Thanks.
I am using an iPad with iPad holder for this purpose. In the age of You Tube and Netflix, kids are not really interested in watching downloaded content.

Default Re: ICE upgrade for the Toyota Innova Crysta

I have an Innova crysta (1 year and 30k) and have loved every drive in it.

I have been wanting to do a DIY upgrade of the rear speakers as I have no knowledge about ICE's at all I don't know where to start. I have read on the basics but there is nothing similar for this particular vehicle.

I want to upgrade just the speakers while retaining the OE head unit. I wanted to know where to start.

You can start slow. Before you upgrade the speakers listen to a few. Most OEMs have included quite a bit of equalization in their OEM HUs to compensate for the shortcomings of the OEM speakers. Sometimes just changing speakers may make the sound worse.

Hence my advice would be to listen to a few Innovas that have upgraded speakers or at least ask your local ICE shop if they can demo some speakers for you in your car.

I have changed stock speakers of both the Crysta I have. There is good improvement in sound quality. However if you are an audiophile, suggest you to get an Amplifier and a subwoofer. While the stock HU is good, it generates very less power to drive the speakers. Aftermarket HU makes the better out of speakers. I have Rockford speaker paired with Blaupunk HU in one and stock HU and Infinity speakers on other.

Sir, which option do you think is more efficient, I want to ask if replacing the OEM HU is worth the money and time.
Thanks in advance

I would suggest you to go with Stock HU and add amplifier+good set of speakers. Aftermarket HU, though they are feature loaded, do not fit well on Innova Crysta. Add a sub woofer if you need that extra bass.

That is incorrect. With the right dash kit after market HUs are a perfect fit, no problems whatsoever. Infact any HU without Android Auto and Apple Carplay is useless in this day and age in my opinion.

Suggest you to go and try. Characteristic of each speaker is different and you can pick one to suit your taste.

Sorry, I meant to say they don't look aesthetically good as the stock unit. So it is upto one whether you want a good looking unit or more feature/better performing unit. I haven't come across dash kit which make a 7 inch aftermarket HU fit well into a 9 inch slot of Innova crysta. Please let me know if one such is available.
