View Full Version : 67' Camaro resto-mod stereo build

02-17-2014, 09:50 PM
I've finally gotten to the point in my Camaro restoration to begin the sound system install. The goals I'm shooting for are: keeping a period correct look, adding modern features (USB & aux inputs, Bluetooth,), adding plenty of power, sound quality and trying to stay south of 1500$.

Head unit:
Retrosound Model 2. Quite possibly the biggest advance in old school "period correct" head units ever

Sundown 100.4 & 1200.1
Fi Q 12" loaded w/modified spiders for 800 watts.

Front stage:
Screamin' Performance kickpanels w/ close out cans
Image Dynamics CXS64 v.2

Power supply:
120 amp single wire alternator, trunk mounted Deka AGM 775 cca battery, Tspec fuse/distribution block, 1/0 DLO cable to supply the block, 4 gauge to the 1200.1 and 8 gauge to the 100.4. Welded ground block w/brass hardware

This is the largest stereo install I've done to date... Opinions and critiques are welcome.

So far, I've only installed the head unit and the driver side cross over (fits nicely in the hinge space). The ID 6.5 woofers will need a spacer (on order) to clear the close out can.

After a busy few months, I finally got the amps and sub-woofer installed. I made a box from 3/4" MDF to 1.2 cubes (after speaker displacement), used a 1/4 round-over bit to curve the edges, and sprayed it with Raptor liner.

This system sounds incredible compared to my previous head unit and ages old 6x9's in the package tray.

Next up, because the amps are so far back in the trunk they can't really be seen from the outside, I'm going to build a complete cover over the amplifiers and wiring; much like a false wall. I'm thinking about fabbing it out of 14 gauge sheet metal and spraying it black with some Imron DTM.
