Because it is a convertible, rear speaker options are more limited. I am tentatively planning two downward firing 10" subwoofers in low-profile sealed boxes, on the floor behind each front seat. Twin Kenwood amps in the trunk on the package shelf will handle power for front and rear speakers and the two subwoofers. I'm also tentatively looking at a pair of Bose cube module rear surface mount speakers for rear fill in, and a pair of Polk Audio 6½ component front speakers with separate tweeters on each side in the front.

The sound control materials helped a lot -- I think. I didn't drive the car after buying it back from my brother, so I have no basis for comparison. However the engine is much more noisy (it was built loose and has forged pistons) than my 110hp '66 convert, and so is the exhaust. However, my wife and I have no problem holding a normal conversation when going down the highway at 65 -- as long as the radio is off.
The bezel is the one down by BucketBoss several years ago (and no longer available).
