    Car Audio and You - Useful Info/Links

    We've got a new site, I figured it's a good start to start posting useful/general info for everyone re: car audio

    General
    Basic Car Audio Electronics
    Basic info to start you off in the car audio world, more advanced info for the audiophile.
    From the website
    Overview:
    This site will help you to understand basic electronics and some electronic devices. It will, of course, also touch on car audio acoustics and car audio equipment. To make the lessons as painless as possible, you'll find hundreds of diagrams and pictures, .wav files and more than 50 javascript calculators on the 125+ individual web pages. If you make even a modest effort, you'll learn more about car audio electronics than you ever thought possible.

    Comparisons of different sound deadeners and how effective they are


    The 12 Volt
    From the website
    Free Vehicle Wiring, Relay Diagrams, and Technical Information for Mobile Electronics Installers, Enthusiasts, and Do-It-Yourselfers
    Recommended Power and Ground Cable Sizes



    Other

    Logs of SUNTHR's excellent build of his car stereo covering many topics

    Simple, cheap, and effective door treatments
    From the website
    Here's a list of some easy and affordable door treatments that I've found to greatly improve the clarity, as well as the total bass output and low end extension of your mid/bass. If you're using high quality drivers in the doors, proper treatment and install is a must.

    Fiberglass Forums
    Interested in doing your own fiberglass? This is the place to soak up info


    Installer.com - CARS - submitted by reallyxxxxxxloud
    "Complete listings of kits/adaptors/harnesses anything and everything car specific to what you might need to get the job done."

    Talk Audio Forums - submitted by reallyxxxxxxloud
    CarAudio.com Forums - submitted by reallyxxxxxxloud
    "Car Audio Forums of mass information!!! I'd look at these two."


    These are just a few of the places that I have bookmarked, I'll be adding more and more links down the road. If anyone has any more useful links (which I'm sure you do), please feel free to post them here or PM me so I can add them to the first post.
