Mark F's 2001 Dodge Neon

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

I custom made the subwoofer box with the spare tire removed to give it more air space. I mounted the components in the door and in the door pillar.

The speaker box.

Why did you choose these products?

They're all brand names that I could trust.

The speaker box; it was time consuming.
