Where did you learn much of what you know about car audio? Forums, books, tearing apart your stock system?

I learned pre-internet from car audio & electronics magazine, and the woofer cookbook.

I eventually made it into CA&E, the woofer cookbook not so much.

Started here. The various forums have a TON of information. Also a lot out on the internet in general on electrical principles and how they apply in a car and things like that. Haven't read an actual book on the stuff. The rest was just experience from my own vehicle. Hoping to finally get to shows once I get back to the states!

google and youtube tutorials, then diving right in, and checking with you guys on here. car audio have come a long way, especially these last couple of years.
