Question Building an old school system....

Hey Im looking to build an old school system now for my 1990 civic, now that I have an Alpine 7909.
I currently have Infinity reference 6.5" coaxials up front, a 10" Pioneer IMPP sub in sealed box, and a 4 channel Pioneer GM-X564 amp.
I wanna get something old school like the Linear power or old Zapco amps.
What do you suggest ?

No idea.. I might just get a set of 2 way Focal Polyglass 165VRS.
Nice and shallow mount for the doors:

Thumbs up

Well then......maybe I something to offer for that.....I've had this LP3002 forever, it's been in and out of a few cars, but it's the right vintage for ya.....

Apologies up front for the pics....cell phones still don't have the best cameras in them....

It's still in pretty good shape.....there are a couple of small scratches on the fins, the speaker Molex is loose (but original.... ) but when Dave Mac benched it a couple of years ago it was still doing it's rated power.....

LMK if you're interested....I would love to see it in a vintage system and I have no vehicle that fits the plan like your Civic.....
