I play some older music as well as the new stuff. The old stuff is where the EQ (iphone) helps tremendously. All I am saying is download the free app and give it a go. There are better EQ apps for the iphone too, but cost $$$. You don't know what you are missing until you try something new. (I feel like a crack dealer for crying out loud - "just try it... what can it hurt?... HA!)
What free app are you referring to?

There are multiple free EQ apps for the iphone. I have downloaded and used Stereophonic-EQ, EQ Player, Equalizer Pro, etc.

@daltondrose Been working like a fiend this week, Im hoping to get to the speakers on Tuesday (10/7). Thanks for your post of tips and tricks! How'd you end up getting the brown wire to unlock?

Small pick or tiny screwdriver at top front. Push inside and coax the retention pin up while lightly pulling on the brown wire. Be gentle and patient.

So my system finally arrived today. I thought I would try to install the rear speakers and the dash tweeters tonight to get started. It took several hours to get the rear speaker brackets installed due to the difficulty in getting the screws in behind the panel. Loosening the panel helped a little but still a bunch of time went into finding a dropped screw. They are now installed and look good. Note that the rear speakers are not quite the same as the original dash speakers. The rears use a 22uF capacitor rather than a 4.7uF capacitor when they are in the dash. They should go a couple octaves lower in the rear.

When putting the connectors onto the dash tweeters, note:

RIGHT TWEETER = PURPLE
Purple +
Purple/Black -

LEFT TWEETER = GREEN
Green +
Green/Black -

One more note: If you use the Toyota cargo cover, remember to take the snap straps and put the screw through the hole and mount them under the upper subwoofer bracket with the snap facing down. Then you can pull them out over top of the subwoofer and reattach the cargo cover the same as if you had the factory subwoofer.

I'm not sure where to attach the rear cargo net now that the grocery bag hooks on the right hand side are no longer present.

Mine didn't have the lock mechanism either on the six pin connector but I was able to get the contact out successfully.

You need to look in the front of the connector. A magnifying glass and good light helps. There is a small plastic tab hanging down. You can see it easily in the adjacent position where there is no contact. This tab engages in the contact that you need to remove.

Use a very small flat screwdriver or a thin steel blade to get between the plastic rails that are on each side right above the contact. Then lift the little plastic tab that hangs down. While the tab is lifted, gently pull the wire to remove the contact. It may take a few attempts as it is a bit tricky. Don't pull on the wire until you have the tab lifted up as that will just make friction so that the tab stays engaged.

Nice! I would look around. It really rounds out the system. I found some on eBay for my former '08. I think I paid around $75 for the pair with grills.

Have a look at: http://www.megazip.ru/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/fj-cruiser-1949/gsj10-4748/gsj10l-gkaska-599639/dinamik-7500021

It would appear:
Speakers: 86160-35280 and 86160-35290
Brackets: 86161-35110 and 86161-35120
Bolts: 91631-J0612 (four), 90105-06260 (four)
Grills: 86269-35020-B0 and 86279-35020-B0


Double check the part numbers of course before ordering.
