So, with the social distancing going on, and with me being in self quarantine, I thought what better way to spend my time at home than installing some new sound in my tundra.

My plan is to keep the factory head unit and install sound dampening, add new speakers, a sub, an amplifier, and the rockford fosgate DSR1. Crutchfield and Amazon are still open, so I have all the parts ordered and delivery has started.

Amp wiring kit arrived today, so I started with that. I have power ready to go, just waiting for some more parts to arrive.

Going to start sound deadening the back wall tomorrow.

cheers,

Wow, I was sitting here contemplating the exact same thing on my 2020 ! I am anxious to hear about your DSR1 experience, I have heard mixed reviews on it. People seem to either love it or hate it. Keep us posted on the progress !

Toyota sound systems suck, even the wife's 4Runner JBL system isn't that good.
I just finished up my system. Depending on your cash flow and how far you depend to take it there are some really good options on now.

I kept my head unit and ran my high outputs to an AudioControl (SkyHigh has them on sale right now) Matrix Plus then to two amps. I have Sinfoni mids and highs for the front and Deaf Bonce and Sundown for rear doors. If you want the best for you money go look at Deaf Bonce from down4sound. They are 15% off now and are amazing. I did two JL PowerWedges under the back seat.

I was doing Alpine amps but upgraded to Arc amps.

You might want to upgrade your battery, XS is the two I put in. Depending on your Amp pull.

These are the sites that I have used for all my stuff. Oh NVX has great OFC cable for amps and speakers.

Don't know if any of this helps or not, just love doing stuff like this and wanted you to have the info.

Well, step 1 complete. DSR1 and amp installed. All good, it is really a pluG and play install! I wired the factory speakers to the amp using the factory speaker wiring just to be able to test and make sure the dSR1 was working properly. It is, all head unit functions working, steering wheel control working and Bluetooth working for music and phone. The perfect tune app also connects and controls the DSR1.

I have to say, the factory jbl amp is the weak link in the OEM JBL system. I have not tuned the pioneer amp yet, just set crossover to 80 and gain to ‘normal’. The factory speakers and sub sound noticably better running off the new amp.

Too cold and rainy to continue. stay tuned.
