Default What did I stumble unpon?

Wow! I'm really impressed. I've read several threads in the forums and all I can say, is that it feels like I'm reading in a different language.

My first experience with audio was doing a hack job with an old school mtx 250 amp and a 12 pioneer sub when I was 12 and my 2nd experience was yesterday doing my first "professional" install with an ample audio amp and 4 infinity 6832. (I'm 25 now)

While the knowledge I've gained over the last few weeks has been about trouble shooting installs and setting up car audio, I want to go deeper!!! I want to take that beast of an amp someone has thrown out and make her push out the wattage she has never before. lol. What I'm saying is that I want to learn more about the internals of car ampilfers, trouble shoot, repair, test and keep them alive. This is mainily in the interest of u.s.a amps but I'm willing to go out to the ones made in china today.

Links, tutorials, books (ISDN) are appreciated. I have zero experience

Hi ekun
Perry Babins tutorial site would be a good place to start.
Enjoy the journey.

If you are serious about learning to troubleshoot electronics at the component level, then I suggest that you look in to taking an electeonics technician training program at some local trade school. They probably offer a one to two year long evening program that teaches everything you would need to know in practice to become employable in the field. So, if the idea of working on electronics at the transistor, resistor, IC type level appeals to you but, you have no desire to earn a four year engineering degree then an associate degree, or even a technical certificate, may be right for you.
