Vans are a natural speaker box...On a old vehicle it is not wise to put big subs in...the screws that are loose will fall out and the rest will follow...if you put in big stereo lock tight all screws & dont use nails on wood products....

This in between my seats in the 93 it is hooked to a 700 watt amp...NO subs and it gets loud enough that I cant hear for 10 min if I crank it....4- 6x9" & 4- 4" + the 4 3x5" ft & rear...cap the highs to the 6x9 and cap the lows to the 4"....amp is mounted on the ft side of the spr box..




this in in the 92....No subs....with 2 more 6x9 in the barn doors....

Yeah, I'm just looking into thickening up the sound I just want 200 watts at most and 1 ten inch sub just for a decent sound I'm not looking at making it loud and obnoxious.

As this is just a trial fit, I went ahead and attached to wires to make it work. But now that it's in there I just have to work on the mounts and trim pieces. More Pictures to follow along process! yay!!!



Looking good....

Stereo's gonna have to wait. Gotta fix the leaking radiator I pray it's only a bad hose and not the pump as it's leaking from that general location as well as give it a good flush, new t stat and an oil change is little past due too. Gotta keep it running if I want to keep listening to my tunes. So it may be a while to finish it as I'm trying to learn fiber glassing same time OR just cut the trim piece to fit, not sure which way I want to go yet. most likely trim piece because it's cheap and will cover the mounts and still look OK.

Water pump is a royal bleaoch to fix! Holy hell. But it's done and I also deleted the smog pump this thing is running so good I feel as if it's going to break now lol. Pictures will be coming shortly with stereo again once I get my internet back again. Which will be tomorrow evening.

Ok it has been a very long time since I've posted on here so I must apologize, as some of you know been going through a divorce which is now finally over and now I'm a single father WOOHOO!!

Lots of things have slowed me down in this process to include mechanics of the van itself been a real nightmare. Wood trim pieces I found at the JY while looking for anew rim, I'll be going back out there once I'm hired for this AC job and completely redo the interior (starcraft is that's a good hint) I found blue power LEATHER captain seats, all 4 in 7/10 condition with wall mount/floor mount seat belts instead of seat mount like mine (can't swivel) and I'm blabbing.... Enjoy the pictures!

Anyways! here's the latest pics.





With trim... trimmed to fit on the sides at least.

And a mock up with wood trim gotta love JY finds!


Screw it while I'm here might as well post up this mock up as well

I did say thanks in my message but I'd though I would post my days work here. Radio came today but without a harness so I can fit it but that's about it. Got to wait for more parts to continue.
