    Re: Back to car audio after a 15 year hiatus....

    Ok, no picture link in a first post and no editing tools? Well, here is what the post said...
    Hello from Destin, Florida. I was involved in car audio from about 1980 with my first aftermarket system, a Panasonic Cockpit in my '65 Mustang with 6x9's in the back. I worked for a few years during college as an installer, mainly building subwoofer boxes, fabrication work with fiberglass, aluminum, and custom wood door panels in luxury cars.

    I installed my last system in my own car about 15 years ago. Man, have things changed! I was a huge fan of A/D/S, MB Quart, and Boston speakers, Soundstream Reference and Audio Control System 90 amps, and Nakamichi head units. Now I hear A/D/S is gone, and AudioControl doesn't make amps any more. Friends tell me MB Quart and Soundstream are not what they used to be?

    I guess I'm glad I kept most of my last Audio Control stuff and a couple Reference 405's, because the amp in my 07 Jeep JKU is going out and I have the bug to do a complete old school install. Only this set up has to be water resistant and stealth.
    I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions.....

    Dave

    welcome again, a lot has changed but the basic concept still holds true, prices has dropped a lot too and a lot of new companies emerged which some are decent and some are a flop,

    water proof ay? i have no idea how it was back in the day but there are loads of equipment that are made to get wet (marine equipment)

    non of it is super high end but you can get a pretty good and clean set up id look into polk audio's marine equipment (im sure you will get other suggestions on this!)

    The system I am planning right now is for my Jeep Wrangler. I keep the top off most of the time. The front speakers don't need to be water resistant as much. The subs will need to be. The components will be in a pretty waterproof box under the rear seat. Subs are going to be under the front seats. The sub's will have the best chance of seeing water.
