I have a full-size regular cab '82 chevy pick-up. The truck has 1 original speaker location in the center dash. I would like a simple, low profile, but moderatly high quality system. I have room behind the seat, under the seats, and a center console. A friend suggested 2 tweeters pointing towards the windshield, 2 drivers somewhere, an amp maybee and a sub. I already installed sound matting throughout the cab to decrease the rumble from the engine.

Simply, I want a strong system well ballenced and CLEAR sounding. I like base but I'm not going to, nor would I have the ability to, bungi-cord my trunk and try to set off car alarms. I will need a fair amount of volume output though as the 502 under the hood, and the rubber on the road purrs like a turboprop at highway speeds.

Any ideas welcome.

What kinda budget are you looking at for everything?

I assume you are making kicks or speaker pods? I'd not point the only tweeters at the windshield though...

You can fit speakers in the doors with build outs. All you need to do is follow the countour of the door and make a piece of wood that will allow you to mount speakers in there. As for subs I would go with a pair of 10in subwoofers and a decently powerful amplifier behind your seats. You'll also want an amplifier for the door speakers to overcome the engine noise.
