    I have a 2013 Access Cab; it came with the cheapest stock radio which I replaced for a Kenwood ddn70hd. I want to place a speaker in the rear between the two fold down jump seats for a surround type stereo and added bass sound.
    The Toyota X-Runner type Sub Woofer is made for this ($360)

    My 1st Question: Is the Toyota Subwoofer an all-in-one?
    Subwoofer, speaker and AMP in one box, don’t need anything else, just plug and play into my Kenwood.
    Does anyone know what the specs are on this subwoofer; make, watts ect?

    My other option is the Kicker Hideaway Subwoofer ($300)

    I am not looking for tick off your neighbor earthquake rattling bass. I just want an all-in-one speaker box in the rear for added stereo with at least some bass.


    Which system would you go with?

    How do you like the HS8?

    I love the Kicker, it was installed under the passenger seat.
    It sounds good and has real good bass throbbing sound. I have the remote bass level set at about 50% to 60% and that's plenty good for me. I listen to Sirius Radio "Jam-On" It rocks in my cab but doesn't bother the neighbors.
    I did replace the stock door speakers with - Pioneer TS-D 1720C, Component w/Cross Over speakers.
    My 2013 access cab came with only the front door speakers. I plan on adding 2 more speakers in the rear access cab doors to give a more balance of stereo.
    If you what my opinion - Go For It .....

    Awesome, glad to hear you like it.
    It seems like a good solution without breaking the bank and saving on valuable real estate inside the truck.
    Thanks for the feedback.
