    Just out of curiosity how much do the speaker baffles from Mr Marv compare to the Tacotunes in price? I was actually going to be placing an order with Tacotunes for 6.5 and tweeter mounts but now I'm not so sure. If the prices are about the same I would just a soon go with Marv as everybody says he is a great guy to deal with. I would call Mr Marv but I'm not quite ready to order and I just don't want to take any of his time just yet if I can find out here. Thanks for any help.

    Ordered the adapter kit for my RC (round stock speakers, not 6x9) and the package arrived within a few days. Fit like a dream and the tweeter hole was drilled perfectly for the Polk tweeters.

    BUT.....

    I sent them an email asking about wiring since some had mentioned that unplugging the tweeter killed all sound. I never got a response.

    So... Proceed with caution. They have good products, but they are not the cheapest and I'd rate their customer service/response a solid zero.

    Did you get your question answered?

    I had a similar question about wiring and where to tap in, and PM'd Mr. Marv. He called me on my cell while I was installing to answer my question, and took another call from me later on. I bought my speakers and adapters from him, and not only are his prices and products first rate, but his customer service is outstanding. Can't recommend him enough.

    So, just in case anyone is looking for an alternative to tacotunes...

    tacotunes installation kit, for all those doubters out there, kicks a$$ and is well worth the money. My experience with them has been outstanding and second to none. Thanks tacotunes for awesome service and a great product.

    Good job on the install, but the Dynamat covering the openings in the inner door panels is not doing anything other than adding weight and smell.

    Dynamat does not absorb sound. It dampens vibrations on other surfaces that amplify/transmit sound.

    You would be better off rolling the window up and getting in there and putting a layer on the inside of the outer door skin.

    I'm sure I'm gonna get slammed for this,being my first post. I placed an order with TT on Thursday. Got fed ex shipping confirmation last night(Sunday),stating its in route from Texas. Before I placed my order,I sent an email asking questions about the bad reviews I read. TT responded within the hour of me sending the email,answering my questions. I've gotten emails from Rob telling me the progress of my order every step of the way.So far,so good.

    it's nice to see that we are finally starting to see more positive reviews.

    for a long while, everything was negative.

    Were people's experiences with them really that bad? I bought a front fascia thingy from them a couple years ago for my dads Tacoma (which is now mine) and it works fine. Now that we have two, I plan on getting another front fascia thingy for my dad's new Tacoma. I guess the problems lie in their speakers and wires and that stuff but my experience with their front fascia thingies has been fine.

    However, I will say that after reading this thread I will put more consideration into different brands.

    i ordered a 6x9 kit from tt a month or 2 ago and the shipping got messed up, however they were quick on to get it fixed and even had drop shipping from ID for the speakers. a couple weeks later i realized i needed their back door mounts and they got them to me in a day or 2. so far a pretty ok experience in my book

    I have read many mixed reviews regarding www.tacotunes.com and I was hesitant to order anything from them.

    I contacted Rob regarding the reviews I had read and he explained the shipping complications. Also, he assured me that their shipping issues had been resolved.

    I ordered the Image Dynamics CTX65CS for the front doors and the Image Dynamics CTX65 for the rear doors late on a Sunday evening. I received them promptly on Friday of the same week. TacoTunes has responded promptly to every question I have had. I honestly could not have asked for better service.

    The speakers sound excellent and the speaker mounts fit perfectly. I suppose threads like this one may be making a difference!

    I found a reference to TacoTunes somewhere here before I found out about all of the issues people were experiencing. I had e-mailed a question to Rob and he replied promptly.

    After checking out the videos on his site I decided that I'd take a shot at doing this myself. I hadn't installed anything audio-wise in a vehicle since I put a cassette deck in my girlfriend's Toyota Corona about a million years ago (yeah, I'm old).

    Shortly after placing my order, I started finding all of the negative posts about TT. Within a day though, I received a FedEx tracking number, along with an estimated delivery date. Not bad, things are moving along nicely. Since I had just gotten my Taco, I'd ordered a lot of stuff for it, and I noticed that both FedEx and UPS tracking forms usually showed when the packages were received by the shipper. My TT order only showed a delivery date, but not a pick up. Hmmm...

    When the delivery date rolled around (about 5 days later) and there was no package, I immediately thought I was getting hosed. I sent an e-mail to TT to cancel the order. Magically, a few hours later, there was a sign of movement on the FedEx site. The package had been pick up, and I had a new delivery date. Rob contacted me, apologized for the delay (no explanation), and the order arrived.

    My work schedule was now off, so I couldn't start the installation immediately. When I did get around to it, I found that my Scosche dash kit had magically turned into a Metra kit. Didn't really matter; I went ahead and ordered a Scosche from Amazon and got it the next day. I just didn't feel like putting up with a possible delay waiting for a replacement kit from Rob. Anyway, installation went well, with the exception of the dash kit. For anyone wondering which one works or looks best with a 2012, it's just a choice between two equally lame units. I ended up using the Metra because it lined up better with my HU, the Pioneer AVH-P6300BT.

    Bottom line: if I were to do it all over again, just for the sake of convenience, I'd go ahead and purchase everything from Crutchfield. If you're trying to save money, you could piece everything together from multiple sources.

    Would I buy from TacoTunes again? I'd definitely consider it. But if I did, and I got pissed off because something along the way got fouled up, that's on me. Rob seems like a nice guy, maybe not running the most organized or efficient business, but ultimately it all worked out for me. I'm sure my tolerances and patience are different than yours, so YMMV.
