This is my 1975 Datsun 280Z. It is the first car ive owned. i bought it in missouri, but its originally from texas, so it has minimal rust. i finished my sound system a few months ago but still need to carpet the sub, also i am thinking about upgrading to a 350 watt amp and use my current one for the components.
I put a 12 inch MTX woofer behind me for some bass. i made a custom box for it so it would fit between the seats and the rear strut towers.
The '75 280z did not come with speaker mounts in the door panels, so i custom mounted my rockford fosgate components to fit behind the seats. It may not be the best acoustical placement but it still sounds good and was easy to do. My 200 Watt Premier Amp is currently powering my sub, and is placed behind the passanger seat. The crossovers for the speaks are behind the drivers seat.
I put a base model pioneer DEH-1600 head unit into the dash. i couldn't find a kit, so i cut straight into the dash to make my head unit fit. probably wasn't a good idea for resale, but i plan on keepin it for a long time.
