Customer had recently purchased this car from a friend and knew immediately that they audio was junk....so we knew exactly what to do.
Main Goal: Top Down Loud, Clear Audio
Keys to Success: Quality Audio Components with plenty of power
Power Players: Arc Audio Arc Series Speakers, Arc Audio KS Amp and Stinger Goodies
These Vettes have some massive speakers in their doors...but they are just massive piles of poo.....so I Fabricated a 1/2" MDF Adapter to house the Arc Audio Arc 6.2 Component Speakers....then I turn the fiberglass doors into massive subwoofer boxes by reinforcing everything with Stinger Roadkill and sealing up the doors with a custom sheet metal patch; as well as F.A.S.S. acoustic rings to help bridge the gap between the door panel and speaker. The Arc Component Tweeters may look less than capable compared to the OEM 3.5" speaker in the door; but this is the biggest contender when dealing with top-down driving in this convertible...these small guys will be able to cut through the wind-noise at 100+
The rears were fairly simply....5.25" Arc series coaxials and some slight tweakage and they fit like a glove.....I didn't like the OEM covers..so I opted to use the ones that came with the Arc speakers.
For the rear, I installed the Mini KS 4 channel amplifier to provide plenty of power to these speakers while not taking up any useful room....because Golfing is necessary and ain't nobody got time for amps/wires in the way of your drivers/putters!
The KS mini was almost too big..but I made er fit and it's got easy access to adjustments on the top of the amp if they are needed.
We also did some exterior upgrades....customer didn't like the way the OEM brakes looked and wanted a simple update. So we removed the wheels and started masking everything off. The OEM brakes got a nice coat of brake-caliper gloss black and the fronts got INDIVIDUALLY masked off and got a nice coat of Chevy Red to make the 'Corvette' pop.
We also fixed the lower front valence that is commonly trashed from speed bumps and anything higher than a leaf!
