    Seeming the trend with polls these days, the "what music do you listen to" in your taco thread got me thinking.

    How loud you normally listen to your music in your truck?

    By myself i usually push it to around the 40's but when i'm with people i usually keep it around 20's. Mainly for safety purposes. But if i'm really feeling the music it wouldnt be a huge stretch for me to push those cruddy stock speakers to the max air drumming the whole way. :eek:

    with one hand on the wheel at all time of course :D gotta practice safe air drumming. :cool:

    I had the stock speakers replaced with All Alpine units in the doors and a 4 channel Alpine amp so the stock setup was week at 30 and usually ran it in the 45 to 50 range. Now with the custom unit and stock deck Im at the 25 to 30 range. Unless its summertime and windows down its in the 45 range.:D

    Yeah, I'm really wanting to get an aftermarket system in my taco, I'm thinking 2 JL3TW5's on 1000 watts rms :cool: had it in my old stationwagon lets see if we can do it in the taco haha

    maybe 4x45W or up RMS for the doors to even it out

    Alpine PDX amps maybe? :spy:

    I find myself maxing the stereo out quite often. I listen to a lot of live recordings that seem to be lower volume. Hopefully getting an AVN726E will fix this, anyone know what the stock head unit pushes RMS wise?
