A Devils Lake man approached us about fixing up his current aftermarket sound system in his 2010 Tundra 4-door. When it came to us it was sounding under the weather, so I went to work. A pair of DB Drive amplifiers, Focal rear 6.5″ speakers, and a JL Audio Stealthbox subwoofer were kept, and a high end Pioneer in-dash touch screen radio ran the show. Our Toyota Tundra Stage 3 3-way component speakers were chosen to give a major boost to the overall balance and staging and imaging.
The radio outputs and the amplifier’s outputs were checked with an oscilloscope and a test CD to find the maximum safe volume position and proper gain settings. This alone can make a big improvement to the sound and it also helps to ensure the speakers will last for years to come. Your car audio shop must have the right tools and training for the job, just like your auto mechanic.
Once it was all wrapped up the demo left an impression of horn players floating above the dash. It sounded phenomenal.
