    Ok, I really love it but the road noise is so intense I almost returned it. Out of desperation I took the door panels off and stuffed insulation in them (hot water heater wrap to be exact). Still noisy in the back of the cab.

    Then I found this site. Oh crap, there's actually a product for this!

    Will be researching Raamat and Ensolite next.

    Not an Audio Junkie (Way old for that) but I might as well check out some new speakers while I'm at it.

    Thanks for the site.

    Welcome.

    The Tacoma is a Lexus in terms of road noise compared to my 2008 Accord.
