    65 Pontiac GTO Hybrid Audio/Kenwood Install

    This build is for my father. He recently had his GTO repainted and decided to redo his interior as well. He asked me what I could do to give him better sound than what was currently in there. He is not looking for anything crazy in there as he'd rather listen to the engine. Here is what we will be using:

    Kenwood KDC-X395
    Kenwood KAC 1502s & 2404s
    Hybrid Audio Imagine 5.25's & 6.5's
    Hybrid Audio I6SW
    Knukonceptz Wiring
    RAAM Audio Sound Damping

    The car:


    Start of the kick panels


    Start of the rear deck:




    A little filler on the kicks, still need a bit of help

    Got some more deadener laid down:


    Rear deck. Center cut open for sub to vent into cabin. Whoever cut the 6x9 holes used a beaver.

    Not very often do you see somebody with the balls to cut up a classic car. I took major crap when I put a full system into my 64 Rambler 440. The people in "Goodguys" just didn't get the joke. The front mount subs in my 72 Chev PU were much more stealth,so much less crap was received. Good on you and your dad.

    There is nothing wrong with cutting a car. It just **** better look and function nicer than stock

    The passenger side kick is a royal pain in the ***. Best way to be sure it gets smoothed out? Give it to your buddy who is a body man.

    Re: 65 Pontiac GTO Hybrid Audio/Kenwood Install

    Nice, in my 66 GTO I just bought a set of kickpanels that were ready for speakers. I had to find the slimist comps I could find thou. Found a used pair of Kicker KS650's that fit and just cut a hole for the tweet. I didn't want to mess with cutting into the rear deck so made a Tline and mounted the box below the rear deck in the trunk. Still waiting for my amp rack to be built.



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Thanks man I know you been following my builds for quite sometime now. I try to do work as it should be, very clean. Makes me sick to see half assed installs.
