Hey everyone,

 

I'm 26, live in Ohio, work in law enforcement.

 

New to car audio. Hoping to pick up some tips and tricks on things and learn a bit from people more experienced in this sort of thing. Right now trying to figure out how to turn my Trailblazer into a mobile soundwagon. Any advice is appreciated!

Welcome, and someone told me this hobby is a $ pit when I first started, and how true that was. what are your goals? And what kind of budget are u on? You may want to look at the stickies and read up on some things.

Eventually I'd like to have something epic. Budget is hard to put a specific number on, due to the fact that it's going to be coming in sections. A few hundred bucks here and there for different things. Wanting to start off with speakers, then receiver, then work on subs/amps/etc. And space is totally not an issue. I've got a 2003 Trailblazer EXT LT.

 

My thoughts are, if I don't skimp on the speakers, then that's one thing I don't have to worry about having to upgrade. Same with the cables. The amp/subs/etc. can all be somewhat easily upgraded and swapped out, so I'm okay with starting out kinda "average" with those.

 

Am I correct on all that?

Bit of a haul from where I am, If you dont mind the drive and prefer not to have a box shipped I am getting into making boxes for subs. I have been quite successful in the past, just something to keep in mind possibly.

Appreciate the offer, but I actually love doing woodwork. Plus, since this is one of those "first-time" things, I really wanna try to do it all on my own...every step of the way. I'll definitely keep it in mind though in case I run into problems along the way or just don't have the time to build it custom on my own.

 

Also, thanks for you service.

No problem man, I really enjoy this stuff so dont hesitate to ask questions... I tend to not bash guys that are new to this as well ;)

Yeah, I like to dive in headfirst. I'm one of those people who has to learn from doing something hands-on, but advice and tips are always welcome. I may end up running some dimensions past you regarding the box. I'm going to go out and get measurements of my cargo area tomorrow that way I know exactly what I'm working with.

 

I'm really not planning to start installing anything for a good month or so, this is simply the planning phase. I like to have things well-planned and organized. I started a build log so I'll upload some pictures and dimensions to it tomorrow. Feel free to follow along with it.
