    Double DIN JVC Head unit with Ipod and Bluetooth, Speaker replacement, 200 W Alpine Amp. Glove box twin 12V power outlets
    I just installed a JVC DD head unit and pioneer 6.5" speakers all around.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/audio-video/7829-head-unit-installed-thanks-tw.html

    But I am not blown away by the sound quality. SO.....

    I ordered an Alpine F-300 amp. THey suggested I mount it under the seat and it looks like it will fit under there just fine. Questions though.....

    1) What do I mount it to?
    2) Can I run the wires up the miccle console?
    3) Do I have to remove the seat?

    Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

    1. screw it straight down make sure you dont hit any wires
    2. dont run wires through middle console run from the side molding in your door, the door panel removes easy.
    3. i had my seat removed you want to put the amp in a good spot the drill it down securely.

    You should remove the seat. It's easy and will save you a lot of time in the long run.
