Hi Xenia, nice to have you on board too. Are you both involved in electronics?

Well, not really.... Yes my intrest lies with audio, to be more specific: good sound. But I to be honest my knowledge of electronics is nihil, so that's Isabelle her deal of it.

My electronics knowledge is also very limited, I know basic electricity and I know what a coil or a cap does with AC signals, but that's as far as it gets.

As long as you like good sound and know someone who can deliver the goods, then you're doing fine. Glad to have you both on board.

It'll be nice to just be able to put a nice active set together one day... putting an RTA together and using your ears is simpler than having to deal with electric/electronics laws that go over the top of my head

Hello - and welcome to the forums at diyAudio

Perhaps you will find this link useful Basic Car Audio Electronics

BTW - my standard warning to new audioholics - get out while you are still sane, have friends that "have a life", and still have some money left in your bank account!!! Hanging around here will get rid of most of those things and you will wind up hanging out with other deprived audio nuts listening to music until the wee hours of the morning - and still wondering if you can make the cross-overs in your speakers "juuuuuuust a little better".

Hi,

While electronics, such as diy amplifiers or passive x-overs are something I don't have any experience with, I am not new to DIY Audio.
I started to get seriously interested in car audio somewhere in 2003 and in 2004, I had a fully active mobile audio installation with Focal midwoofers, Dynaudio tweeters, a Cerwin Vega subwoofer, Kenwood (later Steg, which was a bad decision) amps and an Alto Mobile UCS Pro.

The last 2 years, a lot of things changed in my life, so my priorities were somewhere else, but we do have some nice gear laying around to put in our current car again (Genesis and Clarion amplifiers, a Clarion HX-D2 headunit/dsp, some AudioControl stuff, CSS Trio8's, TangBand W4-1337's, Dayton ND20 tweeters) and even some more stuff to build a nice home-audio install (HiVi M8a's, TangBand W4-1337's, Fountek NeoCD1.0's, Peerless XXLS subs and passive radiators...).

About spending way too much time and money on improving the sound of a system just a little bit: I've been there and done that, but that's something I'll try to keep under control in the future. I'm pretty sure the stuff we have laying around right now will deliver a beautiful sound once the planned projects are finished and tuned in. I will try to resist the temptation of replacing some small part of the system by something much more expensive to get the sound just a little better. :-)

Isabelle
