    Here's what I have so far - trying to do this on a budget. I already have the rear speakers and the amp, and would prefer not to change those. Nothing else besides the amp wiring kit has been ordered yet.


    Pioneer AVH-P3300BT Head Unit
    Axxess ASWI-PS Steering Wheel Controls
    Scosche TA2053 dash kit
    Image Dynamics CTX65CS Components (front)
    JL XR650CXi Coaxials (rear)
    Alpine PDX-5
    10” dual sub enclosure – eBay
    100ft Monster XP speaker wire 14ga
    ZN7450 4 channel patch cable
    EFX 8 gauge wiring kit

    6.5" speaker adapters and tweeter mounts from Tacoma World member

    (2) ID10D4 subs OR (2) Dayton 10" HO subs
    OR 1 IDQ10D4v3 - my amp birth sheet was around 400w on the sub channel. Is it worth it to run 2 subs, or will 1 good sub with 400w be "enough"? Help me out here as I'm pretty lost. I had an ID12D4 before and loved it, but I cannot fit a 12" sub in this truck easily. Box will be about .6ft^3 per sub.

    Raammat? Will 1 roll be enough to give me some bang for my buck? I was thinking of covering main areas of each door and the back of the cab behind the subs. I'd rather not spend $200+ on this stuff as I'm already pushing my budget, but if 1 roll will make a big enough difference, I'll get it.

    Thanks for looking and any suggestions are welcome.

    I have 2 10" subs and 500 watts. Its not enough to have others hear the bass outside very much but its fine for inside. Not crazy at all. 1 10" sub and 400 watts would be too little for me.

    I don't care much about having insane amounts of bass; I'm more interested in having a balanced, quality sound system. I listen to all types of music, but I'm not looking to rattle my doors off or anything. I was running an ID12 off this amp in my S2000 in a .6ft^3 box and it provided plenty of bass for me. I've never had experience with 10s, though.
