Galaxie - radio upgrade

Post by jmvv » Thu 06 Mar 2014, 10:25

In December, I posted about the Galaxie that was dropped off for some love and attention.

It came in for a sound system to compliment the music from the 390.

After six weeks, this was the end result.

Image

We built a custom, motorised center console, fitted three pairs of Rockford Fosgate Power 6½ inch split speakers in the doors, two 12 inch Rockford Fosgate Power subwoofers in the boot, with another pair of 6½ inch Power speakers to accompany them. Three Rockford Fosgate Power amplifiers power the system.
I have also fitted two 220 Volt to 12Volt power supplies that can deliver 130 amps to the system, when the car is parked.

Suspension is an Easy Street airbag system (not done by use) that aids the cool factor.

Your subject is a bit misleading. It should read : Galaxie - state of the art sound installation :mrgreen:

Nicely done man!!! 8)

Beautiful there! 8)

I do have one question: where did you get that cherry dash pad? Those are damn near impossible to find here in the USA for 1965-66 big Fords.
