    I've got a Bose Wave. If I could feed that from the head unit AND the AC inverter, I could see some possibilities ;-)

    How does /did Bose get all that sound out of those tiny speakers?

    Well. The Aux in on the WAVE is standard two pin audio jacks..

    Now to find the Aux OUT on the 2021 head unit.

    I'll need to measure the 110 V AC current draw ;-)

    Will it fit under the Pass. seat? or just sit between the rear jump seats on the Access Cab. ?

    Stereo upgrade is tricky, it is very subjective and it is really up to you how far you want to go with this and how deep is your pocket . However, most will agree that at minimum you need to upgrade all speakers, 4 on the doors and 2 on the dash and add an amp with oem head unit. I started with just replacing the speakers without the amp but I had to turn up the volume almost to the max to stream my music.

    Once you decided to replace the speakers, you want to do sound deadening as well since you will open the door panels. Good luck OP.

    If you want it to sound better, the dash tweeters and 6x9’s will help. The rear is optional in my opinion because the factory HU cuts power for lack of a better term to the rear speakers, they just aren’t doing a whole lot back there.

    if you want it louder, you need an amp. I just did a speaker upgrade at first and later added an amp and subwoofer. I don’t listen to it cranked up at all but the amp and sub did wonders for overall sound quality.
