    Two 8's, one 10 or one 12?

    Looking to add a little more bass to my 2016 Toyota Sienna It has a factory 10 speaker JBL Entune system with DVD/BluRay and RES First off, I'm not a bass head by any stretch (outgrew that phase a LONG time ago), but I do like nice clean thump (especially when watching movies) Loud is good, but only for me to hear, not everyone sitting in traffic around me. That being said, my main goal is to add a stealthy enclosure and I'm looking at sub options. The amp being used is an NVX MPA1 300w x 1 @ 2 ohms I love these little micro amps as they're super efficient and dirt cheap. My Sienna has a decent sized storage space in the left rear corner that's meant for a removable 8th seat (for 8 seat versions of the van) Since I have a 7 seat version with recliners, it's just an empty space Now, my intention is to create something like this.... A nice clean enclosure that looks like it was meant to be there. Unfortunately, no one makes a drop in stealthbox Not a fan of glass enclosures, so I'm thinking of just making one out of MDF to fit within the space and just trim the entire space with a matching speaker grill cloth cover Anyways, onto the sub choices. In my previous beater, I had a pair of Pioneer shallow mount 8's in downfire boxes that fit under the seat and they sounded amazing for what they were. I still have them, so I'm considering them for the Sienna (a few pix in the space for size reference) Another option is to go with a shallow mount 10 or 12 Since the rest of the system is all JBL, I figure their WS1200 might be a good choice Here are some random pix of another glass build: Which size of sub(s) would you choose and why?

    No Name EBay Android Head Units??

    OK, not my typical post as I've always sworn against any head unit that wasn't any of the big names (Sony, Kenwood, Alpine, Pioneer, etc.) 😑 Thing is, recently, a Co-Worker of mine showed up with an EBay Android HU in his Golf and I must say, it was rather impressive 😲 Crystal clear picture, crisp touch screen and WAY more features than my old Sony XAV 712HD has to offer 😕 Best of all, it actually looked like a factory 😎 Anyways, I was so impressed with it that I started looking into one for my next daily beater. Thing is, I'm very leery of no name brands and the only one I recognize that seems to have all the features I want is from Pyle 😒 Now, in my eyes, Pyle has always been nothing more than FleaMarket brand garbage that only people of Wal-Mart would buy, but after seeing the specs, I don't see anything from the big names that comes close for the price 😶 The model I'm looking at specifically is the PLDAND110 It's a Double DIN with a 10" tablet like screen https://www.pyleaudio.com/sku/PLDAND110/Android-Stereo-Receiver-and-DVR-Dash-Cam-System-Kit,-10%E2%80%99%E2%80%99-Touchscreen-Display,-Google-Play-Store,-Wi-Fi,-Bluetooth-Wireless,-CDDVD-Player,-Double-DIN Specs from their site: Headunit Receiver: Hi-Res 10.1’’ -inch Digital Display Built-in Android OS Computer Integrated Google Play Store Download Apps Surf the Web Play Games Support Download of Google Maps & GPS Navigation Apps Touch Screen Control Operation Bluetooth & WiFi Wireless Streaming User-Friendly UI Interface Full HD 1080 Support Digital File Playback: Audio, Video & Image Files USB Flash & SD Memory Card Readers CD/DVD Player 16 GB Built-in Flash Memory AM/FM Radio with 30 Station Memory Video Aux (RCA) Input/Output Connector Jacks Rearview Backup Camera Support Audio Aux (RCA) Input & Pre-Amp Output Jacks Interface: Subwoofer Output 2 x USB/DVR/3G Antenna Customizable EQ Audio Controls Android OS Computer: Touchscreen 'Tablet-Style' Functionality WiFi Wireless Streaming Ability Surf the Web & Download Apps 3G WiFi Mobile HotSpot Capability Smart Device MirrorLink/AirPlay Support OS Version: Android 6.0, Octa-Core ROCKCHIP 1.5GHz Bluetooth Connectivity: Built-in Bluetooth for Wireless Music Streaming Built-in Microphone for Hands-Free Calling Convenient Contact List Import Ability Digital Phone Dial Pad Display Bluetooth Version: 4.1 What's in the Box: Android Stereo Receiver Bluetooth Microphone Remote Control DVR Dash Cam Backup Camera Power & Wiring Harness (2) USB Extension Cables Mounting Brackets & Hardware DVR Dash Cam: Interior Front Windshield Mountable Hi-Res Full HD Video Recording Angle Tilt & Rotation Adjustable Extra Compact & Unobtrusive Design Simple Connection to Headunit via USB Easy File Saving & Sharing Rearview Backup Cam: Marine Grade Camera Construction Waterproof & Fog Resistant (IP67 Rating) Low Light Performance (0.2 LUX) Built-in Distance Scale Lines Preferably Mounted Above the Rear License Plate Tilt Adjustable Camera Lens Angle True Color Reproduction Resolution: 656 x 492 Pixels Viewing Angle: 170 Degree Power Supply: DC 12V 200mA RCA Video Connector Dimensions (L x W x H): 10.0'' 1.3’’ x 1.3''-inches Receiver Technical Specs: Double DIN Size Universal Standard Power Output: 4 x 80 Watt (320 Max.)

Just curious, but does anyone here have one of these things? Been searching for reviews on it, but can't seem to find any
