I upgraded my '67 duetto with an 85 amp alternator, installed a decent CD player with AUX input (no amp) and bought
some sturdy speaker boxes with some decent 6" x 9" speakers.
They're wedged in behind the front seats.
Agree with other posts about the open air with highway noise / carbs / exhaust sound.
I can really only hear the music well when I'm sitting at a red light or if I have it turned up really loud.

i had an '84 spider when i was in college in the late 90s. I got two 6x9s in enclosures and ran wire under the carpet to the back. they just sat on luggage shelf and had just enough juice and clarity for me.

To beat the headphone law, check out Boses' new sunglasses with bluetooth earphones. If only they were available in prescription.
