    Noob trying to learn more.

    So this is the 2nd car audio forum I have signed up for. Im still very new to car audio, I only understand the basics so far. My first system was in my 94 toyota corolla which I just sold. It had a clarion headunit and all the factory speakers replaced with clarion 4inch speakers running off the deck. I later added a 12 inch pioneer sub with an alpine amp. That was good for about 250 watts rms. Total for that system, 290$. Pretty cheap. I'm now in the market for a new car and looking to step up my game a little. I'd like to get some amped components and a sub that can actually play some lows. I'm in between going to a shop and doing it myself though. I dont feel comfortable placing a ground, tuning the amp, wiring the door speakers etc. just yet. Hopefully I can find someone in my area to help. I'm 20 btw so with school and stuff this is just a hobby.

    Re: Noob trying to learn more.

    welcome!

    i promise u can do everything yourself with the help of us(forums). dont use the shop unless u just have the cash laying around or if u have something wrong and none of us can help u fix or figure out.

    btw if u post for gear help, post a budget for the item(s) and u will get lists flowing in of suggestions lol

    I'm a noob too, but I just finished the system in my 98 Corolla (Prizm actually). Take your time and do your research before you start.

    Re: Noob trying to learn more.

    Thanks for welcomes guys!
    I'm still in the market for a new car so once I get it I'll know exactly what I need to get. (speakers size, 2 or 4 door, how much room I can work with etc.)
    I have a setup in mind and once I do some more research I'll def post it up and ask you all for suggestions/improvements.

    Yeah, as a college kid I'd like to save as much as I can and do it my self. I'm actually leaning towards a dual amp setup since I have a 2 channel left from my old setup which I'd run components on. That I'll prob have the most trouble with.
    Thanks again guys!

    check out the classifieds, everyone here's got something to sell so they can pick up new gear. Good way to keep your budget together

    Re: Noob trying to learn more.

    haha yeah dual as in 2 amps. 1 for mids/highs and 1 for sub.

    Questions: When I try to post in the general section it tells me my post needs to be reviewed by moderators. Do I just need to wait or is there a number of posts I need for that not to happen?
