    hey guys i'm just curious how many of you are wanting more bass for your tacoma and want to add a sub. i have dealt with the frustration of not being able to locate a box that will fit behind the bench seat easily. I'm considering making and selling sub boxes for regular cab tacomas. I would greatly appreciate some feedback.

    What constitutes an easy fit in your mind? I believe Mr. Marv and TacoTunes sell subs that fit perfectly into a Tacoma. Although having another source for the product would be nice. It also matters if you are going to design the box properly for the speaker volume (space). There is math involved, you can't just build a box and drop in a spreaker. The math is actually easy for a sub but you must use it to create a proper product. Off the top of my head I'd say you could make a box without a speaker installed and profit maybe $30 - $45 for each unit if you buy bulk materials. Your first box you might be lucky to break even if this is the first one you've built due to errors you may have done (like cutting the material incorrectly). Your first few boxes have to be spot on and have great reviews if you want to sell.

    Just some comments and if you think you can make a good product while having a competitive price, I wish you the best of luck. Most people have to start small befor they can become big and if you have great ambitions then maybe your product name will become something everyone will know.

    I just purchased my sub from Taco Tunes and I'm just waiting its arrival. I expect it's installation to be very easy as I'm removing the plastic tray, not cutting it up.
