New Audio system - 86 GT vert

Hey all:

Just wanted to share my ordeal with putting in a new sound system in my 1986 GT Convertible.

Added Music and seats pictures by poetnprophet - Photobucket

The main issue is that the rear speakers are behind a panel, under the carpet. The mount for them leaves no room for a large speaker.

What I did was cut the panel around the mount, added a 1" spacer, and top mounted it, them glued the carpet, cut the hole, and tucked it back in.

Overall I'm happy with the turn out, even though I messed up on the front door speakers (which, were not there originally....another ordeal). But, I can go a little bigger, so I will eventually, and it'll look much nicer.

Amp is hidden under the trunk compartment for the top, fits nicely.

Someday, I'd like to build a custom fiberglass enclosure for a sub that's ported into the cab, but for now this sounds pretty sweet.
