    Hey guys,

    New to the forum, so first and foremost - hello! I just purchased my third Taco in sequence, a 2012 that still hasn't broken 600 miles.

    That being said... I'm a little disappointed in the factory stereo. I installed some nice aftermarket stereo equipment in my '05 (which is all for sale, hint hint), so maybe that's part of it. Those speakers in the headliner are just worthless...

    My question, before I trust the dealer, has anyone heard of installing the access-cab subwoofer (the factory model) after-market? I want to keep the factory interior of this pickup intact, and I know the access-cab woofers exist. Any help would be great.

    That factory sub is not going to be cheap and chances are, will not add what you're looking for in terms of sound. I would explore other aftermarket options.

    For the money you'd put into getting the factory sub you can get a much better after market sub and sound way better. Why not just move all the after market stuff into your '12?

    Whipper - I'm concerned about warranty issues... But I've thought about going that route. Any word on how invasive it is replacing those worthless laptop speakers in the headliner? Anyone tackle that bear?

    As for moving my old equipment over (Bo, its less than a year old, will PM photos), I want to keep the factory look and stereo in this one. If the factory sub is that terrible, maybe amped after-market speakers are the way to go.

    Snapper, thanks man. Ill look into the amped 6X9's, and maybe an under-the-seat sub. The dealership recommended a stereo place that I'm familiar with. Too bad the non-JBL system is such Crap. Real disappointment for a $30k vehicle.

    Not sure, but speaking from experience, you should be able to wire it up. Does the stock sub run off of RCA's or a line-out converter?


    On a related subject, I broke down and just threw $700 of new stereo equipment at my truck today. Couldn't be happier.

    I am looking for a box to put in a sub in my 2011 Taco Access Cab as well. I didn't know they made them with stock sub though. This is my first truck/first Taco. Coming from a 05 Mazda 3 so this is all new to me. I cam across this:

    http://www.supercrewsound.com/10tacoecconsole.html

    Before I bought it I wanted to know what are people using out there and is this a good buy? It seems like people with Double Cab or Standard don't have an issue installing subs but people with Access Cab have very few options. Any help would be great, thanks!

    I don't have any experience with that specific box but the company is great I've gotten 3 boxes from them and all have come in a timely manner and are very well put together.
