I've loved music and electronics ever since I can remember. I learned how to solder wire and ride a bike around the same time. My dad had a strong electronics background from the Air Force. When he retired and bought a TV repair shop, I learned to help him fix televisions and stereos.

My first car had an eight track player that I blew up because I hooked it up to a set of really big home speakers. It sounded great for a couple of days.

Since then, I've helped customers with a number of interesting installations. I helped a customer with a 12-volt, all-solar home (off the grid) with a car stereo and speaker install. Also, a full CD receiver and CD changer in the trunk of a 1969 Camaro. This was a car he takes to shows which still has the original AM radio in the front. We installed rear 6x9's and a 10" sub. All controlled by a wired marine remote.

I helped my friend pre-wire his house for multi-zone audio in several rooms and outside. We installed all of the speaker wire before the drywall was installed. I have installed speaker wire and an IR repeater system in my own house. Two sets of outdoor speakers (Boston Voyager 4 & 5) with volume controls and the Insteon switches for lighting control are some of my latest additions. We have a good selection of other audio and video equipment (Love It!), such as two LCD televisions (Sony) and one Plasma (Panasonic) TV, an Onkyo TX-SR806 Home Theater Receiver, a Polk 300-watt subwoofer and an Onkyo stereo receiver with a pair of Klipsch RF-52 towers. Not to mention one of my personal favorites, a Sonos wireless music system. I have never had as much fun or enjoyed any job as much as Crutchfield!

So if you are an avid music listener, or want to tackle an unusual installation, give me a call. Chances are I've tried something like it myself!
