My sister and brother-in-law both work at best buy corporate. 5% over cost in car audio equals about 50% off.

Yeah, but from all indications, Best buy stuff isn't great (if you're a big audio head)...

But it's incredible how much the discount is.

If I remember right, a friend of mine got 700 dollars worth of equipment for $200-300.
