Tundra Speakers

Does anyone know what brand of speakers Tundra puts in stock? I had my truck for 2 months and blew two speakers already. and i don't listen to my music load very often.

Yes, they are indeed VERY crappy paper speakers with very tiny magnets.

That is why I now have Boston Acoustics all around with a single 12'' sub and a couple of amps and a new head unit.

It's sweeeet, and HIGHLY recommended

Don't let magnet size fool you though. Where as I agree, the stock speakers are paper and crap, the stock speakers in the Tundra's (as well as many newer cars) utilize a type of magnet called a neodymium magnet. It used to be that the larger the magnet the more the sound. Not the case now a days. Neodymium magnets produce a very strong, highly focused magnetic field in a small package. The problem is that because of their small size they are poor at protecting the speaker from heat and "blown" speakers, so their power handling capabilities tend to be low.

To solve this some manufacturers have started to produce speakers that have a hybrid neodymium magnet which combines ferrite and neodymium. Here you get the larger, heat resistance of the ferrite magnets with the concentrated magnetic field of the neodymium.

Very well put and Neo is the most expensive magnet material as well.

Hey folks, if I change out the cheap paper stock speakers with some nice Infinity ones for example would I notice a dramatic difference?

I would like to save a little money so I want to change out the speakers first then get a nice head unit later when I have the money to spend it on. Will the stock head unit produce good sound out of some nice after market speakers?

Thanks in advance! You guys are great!

Yes, you will notice a difference in sound quality, but not necessarily volume. Just take some time to get used the new ones when you put them in.

get the HU first. It'll make the stockers sound MUCH better. Then when you can, get the new speakers.
