    Default 2001 Tundra factory stereo

    I have searched the forums and have not found answers to my questions. I am getting ready to do the complete stereo upgrade.

    Is there a factory amp that I need to bypass? Where is it?

    Are there crossovers for the factory tweeters? Can the tweeters be replaced easily?

    Is there a 'recommended' component speaker system that others have had success with?

    Please help out a new member and Tundra owner.

    Thanks,

    Jlupicki

    Yep. It is behind the A/C controls. If you pick up a Scosche adapter harness model TA02 the connections will be a snap.

    Kinda. There is a little capacitor on the tweeter that serves as the crossover, but there is no separate crossover in the amp, or head unit, etc. So, yes they can easily be replaced with a new component tweeter.

    That is a tough one to answer. I use Focal Polyflex components and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Others have had great success with MBQuart, Boston Pros and Infinitiy comps.

    That will depend on your budget and installation skills mostly, because you only have about 2 3/8" of available mounting depth...unless you start modifying things muwahahaaaaaa. **HERE** is a nice thread for reading up on comps.

    What head unit do you have in mind?

    Thanks for the info JnEsPappa. Is the factory amp something a person would want to remove, not just bypass? Is there a manual I can buy or information in the forums about how to remove the door panels?

    I am not a specification crazed audiophile. I am looking at a Pioneer DEH-P8600MP for the head unit. I am also living in a small market so the internet would be my only source for high end exotic equipment. I need to go with what I can actually hear at the audio store.

    I am considering Infinity component speakers. I am also considering the Q Logic sub that goes on the passenger side under the back seat.

    Thanks for doing that, dude. Start a thread and I'll put it up top in the A/V forum with a "sticky".

    There is plenty of info. on that with pictures and all. I think it is well worth the cost of the TS membership to gain access to.

    You could easily leave the amp in place, but if you are considering selling your OEM radio, you should sell it as a package with the amp.
