    I am new in the forum I will get a 2008 double cab Tacoma in the next few days.

    I have a reserve budget for 2,200 usd for audio upgrade, I would like to get great quality (I do not need a lot of power) but I love 20HZ bass frequency.

    I will use 500 for installation.

    Guru's what are your suggestions?

    Grazie Mille

    With that budget you can do a whole lot! I would get in touch with Mr Marv on this forum and im sure he can put a package deal together for you.

    Yep, I'd look to Marv for a box. I'm thinking that the 13" shallow mount JL sub would probably be a good option, just for shear cone area. A couple of 10's could also do the trick, but you might need to get creative on where the amp will fit.

    I'd put the 500 bucks toward the system itself and install it yourself. I got all my speakers, amps, enclosure and wiring for about for alittle more than your looking to spend. I've never done a full install until this, but it's pretty easy if your willing to try it.

    Focal in the front
    Alpine amplifier 50 X4 RMS
    12 inch sub
    All the installation / with custom build box


    Price 1,300.:eek: He won several prizes worldwide his site is www.mixupcaraudio.com

    Should I go???

    Thanks Guru's


    Ciao

    From what I've heard, you're not gonna be able to fit a 12" in a Tacoma without major modification to the rear seats to move them forward.

    Personally I would still get Marv involved. My suggestions:

    JL 13tw5
    Hybrid Audio Clarus comps.
    Sundown Audio SAX 100.4 or even the 50.4 or 125.2
    Sundown Audio SAX 1000D
    Box by Marv

    Obviously Marv will take care of the box and speakers and yours truly for the amps. ;)

    There is a brace across the rear wall of the cabin that will not allow most 12" subs to fit behind the seat without some major modifications. I can fit certain shallow 12's as well as the 13TW5 and in any case no matter what gear you choose, proper installation is going to play a major role in how it sounds! :)

    if it were me i would find out what the max airspace is using the entire width behind the back seat. if you can get 1-1.1 cubic feet i would run a ported 10. if you can get about 1.5 cu ft i would run a thin mounted 12 or the 13 marv suggested. you IMO i can easily get the bass of 2 10's that plays louder and lower with a single ported 10 verses 2 sealed 10's in the same box. i would mount that 10 in the middle and an amp on 1 side of the box or mount the 10 on 1 side and the amp on the other.

    as for the rest of the system i would suggest a small 5 channel amp i LOVE my alpine 5 channel PDX-5 it has 300 watts for the sub and 75 x 4 in a small package. its a little pricy at 550.00 but worth it. you said you had 220 to play with, i think marx could build your box for less than the shops can and do the install yourself

    If you decide that a ported application is what you want to do, then you pick out a sub that is meant for that type of enclosure. Some drivers are not meant to go into ported applications, so not all subs will be optimal.

    Personally, I am not a fan of ported enclosures due to them being more finicky to the design and construction phases.
