    I'm pretty sure... I stuck my ear there and in the corners a handful of times and it seems there is sound coming out. I may pry it open and see what's in there.

    Meanwhile it's killing me.

    Looking at TacoTunes is inspirational, but the speakers they kit up get bad, mediocre at best, reviews everywhere you buy speakers. I like the idea it is plug/play and factory stuff could be put back in, though... I plan on keeping this truck until my 7 year old drives it to death one day. With that, I really shouldn't worry too much about keeping the factory capability intact.

    You definitely have corner speakers. I’d be somewhat surprised if you have a center speaker under that grill.

    So, what speaker can I easily put in the corners? Any clue?

    I believe Memphis Audio makes one that’s 2-3/4” or so that fits there.

    Seems pretty common for guys to install components in the doors, put the tweeter in the sail panel and disconnect those small speakers. That’s what I did and I’m happy with the decision.

    You can do what I did...I took out the corner tweeter speakers and bought the sail panels that have a place for your new tweeters. Some people have drilled holes for their tweeters using their existing ones but seeing how cheap they are to buy I just ordered some from @Roman.

    I bought several speakers today...
    Infinity Kappa 62.11i for the front doors (2ohms)
    Infinity Primus PR5010cs for the back doors (2.7ohms)
    Infinity Reference REF-3022cfx for the center speaker (which I confirmed was there) (3ohms).

    I'm going to see if they are loud enough without an amp upgrade first.

    I probably will end up disconnecting the dash corners as they seem to be the source of the grainy/tinny problem.

    I got quoted today at my local audio shop for 1100 for all four speakers JL brand and an amp. This guy has been around for ages. He told me without the amp you minds well leave the stock speakers. Is this true not a big audio guy. Was just gonna buy everything from james anyway.

    You can easily install the tweeters in the sail panels without spending extra money for new sail panels. Just cut holes to fit the tweeters. Not difficult to do.

    I'm in the same boat, don't know if speakers are enough to make a difference. I don't need volume, I need quality. Regardless, the speakers are def diy-able so I'll knock that out. If I need an amp after, that's a little more involved and I'll figure out how to do it or have someone do it then. I'll post an update after I install the speakers. Might be a week or so.

    The amp gives clearer sound with the new speakers. You will save yourself some time and money by doing both of them at the same time.

    I cant remember i think c1 650 or something like that. But he was pretty stern on the speakers being of no use without an upgraded amp. He said thats a toyota cheap with their radio coponents.

    Image Dynamics Speakers are any good? I can't find them anywhere to go and listen to.

    I think I'll eventually go the amp route. I've heard several times I'd save money to do it at the same time, but I'm not sure how. I may hire someone to put the amp in, but not the speakers. TacoTunes has a video that shows the amp setup very clearly, which makes them an interesting choice. Just not sure about their gear.
