Well guys, I'm gonna get me an aftermarket HU in my 06 4Runner. I don't have the JBL stamped anywhere on the doors or such. What do you guys have or would recommend? I would like to put this in the back, don't wanna take up too much room in the back, though.

My budget is $800-$1000 with everything.

I do have a couple of headunits picked out.

Just want Bluetooth for sure and I don't need Nav or HD Radio.

Amps I have no clue.
I do have an one 12" Memphis Mojo, its pretty big that use to be in my car, I the bass is awesome on that, but don't wanna go that big.

I did stopped by 2 audio shops today. First one said, I should keep my sub box and the Sub in it. It's a great setup. He offered me a Kenwood 491 HU installed be $399 and a Memphis amp for $250. With the installation of the amp and all the wiring for subs and etc, it be $794.

2nd one was a Sundown Audio dealer. He also said I should keep the sub box, that's a great setup, also. He told me you can get one 12" X Sundown Sub and put it in that box. It'll be better then that Mojo you have in it right now. Also with a Kenwood/Pioneer HU installed. Everything will be about $800. If I trade my Mojo for the Sundown X, including the amp.

So should I trade up and get the Sundown? Or just keep the Memphis setup, I have currently?
Thanks!

Forerunner is not going to be as bass friendly as your car was. So you may just want to keep the sub/enclosure you have rather than down sizing.
How scared/confident are you in installing your own stuff?
I like crutchfield for head units as they give you all the stuff you need, instructions for your vehicle, the product is legit with full warranty...
I like both of the headunits. Pick which ever one you like best.

I am a big fan of Sundown audio. That said, unless you are buying a huge sub amp to power that X, save the money from changing out the sub and put it toward the rest of the system.

If you want more output capabilities from the non sub speakers... Crossover functionality rated power+ decent amp. Can be an upgrade down the road.
Four channel amp:

Also a potential upgrade to look at is replacing the front speakers to something more substantial and better sounding.
