    classic bug audio build

    building my first car (1972 bug w/ early parts), with my first sound system. Gotta say this audio stuff is overwhelming but i am still learning. I bought my first amp today (kicker kx600.1) for $120 so i will be going based off of that. i got some pioneer subs but they are crap. ill be getting new stuff.
    My build so far
    Headunit: sony cdx gt565up
    componenets: none yet. i want kicker ds65.2 and ds68 ran off the headunit
    amp: kicker kx600.1
    subs: non yet, will be dual sundown e-10
    enclosure: 32x15x12 with 10.75x1.5 port.

    thats it so far. any advice is welcome, sorry for the large photos
    heres my car

    enclosure with crappy pioneer 10's

    shelf to cover the open areas. will be custom making sub grills.


    the amp i bought today

    nice amp, 1-ohm stable if a remember correctly, try find yourself a kx300.4 for your speakers (matches the kx600.1)

    would be ideal but i am still running an ancient generator in my bug. so i will run the components from the headunit untill my car can handle a second amp. simple alternator kit will do the trick

    also be worth checking those subs, pretty sure they are designed as a free-air sub (should still sound and work okay in a box)

    Re: classic bug audio build

    I have a kicker 68.2 2 way component sets that I am getting rid of good starter set with only two months use and still under warranty
    There is two 6x8, two tweeters, and two crossovers in original boxes and hardware
    As I said they sound good and make a great set to learn about components and positioning and using passive crossovers



    Coming soon
