I'm upgrading my 2009 Taco DualCab sound system so I have a few questions.
I'm trying to find out if anyone has installed the Image Dynamics CTX65CS in the fronts, and CTX65 in the rear of a Dual Cab. Okay, here is the kicker, using only the stock head unit and without a sub woofer or Amp.
I want to use a seperate tweeter in the fronts and of course the rears would be coaxial type but that fairly match. That is one reason for the specified Image Dynamics set, and that TacoTunes sells those with the mounts as well, reducing overall cost.
Rationale: I can afford the speakers now, no sub or amp yet. I stongly desire to retain my original head unit as it performs all the functions I need and most aftermarket head units look out of place (not a factory type look). I don't want ear bleeding sound but will listen to some old Rock at fairly loud levels.
I am waiting on my order (in the mail as we speak) from RAAM Audio to deaden all but the roof. If I have extra I might think about tackling that but I understand the roof is not normally a problem.
I plan to run new speaker wires in the doors since I'm uncertain if I will install an amp but I don't want to do rework if I can help it.
Last question, does anyone know what gauge wire is used in the factory doors for the speaker wire? If they are heavy enough to handle 40 Watts RMS then I would retain the factory wires. I can't see installing an amp greater than 50 Watts per channel or a really good 25 watts per channel.
