  1. Great advice @Heisem ... again! I will certainly take my time ... it’s so tempting to just go rush and install as it’s made so easy to do out here (2hours and I have a sub!). But I will spend some time reviewing the vids and pics as you mentioned to get to a decision. hope to see you out on the dunes in the future... am still at a newbie level but have caught the bug so 🤞🏽
  2. @Heisem Massive thanks for sharing your setup, learnings, recommendations and pics!! Truly helpful and what i do have is audio envy !! thankfully the standard head-unit is the 12" Apple's car play/android head unit so suspect it has a decent power output and processors but your pics and experience has me tempted for a proper amp + upgrades to the 4" mids. Soundproofing was a big lesson you have shared with us all if we change the door speakers! much appreciated. I am going to do some more research, I have found an Alpine Amplified under-seat Sub fully fitted for 1200. its hardly a comparison to your set up but may give me that extra bass whilst keep the trunk free? will share the journey i take and certainly some pics. I have some of the current factory fitted head-unit i will attach to this thread via my phone later this evening.
  3. <<Also posted on the Audio Advice channel/forum>> Hi community, 2 drives into my Carnity experience, I am realizing how disappointing the stock Speakers in the new FJ Cruisers sound as the setup includes 8 speakers but no SubWoofer. tiny sound, rattling doors and just a disappointing experience (that and the tyres are my only gripe - i love the car in every other way) With every future drive with the club being a minimum 2 hours round trip just to the meeting points, I feel the need to improve the Acoustics in the car and add some real bass/subwoofer. Current Setup: 2 small speakers on either side of the Dash 2 speakers in the front doors 2 Speakers in the rear pillar 2 speakers in the roof/headlining above passengers 12" touch screen Android head unit Toyota didn't provide any documentation for the head unit (so i do not know its specifications however will try and search for this form the FJCruiser Forum) i will try and source the manufacturer and specs of the current speakers also if that offers any value My Goal: Not replace the current speakers (only 1 month in and i am not an audiophile (yet) so feel its just the low end i am missing out on) add a subwoofer that will work well with the current set up ideally keep the trunk space empty (have though about under seat Subs?) open to using the space in the trunk if that's a better option budget - good quality sound (not needing competition grade and not looking for budget options) Installation: if the team are looking for a small project i would happily get my hands dirty to learn and do it together otherwise i am looking to buy and install from the same place (as per previous advice on this forum) Help needed: Should I consider the stock FJ Subwoofers as an option? either from one of those scrap yards or second hand? or is there a far better sounding option by buying aftermarket stuff with a custom enclosure any advice on those that have added a Subwoofer to a stock system and the basics i will need (assumed a new Amp + sub and cabling being the only requirements?) - but assume i am wrong as a cross over i suspect is essential but do educate me here can the community help guide me on a recommended set up long shot - any of the group up to help install as a project or advise on suitable locations to source and fit they trust. thanks again

  5. @Gaurav. @Chaitanya D thank you for the trip today! Was a big step up from the absolute newbie session last week! Getting a better feel for the car (finding the psi that matches my driving style, learning to throttle and turn smoother, power of manual gears). Your coaching, support, patience, the stunning landscape/views PLUS no ‘pop out’ made this a truly enjoyable experience! Enjoy your weekend all and look forward to seeing many of you again on the next newbie trip over the coming weeks! have put some pics up on the gallery however having seen what @Umar Kamal shot.... skip past mine and look at the awesome pictures he took!
  6. @Ahab Shamaa 🤜🏽🤛🏽 ... Queens rule (for some nationalities that’s literally true also ) Thank you also for sharing your experiences ... it really helps build confidence knowing the journey others have been on! Looking forward to building on these experiences and learning on each trip! See you soon!.
  7. Thank you @Gaurav ... I did indeed go literal 🤦🏽‍♂️ ... so happy to read this and see you Friday l! @Michael Gazi sorry this time I cannot sacrifice the spot but really hope you make it via the wait list and get to see you Friday also!
  8. @Gaurav if I cannot secure the new AT tires in time for the drive on Friday, knowing I am an absolute novice and running ‘pop out kings’ do you feel it would be better I free up my slot for others and book again once am fitted out with a more tolerant set up for someone of my abilities . I know it’s all about the driver and not the car/mods ... just want to make sure it’s a fun experience for all vs baby sitting a newbie.
