    Wanting to know of anyone had pics of a factory installed subwoofer for a 2012 double cab. I was thinking about buying one and installing it but don't know what the set up looks like and unsure of how much room I'd have to sacrifice. Also if anyone has one they may be interested in selling let me know.

    Go aftermarket. You would need the JBL amp, wiring and JBL headunit if you wanted it to function like stock.

    Not worth it IMO. You can get just as much bass from aftermarket speakers without a sub. Also, the subwoofer requires a digital signal provided by the JBL system. You would need the JBL head unit.

    Unless something changed in 2012, then I'm talking out my ass.

    JBL wiring it stupid easy, FYI. Two wires to the amp... thats it.

    There is no way you can get just as much bass with after market speakers. The bass in the 2012 jbl is sweet. Sounds better than most all aftrrmarket systems I've heard. I don't , however , have a picture of it.

    Even if it was wireless it isn't worth the time and money.

    Thanks for info guys, I aint looking for that much bass just a little extra kick to the music which is why I wanted to stick to the smaller factory subwoofer especially when it came to keeping some storage behind the seats. But I didn't even think of having to have the Jbl head unit, of which I don't, this is starting to seem like it might turn into a big project which I may not be up too... :)

    Just get something for under your seat.

    A little powered sub will work wonders for improving sound quality. Something like the SO powered that I will link should fit under your seat and add way better bass than any basic stock subs, I'm about 90% sure of this because odds are it's a little paper cone 60rms speaker that will run off of hu power and suck power from everything else. If you want something a little bigger then you could put a JL 8" W3 in a ported box and it'll hit plenty hard for your average listener looking for better sound.

    Or you can go stock, install an loc for low level input from factory stereo and do a normal amp install with out doing anything jbl or factory amplified. Just buy a nice aftermarket sub and amp that will fit behind the seat build a box to accommodate install amp kit and loc and skadoosh! Factory look, aftermarket sound.

    If you are wanting to keep some storage behind the seats, you may want to look at the JL 13w5 pancake sub......It sounds great, and its loud when you want it to be

    It is what I have in my setup, It only takes up behind the 60 section of my 40/60 bench in the back, but i think it would work behind the 40 section as well, with your amp (or in my case amps) mounted to the back of the 60 section

    sorry for the quality

    i have a JL 13w5 pancake behind my 60 part of my 60/40 bench seat took the plastic out, its driven by a 500 watt JL Audio J2 500.1 Calss D Mono Amplifier. I have infinity door speakers all around powered by a 1000 watt nitro amp. All controlled by a kenwood excelon with my ipod in the glove box

    Does anyone know why my factory sub wont put out any bass after installing my new alpine double din deck? I had the non JBL head unit, is it because when i removed that i took away the amp with it??? I cant figure this out
