When setting out to update the stereo system of my third gen, I was bound and determined to achieve the look and functionality I wanted on a budget I could afford. For me that meant doing the labor by myself and ordering component's online to save on cost. Third gens came out with a single DIN stereo. With allot of modification I installed a double DIN Pioneer 7" touch screen DVD receiver in it's place. It required cutting the steel frame under the AC/Heater controls and fabricating a new trim bezel to cover the cutout in the dash and to match the face of the unit.
The front speakers under the dash pads are 4"X6" in size. I replaced these with Rockford Fosgate Punch P1462 2 way speakers. modification for the larger magnet size was required. The rear speakers in the pillar post are 6"X9" in size. I replaced these with Rockford Fosgate Punch P1692 2 way speakers.
These required shimming the speakers outward to make room for the much larger magnet size.
The final part of the audio system was the most difficult but the most rewarding. Third and fourth gen Camaros do not have allot of options when it comes to subwoofer enclosures and amp racks. Most common is the subwoofers down in the well of the hatch mounted to a piece of plywood or sealed box. The amps mounted to a board behind the seats. I set out to build a custom enclosure that blended in with the factory interior, looked very sharp and provided a killer audio. Below is a visual of the enclosure build and its final outcome.
The subwoofers are 12" Audiobahn AW1200J high excursion series. They are rated at 1540 watts achievable and 700 watts rms. 94.65db sound efficiency. 120oz magnets. 2-1/2 inch dual 4 ohm voice coils. The amps are Audiobahn A6004J and the A5005J Intake series. Total output is 1500 watts. The stiffening capacitor is Audiobahn ACAP7J. Rated at 2 farad.
