Joshua N's 1997 Nissan Sentra

I've been with Crutchfield since 1999, where I began as one our advisors, helping our customers choose new gear. After a couple of years, I moved to the writing team where I spent a decade researching new products and getting hands on with car stereos, amplifiers, speakers, and subs. Yeah, I've been doing this for a while.

For the past few years, I've been the managing editor of Crutchfield's Car A/V web article content. I couldn't ask for a better job — we get to play with car audio gear every day! I'm a Virginia native from the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Outside of work, I love listening to music, playing board games, and installing new audio systems for my friends.

Q&A Section

Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?


What's the first thing you show people about your installation?

How awesome it sounds.

Why did you choose these products?

I love the sound of the Kenwood decks. I love the power that the BOSS amps put out and they never cut out. What I love the most is my Infinity subs — never ever have had a prob with Infinity.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?

Fitting the box in my trunk and trying to do all this stuff while working and taking care of my wonderful kids.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?

Someday I would like to have two 12" JL Audio Subs when I can aford $600 a pop :) And an awesome in-dash GPS/DVD/Bluetooh Deck

    Capacitors are useless, just a bandaid on somethin that needs stitches. Do electrical right and do Big 3, alternator upgrade and batteries. But seems how that boss 2500 amp does a max of 400 watts capacitor is still useless and those subs are not even seein rms rating.
