The perfect upgrade to my stock radio on a 2016 4Runner Limited. The bracket setup fits the sub and amp perfectly under the passenger seat. Bass upgrade is a night and day difference. Paired it with an Alpine R-S69.C.

This made a tremendous difference in the sound performance of my 2019 4Runner. I haven't yet upgraded from the factory speakers, but the extra juice across 4 channels plus added low ranges from the sub make an incredible difference in the sound. The sub's remote is a great feature to have as well giving you an easy way to lower or crank the bass. Rather than mount on the console next to the driver's seat as recommended, I drilled a small hole into the lower compartment panel and fed the wire through so that the remote knob is on the dash under the head unit. I've never done any kind of install like this before. The bids I got locally were ~$275 so I decided to go it alone. The instructions are pretty clear though I think they'd benefit from some clearer photographs rather than small drawings. Definitely worth the optional $5 panel removal kit from Crutchfield. Removing the panels, head unit, consols, kickboards, passenger seat etc., was surprisingly MUCH simpler than I had anticipated. Feeding the harness up to the head unit was also not too difficult. Everything is plug-and-play so connecting to the head unit was very straightforward. There is no need for splicing wires or soldering etc. Plus all of the cables are labeled taking out any guesswork as to where to connect. The package arrived very well-protected, everything was organized and labeled. I think it was well worth the savings on a professional installation.
Pros: Great sound, killer bass, nice remote feature, straightforward installation
Cons: Instructions could have clearer images and wiring diagrams are a bit vague.

Purchased from Crutchfield so awesome experience as always! My 2019 4Runner TRD OR came with the upgraded Entune Premium GPS Navigation Radio and a bunch of very cheap paper cone speakers. So I decided to do a cost reasonable, fairly simple, upgrade while keeping the stock HU. My upgrade included: Front Dash - Kenwood Excelon KFC-X2C 2-3/4" midrange speakers Front Doors - Infinity Kappa 93ix 6x9" speakers Rear Doors - Infinity Kappa 62ix 6 1/2" Rear Hatch - Infinity Kappa 62ix 6 1/2" Alpine PSU-300FRN The Alpine "all in one" amp and powered sub was truly plug and play - only slight bit of pain was the need to fish the power cable through the firewall and connect to the battery. Taking apart the dash and pulling the radio, removing the passenger seat and doing the install with some testing for proper amp gain settings took about 3 hours (Includes me listening to about 45 mins of different music). Since all speakers receive all frequency's I decided to put in full range speakers in all locations. The rear door and hatch panels needed a very slight trimming to accommodate the Kappa 6 1/2" (removed about a 1/4" from the door panels circular cone that sits over top the speaker). I am very happy with the outcome - the system is much, much cleaner and very natural sounding (I like soft dome tweeters). The system has very nice depth, and the efficient Infinity's with the additional power from the Alpine mini-amp works really well.

System Overview Vehicle/Trim - 2013 Toyota 4runner Trail Receiver - Toyota Entune with Navigation system; without JBL audio system Front Doors/Dash Corners - Focal Integration ISS 690 Rear Doors - Focal Performance PC 165 Tailgate - Focal Performance PC 165 Note: Party Mode still works The KTP-445U 4-channel amplifier made the Focal speakers come alive. The PWE-S8 subwoofer added much needed bass to the system. The recommended 'SUB GAIN' stetting for OEM head unit was a little high so I opted for the aftermarket Head Unit (9 O'clock).
Pros: 4Runner- specific mounting bracket 4Runner-specific wiring PWE-S8 cast metal enclosure
Cons: Alpine's wholesale packaging for the PSU-300FRN uses bubble wrap which does not sufficiently protect the mounting bracket. Alpine should switch to retail packaging with protective foam.
