    Here’s another update on a JL audio speaker system in my 2002 taco. Just to give you other 1st Gen folks ideas.

    Tweets fit nice and snug with no mods.

    Black piece is a piece of ABS I bought on Amazon . Used tape on window sealant (gray stuff)on the back. I will create another piece to cover the other hole. This will seal the entire door for the speaker.

    More pics coming soon

    I’m going to sink some money into the work truck in the coming weeks and have been eyeballing the JL stealthbox. How good do those components sound?

    Would you mind listing the parts or a link to the parts you used?

    I'm looking to insulate my doors and upgrade speakers this year too.

    Hey Change,

    Not sure how they sound yet, I’m not done yet. I work on it about an hour per night taking my time. I’ll be sure to post more pics as I go and let you know if I can tell a difference between these and my old Infinity Kappa 6x8s

    Hey Chance,

    These C5 sound amazing! You can really hear all the details. I don’t even need rears anymore (which I removed).

    Note

    No need to cut the metal on the door. I didn’t on the driver door a the speaker fit fine.
