Have your new single subwoofer installed neatly, reliably and professionally by a Geek Squad Autotech. Our Autotechs workmanship is warrantied for life. Additional materials fees apply; see below for more details.*
Preparing your car
We'll go through a preinstallation checklist and, if necessary, remove your existing subwoofer.
Factory-installed look and functionality
We'll wire the subwoofer and box terminals, and ensure the subwoofer is securely fastened to the enclosure. We can also secure the enclosure to your vehicle at your request.
To finish, we'll perform a postinstallation checklist, vacuum the work area, and give you a demonstration of the subwoofer's features.
How to redeem and schedule your installation:
After ordering, you'll get a redemption e-mail containing a key code that validates your order. Find your nearest installation center and call to schedule an appointment.
What to bring to your installation appointment:
Bring a printout of your redemption e-mail, the subwoofer you want installed, and any other parts you may have purchased for the installation.
*Standard installation does not include vehicle-specific parts or accessories. For single subwoofer installation, the cost of parts will vary. Such parts and any additional parts or extensive labor are extra.
Your Geek Squad Autotech will provide an estimate prior to performing work that requires an additional charge (including nonstandard installation) and any additional parts. Any additional charges will be assessed after the installation is complete.
The vast majority of our reviews come from verified purchases. Reviews from customers may include My Best Buy members, employees, and Tech Insider Network members (as tagged). Select reviewers may receive discounted products or points for an honest, helpful review.

WARNING! DO NOT BUY SERVICES ONLINE!
I purchased this service online only to realize later that it was the incorrect type due to poor product description. I was unable to obtain a refund using the Order Status page, so I followed the instructions in the confirmation email to obtain said refund.
The email instructions sent me to the Autotech Service webpage, where I entered the confirmation number to verify my purchase. So, imagine my surprise when the site did not recognize my confirmation number!
So, after about an hour of being on hold I reached a representative by phone who then informed me that electronically delivered products cannot be refunded. Yes, he was referring to the confirmation email!
I did get my money back after a strong warning never to let it happen again. I will never again buy online from Best Buy and now seriously considering other options for car stereo installation.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love geek squad
My sub works great and saved good amount of money going here compared to elsewhere. My tech also did a great job installing the sub volume control discreetly under the dash

A:AnswerI have had several installs at geek squad involving subwoofers and when they tune the amp they use their ears. Best buy does not provide them with an o-scope or specialized tuner. If your lucky, you can find a tech there that has their own o-scope or voltmeter to do the tuning, but I've only encountered that once with a tech that has a master certification and he was really into car audio. I don't know where he went but where I go to do installs he is no longer there. Subwoofer install covers putting sub in box, that's it. The amp install is the main thing and it can be from $70-$125 depending on type of amp.
A:Answeri had the same deal myne was a powered kicker enclosure. i only paid for the amp install. and materials. if you have all other applicable parts IE wires and the like. but i don't think they'd charge for a sub install too if it is part of the box.
A:AnswerHey there, Austin. Thanks for reaching out about this. It seems that you're reaching out about subwoofer or amp installations. I'd recommend either heading in or calling over to your local Best Buy and speaking to one of our Autotech specialists. They'll be able to get you estimates on price and ensure you have everything needed. I hope this helps! You can find information about your local store at www.bestbuy.com/storelocator.
A:AnswerI’ve tried randomly going to get work done and it’s hard because these guys are so busy. Better to call and schedule an appointment and let them know what work your are trying to do. From your question it will take 3-4 hours for amp, dual subs installation
A:AnswerIt would be $40 unless the tech is nice and does it for one but from my own experiences they will charge you for two. And I would look into just doing one box because two boxes will cancel each other out if facing one another.
A:AnswerHi there. Thanks for reaching out about this. As long as all of the parts are compatible together, that should be totally fine! If you'd like to just make sure, we'd recommend talking to your local Best Buy's Autotech installer. They'll be able to tell you if we'll run into issues.
