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.

Starting to feather out the 1/2" trupan onto the 1/8" masonite


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

Love that custom work!.....I have a question. Is it better to use a quality pair of 6x9 coaxial speakers in the package shelf, or round "seperates"....I will also be using a 8" or 10" ducted sub W in the rear.. THANKS, Eric:cheers

6x9 speakers are bigger than 6.5" round speakers, therefore giving them more cone area. In most cases more cone area will be louder/more midbass output. In a majority of the car audio systems I build, I use a strong front stage and less for rear speakers. Ideally, music should come from in front of you.

Whatever you choose to put back there, I'd highly recommend using a sound deadner and a pair of quality speakers.

Started making the trunk panels:





Unfortunatley the right side of the trunk is not symetrical to the left so I have to do a template for that side as well

Did some stuff yesterday:







Panels and trunk floor will be wrapped in tan carpet and there will be cutouts where the amps & license plate will be mounted painted to match the car with edge lit plexi around it.

Love what your doing to this goat! Particularly the rear interior deck. What size sub are you gonna run?

Look forward to seeing this out in CT... maybe you can help me upgrade my leman's sound system.
Aiming to be at the Calf Pasture show in Norwalk on the 28th. You going?
