first (in car system) system was a .. sony xplod cassete deck (yes i rocked cassete )until my aunt from foreign sent me a sony discman with cassete adapter an a pyrimid 300w amp and 2 6x9 reconed pioneer and 2 foreign used clarion 30wrms speakers..
then i added a pyrimid pbx800 with the 2 vu meter style lights coupled with 2 10" soundbarrier

i see casper talkin bout get robbed... but i get robbed in my early days of music eh .. i reallly feel shame to tell pple .. i once bought that same pyrimid amp for $600ttd .. 300wrms and i paying dat ..plus i connect an eq direct to the low level inputs and blow the input ic and a technician name maharaj charge me $400 to fix it .. an 2 weeks later it burn again .. jan from intense audio was my grandfather neighbour back then he took it and fixed it for $40 and installed it for another $20 .. since then i stuck by him an leant everything i know thanks to that man.. which is why i tell pple i owe him more than he will ever know

did alot of car audio with 12v adaptor in house sets BUT MY 1st CAR system ....well i only have my AD wagon almost 5yrs now (my 1st & only car)...stock front door speakers & radio - damn thing dont even come with a cd player . Sounded like rel toots

then about 6mths after my bro sent from d usa a JVC deck with mp3 & remote ...it made my crappy stock speakers sound 100% better ....after about a mth i decided i want some bass so i borrowed for a lil while my bro's power acoustik 2 chan amp (cant remember d series but it was pure white) ...had a ol pair of BLAST KING 200wmax 8ohms 12" speakers , built a pair of 3" pvc ported boxes to put it in & that was quite decent .... that was my 1st real car audio set ..... :fadein:

a pair of sound barrier 8" and 2 "pizo" tweeters off a sound barrier deck and
a kinda amp i cyar even remember, all i know it had something like phone cord attaching the controls to the amp and it had midrange, bass, highs and something else i think
that was in my parents charmant in form 1 i think

nah....

added an additional Matts mono...then changed that to a JL mono

I was supposed to do a full Image Dynamics / US Amps system so I sold all amps. Still haven't gotten around to doing it. Going with 2 12" this time.

Right now I just have the Head Unit and the components being driven by a Power Acoustic amp.

I know...laugh, laugh,

Serious step down. But as soon as I finish my house I'm going carry out that plan.
