Wanted to post my pictures of the system I recently installed in my 2010 Tundra CM. The install included:

- 1 Kicker 12 CompRT wired to 1ohm
- 1 Precision Power Phantom 1000.1. Pushing 1000wRMS x 1 @ 1ohm (14.4v)
- Front Stage: Polk DB6501
- Rear Fill: CDT Audio ES-6Cfx
- Speaker Amp: Precision Power Phantom 900.4 145wRMS x 4 @ 4ohms (14.4v)
- 1/0 amp wire kit
- AudioControl LCQ-1
- 4ft x 2ft 3/4'' MDF board and carpet for custom amp rack
- Most importantly a bottle of Astroglide that makes fishing wires infinity*infinity times easier.

The Amp rack was pretty simple and a good place to mount your amps in case you did not want to do it on the floor. I have my seats out often so did not want to waste floor space with amps. Plus I think it looks cleaner and a good thing to attach your sub box to. Also it makes tuning and amp access much much easier.

I ran the 1/0 power wire down the drivers side and behind the plastic rear wall. I ran it into a distro block back there and had 2 4awg outputs to each amp.

Pics attached. Let me know if anyone has any questions about install or running wires. I think I have linked this site about 100 times already but here it is again. ****If you are in the planning stages of your system this site is INVALUABLE on planning for wire/fuse size and runs. Love this site and your install will go much smoother and less fires in your truck!

That looks great! Does the site you linked have how-to's on building a mounting board like you've got there? I'm in the process of researching and building my system. Thanks!

No but it is pretty easy. Just go to Home Depot and buy some 5/8 or 3/4'' MDF board. I just took a few measurements and basically drew out the shape I wanted and use a table saw to cut it out. Then just staple on some carpet and you are done.

And then I pulled out the rear wall plastic piece and put it back together outside the truck. I then attached the MDF amp rack to the plastic with a few lag bolts and washers and nuts, then placed it back into the truck as 1 piece.

Yeah kept factory stereo.

It def sounds 100 times better than before. However, I have had several other systems in other cars running off Alpine head units and I feel like there is a little something missing with using the stock HU. I guess thats to be expected though and can certainly live with it since I get to keep the stock look.
