John M's 2003 Hyundai Accent

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


    The car was free, so I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in making it a more enjoyable ride. Being a 19 year old full-time student with a part-time computer tech job there's not much else I need to spend money on. I know it's not much compared to others. However, I feel it's a good start for me and I look forward to once I graduate and am making bank. I'll be sure to put this set-up to shame with my next car.
