Old skool truck+Old skool Stereo=Recycled

Seems kind of funny to post this but it just seemed right. This is a work/tow rig for the customers show truck and he wasn't completely happy with the stock 2 door speakers and cassette player. It's a 2000 Chevy 3/4 ton crewcab long bed and the customer had collected some freebies, hand me downs and good deals on these components. Just seems fitting it was period correct.
For those that remember the Kenwood KVT-911 TV head unit that started it all it was installed in the factory location, almost out dated because the TV turner doesn't even work due to the new digital standards. The 10 disc changer ( old version of a MP3 ) player was installed where the factory airbag would have been on 1/2 ton trucks but the 3/4 ton and 1 tons were not required to have them at this time.
New Rockford Fosgate mids and highs were installed in the front factory locations and the rear needed a little bit of cutting to were there would have been speakers. Next a sub box was built using MDF board and factory matching carpet to go behind the seat. The Rockford Fosgate 12-P3S was counter sunk into the box to help protect the speaker a little bit better.
Last, a Rockford Fosgate amp was run to power the single sub and a JL Audio 4 channel amp was used to power the mid's and highs. Both were mounted on a simple amp rack next to the sub.

I can honestly say this one brought back some memories. LOL!
