My name is Max I am 26 years old and I live in Northern California (hence my name). Over the last 6 years of my life I have fallen in love with car audio. My first build I speced myself with a power accoustic mofo and a "3000" watt amp, a kenwood 4 channel, 2 sets infinity kappa components and crappy 6 gauge wiring. What a disaster that was!
I quickly learned about all the ins and outs of car audio and became the go to guy for all my friends' installs. My current build is much better but I am still working on it. I love doing installs myself and I love learning about car audio. I consider myself fairly well versed and my installs have gotten much better but I still have much more to learn.
My current build is as follows:
1994 accord wagon
big 3 upgrade
Image Dynamics ID 6.5 components in front door
Image Dynamics ID 6.5 coaxs in rear doors
Image Dynamics IDMAX 15 in sealed box
Rockford Fosgate RF 1200.1d
Pioneer DEH-6900bt head unit
Sound deadner in doors and hatchback door
1/0 Gauge Power and Ground
12 Gauge ofc speaker wire
I have a voltage meter on the way along with parts to create a ELD bypass switch
looking to do a H.O. Alt soon
I also would like to get some better amps, some XS series speakers and have a custom ported box built.
I plan on doing all the work myself as I have done all the rest of the work on the car by myself.
The more I get into car audio the more I find I enjoy sound quality vs spl.
I hope to eventually compete in SQ comps one day but I enjoy just driving around with my friends listening to music just as much.
I listen to Rock, Pop, EDM, Rap, and R&B.
I want to be a member of this forum to gain knowledge, be able to buy and sell used gear and meet other members of the car audio community.
I look forward to meeting new people and sharing and acquiring knowledge.
