Brandon M's 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T
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 installation was pretty much straight forward. I had already decided how I was going to run the wires and how I was gonna wire it up and all. I mean it's not hard but it is a time consuming process and Crutchfield took that extra step to just simplify the process.
Why did you decide to upgrade your A/V system?
Because Im an audiophile and I love being able to feel like im at their concert
What's the first thing you show people about your installation?
Well I like to show off my subs and tell them that I wired the whole system up so I guess the cleanliness and subs
Why did you choose these products?
I chose the products that I did because I wanted the top of the line products and one brand just couldn't specialize in all areas
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
The most difficult part was trying to run wires and make the installiation look as clean as possible
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
Well I plan on putting some 20" gianna's, putting coilovers and lowering it 2 inches, buying 2 more stronger amps to push my subs and alpine speakers, and possible turboing my engine.
