    Finally got all my new audio installed. Took my time coating my new MR MARV box just to scratch it all up installing so I had to do a few touch up spots that are noticeable. First I painted it a flat black then used a textured truck bed liner in a spray can. Followed by a rubber truck undercoating also in a spray. It gave it a really nice finish. If i did it again i would prob do a second coat of the undercoat, but im not pulling that heavy box back out. At least not alone again.

    I am really pleased with everything thus far. The speaker sounds really good. It exceeded my expectations im not done tuning the Eq and everything yet so its not picking up the low notes like i would like but on all around bass it great.. The head unit really gave my stock Tacoma speakers a boost when i installed it a few months back. so i am also pleased with that until i can change those to aftermarket as well.

    I have the Pioneer 3200BT head unit

    Well since these pics I have already change where I ran the wires. They were through the channel behind the speaker box, but I moved them to under the carpet under the back seat so when I lay the seat down they aren't all stretched out. Like in the pic I couldn't even have the RCA PLUGGED in while the seat was Down cause they didn't reach. Now they run right up the back the seat and plug in.


    But to answer ur question. In march (birthday) I'ma get the AEM bruteforce dry air intake. Can't wait for that. Then I'll prob need tires as I got 45000 on the ones I'm riding currently.

    And yes Mr Marv box is awesome. Ima prob take it out when it gets a little warmer and drier, then carpet it up nice.

    Yeah we followed what Rockford fosgate suggested for that speaker in an enclosure and it was 1.25 cubic ft. This is a PORTED box again!

    No gripes at all. In order to integrate you have to buy the pioneer harness which is extra of course, not sure how much but it def can. I have always had alpine radios but this is my first pioneer and I'm satisfied with it.
