These are various sites I find interesting or useful and may or may not be referenced elsewhere in the site. Most links are accompanied by a brief description. The links to HTML and Web related articles were moved into the Webhelp section. These pages seem to have mostly went out of style on the web so I don't know how long this page will stay here but more it takes more effort to remove it than leave it here for now :-)

Car Audio

Back in 1994 when I got my first car; car audio was a serious hobby for me. Back then, you could compete (and do well) with a decent car and $2000 in equipment. The national organizations were just forming and car audio was either about the audio system sounding good or sounding loud. Now it takes a dedicated vehicle and very large budgets to modify the engine, video, navigation, game consoles, and all sorts of 'extra point' stuff.

All that stuff is neat, but car audio doesn't appeal to me anymore. Don't get me wrong, one of the first things I did with my 2003 Ranger was install a modest system (back in 1994 I could've probably done pretty well in IASCA with it;-). But the whole car audio industry grew up and if you pay a qualified person and make the investment you have a quality sound system; the competitions are about the extra stuff you add on that has little or nothing to do with the sound.

Crutchfield sells these brands and many more. They are also a good source of information on car audio in general, especially for the beginner. Their service is excellent (and I'm not getting any commission for saying that). Or try Car Audio and Video at
