Getting ready for a new build hopefully everything goes well This will be going in my new 08 Toyota Tundra Here is list of equipment plans.....

Headunit : Pioneer AVIC Z1 with updated larger hard drive....6 disc Pioneer CD changer....Ipod hook up....Satellite Radio....roof mount 360 12" screen...back up Camera

Front Stage : Digital Designs S4 rear chs on DD 6x9 midbass in doors.....front chs on a set of Earthquake Screamers at each corner of the dash in stock locations...door fully matted in and out It will have a rear mount EQ not sure which for now...

Center Stage : Old School Audio Control System 90 model 11 center Ch. processer on an old school JBL GTO 220 mid tweeter in center stock location

Rear Fill : Stock in rear doors on radio power for now...no real plans maybe mat the rear doors

Substage : 3 very rare DD 1008b's of 29 ever built my 3 have the optional CF dust caps...not sure how many of the original 29's had those....because of production cost DD started making the 1500 series....these will be powered by a DD M3

It just plugs into the computer plug under the dash....they are pretty neat...I had it in my Tacoma and moved it over to this vehicle....

Rear seats don't fold from the factory in a Tundra double cab...mine have been custom modded to fold and re attach with ease....I have matted the rear wall in preperation for the amp and processer rack.....The sub box will take all usable under seat space :(

One of the Earthquake Screamers in the factory location replacing the 17.5 watt factory crap tweeter...It is slightly angled...toward truck center...I went with the Earthquake Screamers because of power handling....smooth sound and they play an octave lower than standard available tweeters....I used the supplied magnet strip for the GPS antenna and Sirius radio antenna on the far right corner of the dash.....

The head unit looks really nice. I have a tundra that my wife drives. I did four 8" subs behind the rear seat ( crewmax ). It's nice having a ton of room in these trucks. Do you have any pics of the subs?

The subs look about like 1508's pretty much...I'm not sure of the difference...I think something in the VC's...Though the 1508's are awesome subs they were a little cheaper to make than these so to keep cost down DD stuck with 1508's...These might of cost $15 or $20 more than a 1508 but long term production thats a big cost to the consumers....

I pretty much always run those on my bigger systems so the highs can keep up with the bass...I'm hoping for mid 140's out of this truck.....

flipped brackets??

I had to cut about an inch or so off the rear seat brackets...4 in all...they hook on the back wall ....to let the seat down...you just lift up on the bottom seats at the height you pull the back seat down...I'll have to come up with backs for my seats now....

It will be 3 forward firing subs under the rear seat with a rear firing port that will load off the rear wall.....I believe it will work...It should have about 750 watts each on the 3 DD 1008b's

I'm gonna go with some 20's for my truck but I'm thinking something diferent like bronze colored 20's....because of color of truck....I know Chrome will look good but would be common...This is a sorta hard decision.....

IMO, Those tundras need something bigger than a 20...It's a big arse truck. At least go with a 22 and some 305's.

I'm using it for towing I'll also do a 2/4 drop to even it out....one of the reason for 20's ......plus I have two sets of 20 tire's and that will save about $800 in tire cost....

Nice!! Can't wait to see this done. You should do a system in a 2 door jeep. One of the older ones.

Louisiana_CRX
08-11-2008, 02:00 PM
You can see on the box lable its a DD1000b series with the 8 pinked in.....
I think the main difference in cost was the Aluminum coils over the copper in the 1500 series probally reason for smaller vent...less cooling needed on the Alum coils.....

I got a 2 door 4wd ...with the 3 piece hardtop and 18" tires....it is red in color...not near as peppy as the Tundra...but should be a fun ride...I sorta wanted the 6spd manual but this one came with auto...at least I can let girls drive me around back roads late at night if I'm drinking...so the auto in ways is a plus....another thing I like is the lifetime drivetrain warranty....

I'm giving myself a vacation on the 11th so really no need for it. I wont be stuck in my house 24/7 besides going to work. I'll actually get out and DO something.
