Re: Requesting guidance: truck stereo upgrade
I thought that picture looked familiar! I have a 2000 Tundra.
As for your speaker question, does your Tundra have the upgraded "Premium" speaker system? I don't even know if they offered that in the 2006 Model, but I know they did with mine. If so, then they'll do you fine. An aftermarket head unit makes a huge difference in sound quality on a stock system.
I personally run this: JVC KW-R500 In-Dash Car Stereo Receiver w/ Pandora Integration and am looking to upgrade to this soon: Kenwood DDX370 6.1" LCD DVD/MP3/USB Car Receiver w/ iPod Support
The JVC is great. Many color options, front Aux and USB, Bluetooth and steering wheel adapter ready. However it does not have Sirius. The Kenwood is well, touch screen. However, it is also Sirius Radio ready with a tuner, which would put you slightly over $300 (Again, this is just my suggestion. I am by no means an expert).
When you upgrade though, be sure to remove the factory amp. Which I know in mine is located underneath the radio, back behind the AC controls. I am wanting to say that the 2006 Tundra might have it in the back seat behind the driver side backseat. You can head over to Tundra Solutions forums to figure that one out.
