Brandon M's 2001 Dodge Stratus RT
Joshua honed his knowledge of home audio/video gear during an 8-year stint as a Crutchfield Advisor. He can talk tech with the best of them, but he lives for the emotional experience of music. He brings that outlook to his writing, and to his side gigs as a folk guitar player and music teacher. He stays active by chopping firewood and exploring our national parks.

It is a time consuming process and is very expensive, but it is well worth it. You just start by doing a little at a time. Start with a headunit and then put aftermarket speakers in. Next thing you know is that you have a 6,700 watt system haha.
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
I decided to upgrade my system because I cannot handle having stock sound I have to have something loud with really good quality.
What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
I like to show them everything I did and how clean it looks.
Why did you choose these products?
I chose these products because I did a little research on them and they were getting good reviews and the specs on them looked good.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
The most difficult part I would say is deciding where to place everything and how I am going to run the wires.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
I am trying to upgrade my system to get something a little louder and maybe a small turbo.
