The other answer gave falls in the normal range - about $50/head - but depends on the number of zones, system pressure (how much area a head can cover), whether you are talking pop-up or fixed heads or a "rainbird" type long-reach head, etc - the higher-end broad-coverage heads can run more like $100-150 deach installed in quantity. Also, number of zones affects the fittings and controller cost - generally the fewer zones necessary to cover the area the cheaper per head, average. Also, need for pressure regulators (due to high incoming pressure or great downhill runs from the controller) or booster pump (due to low incoming pressure or great variation in elevation of system) can of course affect the cost as well - as can larger diameter pipe for long runs. and of course access to electrical and water supply of adequate supply capacity can affect your cost too - especially if you have to make a separate pipe run from the supply source or water meter due to long run or small service line sizing - rare for normal sized systems but does occur.

Another common measure is by square feet of coverage area - commonly around $1-2/SF for a small system, around $1/SF or commonly a bit less for normal residential 3-4 zone system, and down to $0.50/SF ballpark for larger systems or ones with high pressure available so it takes fewer heads to cover the same area. And of course, the more complex the area the more heads it takes to cover without overspray wastage.
