I would like to start this thread to share and learn from others. This stereo sounded so good not just loud (yeah its got that)but the cleanest sounding system i've ever had. I think several factors played a part.

1. Dynamat soundproofing, quiet road noise first need less amps later
2. Clean install no engine noise in system
3. Clean high quality amps (mine are JL Audio, but many others out there)
4. Great DAC between amps and iPad
5. Use the digital connection, Not 1/8" plug, Not Bluetooth
6. High quality recordings on the iPad

iPad installed in dash look factory... Oh Yeah

Here's mine, Lets see yours! Yes all the steps how it was done whether you did or someone else did it.

First job was sound dampening. The cab of the lightning is a little noisy on the Freeway. I started with one door because i was replacing the speakers, and i was blown away! then the other door wow! So i kept going....

All the pics iIld find of my old Tacoma. Bought a new dash Metra dash kit and fab'd it up to fit a full size ipad. Don't have any pics of painted dash bezel but it turned out real well.just relocated cd player to a blank space iIad and ran USB from deck to ipad. Charged it and let me play songs/movies/pandora/YouTube and all that good stuff:
