Robert L's 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS

Items installed:

  • Pioneer DEH-P3900 head unit
  • Kicker amps and Comp V 10" Subs
  • 2.5k uf cap
  • 4 Sony 6-1/2" speakers

Installation Description

The first thing I did was to decide whether or not I was going to go ahead and cut the dash to put a single DIN unit in a mint classic car. In the end I ended up using an under dash universal housing and left the original radio intact. I figure I could always remove what I put in without leaving any damage behind.

The next step was to run all my wiring for the amps and power from the front of the car to the trunk, I did this while I had the interior out, since I was replacing everything anyway. Once the wiring was in place I used sound deadener on the floor of the car and in the trunk. I then started on the installation of the (4) 6-1/2" Sony speakers in the rear deck and front kick panels. I had to purchase specially molded kick panels the house the front speakers.

Once all the above was complete I moved on to tackling the the trunk. I started out by getting a sub box that would fit up on the rear portion of the trunk just under the rear deck and fastened it to the floor using "L" brackets. I then began making a template out of cardboard to get the general layout. once I was happy with the layout I started cutting out the patterns on half inch fiber board and fastening the pieces to the trunk using small screws which were counter sunk. I then moved on to installing the low pile carpet I picked up at a local auto parts store. Installed and wired up the speakers, cap and amps. I also added a red LED strip just above the two subs to enhance the chrome grills at night.

    I have a 1966 chevelle and I want to do the same trunk system as you did. Can you send me information on how you made the trunk display. Great fully appreciated. I have alpine SPS-619 speakers in the back and Focal Auditor AP-4340. Infinity reference for kick panels. Rectro sound stereo. I got the stereo and all the other stuff from Crutchfield. If you can tell me what else I need would be appreciate, thanks.

    Do you have any pictures of the truck frame up before the finished product? I also have a 66 and want to do something similar. What box did you choose and did you have to put feet on it to get it to stay flat. Got to love that little bump in the middle of the shelf.

    Love the setup!! I'm currently restoring a 67 and was looking for sub and tuner Ideas. Did you use both amps for the subs? or split them for the other speakers?
