    Help me build my 1960 cadillac system

    I am buying a 1960 Cadillac 4-dr sedan and would like to install a mild system without bastardizing the original interior. There is already an aftermarket stereo installed inside the glove box. Lets assume I will use that head unit (no video) and I have a budget of $3000. I think for the front speaker application custom kick panels would be a good choice. For the rear speakers, I will probably remove the original rear deck and replace it with a custom deck and mount my speakers to that. It has been a long time since I have shopped for speakers. Are 6x9's still a good choice for the rear? I think my biggest need for help is in the subwoofer selection. I like a tight jazzy sound for alternative rock, classic rock, country, but with enough bottom end for reggae music. What is a good mid-grade amplifier(s) I could use for this system. Gel Cell... Capacitor... What do you think? And finally, who does good but reasonable installs in the east Los Angeles county area.

    Thanks for getting me started.

    Re: Help me build my 1960 cadillac system

    For $3k you can get alot, how valuable is your trunk space to you?

    Id get some Hertz HSK165 (6.5 components for the front)
    HCX 690 (6x9s for the rears)
    Bridge a Sundown 100.4 for your fronts and get a Sundown 100.2 for your rears
    You could do like 2 FI BL 12s in a Ported Box around 32hz
    2 Sundown 1500d's linked for 3000w rms @ 2 ohms

    That should be within your budget

    Of course your need some 0/1 wire, rca cables, and time
