Post Best YouTube Car Audio Install Channels

  • It's so cool to see so many folks improving their Camaro Gen6 audio setups.
  • While I went to an installer to do my audio upgrade, I watched a lot of YouTube vids before I did my upgrade to come up to speed on the latest tips and best practices.
  • Let's share our favorite YouTube car audio install channels here.

Thumbs up

Wow, yes, I like the 1975 Corvette he did, and the 700 watt 8" subwoofer in the dash for his Honda was really brave!

Chevrolet Corvette 1975 Coming Alive & Getting An Audio System - Micro Precision, Helix, Gladen, GZ

Why upfront subwoofer in a car?

Looks like an excellent system! Let us know how you like the Focals. I've been looking at that same set.

Sounds pretty cool. Please post up when you get it done. So you use the JL Fix 86 connected to the speaker outputs? I am very interested in how that sounds. JL makes some of my favorite stuff.

Thank you.

Hi, I came across this video about stereo upgrade costs. It made me feel better about dropping so much coin on my upgrade!

I will let you know. They are tuning the fix now. I believe they said the were connecting it with an optical link. They hope to have it done this afternoon. I should be able to go get it tomorrow sometime. I am excited to see how the processor performs. I had my old sub from back in the day connected with a lc2i and that line out sucked.

I was able to demo them in one of their installers car’s last summer. They sounded fantastic.
