Hey Tacoma World - I'm semi new to the forum and have to say that it's pretty awesome! Lots of cool people always happy to share information. I just upgraded from a 2001 Regular Cab 4 cyl. to a 2012 Access Cab TRD Sport V6...you can imagine the difference!
My ONLY complaint is how terrible the stereo system is. Not because that was an important factor in my purchase, but I think it's reasonable to expect a "decent" system in a vehicle produced in 2012 & for the price paid. But, again, it's my ONLY complaint. The 2012 is awesome, IMHO.
My basic plan is to:
- install JVC head unit, already purchased: http://www3.jvckenwood.com/english/car/2011navi_microsite/
- Metra steering wheel kit
- replace the front door speakers
- add a 10" sub in the back
- add an additional pair of speakers to the access cab doors (6.5s?)
I'm ready to put a system in and have some quick questions:
What size speakers are in the front door?
The access cab doors don't have speakers in them..I've seen some people that have added speakers with some kind of grill replacement..do you have to do this custom? Where would you buy these pieces?
If I don't do the above, and don't have any speakers in the access cab doors, where else could I add additional, say, 6.5s?
I'm assuming I should have a pair of speakers in addition to the front door set just to round out the sound, when considering the sub. Thoughts?
Thanks for any assistance!
