay away from car toys since they will rape you on the price and any flea market shop. I would also ask if they are familiar with installing laser jammers or at least k40s/escort 9500cis. Come with a game plan on how you want it installed.

    1. Would it be okay to cut or drill if needed.
    2. Where/how do you want the heads installed? (Level, not obstructed and don’t forget about coverage)
    3. Where do you want the cpu mounted incase you need to add/remove components. (Don’t forget you need access to the USB port)
    4.Where do you want the control module/hifi and led installed in the cab?

    Just my 2 cents.

    If you are electrically challenged like myself
    You could have a car audio shop install the main unit and run the wires to the mounted positions

    Then id recommend doing the brackets and/or 3M double tape yourself and leveling as well as testing

    Unless the shop has installed parking sensor systems like this before and have pics

    They make mistakes a 3yr old would do like putting parking sensors heads behind plastic overhangs

    I wired a bunch of stereo stuff back in high school, so I’m not completely without thumbs. I haven’t ever put any wires across a firewall, but I think I can figure that out. I think my major concern is effing up my grill to get the detectors where they need to be. And definitely don’t know how to take the bumper on and off if the NR requires it.

    That’s not a bad idea to have any old speaker shop just run the wires and attach control unit though.
