    38 y.o. and just put in my first system in my '07 double cab taco. The last piece was the sub. The only company that I could find that builds boxes specifically for the tacoma as well as my dash kit, speaker mount kits etc. was Tacotunes.com. They helped me pick out the Alpine amp, speakers and sub based on the tunes I listen to. These guys build rediculous stuff. Everything fits and looks like it came from Toyota. Who doesn't love buying stuff? The best part is all the how to stuff is on youtube with links from their website. This might be my first post on here but I'm such a huge fan I had to spread the good word. Send me a message if you want details about the install or hit up Tacotunes.

    So here are a couple things you should know: The box is covered with Rhino Liner to keep the formaldehyde from leaking out and gives it an awesome look. I used only 1 sheet of dynamat to save money and put it only on the contact points. The taco is so solid I don't think the whole thing needs done and I hear 0 (zero) vibration in the back. The seats go back in and you never know there's a system in the truck just by looking. It slams! The install of just the sub took about 1.5 hours even though the box is pre-drilled and i'm a rookie at this. The Pioneer deck has a full eq allowing me to tune the system specifically to my ear. Everything from alternative rock to rap sounds epic! I have more pics if anyone is interested. Please check them out tacotunes.com. Hot chicks doing the how to videos doesn't suck too. Worth watchin!

    This post is you realizing the inside of the box isn't coated in Rhino Liner and you have a giant port hole in the box that lets formaldehyde air get in and out. Proceed to wtf.


    Install looks great though. Really nice fit and finish and that Image Dynamics sub is a great piece.
