Btw, I haven't installed the filler yet. I am currently using the 2DIN dash from TKM. I plan to install it today. I could post pictures of my dash with both TKM 2DIN and custom Filler, if you would like to see the difference.

YES! Please post pictures.

I was going for the first option. I was told that the dash kit would include the new type AC grill which accomodates the 2DIN player perfectly. I certainly don't want something in black sticking out of the dash.

There are two parts to the Dash kit. One is the something like a 2DIN console box which goes in the location of the OEM player and fills the gaps in such a way you can install an aftermarket 2DIN or single DIN player.

Second is the AC grill which surrounds the player itself. That in the car right now is in the greenish beige tone. I was told both come together and would cost me around Rs.1200/- Now you see I could be wrong as I have ordered this part over the phone with Lanson Toyota in Chennai.

I kindly request you to post pictures of your dash so that I can make up my mind about how to fill the gaps. I was also suggested by some to get a leather wrapped piece of wood to fill the gaps on the sides. I wasn't too keen about it though.

flipsyde best thing u can do is just change the dash kit which has trim ring along with the two console/support at back to hold the aftermarket dvd or headunit...as for the trim ring you can get it painted same as the wooden dash colour on dashboard...if u need any help plzz let me know....

Best option would be

You can go for the Corolla Double Din Dash Kit which includes trim ring along with console/support plates at the back which hold the aftermarket Headunit/DVD.

As for the Trim ring if you dont like it Black you can get it painted same colour as wooden so it perfectly blends with your dashboard.

I am not sure what type of 2DIN console TKM offers now. Do check with your dealer if it looks something like the one in the first picture. If yes, I suggest don't use that one.

@Novice - Thanks a lot for those pics. I certainly don't want a Black AC grill. I was just wondering if I would get the same as the above in the standard dash colour.

Isn't the custom filler getting in the way of the HU's tilt function?? Also, if can you tell me if the two black bits (TKM Dash Kit) on the side of the HU are available separately??

EDIT : Are the ones circled in red available separately? If they are can I use them with my existing grill??

No...it doesn't interfere with the tilt functionality. Those side fillers(two black bits) are part of the TKM 2DIN kit. But those can't be used with the OE dash console, they go only with the black console kit.

I would prefer that custom filler also to be in the same color as dashboard, but unfortunately the one I installed is available only in black color.

Default Need rear speaker covers for my 2004 Toyota Corolla

Hi!

I own a November 2004 Toyota Corolla H5. We have had it since new and have been very happy with it all throughout. Since it is parked out in the sun; over time, the rear speaker covers (stock plastic covers) have become brittle and have now broken. The material is more like powder now! Even though it is our spare car, I don't like the way the gaping holes in the speakers look.

I contacted the Toyota dealer (Topsel Toyota - Kolkata), and was told they will have to change the entire speaker rather than just replacing the covers. I am not willing to replace the whole speaker since they work just fine.

Could anyone here suggest where I may find what I'm looking for?

Mods - Please move thread to the appropriate section if it isn't relevant here. Thank you.

Buck up - this is a DIY job! One doesn't get spare grills anywhere. Or - maybe only in the junk markets.

Take out the speakers - they would be (most likely) fixed with 4 screws to the hat rack. Get some speaker grill cloth from the market. Wrap it around the speaker frame tightly, and glue it at the bottom to the frame using Fevicol SR (good old rubber solution). You may need to snip the edges a bit to get it fitting snugly around the curving frame.

If you don't get speaker grill cloth, use your imagination - black dupatta cloth or loose-weave thick curtain cloth ...

Default Budget audio config on Corolla

Hello,

I have a 04 Corolla on which the stock HU is able to play only radio as CD player tends to skip.

So decided for a decent audio build, started acquiring components for a new system.

Presently I have the Pioneer DEH 80PRS HU, I wanted to get other premium components but due to unexpected expenses the audio build is on hold for sometime.

In the meantime can I use the 80PRS with stock speakers till I go ahead with the build ? My concern is that in the manual its clearly written do not use speakers less than 50w & 1-3 Ohm impedance. Corolla speakers seem to be 4-6 Ohm types but wattage is unknown. Its probably not much.

Any temporary low expense suggestion is welcome, as I'll go for the best build later on. I'd like to use the Pioneer HU as it's also loaded with lot of in car features that the ancient OEM hu doesn't have.

Thanks

You can use the HU with stock speakers. FYI my tweeters are hooked to the HU directly.

Make sure the HU is not in network mode.

Also disable all enhancements like Loud etc. ( cant remember if any other settings like bass boost are present since i have used my HU only in network mode)

Dont crank the volume too high.

As long as you take the above precautions you are good to go.

Thank you !

Yes I'll not at loud volumes, I just hope I'll not screw with the HU because of nearly average OEM speakers. Will the wiring need to be changed?
