    I only order mounting brackets from this company, and even then they have screwed the pooch on those orders a few times.

    Talked to them on the phone, they said the Alpine Type-R tweeter is a 1 inch cut out. I told him over the phone its bigger than that and I can measure real fast. He got snappy "No need! It's a 1 inch hole and it will work".

    It's not a 1 inch hole, had to widen the hole to make it larger and fit the speaker. Was it a big deal, not really. But ordering 100$ worth of MDF/Plastic it shouldn't have to be modified and he could of waited the 30 seconds for me to bust out a tweeter and measure it.

    I just got the "I thought I replied. Checking now." Email. But still not tracking number. I guess this is some sort of automated copout after you send three emails.

    Hopefully this helps, but I didn't receive a tracking number or any other correspondence after the initial order confirmation. In the end, I did get everything as ordered. I hope you have the same experience, best of luck!!!

    Ordered head unit harness, steering wheel control adapter, dash kit, and tool kit. Everything arrived promptly but the tool kit is junk. Everything else was good and worked perfectly.

    Ordered ID CTX65CS speakers, upgraded speaker brackets and wiring harness. Ordered on a Saturday and had a tracking # on Monday and the order within 5 days. The box was packed with leftover Christmas wrapping paper and the cardboard tube from it.. cheap.....no speaker wire and a grab bag of nuts and bolts that seemed useless. Needed some help on wiring, called, emailed and tried the chat, no response or any help. The videos on the site are not for beginners like me and knowledgeable people would not need them. I was able to call ID direct and they helped me out, thank g or I would still be pulling my hair out. I would only order the speaker brackets from them in the future, nothing else. I even ripped up the picture of the model they sent..............


    btw, the crossover unit with those speakers fits right behind the door handle on each side of the truck. If you mount the crossover to a small bracket you can just unscrew the bolts that hold the metal plate in the door and use those holes and screws for the bracket holding the crossover. That is the only place in the door that will work and up that high on the door the window mechanism has zero clearance to add bolts or screws. Oh yea if you disconnect the stock tweeter with the stock wiring harness to remove it, nothing will work. You have to cut and cap the wire to the stock tweeter leaving the stock wiring harness still connected......That took quite a few f bombs to figure all that out..... Learning the hard way is my way...............................

    I really wanted to order a speaker bundle from TT but after reading so many complaints of people who got dicked around by this guy I went another route and spent more money. I know what it feels like to get dicked around from an online order and it sucks. Screw that guy

    You could grab some MDF and a pencil, trace around your factory speakers to make your own.

    You can get them on Ebay as well. I think autoware302 was the guy I ordered from. I modified my doors to use 6x9 speakers but they sell the 6.5 adapters there as well. Maybe try Craigslist too, they pop up once in a while.

    Never bought from Mr. Marv but heard great things about him always..and he was very helpful when I was looking at ordering from him for my enclosure. Only reason I didn't go through with it is a local member hooked me up with his.

    I wish I saw this thread before I ordered.

    I decided to be lazy and ordered the steering wheel adapator from them. They took my money right away but like others, I did not receive a tracking number. I've sent 3 e-mails and still nothing.

    It's a small part. They could put it in an envelope and mail it.

    STAY AWAY. I WOULD NEVER ORDER ANYTHING FROM THEM AGAIN!:mad:

    When did you order from them? I ordered the steering wheel adapter, dash kit, and wiring harness and got my items promptly. They sent tracking as well.

    A little off topic, do you think the plastic speaker adapters from TT are better for vibration than using mdf? I did get the plastic from TT, they fit perfect and I hear no vibration from the ID csx 65's.

    I ordered them Feb 4th. It was the same day I made the rest of my order from Crutchfield. Got that in 3 days. Still haven't heard from Tacotunes.

    I'm in Canada but I have ordered tons from the States and never had a problem. I'd be fine if I got something and they said it was back ordered, but not even the courtesy of a reply. I like their website as now it says you can only contact them by e-mail.

    I thought their steering wheel adaptor would work well since it was specific for the Toyota in that you pretty much just pluged it in. Had I known they don't really ship it, I would've ordered that piece from Crutchfield, spliced it in, and would have had Bluetooth 8 days ago.

    I would not recommend these folks. I will update once I actually here from these people.
