I am not an audiophile; this setup sounds good enough for my kind of music. Do not know about the preamp out.

As an aside, nowadays off market headunits come with a harness that lets you control them from existing steering wheel controls. So that should not stop you.
My delivery of a ZX AT is planned next week. While inquiring about fixing an amp in the showroom , the accessory guy informed that since the HU lacks pre-amp output he cant fix one. If Amp is fixed with speaker level inputs then there will be a humming sound . Are you guys facing any such issues ?

I'll check with Sachin's auto shop /Audio planet as mentioned in earlier posts.

Cost was 40k + 5k for camera, speakers another 10.
Purchase and installation from Lanson Toyota Chennai. They ordered and got the HU from Pioneer on request. Prices however have gone upwards for the same model when checked with a friend.
Overall perfectly happy with its performance. Connect Android Auto and map is on the dash, so no loss of precious view area. Plays almost all video formats from the usb, have not tried AUX. Optional is rear seat entertainment system. Phone connectivity and CarPlay are added advantage, but no maps in CarPlay India is a spoiler. Hope info is relevant.
DRIVE SAFE.

Default Amazon Music

I have been using firetv stick with the 8890BT in my Crysta since a while. Fed up with the local FM stations I was using the tuner app in firetv to listen to some good international music stations, then came amazon music and it is now awesome. There is a dedicated wifihotspot in the car for the firetv and everything is hidden from view.

Did you get this? If not I would suggest not.
I had the VW equivalent of these speakers installed in the Polo GT, while it was better than stock it is not worth the price. In short I wouldn't buy it again.

But wouldn't it be simpler to use the dedicated Amazon Music app and stream audio via BT from your phone? Or, am I missing something? Does the FS (I don't have one) also stream videos? Also, how do you connect it to your head-unit?

PS - I have a Pioneer HU in my car hence asking.

Looks I read this late, got only last week. Yes, the are Ok-ish but that's primarily due to being driven by the stock system. I have not got the amplifier, given my requirements. No wires were cut or extra holes drilled, it was plug and play. Installer, riveted back the new speakers, unlike old days when they will screw or tighten using nuts. I see a lot of improvements, things are changing for better

I did not want the phone to be tied up to the entertainment system and thus the decision to go for separate hotspot as well as firetv stick. This would also allow me to watch videos and with it's inbuilt screen mirroring option I can mirror the phone screen wirelessly. Tried it and works good for youtube videos.

Connection is via HDMI.

I only saw your post when i visited this thread after so many days, else would have informed earlier.

Focal is better than OE but i feel for the price it could be better. I also ran it without the amp in the Polo directly off RCD510 headunit. The install is a breeze and is as good as OE that I liked about the Focal.

For the Crysta I bought a set of 4 Toyota spec MDF adapters from Innovative Solutions and they bolt into the door using the existing three holes.

For speaker wires metra adapters are available it clips to stock harness and convert to a pigtail with two female spade connectors.
