That'll work. Music is a personal taste. What you listen to, should sound good. Popular "sound quality" songs on the forums for tuning: Dire Straits, Money for Nothing. Toto - Rosanna. I think Tool makes any system sound good. Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb.

Sounds like we have similar music tastes, .

Re: 69 Burb speaker/amp/sub suggestions needed

I like just about any music genre/era, but mostly listen to rock, metal, alternative. Honestly, I don't care for Toto, it has never been played on my stereo. I'm going to have to play it to see what all the hype is about. All TOOL albums sound good. A few more of my SQ fav's that sound great:
Tool - The Pot
Arctic Monkeys - Arabella
Chili Peppers - Dark Necessities
Highly Suspect - My name is human
Mastodon - The Sparrow

Re: 69 Burb speaker/amp/sub suggestions needed

I've got the rear part pretty much done. Working on getting the front component speakers mounted and installed. Will probably be a while on this as space is very limited...

Started the install on the passenger side kick panel last night. The best method I found to get a good fitment was to make a cardboard template of the RetroSound panel and then trim it to fit your truck kick panel. Once it fits, transfer the template to the ABS panel and trim it. The pull vent mount and Velcro in the other two corners will keep it secured. Also, my PrecisionReplacement push on door seal overlaps the panel door edge to help keep it tight also.

Here's a picture of where I'm thinking of mounting the tweeters. I chose here for simplicity of wiring but am open to suggestions or recommendations.

Then I need to find a good location for the component piece, real estate under my dash is a premium....

Once I'm finished with that, I will cover the panel in speaker carpet and call it done.

I took a quick look at the drivers side. It will not even go in there with the dimmer switch in current location so I guess I'm going to be looking at some different options here.....

Also, here's a picture of the amp current configuration. I believe it is setup like you recommended, LMK.

Re: 69 Burb speaker/amp/sub suggestions needed

Rob, I thought I scared you away with my music choices. But saw in your other thread you were busy.. I listened to Rosanna the other day to see what the fuss was about. Instrumentally, it is actually a cool song with lots going on. But the chorus line is annoying, and now I can't get it out of my head. It is recorded at a lower level, and when I went back to other music had to turn the volume down.

Kick panels are looking good. It looks like you've got the spacers. I've seen comments on this forum before that the dimmer switch doesn't clear. Though I don't know the solution.

On the amp, turn all (3) LEVEL knobs fully counter-clockwise. You will adjust them later.

Set the switch in the top middle to "LPF", and the LPF knob to half-way (12:00).

Lower left switch, rear channel, set to "HPF", and turn the adjacent HPF knob fully counter-clockwise, then turn it up 1/8-1/4 turn. You want this knob to be roughly 100-110hz, but you really can't tell by looking at the dial.

Front channel can stay at "FULL". If you get into tweaking the tuning, you can play with that later.

Don't forget to hook up the supplied x-overs for the front components.

Following you on this build has got me antsy to do the install on my 57 truck. But I'm a long ways from getting that done.

If you're talking about the x-overs, you can mount them next to the amp.

I think I've found a place under the dash which will help with the cable routing. Did you look at the initial amp settings that I posted?

Yes. You need to make some adjustments. I just posted it a couple minutes before the last message.

My apologies. I saw the second post and totally missed the first one. Will make the adjustments this evening. Thanks again!

Thanks guys! I have the drivers side panel trimmed, I just need to get it covered and install. I also played around with the amp settings a little, but even without having everything completely installed, I can tell this is probably the nicest sounding stereo system I've owned . I really appreciate all your help in this and am looking forward to the finished product, !
