Default Finally on board - 1990 eXemployee of Highway Audio in New Brunswick NJ

Hello guys,

Since the late 70's I've been an audio aficionado, enjoying listening to music, specially DISCO, and reading a lot about the emerging "boom box" scene.

By the mid 80's I was full into BMX, and also helped my DJ cousin in a lot of gigs, where I kept learning about audio electronics.

In 1987 I went to college and had a part time working as a Car Audio Installer in a shop very close to home. Back then I owned a 1972 Chevy Nova and custom made a center console to hold an Ammeter, Water Temp and Oil Pressure gauges, along with my newly acquired Kenwood KRC-858 HU. I also had to fabricate a custom rear deck to hold a pair of Sansui 6x9s. During that time I was exposed to many brands that included, Alpine, Audio Control, Boston Acoustics, Coustic, Blaupunkt, Clarion, MEI, Pioneer, JBL, JVC, Sanyo, HioFonics, etc.

In mid May 1990 I went to visit my cousin who lived in Edison NJ, and asked me to please help improve his audio system, so we drove to a few Car Audio shops, that included Highway Audio in New Brunswick NJ. That was a very NICE shop, carrying a lot of high end brands that included Soundstream, Nakamichi, Orion, PPI and Linear Power, among others. While there I saw a "Help Wanted" sign, so I asked for the job and instantly got it. I worked for them (Alan and Sal) until mid august, where I enjoyed it very much, learning more about custom fabrication and installation, including cell phone mobile installations.

I had to head back home, and from 1990 to 1992 worked part time as Car Audio Installer in a shop called Sound Experience.

December 1992 I got a Full Time position in Kenwood USA as Technical Coordinator. In early 1993 I had the opportunity to go for training at Kenwood's HQ, and a few months later went to a one week seminar sponsored by them and held in Dallas TX. There I had the opportunity to meet Richard Clark in person and learn about Zobel networks and saw a new product that they were developing that acted as a Zobel but for woofers of 10" or bigger. It was a "special" membrane that was installed in front of the woofer and helped maintain the excursion without reducing SPL and at the same time help maintain a stable impedance. For months I tried to read more about that product, but couldn't find anything.

1994 I was offered a higher paid FT position with Sony, and a few months later I was offered an even better opportunity to join Deloitte & Touche LLP as LAN Admin, partially moving away from the Car Audio scene.

Fast forward, just a few weeks ago I helped my friend by doing a custom low-budget install in his son's 1993 Nissan Pathfinder, using an economy Class D 5 channel Soundstream amp, Kenwood components, Lanzar 6x9 mid/woofers, Pioneer Coaxials and HU. The system sounded better than I anticipated, and since then I'm once again back to my roots, reading, searching and learning in a more active way, hoping we can exchange best practices, ideas and thoughts.

Thank you,

j
