    New to the site, to the world of car audio, not so much.

    Hey guys (and girls) hope all is well. I've ran across this forum a few times in the past, not sure why I'm just now signing up. Oh well, anyway. For those who aren't familiar with me, I'm Chase and I live in Jasper, Alabama. My username is the same as my youtube channel and I've had some of what I'd say were decent setups in the past year and a half, but I always seem to find myself wanting more. I teamed up with James Taylor (Owner of HVCA out of Birmingham) and have been fortunate enough to allow him to work with me on the past, present, and future builds that I have going on in my vehicles. I'll try to post up some vids of my systems (past and present) shortly.

    CQ

    No, sadly no schooling from me. Guess I could have worded my introduction post a little bit better.

    Yeah, that was my friend Travis. He had 4 Powerbass 2XL 12"s in a blow through on 2 ASA1500.1s, decent high 140s on music system, never could break a 150 at shows though. He traded the truck off around November of last year and it's still around here with like 2 duals, a pioneer, and a sony in the box.

    Yeah, well, you know how some people are.. Hell I got into audio when I was 17 and over the past 4 years it's just been an adventure I wouldn't trade for anything what I've learned/continue to learn and the people I've met/continue to meet.. I don't claim to be an expert on anything (although I can look like one with some of the people locally..)
