    New Guy here from Greater Chicago land Area

    Already posted a few times, But I am still new here as of this week. Just recently got into the world of car audio, because I am planning on installing my very first owned system (I have put it so many systems for friends its crazy). With my previous installs, I was often told to cut corners to save time doing things such as running power wires through fenders into cabins, leaving signal and RCA wires hanging everywhere and such. Just so they can have a sub setup in 20 minutes. Well, This will not be the case with my install. I will be removing seats, carpeting on floor and door panels in order to deaden the cabin as well as the trunk. I also plan on running 4 true to gauge ofc copper through the firewall with a grommet and running it along the passenger side to the trunk, and RCAs and REM wire on driver side, as to avoid electrical noise. Anyways, back to introductions.

    I love cars and I love German cars even better. Coming from a family who has often preferred German brands such as Mercedes and Mercedes AMG, Audi, Volkswagen and a loaner BMW (lmao), I just love how the Germans do things with cars . I currently drive a 2003 Mercedes Benz E55 AMG, and plan on downgrading to a 1988 Mercedes Benz 190E, for daily driving, because the cost per mile versus the two is worlds apart, esp for daily drivers.

    I am also heavily into audio and music. Not so much car audio, but live sound. I myself play a little bit of the drums, along with my dad. He has a band that hosts shows and gigs all over Illinois, and has a great sound setup to go with it, Ill see if I can find some pictures, because it is too much to list. Anyways, I look forward getting into mobile audio and to one day have a system worthy of posting here. (made up of pyle auido. hahahaha JK JK JK!!)


    Found some pictures that will have to do. some pictures of it all really. best I could find for now.





    BTW, These headphones are absolute *** to the ear canal, look em up if you like some nice in ear head phones.






    Giant board, but still sounds surprisingly good for its age.

    And a lot of people ask so I will let you know before hand, this is a Roland TD 20K drumset, and the speakers in the background are Yorkville Unity U-15p's on top (2000 watt powered loudspeaker with three 5" mid range drivers, and a single 15" woofer) and on the bottom are LS800P Elite powered subwoofers, Each housing a single 18" sub and 2500 watt amps, nicknamed "earth movers" for a good reason. Max SPL of 140 DBs each.

    Enjoy!

    Re: New Guy here from Greater Chicago land Area

    I'm new here also. I am originally from the Chicago area but I live in Madison WI now. I also love German cars. I bought a VW GLI (2012) as my current driver but I've had a jetta previous (VR6) and a BMW X5 all manual transmissions. I almost always put in new audio systems but so far I have not changed my car audio system as the Fender audio system is ok (but not great). I'm thinking about how to change it now. I've got some Morel speakers from my previous install but I'm not sure yet what fits.
