    Howdy TW browsers!!!

    I'm looking into re-vamping my sound system (more like a major overhaul) when I get back to the states from this deployment.

    I've found that "ok" looking pre-built box for 1st gen dbl cabs (http://www.supercrewsound.com/commerce/product.jsp?prodId=78&catId=69) and I also found one that kind of extends the center console to the back with a sub in it on customtacos.com.

    I guess i'm looking for some advice for some good quality speakers/sub/amp(s)/deck. And/or anyone who builds custom boxes and have done one for this truck before in the Yuma/Phoenix AZ area. That would ROCK!:D

    Thanks for your help!

    Hey man! I did a total over hall on my sound system too. Got a good deck (pioneer/premiere) got infiniti speakers in all 4 door. I just have always loved infiniti speakers, but theres alot of good speakers out there. This year I did the custom sub box with 2 8" pioneer subs, and they sound awsome! I got pix up if you wantta check them out.

    Hey man! I checked out your pics. Looks good! How much trouble was it to put that box behind the seat? I know you have to remove some hardware back there to make it fit.

    yeah, it wasn't that bad, just have to remove everything and bend some brackets to get it up tight to the back. But It fits perfectly.

    Here is a box i built for my 03 Double cab.

    Could probably get you some names of good shops in your area.

    As far as speakers, there are alot of good brands out there i prefer JL audio, but thats just me. Its all in how much you want to spend. Amps are the same.

    I have a friend in Surprise AZ that does car audio for fun. I could walk him through a build like this. That would be cheaper then paying a shop to do it.

    Hey, that sub fixture looks pretty sweet. what size is that? Is it a pretty sturdy mount? and If i'm looking at it, you had to take all of the storage out and replace it all with the fixture.

    The sub is a 10" JL audio w3. Yes, all the storage is gone. For me it was worth it. The enclosure is held in place via the factory bolt locations for the center console. I just had to get longer 10mm bolts and shot through the bottom of the enclosure. Yeah Surprise is just a few mins out of Phoenix. I would have to talk to my friend, but he would probably be willing to do it.
