    Well think I blew my passenger side JBL speaker hahahaha!!

    Anyway, can I plug and play any speaker or does it have to me the same since its a upgraded stereo or whatever?

    Was thinking about getting a new HU anyway (touch screen) and maybe a sub but didnt know if I had to re-wire everything? :confused:

    You will not want to put in any random speaker with all the other speakers stock. If you upgrade, upgrade in pairs.

    You can upgrade but you will need new baffles to mount the speakers in. The mounting holes are to big for a regular aftermarket speaker. You can get the baffles from tacotunes.com for a 6 x 9 speaker or a 6 1/2" speaker. They also sell the wiring harnesses for the speakers if you dont want to cut off and splice wiring. Toyota didn't make it very easy to upgrade the speakers but it is possible you dont have to stick with the stock speakers.

    No problem man.

    It can be really confusing but it really isn't as bad as they make it look. But it is extremely easy to do. Especially if you get the kit from that website. Its pretty much take out the old speaker put in the new and plug it in.
