#120 of 210 2006 Tacoma Factory Speaker Arrangement
Jun 02, 2006 (6:46 am)
2006 Tacoma factory 6 speaker set-up, not the JBL system. The standard poor quaility Toyota set-up. Can not believe the low end speakers, magnet is about the size of a coke bottle top. The Toyota web site out lines the arrangement of the JBL speaker system in the Tacomas. It shows 2 tweeters upper front doors, two sub's lower front doors and 2 full range rear doors with an amp and sub back seat.
Question is, does the factory speaker system follow the same arrangement as the JBL. Are the front door speakers subs or are they standard full range speakers. Looking for the proper replacement speaker set-up. Anticipate using the taco spacers and accesories for the speaker upgrade. taco mentions replacing the 4 speaker with full range 3-ways front and rear. I further anticpate replacing the factory door tweeters with the JBL version to prevent any major fabrication issues. They have to be better than the factory version. Intresting taco does not offer any accessories to replace the tweeters.
Any info would be great.

The stock speaker magnets are small because they are high strength neodymium magnets. But I still agree that they are weak.
The stock sound system in a double cab or access cab has: A tweeter and 6x9 in the front door. The rear door has a 6.5". If you have the JBL system then there will be an amplifier and a single 8" subwoofer behind the rear seat on the passenger side. I've heard it, and it's not that impressive. You would be better off by not getting the JBL system and then add an aftermarket sound system.
I replace the so-called stock tweeters with B&G high-end home audio ribbon tweeters. I replaced the stock 6x9s with Dayton Audio RS180 7" woofers in all 4 doors.
The crossover is mounted on the door temporarily. I will soon switch to an Active speaker arrangement (no passive crossovers).
#122 of 210 JBL Stereo Headache
Jun 24, 2006 (9:45 am)
I just bought an 06 double cab with the JBL system. I want to replace the head unit with a pioneer avic Z1 with navigation. I wanted to avoid pulling the truck all aprt to change speakers and all sorts of things. Now I hear that the jbl amplifier is turned on by a data line and that it will not work with an aftermarket radio. The local audio shop wants to bypass the amp that they don't even know where it is, install some great big amp, cut plastic behind the rear seat, and install all new speakers. I hope this is not the answer. I like the JBL sound and want to do minimal alterations to the truck. I know I'm not the first person with this problem, so somebody please help.....

The amp is built into the sub enclosure behind the seat. I'm not sure about the other issues the the JBL stuff.

Hey guys. I just bought a 2005 Tacoma. It had an after market dash kit with after market CD player. I want the factory dash kit and CD player. I'm willing to trade someone my after market dash kit and CD player for the factory dash kit.

I have the original CD player for the 2005 Tacoma. I just upgraded to an Alpine IVA-W200 DVD screen last May. The thing is, it's not a dash kit, the dash is actually a part of the CD player. I tried to tinker with it to separate it (I left a CD in there, but it was a burned copy, so no big deal) to try and get the CD out, but no luck, it's on there tight. Is that what you're looking for? To put the original stereo back in? Or a dash kit that looks like the factory?

OK guys, I'm going nuts. Why did Toyota have to make it so annoying to change out the speakers in the Tacomas? I wanna get some component speakers for the front doors, but apparently none of the ones I see at crutchfield.com don't fit. I heard about some brand called MB Quart, but again, I have no idea if they're any good. Does anyone know if the speaker brackets at tacotunes.com works for any speaker, or certain ones? Also, any ideas on GOOD speakers to put in the Tacos? I want to replace all of them. Either component 6x9's that would also replace the tweeters, or 6x9's, tweeters, and 6.5" speakers for the rear.

You can fit pretty much any speaker under 8" in the doors of the 05/06 Tacoma. You just have to have an adapter plate to make the bolt holes match up. I made my own from MDF. Check out TacoTunes.com if you want to buy them.

Thanks for the reply. I'm looking for the original CD player with the original dash piece that's a part of it so it will look like it did from the factory. When I purchased the Tacoma it had an after factory dash kit in it along with an after factory CD player. You interested in selling or trading?

Hello pb2themax, I am newbe and own a 06 toyota tacoma double I would like to put in the same radio in the truck.. I would like to know where did you get the dash from web or store?? and how did you run the antennas after you went thru the third Break light,did you down the back wall then thru under the door jams?? where did you mount the sirius box? Is the GPS and the Sirius antenna next to each other on the roof of the truck?? Do you have any pics that show how you did it?? I am very interested in how you have done the install of the radio on the truck.
