    Have already put in a new head unit. Have the factory upgraded system w/amp. Where the hell is it?? The factory amp is not sufficient. (Speakers already upgraded)Purchased an equalizer w/amp(300W). Want to bypass factory amp. What is the wiring pinout(in) for the amp. Wanted to hook up the new system to the factory wiring without running new wires to the speakers. Can someone point me to the info that I need.
    Searched and searched--most info is for 2nd generation.
    As you can see --mine is a 2003-1st generation
    Do I need to download the factory service manual?
    Thanks in advance.

    The manual is on the lower right.
    Just need the wiring outputs from the 2003 amp-cannot locate them.
    Want to just take the tacoma factory amp output wires and hook up to the added eq/amp output. that way I will not need to run all new wires to speakers.
    The connections to the eq/amp from the radio should be easy.
    Am I correct in this setup--seems to be the easiest way.

    That eq amp is not the way to go, it is also not 300w. You might actually be better off leaving it stock than if you go with that eq, that thing is like 30 year old technology. My .02

    ^I get called a keyboard commando when I'm brutally honest like that...lulz


    And agreed, that EQ is pretty junky. But let me ask you a question since I really do want to help. What are you trying to accomplish by running something like that? What's your goal? There might be a better way to get there.

    All I wanted to do--Be able to adjust sound--(equalizer)--not amplify.
    Cannot adjust the radio while driving--radio has capability--but you need to go thru a list--menu ect-cannot do that while DRIVING- Installed unit--It DOES WHAT I WANT.
    Old tech-- THATS OK. I do not want to go BOOM BOOM BOOM DOWN THE STREET.
    Thank for the input!!!!!!!!!!
    The CRAPY THING IS ADEQUATE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In dash EQs really are old tech though so I wouldn't get one.
