The content below is from first ever ‘actual’ Car Audio Advice Newsletter.
If you’re on my email list, you may have seen some emails from me in the past. But I wanted to start more of a newsletter style email with a better structure that’s more consistent. My plan is to eventually send a weekly newsletter that touches on different car audio tips & tricks, news, and more. If you want more car audio advice straight to your inbox, you can subscribe here. So here’s volume one:
Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Loud. Car audio is…
A lot of different things to a lot of different people. It has been all of these and more to me – starting with freeing. One of the first things I did to my first car back in high school was an aftermarket radio. Then a 12″ sub. Then those crappy little tweeters everyone used to have. Then all new speakers. The radio was installed by Circuit City. I think I just figured the tweeters out myself. My friend helped me “install” the sub and amp. I mean it worked, but we ran the power wire through the door jam and grounded it on some random bolt in the trunk. (Actually I don’t think it worked at first due to grounding issues haha. More on that here.) All of this was freeing to me because it related to the freedom of having my own car. I wasn’t stuck to my house or my parent’s schedule anymore. I was free to drive. And free to make my car my own (no matter how bad it was thinking back on it). As a young high schooler, my next goal was to make my car loud. So I swapped out the single 12 with two 12s. (And put a loud exhaust on the car.) As you can imagine, doing all of this myself as a teenager was pretty frustrating at times. But it was fun to learn how to do all of this myself. As I got older and more experienced, I started to learn just how misunderstood car audio is. There’s a ton of misinformation and myths floating around the internet about car audio. Some even comes from the manufacturers themselves. My goal with Car Audio Advice and this newsletter is to help you on your car audio journey with each of these topics and more. So that you can expand your knowledge and love for car audio like I have. Whether you’re a complete noob, master tech running your own shop, or somewhere inbetween, I’ll have something for you. What is car audio to you? Comment below and let me know. I’m curious about your thoughts.
I’m working on something pretty exciting that I was planning on selling for $297 (even though I feel it’s worth way more than that).
But I recently decided to just give it away for free.
I don’t have it ready quite yet, but stay tuned because it’s coming very soon.
I’ll leave it at that for this first issue. Not sure what the format of these newsletters will be quite yet. I’ll just go with the flow and see what happens. If you want me to cover anything, let me know.
