Experienced PC guys needs Car Audio Primer
I've been building and modding computers for years, and my car will be my next project. However, I know very little about car audio. Specifically, I need somebody to point me to a good source that can answer some of my questions (printed or online). My goal is to set up a clean install, make it look as close to OEM as possible.
- Power: How to set up the power to go from the battery without killing myself or my new 'puter.
- Wiring: How to hide and deliver wires to all the necessary places.
- Upholstery and Trim: Basic knowledge on how to handle and remove if necessary.
- Line noise: No idea what causes it and how it can be avoided.
- Basic acoustics: How to make the sound better in a car.
So, I'm a complete newbie at car audio. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
