Alice C's 2004 Toyota Matrix
My love for all things audio started back in the '90s when I built my first subwoofer enclosure. After joining Crutchfield in 2007, I spent seven years as a product advisor, designing A/V systems for homes, cars, and the occasional party bus. These days I specialize in home speakers and distributed audio systems, focusing on translating technical jargon into easy-to-understand language. My goal is to make shopping for speakers and amplifiers simple. After all, this stuff is supposed to be fun! Outside of work, I'm a hobbyist photographer and enjoy visiting our national parks.

The only things I did differently from the default instructions given were on the plastic mounting frame I punched off the extra bracket holes on the left so I could fit the Matrix's main panel back on.
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
My Matrix will last me for plenty more years but I wanted Bluetooth to make my car more gadget friendly.
Why did you choose these products?
Sony has always been good to me as far as anything audio.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
The wires. I've done wiring before, but I don't do it enough to do it fast or very well.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
Speakers and a mount for my gadgets.
