    So I just recently bought a 2009 Toyota Tacoma double cab Prerunner. I'm really disappointed in the stock audio system, I dislike that you even when you turn the volume all the way up it's still not loud enough. Now my question is if I were to replace the stock speakers with some aftermarket ones would that help my problem or would I need to get a new deck and speakers. What are the stock specs for the head units wattage wise? and what size are the stock speakers? Lastly what are options for changing the head unit since the stock one is so large? Do they make adapter kits to fill the open area? Thanks for your help in advance.

    You will be very glad in the long run if you invest in new speakers and a new headunit. Both will greatly improve the quality, clarity, loudness, etc.

    Stock speaker size is 6 3/4"

    Yes, they make vehicle specific installation kits for aftermarket headunits.

    Actually the stock speaker size, for the front doors, is 6x9. You could get a 6.5" speaker in there without a problem though. I think you could get 8's in there with some magic and skillz.

    Oh my bad, I stand corrected. Thanks Italyn for clearing that up.

    I suggest you buy 6 3/4 speakers as round speakers>oval speakers.
