    11-12 years old I guess. I remember it too ... hooking up the speakers, amps, head unit, and equalizers for school plays and gatherings in grades 5/6/7 in good old elementary school. Those were the days.

    Wish I would have chosen something ... cheaper.

    Thats pretty funny.


    I was around 14 or 15 when I finally started helping and getting in my brothers way. I call it a "hobby" and I "collect" equipment, but my girlfriend calls it an obsession.

    Well I was about 13 when I heard my friends McIntosh HT setup, after cleaning out my pants I was hooked on audio in general. When I was 16 I heard some HX2 15's and left the car in serious pain, that sorta did it for me.

    14yrs old! I'm 20yrs old now.

    I can't stop. I tried doing other things, but I became addicted. I'm a Car Audio addict! I've collected numerous car audio accessories, then sold them to get bigger and better things!

    Re: How old where you when you got into car audio?

    i was 18. i hooked up some Pioneers and a nice tape deck (ugh i know!) to my old '72 Chevy Caprice (since laid to rest, RIP ol' girl...). i could turn it up pretty loud, and between this, my walkman, and my old stereo, i never had to stop listening to music for a second.

    here i am, 6 years later, and i finally decided to put a little more effort into making my car's audio sound as good as my home's. no lookin' back now!

    oh, and as far as hobbies go, my others are music-making (electronic/industrial), and knives (good ones, not that **** you see on HSN). between all three, my wife's about ready to throw my *** out!

    Re: How old where you when you got into car audio?

    I was about 15 years old. My first system I heard was my step-brother's. It was 2 Pyle Driver 10's in a sealed box with 150 RMS off a 4 channel MEI amp.

    I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Before that I though that car stereo's were stupid.

    I wanted a deck and speakers when I was 13ish, but I thought that the subs were dumb till I heard my step brother's.

    I bought my audio equipment before I had my first car . I live in Canada so I couldn't drive on my own till I was 16 years 8 months old, but on that exact day, I drove back from the test, called the insurance company and then bumped all the way to school with my system I already had installed

    Now I just spend all of my money on it. I just built a wall for my 2 RE HC 15's and I'm awaiting my amp to see how it all sounds. I can't wait.

    Re: How old where you when you got into car audio?

    **** you guys started driving early! Either you guys made some big bucks or had some rich *** parents...lol.

    but I always been involved with music - you could always see me with some headphones, dozens of walkmans/cd players and now 2 hdd mp3 players, different sets of speakers, and trying to learn more instruments that I had time to...I'm now down to 1 main one (drums) and 1 on the side (piano)...over the years

    so when I started driving...it was inevitable for me to get involved.

    Re: How old where you when you got into car audio?

    13 - basically caught on just because my bro was into it. He did an all out (by our standards) competition install when I was about 15. 4 early 90's optidrive amps, 4 Lanzar 10's, 12 other mids/tweets - completely stealth installation.

    From that point on I've never had a car without SOME kind of soundsystem in it - including my boat and my GF's Montero.

    When I was in Japan, I raced RC cars and spent well over $10k on that over the course of a few years. Sold a lot of the cars I didn't use to bankroll the new stereo (HU, Stinger Expert stuff, Batcap 800, my 3rd 225HCCA, etc...). I also wargame (Games Workshop is wicked expensive especially when you have over 3000 figures). I also have built a small machine shop in my garage (it was in the spare bedroom in our apartment in Japan which really pissed my wife off since my hobbies completely filled that room). I have purchased a bunch of new power tools since we bought our house in June (nowhere to put the stuff in Japan and I couldn't afford it over there anyway). I have my Harley as well (HD stands for "hundred dollars" cause everything for it costs at least a C-note). I missed hunting season this last year, but the dog will be put to work this coming winter though he doesn't know it yet. I think I am going to start fly-fishing this spring as well. I hate to be bored, in case you haven't figured it out!
