#278 of 317 2006 Scion Xb audio

I want to retain my OEM Pioneer receiver and upgrade the door speakers as well as add tweeters and a subwoofer. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you are sticking with the OEM stereo and not adding an amp, then you need something efficient.
I would probably go with some component speakers - put the mids in the doors in the place of the factory speakers and try the tweeters in the dash in place of the factory speakers. Or you would surface/flush mount the tweeters in the doors or even in the a-pillars.
I am partial to Polk components, so I would look at the db series - the new db5251 set is 93db. Bostons sound good too, but they are normally a bit less efficient. You should go listen and see what you like.

any one here order the dealer option armrest? I think it list for $129, the other option I was curious about is the overhead console, is it worth it?
#282 of 317 TRD Parts?
Dec 18, 2007 (3:18 am)
I'm just wondering how many of you guys/gals have TRD parts?
I have '07 CSM tC with Sports Exhaust, Cold Air Intake, Front Strut Tie Bar, Lowering Springs (not installed), Rear Sway Bar (not installed), and Struts (on order.)
I know I could of went for cheaper but I figured if this car is finance through Toyota and I still wanted the stock look so I went with TRD. No problems (knocking on wood) People think I'm crazy for going with TRD and getting them through my actual dealer. I only do it for looks and personal enjoyment (I don't race: I'm not lying. State Troopers are very sneaky and strict here in Wisconsin. But I would like to take it to the local drag strip next summer just to see how it performs.) I figured it will be personally worth to keep as summer, hobby car down the road. Or as I call it "My pride and joy."
I do think it's funny that every Scion car show I've been at. I have the "Dealer salespeople" staring at my car for the longest time while the other owners just do quick look and walk away.

TRD parts ARE very expensive but they are of excellent quality and are engineered for the car. Many aftermarket parts for Scion, especially on eBay, are junk (and some are very good, to be fair).

And that's why I went with TRD for the quality.

www.modifymyscion has some cool stuff and good prices (shipping is in the price already). I bought some Greddy bars for my 2005.

Anyone have the TRD shocks, springs, or swaybar on your '08 xB? Did it make much difference in the ride? How about the handling?
