    Icon32 Help me build a sound system for a Toyota Camry 2001 LE.

    I'm looking around a $1000 budget give or take depending on how much value I'd gain. Any ideas? I like clear crisp music/vocals and don't need a sub that rumbles the block. I'd be using a smartphone/laptop/tablet to stream music to the receiver. According to Crutchfield:

    Radio opening

    Usable space behind your dash for a new stereo:7.772"


    Radio types that will fit in your dash:

    4"-tall ("Double-DIN" style)
    2"-tall ("DIN" style)


    Front speakers

    Front Door: 6-3/4" Your factory speaker doesn’t match any aftermarket speaker size exactly. Here, we list the largest speaker that will fit in the factory location. As you shop, we’ll show you all options for this location.


    Rear speakers

    Rear Deck: 6x9" Your factory speaker doesn’t match any aftermarket speaker size exactly. Here, we list the largest speaker that will fit in the factory location. As you shop, we’ll show you all options for this location.

    The bulk of the funds will go in a nice source unit. Then into decent speakers and some dampening material. I would get an adapter for your rear deck and get away from thoe 6x9 idea though.

    Depending on how crazy you plan to get with a more SQ setup that 1000 may not get to far. If you just want something basic then find a source unit that works with all the features you need/want. Then budget out the rest.

    That's a terrible car for audio. Trunk is hard to get any sound out of, and the door speaker locations are awful.

    Only thing on your side is you can get a decent multimedia reciever going in the dash.

    Re: Help me build a sound system for a Toyota Camry 2001 LE.

    The car can sound good. I had a 98 Camry (same layout) that I put Massive CK6 front components in, a single CV Vega12 all ran off an xtant 403A. I left the stock speakers on and heavily attenuated them for fill.

    It sounded good. I experimented with several tweeter locations, you have dash corner tweeters stock, correct?



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Help me build a sound system for a Toyota Camry 2001 LE.

    i could build a nice Boston Acoustics system with that car and budget. front 6.5" components are a must (with mounting adapters).
