Kyle H's 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE1

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.

Installation Description

My installation process has been trial and error. Still learning the in and outs of it all. i love it though, all the wires even learning what they all mean. Drilling running the wires. Breaking things on my car. It was worth it though. Installation was pretty simple after it was all said and done.
