    hey all, i'm new to the thread, and just got an 03 Doublecab (prerunner, sr5, i'm pretty excited :D)

    now that i've got her, i wanna start looking into installing subs. however, i noticed that toyota has done a good job of not leaving a whole lot of interior space. so my question is: what are my options for subs? also, i've seen that MrMarv makes custom boxes, mounts, etc... how much would one of these run me? thanks in advance for any help offered!

    I have an access cab and I can fit 2 12" kicker L7's in the kicker box just fine with plenty of room to spare. I think a double cab would have plenty of room.

    You are comparing the 1st gen to the 2nd gen Tacoma and assumes the OP wants to lose seating space. I think they were looking at something more compact.

    look at "supercrewsound.com" I got my sub box there. and it was a perfect fit, and the sound is awsome with the 2 8" pioneers.

    EverTaco, could you post the dimensions of the supercrewsound box? I am interested in knowing what the dimensions are because I have a hunch that the internal volume they post is inaccurate.

    thanks guys for all the help, i really appriciate it.
    i will get in touch with mr marv and see what his stuff would run me... unfortunately, i am a high school student with little money, and since the tacoma is no hybrid, i'm still dropping most of it at the pump. still, i am determined to get a sub, so i will either get the box from supercrewsound or one from mr marv. thanks guys for all the help, its this kind of helpfulness that has already got me hooked on the forums here

    sorry to revive an old thread... but...
    i found a local guy who has a box for doublecabs with 3 6x9 alpine type-r subs... i know these wouldn't hit quite as hard as 8's or larger subs, but how much of a difference would it be? the guy selling has it at a great price (100 for the box and 3 subs) and everything seems good from what i've seen of it... any ideas/suggestions/thoughts on the matter?

    Somehow I don't think those are subs. 6x9s are speakers for 99.9% of what's out there.

    hey, in the right enclosure, you can make most anything a subwoofer. You just need the cone area to makeup for lack of excursion. You can also port an enclosure and tune it to make up some head way for a small cone. That is why you can get decent bass out of computer speakers that have a 5-1/4" driver in a little 1cuft box.

    My first attempt at a bad ass stereo install was putting a pair of 6x9's in a sealed box to improve bass response. But, having lived that lesson in poor stereo, I'd recommend against the triple 6x9 box mentioned above. Go with a pair of 8" inch subs or a 10 or two.

    I've put a pair of boston G1 10" subs behind the rear seat of an 03 double cab relatively easily... just takes a little creativity.
