under the dash (set back for water resistance).
installed all 2 pairs of 3-way MB Quart
Components, 1 pair custom cut into the doors,
and the other put into custom made enclosures
on top of the wheel wells in the rear (which

Macintosh 6 channel amp, didn't supply the
bass the customer wanted, so we added a
Phoenix Gold 2 Channel amp under the
rear seat, to power the subs.
