Post Basic Car Audio wiring guides & MUCH more!

Prepare to be educated

NOTE: This guy is a genius and VERY generous to stand up this web site but if you email him he has VERY specific rules on his home page for you to follow. Please don't abuse it because he has already been kind enough to put this up for us to consume and he will answer emails BUT only if you follow his rules. Please do so we can all have access to it. Lastly, he specifically mentioned NOT to email him about a topic that he has covered that you didn't read and he will NOT answer emails for enclosure design and speaker impedance for series/parallel speaker connections.

BCAE is great, definitely killed several hours reading it when I first ran across it.
