I have a '69 skylark vert. What do you guys recommend to get a decent setup inside (comp sets, horns, coaxs)?

Are the mids just gonna escape with the top down?

If there's no hope, then i'll just go for looks and fiberglass the the dash with coax's aimed at the windshield & glassed pods in the rear panels. There will be (4) 12"s in the trunk.

Here's the car

nice car. i'd go with 2 15's for the subs. for the love of christ don't fiberglass the dash. it won't be easy getting decent sound in a vert, but not impossible. ;)

sorry, i'm into higher custom so the dash will be glassed with a 10-15" monitor. I already decided on (4) 12"s after some testing/sketching. I'm just looking for opinions on the speaker options. As, far as wheels, i'm taking donations right now:D

what you know about that??.....Aye..aye..aye :D

i'd fit an 18/20 combo on them feet and drop that ho LOW.

no offense, but the thought of any kind of glass on a car made before '73 makes me well.....uh, i just threw up in my mouth a bit...:emb:

Just put some high power comps in the kick panels and lots of power.

x2, or if your willing to modify the doors, I would run a comp set with (2) mids and (1) tweeter per door like the Rainbow CMX 465s or something like that. You could run rear fill as well (like some Pioneer Revs), even though alot of people on here knock it, it will help with the output when the top is down.


BTW, very nice upgrade:thumbsup:, I see alot of potental in that car if its anything like the last one.

Awesome fiberglass work, but I gotta ask, after all that work why put $40 speakers in car (rear deck). Just for show?
