    Where'd you learn what you know about car audio?

    Where did you learn much of what you know about car audio? Forums, books, tearing apart your stock system?

    Re: Where'd you learn what you know about car audio?

    I learned pre-internet from car audio & electronics magazine, and the woofer cookbook.

    I eventually made it into CA&E, the woofer cookbook not so much.

    Re: Where'd you learn what you know about car audio?

    Started here. The various forums have a TON of information. Also a lot out on the internet in general on electrical principles and how they apply in a car and things like that. Haven't read an actual book on the stuff. The rest was just experience from my own vehicle. Hoping to finally get to shows once I get back to the states!

    Magazines, trial and error.......but that was before the interweb. Back when people didn't expect handouts.
