Russell G's 1989 Dodge D-100
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.

I started with scratch. I installed several players, amps, speakers, etc.... then I found the right balance. I had the Rockford amp given to me, subs were a gift as well. The door speakers I bought myself along with the head unit. The only thing that I had to modify was the door speaker holes. I was determined not to return the 6x9's so I cut the holes in the doors bigger. The subs fit behind the seat in the cab (barely). A lot of time measuring was involved. The speaker box I built to be extremely strong. It is made with 3/4" MDF and the seams are held together with screws and West System Epoxy. I highly recommend this because it makes for the strongest, tightest sealed box. That's about it I guess. Thanks for looking!
