Credit score before system 678 after 613 :-X  :-X on credit. Wait and save.  29%apr :-X :-X :-X :-X Bad credit bad. Not before the system though 9.9%. The best thing is a saving account that takes out a % of your check. That way it's not missed too much.

x300  ii have 3 kids a wife and a girlfriend , and doing a system is extreamly hard on my bank account,and we cant forget the extreme cost of competitions and travel...but when it comes to stuff i need for my system i save my money, i dont go with the squirts up my butt and buy the cheaper stuff just so i can have it now, save up and get the better stuff so you dont want to change it out at a later time :^ :^ :^

some of us do this for a living, so coming across deals or build huge customer cars and getting to keep all their old equipment, then i sell it or trade it for 1 nice piece. sure i do pretty well for myself, but i would say alot of it comes from trading. think about this. Add up how much all you stuff is worth then what high end piece you could trade it all for.

Plus your only 17, hell i know most of the guys around here are at least 20-21, im 26 and alot of these peeps are ol' schoolers. we have been doing this for years. myself coming up on 12 years, meade's got me beat , so dont rush it, take your time.. the time you have right now needs to be used for researching what is good equipment. If you only do 1 thing i ever suggest, its this. read and read and read about car audio, take most of it with a grain of salt but when the time comes for you to buy some equipment you wont buy crap at the very least.
