    The only mod is a hole in my wallet!!!!!
    I just installed a single 10" tacotunes box with and image dynamics sub behind the rear seats in my 2009 double cab. I installed it on the drivers side behind the rear seat. I've taken off the plastic behind the set but i still cannot fold the seat all the way down. My tacotunes box slides around ever so slightly so i'm going to mount it somehow against the back wall (just not sure how i'm going to do this yet). I'm dissapointed because i thougt the seat would still fold flat.

    I know this is not the box your talking about, but it may help give you some help or ideas :notsure: This is the JL Audio Stealthbox loaded with two 10's. Had to cut out the factory storage area and this box bolts directly through the rear wall of the cab with the nut on the inside of the box... pretty much theft proof :D

    Anyways, I have no idea what the tacotunes box looks like, but maybe this can help. I know the seats not folded all the way flat in the picture, but it does go all the way down without any problem or force.

    Don't have that box, but you might need to cut the back plastics mount tabs off to get the box slid all the way onto the back wall.

    Hey thanks guys, too bad about the tacotunes box. That JL stealth is super sweet and stealthy. I wonder if JL makes a box for behind the driver side, I already have an amp mounted behind passenger side

    You can get this exact model for around 650 if you can find it on sale. Retail is around 750 I believe. I got mine for $500 but that's only because I have connections. I used to work in the mobile electronics industry. It comes pre loaded with the subs. Only 1 option per vehicle, they are not customizable. Sounds great. Totally worth it IMO. Fits like a glove on there, but that storage bin has to be hacked up though. The box sits flush against the back cab wall.

    I have Tacotunes and mine wont fold down without potentially damaging the subwoofer and I took off the back plastic. Mine does not shift though and I love the sound!
