1997 AMG Hummer......

Customer wanted no modifications to the factory speaker locations. So he essentially wanted 2 pair ofs 4" speakers in the dash, and in the rear roof to keep up with 3 15's. Of course being limited to those factory sizes and locations there was not much that could be done.

doing a double din install on a 2005 BMW M3. you have to cut into the A/C-heater box about 2" to make room for the back of the deck.

first gen ranger. absolutely no depth in the doors for decent comps, ecu and inertia switch behind kick panels so those are out, no room for a decent sub behind seats and wimpy alt plus the acoustics are terrible in a tin can with no deadener

My XJ was pretty tough. The windshield/firewall is just too close to you to create any depth.

On the flip side alot of the late 80s and some early 90s cars were great to work on. Vertical rear glass (in sedans & coupes) really helped reinforce bass. Dashes had quasi bilateral symmetry.

1986 Jaguar for me. The car was retrofitted with a Chevy 350, but it retained the gas tank between the cabin and trunk... basically making the tunk useless. I brought this thread up because I ran into the Jags owner this weekend and he asked if I would be interested in "modernizing" his audio system (basically all Cerwin Vega and Fultron), I promptly said "HELL NO!".
