    Ok guys... I looked everywhere, and nobody had information. So I went looking on my own. Between looking at the wiring diagram, the connector list, and a quick look at Taco Toonz add a subwoofer harness, I think I figured everything out. Holy smokes, I hate electrical everything. I'm a mechanical engineer, so I dabble in electrical, but it is definitely not my forte. All that being said, attached is what I have figured out, but I need some help locating parts.

    There is a 10-pin harness (part # 12C39) that houses all of the speaker wires from the head unit. Based on the wiring diagram for the 2022 Tundra, the speaker wires (+/-) can be identified. (Speaker harness is under the large brown and black connectors)

    Back of HU.jpg

    This is the top of the harness. Picture is for wire identification.

    Top of Connector.jpg

    Picture below is bottom of harness (again for wire identification)

    Bottom of Connector.jpg

    PDF below shows the wiring for speakers and my markup on the connector itself. Does anyone know where I can get the male and female equivalent of the 12C39 connector? I want to build a t-harness to prevent the need to cut factory wiring. It looks like Mr. T Toonz only pulls audio from right rear meaning it would be a mono setup, but the Kicker HS10 has a stereo input. Additionally, I want to connect it to the front speakers since I have heard they have a fuller sound output vs. the rears. Can anyone check my work and make sure I am not on the wrong path? And any help finding these connectors would be amazing!!!

    If it is just for a woofer, you should only need to grab the signal from the two rear woofers in the doors. I agree, using only the right side will not work right for a setup like this (it'd work, but any song that actually makes use of stereo recording will sound weird). You won't need a full range signal for the input, since it will just get filtered out by the amps crossover anyway, so the rear door woofers should be perfect.

    Is this for systems WITH JBL Audio or WITHOUT? I may have some info for you if it is WITH JBL.

    It is without JBL. And thanks for the info on the rear vs fronts. Anyone have any idea on a source for the male and female plugs to build a t harness?

    Hope you get it figured out. I’d love to add a sun to mine.

    What’s wrong with stock?
    Did anyone figure this out yet?

    I’m the duct tape will fix everything type of guy, and was thinking . Couldn’t you use the harness from Mr. T. Tunes and splice directly on that? This would take the guesswork out of finding the correct connectors and as a bonus it’s already pre wired for you.

    I bought the alpine pwe-s8 sub and was planned on connecting it this way.

    Yeah the T Tunes harness works fine. That’s what I used. Plug and play

    Did you use the harness as is and have the sub setup in mono, or did you tap into it to get a right and left signal?

    With the kicker it is used as is. Don’t need the remote turn on. Power, ground then just connect the speaker wire. Should be the same with any powered sub

    I’m intrigued… does this harness provide power ground remote and signal. Or is this harness simple for signal?

    Sorry to bump this but any luck on someone making a complete jumper harness to pull all wires to feed something like an audio control LC7i for a 5 channel set up? I see the Amazon one above and don’t mind trying that but wonder if anything pre-wired.

    from TT? I was looking at their remote turn on/ power harness but wondering if I can just find my own connector/harness separately. Wanting to basically build something similar to LLJ elite harness system on my own

    saw it mentioned on here somewhere, sent a message and they were helpful choosing the right ones I need. A bit on the pricy side but a few people on here swears the quality is way better.
