Help 0003 limited space in old 57

Okay, I have a Pioneer head unit in a 1957 Porsche 356.

Previously I had a HUGE custom box in the back with 2 6x9s and a 10" sub all infiniti pappa series stuff and pioneer amps.

I am not going for a more stream line look and less HUGE.

I am using 2 component kappa series infiniti speaker in the front stock locations and adding a 100 watt amplified 6" bt6100 to the back cargo area for bass

My thought is to limit the front speakers to 80hz and then by adding the ampliified bazooka i should have good sound from Metallica's One to Tpayne's Church, I have to listen to what the kids like when they go for a ride with me in the car. :-/

any how

I have dedicated power and ground from the prior system, remote on from the head unit and phono plug audio feed to back for the sub... Am i missing anything? I am trying to have this ready to plug and play when the package arrives :-)

have I made a good selection? anyone help me know how to better tune the audio in the car?

I put all power to front two speakers limited them to 80hz and with feed the sub via phono plug.

I see the bazooka does lik 39-85hz so I hope my front components doing 80-25k hz gives me full rich enveloping sound

thoughts?

From what you have listed, installation should be plug and play as everything you are connecting to as already been verified as working.

Crossover setting on the BTA6100 is fixed @ 85hz. Taking the slope of the crossover settings into consideration, how well the area of the components has been prepped, etc., you may find that you may have to lower or raise the crossover point for your components. I like starting at 90hz and adjusting from there. Your ears will be your guide here.

The most important thing to remember here is to have the Tube properly mounted, output suffers greatly when the Tube is not loaded sufficiently.

Post back with any other questions you may have.

Forget about crossover settings for the moment and think displacement.IE: no replacement for displacement, cool? any infinity product out there is not KICK ***! sorry but it's turned into just a "name", just as bose and the list goes on from there...if you want loud than you need to jump into a brand not associated to bazooka (sorry SAS) but you need sundown neo 8" and super tweeters to kick some butt...Bazooka makes some verynice tuned port subs and it's hard to beat their performance for the dollar unless your into DIY and build a T line box using a sundown or equivalent! Crossover's are going to be set by car's acoustics rather then text book for the best sound and if you have a jvc or high end kenwood or pioneer head unit then you can screw around with crossover settings from the head unit instead of jumpin back and forth to the amp! I got more input but unless you want more that's it for now!
