Tacotunes

I was looking for some feedback on these guys before I purchase all the stuff to upgrade from stock sound in my truck. I have sent them several emails with questions specific to what I intend to buy so I can have everything on hand to start and finish the job. I have gotten no replies at all. Has everyone else had good experience with them or not recommended? If not I still need to find a cover that takes the place of the stock one. Any other sources for tacoma audio retrofits?

if their customer service is this good before they have your $, imagine how great they would be after they get your money.

Many have complaints about tacotunes... I wouldn't ever buy anything from them... very poor customer service and response times...

the only thing going for tacotunes is the hot blonde chick....

I ordered stuff from them, I got the stuff from them, I'm still using the stuff from them. There kit looks factory and fits properly. I don't have any negative feedback but maybe I was just one of the lucky ones.

I ordered everything thru tacotunes and was pretty happy. I will agree their communication sucks but I will say their prices are actually pretty fair. I did have to wait a few days for email replies but the company is ran by guys that do it part time.

Here's an example of the prices I paid and comparisons. Same discussion came up on ToyotaNation.

I got the single 10" box with the Image Dynamics IDV3 Sub for only $199. The cheapest I could find the 10" IDV3 sub alone was $159. So I got a solid built and line'xed box for only $40.

I also got the Image Dynamics CTXCS 6.5" components with MDF speaker baffles & plastic tweeter mounts for $199. Cheapest I could find the CTX components alone was $179. So I got the speaker and tweeter mounts for only $20.

...and to top it off I also got Image Dynamics CTX65 7" coaxials with MDF speaker baffles for only $149. Cheapest I could find these speakers alone was $149. So I got the speaker baffles for free.

Almost forgot...I also got the PDX5 amp wiring kit for $175. This had everything I needed and is all high quality Tsunami wiring with a digital LED voltmeter and custom Tacoma mounting block for the engine bay. Pretty fair deal IMO. And plenty of high quality speaker wire too.

I did not get a discount, these are all prices off of their website.

Just adding to ilovetacos' thread... I also ordered from TacoTunes, and just finished my install last night (took a full week). Everything I got from them is high quality and looks great. The Tsunami speaker wire is competition style and fantastic, the sub box is solid, and they even threw in a little custom job to my amp board (you will see this weekend when I post my install pics). I couldn't be happier with the products I got.

In saying that, it's very difficult to stay in contact with them as I don't get replies for a week sometimes, as you all very well may know. It's my understanding these guys have other jobs and can get very busy... they may just be picking the business they can handle?? Not sure. Regardless, I'm happy with my system. I'm still tweeking a bit, but it sounds SO NICE!

I also had a good experience with tacotunes. When I sent emails I received
quick responses. I even had a damaged speaker and they sent me a replacement. This was about 4 -5 months ago.

I had a good experience with them. No problems. I never dealt with their customer service though.

one of my biggest problems with them was that the user "robsatx" acted like a customer of theirs for the longest time, but in reality he works for them.

their product may be OK(or even good) but I don't feel like dealing with that company.
