This is our most popular tutorial video, it covers pretty much everything about building and installing an aftermarket amp and subwoofer. decibelcar.com/index...

There's some model specific installation guides here decibelcar.com/index... and if you need wiring instructions, you can find them here www.caraudiowiring.net

This is a pretty generic door card removal tutorial (good for installing door speakers): decibelcar.com/index...

Finally here's a good video for learning how to wire subwoofers: decibelcar.com/index...

That should be enough to get you started. If you only watch the first and last tutorial, you'll be well on your way to doing a good job installing in your buddies car

I had the same thought as you guys did. But i realized back in the day, that even though i technically knew(physically is another point al together) how to do as much if not more that my local Audio shop I still hanged around, helped out and did spend money there.Which i didnt have to do because i could get everything from some one else if i looked hard enough.

Anyway to make my point i believe the "Current shop" if it is to survive must some how encourage the sharing and learning of Knowledge, incorporating "subteam" systems that do not engage in the running of the shop but become the "Forum" platform which generates enthusiasm. This enthusiasm will show to the countless shop hoppers looking for the "cheapest price". Its the only way to hook these countless people to come back. Some how they feel it and recognize it as genuine intelligence.
Back in AUS when i was was apart of the subteam associated with a shop i came into the shop on certain times and was willing to sell gear to people if there was a chance for me to do it.And i did :)

heh, I've told Mike to start selling coffee to the "hang out crowd". Itd be far more convenient for me for instance :P

Anyways back ontopic.. does OP have specific questions ?

Hello
WOW you guys really like to talk.Now i think i will go into a car audio shop and ask a few questions.
I don't have any specific questions.
I have been into big shops with Audio in a certain area,but i guess you guys are talking about CAR Audio shops only?

Big Box are places like Walmart or Best Buy who sell everything. Car audio shops just do car stuff, usually interior work and custom work can be done there too

Car audio specialty shops also carry better brands, do better quality work, and know a lot more about audio than big box stores.

Plus, the guys that work in specialty stores are normaly right into car audio themselfes. That is always a good thing!
