    Lots.
    I want somebody to make me a complete system.

    Head Unit - Maybe LCD screen
    Amp
    Speakers
    Subs

    I am mostly a rock guy but every once in awhile I will throw in a rap song so I want it to sound good for everything.

    I really don't want to spend more than like $600 so if things have to be cut out then let it.

    our fellow member razz8085 posted this a while back. about $600


    Best sytem I've ever had!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I've put together a few stereo systems before and I have to say what I just put in my 08 Tacoma Double cab is the best sounding system in any car that I've ever had. What's even better is I spent a total of $660 and did not have to drill or cut a damn thing. Here's a run down of what went in:

    Head Unit: PIONEER DEH-P7900BT
    Dash Kit: Scosche TA2052B in factory matched silver
    Speakers (all 4 doors): Pioneer TS-A1682R 6-1/2" 4-way
    Speaker mounts: Double cab kit from www.tacotunes.com
    Subwoofer: KENWOOD KSC-SW1 DUAL 6.5" POWERED ENCLOSED SUBWOOFER

    The head units that Pioneer put out this year and last take a little time to get used to but have a way cleaner look with so many of the buttons removed and replaced with the mult-control knob. They also have a lot more ability to control and tune each component of the sound system than other stereos I've had (i.e. Kenwood, Sony). It has a 7-band equalizer which was intimidating at first but if you take the preset equalizer setting you like best and adjust from there, it can do wonders for the sound.

    The Scosche dash kit in silver matches just about perfectly and still has some style over the black dash kit I've seen.

    The kit I got from Tacotunes.com has everything you need and made installation super easy. There was a small problem with my order but they're customer service was unbelievably awesome. I placed the order, received it, and had the problem corrected all within one week of ordering. They are the best.

    Lastly, the powered subwoofer from Kenwood...this was the biggest surprise. I was willing to sacrifice big subwoofer sound to avoid having to buy a custom enclosure, subs, and amp and then figuring out how to get it all installed cleanly. I came across this all in one number by Kenwood which is an older model but can still be found. Turned out to be perfect. Not only does it fit behind the rear passenger seat without even mounting it (no removing, drilling, or cutting anything). It puts out way more bass than I could have imagined and super clean tight sounding bass at that. I found a refurbished one on ebay for $125 shipped.

    So, just a super stoked guy wanting to share with other Tacoma owners who might appreciate it.

    I am, lets say a conissuere (sp) of car audio. Marv is as well. With your budget, you shouldn't be looking into LCD screen decks with your budget. I have seen more these $350 LCD decks broken out of the box than anything else. For them to make them at that price, they cut out so many features and or quality that it is NOT worth it at all! Give me some more details on your truck and let me know if your budget has any flexibility. Just wiring and a sub box is going to eat up half your budget.
