Great Product

Written by: TJ V from klamath falls, OR on February 12, 2016

Great product! Works well and haven't had any problems. Had to call technical support to make sure it would fit before installing, and their agents were extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend in a 4th gen 4Runner.

Pros: Easy install Works 100%

Cons: N/A

2009 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After much research on the Internet, I decided on this product. It was installed into a 2009 Tacoma with JBL stereo. The head unit was replaced with a Sony aftermarket. No issues with install. Easy instructions. Turned the key and all speakers including factory amp worked. I highly recommend purchasing this product if you're interested in maintaining the factory amp.

Quick shipping.

2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser with JBL sound system, worked perfectly

Written by: Phill Knapp from littleton, CO on January 21, 2016

2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to upgrade my stock 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser with JBL head unit with a Kenwood ddx9902s DVD player. The Axxess TYTO-01, comes with easy to follow instructions, and recognized the car and Kenwood head unit easily. No issues on install what so ever. There is a adjustment so you can adjust the volume level out. I just left it at the position the Axxess TYTO-01 came with and it works just fine. My only complaint is now I realize how crappy the stock speakers are .. I'll be upgrading the speakers soon through Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy Install, No messing with flashing or fighting to get the unit to recognize car or head unit.

Cons: Would be nice if it came directly connected to a stock Toyota wiring harness .. less soldering that way.

Installation and wiring were easy and straight forward. For our installation the the factory amp and speakers were found to be poor quality. Crutchfield was great at allowing return of a lot of the components. We wound up purchasing different speakers and a 5 Chanel amp to power the system.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Super simple to wire into my stereo harness. And the ability to control the power from the amp right on this remote is awesome. I only wish there was a way to adjust the power from the amp after installation other than having to take the headset back out to get to the remote.

Pros: Amazing sound Simple to wire Great control over power of amp

Cons: No way to adjust amp power after installation

2002 Lexus ES300
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wires color coded perfect for an easy installation.. I did all the connections before taking apart the car.. Was simple once the old radio was removed just needed to plug everything together no playing around with wires inside the dash! Make sure you check the volume dial is turned up.. took me a day to realize why the volume was low and distorted when the radio was at max.. Once I turned that little blue dial all was well again... o and make sure the plugs are completely clipped in. otherwise every bounce you'll lose sound.. I needed to wire tie one of the plugs in place..

Pros: Simple

Cons: one of the plugs needed help staying in. the clip on the harness would keep the plug in.. Used a wire tie and no problems since..

Great Sound!

2005 Toyota Sienna
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This interface (unlike the PAC SWI-RC, which I installed at the same time) has clear instructions and is easy to wire and install. Wires are conveniently pre-stripped. Some wires from the aftermarket radio connect to different sides which makes for slightly more of a rat's nest than it strictly needs to be. But on the whole a good product.

Pros:

Cons:

One of the easiest harnesses I have worked with.

2007 Toyota Tundra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I got it and started reading the instructions I was a little overwhelmed at first. I had also bought the steering wheel control kit as well so it felt like I had a mess of wires. After I sat down with my head unit (Kenwood DNX 692) and laid everything out I did a dry run and felt much more at ease. I decided to go with a soldering iron and and heat shrink to cover the soldered pieces. A little tedious but it turned out great. Everything went together and works great

Pros: Colors are well matched to standard colors, instructions are fairly clear, plenty of slack on wires

Cons: Could use some double-sided tape to mount in dash

Confusion with light-green wire

Written by: MikeD from San Marcos on August 27, 2015

2003 Lexus ES300
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions tell me to tape off the light-green wire on the adapter, as it will not be used. On the stereo is a light-green wire to be connected to the parking brake wire sensor. I called tech support and was told to connect it to the light-green wire on the adapter, which I did; unfortunately, this didn't allow me to use the features when the emergency brakes are engaged. I called again as was told by support that the wire was supposed to be connected to the red (with white stripe) wire located above the pivot of my pedal emergency brake. Other than this issue, the install was flawless.

Pros: N/A

Cons: Confusion with light-green wires between stereo and adapter, which are not supposed to be connected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Instructions good, connections worked as necessary - only complaint is that the pieces to crimp the wires together are not included in this kit - why not?! Was hoping for a complete installation without a trip to the hardware store.....

Pros: instructions good, connections worked

Cons: no pieces to connect the wires in the kit?! This needs to be changed or something noted during the order process that these must be purchased separately.

Great except for one issue

Written by: Chado from Vancouver, BC on May 4, 2015

2007 Lexus RX400h there are eight speakers driven by the factory amp (which is a pioneer type D amp) over six outputs. From the TYTO-1 there are four speaker connections from your new headunit to the amp, FL, FR, RL and RR. This is what I expected the TYTO-1 to sort out, the four input to six output issue.... but it did it backwards. Let me explain, from the amp there are six outputs, two outputs drive the left and right 3/4" tweeters and 3" midrange speakers (which are wired in serial), two outputs drive the front door left and right 6x9" woofers and two outputs drive the back door left and right 6.5" speakers. This actually makes for a pretty good setup if it works properly as you have your front six speakers setup up to create a better sound balance. With the factory headunit, I imagine this is what is happening. However, this ability to balance the channels is lost with a new headunit and the TYTO. Instead, because the headunit and the TYTO only allow for four outputs, the Axxess actually controls and rear door speakers and the front door woofers as if they are both rear door speakers!! I realize that without a headunit with a minimum of six speaker outputs, true control of all three channels on the amp is impossible, but i assumed that at the very least the TYTO would be smart enough to pair my front speakers together and not split them apart to be paired with the rears!! Not a smart setup. Btw, always solder your wires.

Pros: Easy setup, instructions were great except for a typo that said 20-pin harness instead of 14-pin harness.

Cons: Pairs front woofers with rear speakers.

perfect

Easy to follow instructions. Pictures were clear and instructions referenced diagrams that made understanding much easier. My radio had two plugs, and the adapter harness only referenced and utilized one.

Pros: Color matched and easy tip follow instructions.

Cons: One wire not used or referenced. Sounds pot adjustment a pain.

Great product, makes installation seamless and eliminates having to cut your factory harness.

Pros: Product is as advertised. At the discounted price this product is worth the money.

Cons: Does not offer enough channels to handle all speakers in my vehicle (Lexus RX) when you adjust the settings for sound from front to rear and left to right certain adjustments do not play sound where it should be. I have checked my installation of connecting the wires multiple times so its not an installation error.

It works!
