Default Who does this for a living?

Wondering how many of you do car audio for a living installer, owner whatever the case maybe. How do you like it any regrets? Better as a hobby than work?

I'm in college right now working on my AS in criminology and automotive certificates. I love car audio and everything about it but most people tell me keep going for the education and then there are the few who tell me to go for my passion. I don't want to get rich but i also don't want to work paycheck to paycheck either

just confused or maybe i like to hear myself talk

thought about doing the car audio thing. unfortunately i can close my eyes and spin around and throw a rock in any direction and hit a car audio place. so its not worth it to me. you gotta do what makes you happy. but sometime your surroundings arent working for you like mine are.

Don't do car audio as a career, you will hate it. It's decent at first but still not that great, and can only get worse.

I'm an installer and have been for 15+ yrs.
Only regret is being in such a small town.
With a population of about 3k, there isn't much to work with daily.
