    '65 Nova audio design

    Hey all, I am trying to layout a stereo for my 65 Chevy ii and I could use some feed back. My system will be simple but I'm struggling with what to go with. I will be doing 6.5" in custom kickpanels and glassed enclosures partially into the fenders...either coax or single source mounted comps along with a pair of 10's. I want to run a single amp and the subs in a small sealed enclosure. I was leaning toward the following but nothing is set yet..plan on doing more looking at sema this year.
    Fronts: Pioneer TS-D1602R
    Subs: Dayton Audio RSS265HO-4 10" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm or JL 10W3's
    Amp: Sundown Audio SAX-125.4

    I'm not sure the Sundown bridged channel is enough for the HO's and my heart isn't set on anything other than the sizing and layout. Thanks!

    Sorry...I dont have a great far away pics as most are up close of the mods/updates I have been doing:



    Bucket seats and a customer center console are waiting until the audio layout is complete so I only have to take her apart once.

    Re: '65 Nova audio design

    Thanks again for the compliments.
    Now what do you guys think on my amp/sub selections? I have been using ARC's on my last 3 installs and I love em but I have been using multi-amp setups. I have been having a hard time findings a good multi-channel that can drive my system no matter how simple I want it to be. I could go to a dual-amp setup but they would have to be tiny...the goal is "Retro-Mod" so I want it to have the old-school feel to it.

    Re: '65 Nova audio design

    Im gonna have 350-400 (i think in the head unit)...still waiting for it to be released...but I would like to stay under 1500 in components if I can. Basically 1100 for speakers and an amp. I already have the wiring, sound deadening, and am doing all the work myself (except for the vinyl work) so that is covered. My budget is flexible as I want the right stuff. I was originally thinking of trying to go all american made but I have been out of the audio circle for awhile. Finished my Mazdaspeed about 5 years ago so a lot of things changed.

    Check out the HAT Imagines. Stage II - Imagine - The Home of the World's Finest Loudspeakers, and World Championship Car Audio Speaker Systems.
    I have heard great things about these coaxial/convertible components.
    I don't think the SAX will be the amp for those subs as you will have only 400rms total to split between the 2 subs. You may want to re-think and use a mini amp for the front along with a D class sub amp since the class D are more efficient or maybe a 6 channel.
