    Am I the only dumbass that can’t follow the wiring diagram provided on the first page of this thread? I’ve installed an amp and subs myself on every vehicle I’ve owned, that’s pretty straightforward. These harnesses are like 50 wires and I’m lost as a goose in a hailstorm

    Hey.... I'm a complete newb with wiring and just installed the alpine this morning. Couple things to know that took me a second to realize. 1st, don't think of the harnesses as a 1 harness to 1 connection. You'll have wires crossing harnesses.

    Make sure to have the attachment diagram that maps tundra to alpine, not just the embedded diagram in earliest pages.

    2nd, the newest autoharnesshouse connections have different colors than OP. Mostly makes it easier and all the speaker connections match color to color.

    Feel free to message me and I'll help wherever I can

    Does anyone know what the plastic vent looking pieces are under the tundra front seats? I have a 2018 crewmax for reference. Are they needed?

    I was wanting to install a small powered sub under the driver side.

    Its the floor vents for the heating/ac

    If you are putting an amp rack above it, just have feet on the back so air can move out the vent.

    I'm worried it would rattle against that vent and drive me nuts.

    Sorry about the late reply -- have not been on the forum in quite some time..
    I like the cerwin sub, but it would be better with a remote adjustment as sometime I need to throttle the bass up or down. I slide it under the drivers seat from the back. It fits flush with the back of the seat

    Kicker 10 here & couldn’t be happier. It’s pretty damn loud too. I threw mine back behind the rear 40% passenger seat. There’s a small metal knob there that holds the unit in perfectly. I wrapped that with some foam so it doesn’t rattle.

    I feel the same as above tho, I need to run the gain adjustment dial up front for easy changes on the fly

    I was debating between the Kicker and Cerwin. I ended up installing the Cerwin this morning. I need to get it dialed in but so far it's fine for $200. Mine came with a remote knob. I need to mount it but have the wires run and connected. Might try to mount in the cup holder like taco tunes does.

    I realize this is a little old, but has anyone here used the 445U with a 2nd gen tundra non jbl and no amp. Are there any wiring harnesses out there to help avoid cutting up the factory harness? TIA

    Mine will be here Friday, I'll let ya know. All the others I've found, including the ones suggested elsewhere here,, aren't truly plug and play and several aren't even the right plugs.
