    Hey guys,

    Just got my 2011 DCSB TRD Sport almost two weeks ago and I love it! Only problem is that I love music too and the JBL system is not cutting it for me much. Its nice, but I like more.

    When i turn up the volume it almost levels off at some point like its protecting itself....plus i get slight rattle in left door by tweeter....annoying!

    I used to have a scion xB that I had a custom system (Inifinity Components, amp, sub, HU...) and I loved how loud and clear it was.

    In buying a brand new truck fully loaded I tried to forget my customizing/aftermarket itch but its coming back ;)

    What would be a next step up? I mean I sadly can't fully upgrade yet but I would like to consider deadening, and from what ive read maybe using a JL CleanSweep with aftermarket speakers (amp option?). Ive never deadened before but I think I definitely must to help, plus nicer quiter ride ;)

    Any ideas/feedback? I can't be the only one that feels this way
