    Default Sound System on your verts?

    Want to upgraded my system on my 86 drop top. Nothing real crazy but a nice quality build. So please share your pics or recommendations.

    Thanks,

    I've got the original 6.5" speakers in the rear quarter panels which still work fine, but I upgraded to Rockford Fosgate tweeters in the dash and Rockford 6.5" mid range in the door panels. It sounds great for what I want. It's powered by a period correct Panasonic Supreme Series cassette radio. What I didn't want was an overwhelming bass sound sound in my car.

    Does it sound ok with thst much separation between the mids and the tweeters? Debating similar locations.

    I recently did an install with a Retro Sound head, JL amp and some other pieces. The installation hardware supplied was pretty week so I made my own. I also 3D printed a face plate and a console insert for auxiliary inputs and a bass control knob. This is an 86 GT vert.
