Russell G's 1989 Dodge D-100
I started my Crutchfield career as a product advisor. I fielded thousands of customer questions about A/V equipment, designing systems for homes, cars, and the occasional party bus. Do that for eight years, and you begin to understand what people really want from their gear. You also get a lot of hands-on experience with the latest products. That's one of the coolest things about working here. As a writer, I enjoy 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 enjoy playing and teaching music. I'm always on the lookout for interesting left-handed guitars.

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!
