Matt's 62 Ford
Matt came to me wanting his old truck to totally rock. The funny thing about him is that he loves his truck no matter what! Everybody he knows has told him that the truck is “just not worth it” to fix up or do anything with. Well Matt saw total potential when he found this truck. The 1st time I saw it, I wanted to get a tetanus shot before getting in it. He re-assured me that it was going to be “bad ass” when it was done. He put some nice new tires and rims on it, moved the gas tank to under the truck instead of behind the back seat, and drove it on down to me to get everything installed. He picked out some of our nicest equipment. The head unit is a Pioneer DEH-P6000UB, the front speakers are the Pioneer TS-D902P, the amplifier driving the speakers is a Kenwood Excelon KAC-X40, (the 4-channel amplifier is bridged to the 2 speakers to get 150 watts rms each speaker), the bass amplifier is a JL Audio Total Mobile Audio (T.M.A.) T2 1000.11000 watt amplifier, and the 2 subwoofers are Kenwood Exclelon KFC-XW1000F Flat style 10” subwoofers. The subwoofers sit in a custom box made for the truck. In addition to everything, he added a Parrot 3200LS Color Bluetooth unit to the mix. The Parrot is mounted on the driver side of the truck in the corner and connects to his Apple iphone. Now he has a “bad ass” stereo and he’s handsfree legal too!
The doors came to us with big holes in them. The original materiel filling the hole was either deteriorated and gone or taken out before Matt got the truck. Our 1st idea was to make a plate like you see but put the speakers more toward the front of the door and cut a little out of the metal door and the panel, but we ended up putting the speakers right where you see. Since he was running so much power to the speakers, being down low like that didn’t matter.It’s plenty loud!
As you can see, the amplifier installs turned out beautifully. The wires were all tucked away, they were mounted down nicely, and spacers were added under each edge of the amplifiers. The spacers were to even out the amplifiers making them parallel to the floor so they fit under the seat. We even ended up making cover plates to go over the top of the amplifiers so when you sat on the seat, you hit the cover plates and not the amplifiers. If you look under the seat with everything back together, you can’t really see too much. The amplifiers look like they are enclosed but they have plenty of ventilation. One nice thing about buying the nicest equipment is that you don’t have to have as much ventilation as you would with a cheap amplifier. Rock on Matt!
