    Germaniums in a tundra...

    SO im going to be upgrading my tundra, currently i have 3 8w3's in the back compartment, but they are overpowering the JBL system, so im going to upgrade that as well. After reading this a lot, ive decided to go with the germaniums, but im wondering what should i use for the rear speakers? any ideas?

    You don't really even need rear speakers. Just components up front with a good amp and you'd be rockin'.

    Why do you want rear speakers is the question....

    because the people in the back seat get annoyed with only hearing bass

    Is your Tundra painted yellow and black? does it have a advertisement tent on your roof? Do you have a meter on your dash that calculates fare? Then you shouldn't have people in your backseat =P you wanna transport people? get a van.... a Truck is for you and you only. Get the Germs.

    Re: Germaniums in a tundra...

    I have a set of Germanium CS 265.25's still in the box that I will be installing in a 06 double cab. The wait is killing me, but I have been taking my time deciding on the different components that I am going to use. The double cab is a total sob of an install (especially for subs). I am 99% sure that I will go with a single DLS A7 with the Germs bi-amped (60 watts rms per) and the sub channel to either a single 10 at 2 ohms or dual 8's at 2 ohms. 6spdcoupe has been a big help in the decision making process, as many on this forum will attest to.

    The Germs should fit with minimum mods (1/2-3/4 mdf spacer and washers to space over the window track). I will report back when I finally get everything in.

    By the way, is your Tundra a double or extended cab? If it is a double cab, how did you mount your 8" subs?

    In regards to your question about rear fill, possibly some mid-bass 6-1/2s. If you want full range sound for your rear passengers, I would probably go with the SL 165 coaxial speakers. Lower cost, but at least in the Rainbow family and possibly better timbre matching than using another brand.

    Re: Germaniums in a tundra...

    yea its a double cab, i used the compartments under the rear seat, just seal them up with sound deadener and silicone then make a baffle or buy one and put it on, was really easy. i have a 500/1 for them, and im going to use a 300/2 for the germs. and yes bamaboy the 8w3's are actually pretty loud, i had a 12 W6v2 in there, and the 3 8's are just a little bit louder, Granted both are sealed boxes.

    Edit: Also if you want to you could cut the metal seperating the 2 compartments and add 4 8's, would be tight with the air space.

    As a Tundra owner i say no rear speakers. i can't remember the last time mine were hooked up. I rarely have a passenger back there (access cab), but the few times i have they've never complained.
