Are you tired of your basic 4 channel sound system in your Toyota Hilux 8th Gen? Are you looking to enhance your driving experience with better sound quality, CarPlay, and Android Auto? Look no further! Our Toyota Hilux 8th Gen Stereo Upgrade is the perfect solution for you.


Before the upgrade, the basic 4 channel sound system lacked a subwoofer, CarPlay, and AndroidAuto. The volume output was low, and the speakers distorted on bassy songs. But with our new setup, the 8″ Kenwood wireless CarPlay/Android Auto touch screen has been installed, and all speakers have been replaced. In addition, a 10″ 300W RMS slim subwoofer has been installed in a Toyota fit-box, and the 4-door soundproofing has been done. A mini digital speaker and subwoofer amplifier were also added to the system.


One of the biggest challenges we faced during this project was the limited space in UTEs, making it difficult to choose the right subwoofer. However, our team was able to modify the space behind the rear seat to fit a true sealed subwoofer in a nice slim enclosure. Despite its small size, this subwoofer produces a big power output, making it perfect for this Toyota Hilux stereo upgrade.


Once the subwoofer was sorted, the rest of the installation was an easy task. The 8″ Kenwood head unit was installed, which was made specifically to fit this Hilux model, resulting in a seamless solution. Wireless CarPlay was also added to the system, making it easier for drivers to access their favorite apps and music.


Next, all four doors were soundproofed, new speakers were fitted, and the system was connected to the amplifier. The entire system received a clean separated signal from the new head unit using the RCA outputs and was tuned with the Kenwood DSP processor. The result? Crystal clear sound quality and the perfect balance of bass, treble, and midrange.

As a final touch, the subwoofer remote control was mounted in an empty button slot in the dashboard, making it easy for drivers to adjust the bass levels on the go.
