    Anyone know of a good guide to running speaker wires to all 4 door speakers? I'm sure I could figure it out on my own, but it would take more time.

    nightmare, but straight forward. Just keep trying to fish the wires through and you'll get it eventually.

    Too late, I already ordered 80ft of nice speaker wire :( . With how I'm obsessed with this shit recently, I may be adding another component set up front as well. Better to get this done and not have to worry about it later. I'm thinking about using Dynamat on my 4 doors, and I'll just do it then..

    You don't by any chance know if dynamat helps the sound by a large enough amount to use?

    dynamat is pretty expensive. We get a discount on RAAMmat through TW. Check out the sticky in the AV section. It is expensive, but it will help to deaden all the road noise. I haven't done any audio mods on my Tacoma, so you should likely ignore a lot of what I'm telling you, but if I had the money, I would be RAAMmatting my Tacoma.
