Hey fellas, been in the retail biz for 7 years. I currently work for a custom shop in Mt. Airy NC. I am the lead installer/shop mgr. Ive always worked local and have a good amount of repeat customers. Never had any MECP training, just experience. I have been my current location for 4 years now, The Audio Video Spot. I have done quite a few custom jobs in the past few years. Recently had an installation featured in a mag, Road+Track Road Gear, check out the 350Z. Anyways, I currently dont have a stereo worth a crap in my ride, but thats all about to change, getting a new truck in the next couple of months, I'll post pics when I start.

Hey guys,

Well I'm by no means a professional, but, I'm studying for the MECP exam now. I installed my first radio at about 12 years old, and my first entire system (H/U, amps, speakers) before I could even drive legally. I do all my learning mostly on my own vehicles, and apply that knowledge to help frined and make a few exra bucks here and there. I have recently gotten into alarms/remote starts as well. I'm also going to college for civil engineering.

Uhmm, I'm new to this Forum but I'll introduce myself.

My name is Juddi and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I work at Fry's Electronics as a Car audio/video installation tech. I've been installing for 2 years now at Fry's. I got into the job because they needed installers and I was the next best qualified for the position since I went to school for automotive repair. I race cars for a hobby and I build them to race. I'm 22 y ears old... and uhmm.. what else... I dunno. Any question just ask I guess. :)

Hey, my name's Ben Cline. I'm 23. I go to school at Linn Tech. This is my first year in electronics, and at this school. I'm an EET major. I've installed about 30 head units for other people and just a few amps. I've probably had 12 stereos in my vehicles over the past 6 years, something like 8 in my Bronco, which I've had for a year. I really enjoy it. I do a bunch of electrical work for my friend in his vehicles. He's a DJ, but I know more about car stereos than he does. It's something I enjoy, but I'm trying to get more into other electronics.
I noticed how many newbies there are to electronics. I guess they gets larger every day, but I haven't noticed with being on the other forums I'm on. I have over 4,100 posts on TCCoA, I've got a few hundred on SoundIllusions.net and a couple others here and there. I got bored at TCCoA. Not much stuff to do over there, so I came over here again and figured I'd help a few of the newbies out here.
We're at the half-point in class, so we've already gone through most of the DC basics. Ohm's Law, Thorton, Wheat-stone bridge, relays. Starting on AC this week.
Current electrical things I'm working on:
Trying to fix fried amplifiers and CD players
Making my own LED underbody kits
Making my own wig-wags (I have several friends in the volunteer fire department that would appreciate this)
I just haven't gotten around to check out the last two things.
Nice to meet you. Hopefully I'll be doing some posting here and getting good grades in class. :D

I used to work at Installer Institute. Who runs this forum, I may know them.
I am a boring electrical engineer now.
I sure would love to open a reatil car audio store of 'my' own. Any investors out there? :)
