Jake A's 2001 Ford Supercab F-250

I started my Crutchfield career as a product advisor. I fielded thousands of customer questions about A/V equipment, designing systems for homes, cars, and the occasional party bus. Do that for eight years, and you begin to understand what people really want from their gear. You also get a lot of hands-on experience with the latest products. That's one of the coolest things about working here. As a writer, I enjoy 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 enjoy playing and teaching music. I'm always on the lookout for interesting left-handed guitars.

Installation Description


This was the first system I have ever installed. I was trying to find a decent system without paying to much. For the installation, I saved a lot of money thanks to Crutchfield. Their online videos showing how to install amps, subs, and door speakers helped a lot.
