excellent stuff man...

when i see builds like this, i really wish i would be able to devote a long period of time, say a few months or even half a year, and just do something like this (prolly on a newer car though)...instead of churning out installs every one to two weeks...

maybe someday, when i win the lottery, i can do it to my own dream car hehe

keep up the great work!

Amazing...

Saddening really though.... My first car was supposed to be a 57' Bel Air, it was bought by my grams and was supposed to be my graduation present (bought from my uncle)

Well said uncle was/is a total DEADBEAT I have never seen the car (except for pics) and now my grams has passed...
I went to my uncles house when we took my grams back to her hometown to lay her to rest.... The car is gone, it had been sitting for 15yrs now (don't ask, my moms side of the family is strange) but the spot of dead grass was still there...

I'm glad I don't have to ever see my uncle..

Nice work.:cool: I've always told my Dad, that of all the Hot Rods he owned (at various points) that I always wanted his 55 Chevy 210 Business Coupe. I'm a big time Buick guy, but have a soft spot for Chevy Shoeboxes.:D

This is great. My dad, brother, and I are building a '57 4 door Chevy 210 right now and will be running a full Arc Audio system when we're done.

Did DK help you out? He and the whole team @ Arc are an awesome group. Definitely the most fun I may ever have showing my truck.

Let me know how the speakers sound when bi-amped. I'm very curious to know.

Also, just an idea, but I would give it a really good listen before buttoning everything up. My crossovers are a PITA to get to, and it makes tuning a *****. We had to tear the dash apart like 4 times when I was doing the testing on the prototype crossovers for the 6000's...

DK is Demitrius Karabinis; owner and CEO of Arc Audio. He's awesome. Brad too. Fred might be a really good one to talk to about running the 6000's active. He's on here, but I'm not sure how much if at all anymore.

Good luck with everything. Keep us updated for sure.

I have only been an ARC AUDIO dealer for 4-5 months and i seem to only do larger type jobs, so i havent done alot of business with them. At least not yet but everyone there has been great. When this job is complete i will have the finished pics up on the arc website for sure. I cant wait to start tuning and listen.:)
