    Looking for some friendly advice.

    So i have a 2013 4runner Trail edition w/ 6x9's in the front doors and 6.5's and some type of tweeter's in the dash (all stock just telling you so you know the sizes) Im thinking of getting a JL 10"w3v3 sub and was looking at either Infinity 9632cf speakers or JBL GTO938. thats about as far as i have gotten theres a JL amp i was going to get to run the sub but im sure its quite pricey. also im not on the tightest budjet. im trying to get some nice quality stuff. So can anyone steer me in the right direction? amps? thanks in advance.

    Re: Looking for some friendly advice.

    You could make baffles for the frt doors and use 6.5 components there. Then coaxes in the rear also you'll need to deaden the doors to get the speakers to sound good Anyway do you have goals for the new system and possible a budget then we can reccomend some nice equipment

    Re: Looking for some friendly advice.

    Well like i said I'm not on the tightest budget i really dont have a fixed one. i willing to drop around 1200-2000$ i guess? haha i know that doesnt help much im sure. For the doors whats the best thing to deaden the sound? back when i last had sounds it was dynamat. I dont think i will be doing much of this myself but i want to get the materials then take it to a shop n tell em exactly what i want so i dont get the good ol screw job.

    Re: Looking for some friendly advice.

    what you listed + the ppl 5 channel amp that mylows recommended would be fine for a beginners system and should cost you less then 600 shipped use the rest to buy sound deadener (either second skin or any cheap thick mat like audio technix, knukonceptz, shok industries). une make a custom enclosure for the sub, get all your wiring kits, and do the big 3 upgrade(google this up) with 0 gauge wire and your golden

    If you spend money on too high quality of equipment with less money and effort into the install, its gonna sound crappy. Not to mention your going to need sound processors or active capable head units if you want to unlock their real potential.




    09 Sienna Subs : 4 hdc3 18s c pillar below windowline Sub amp: ampere tfe 8.0 at half ohm.
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS Mids/Highs amp: PPI 900.4
    Front stage: 3 way active front stage with Massive Audio CKX tweets, alpine type R 6x9 midrange in doors + Crescendo PWX 10s in the kick
    320 amp Singer alt. 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    Re: Looking for some friendly advice.

    ok note taken. I wont skimp out on the details of the install and thats a big reason why i came here is because im not going to be doing it myself so i need some veteran advice so i can walk into my sound shop n not get jerked around. You mentioned sound processors, where to start with those? Googled the big 3 and yah im sure i will need a Cap of some sort and 0 gauge wiring is a no brainer. Thank you for the advice.

    Dont get a cap. Do the big 3 and if your still getting voltage drop put a 2nd battery in.
