    So now that iv got my tacoma a few inches taller I was thinking about making the inside bump like the looks of the outside. I was thinking about all speaker replacement(front doors, back doors, and tweeters) and adding two ten's behind the back seat so I dont have to play the bass in my doors. Good idea? Has anyone else done anything similar to this? Also would this be very difficult to install? I was thinking maybe the tacotunes dual 10" round cabinet and throw a couple of amps on
    Estimated price? For quality speakers subs and amps
    And difficulty of install
    Any help or advice is appreciated

    Head unit---Easy to install
    Door speakers---Easy to install---But you will need either the Taco tunes door speaker kits or Mr.Marv has them also. Taco Tunes also has quick adapters for the door speakers.

    Amps and Subs--not a clue.

    Now be warned tacotunes has had a bad rap on many websites and many do not trust them. So be careful.

    There products are good.

    They only handle things threw email. not over the phone. Some guys on here have waited months and months just to get what they have ordered. I ordered a kit and it took over a month and I live in the same city. But some guys have been lucky and got there stuff the same week. So the customer service is not so good.

    Kenwood KDC X994 head unit, Hybrid Audio speakers (thanks Mr. Marv), Kenwood Excelon XR-4S amp.
    Before you buy, check out Mr Marv's site. Lots of good info, and he makes custom sub boxes/sells speakers. Very good person to talk to if you need guidance.
