Toyota Innova V Audio


I have an Innova Model V which comes with a decent audio system. Basic spec just mentions "2 Din AM/FM CST 1-CD (with MP3) with 6 speakers". Have been happy with the sound while driving or front seat but audio in the rear seats is poor to day the least.

Would like to know who is the OEM supplier to Toyota for the audio system and what are the options available to beef up the sound in the rear seats. The only speakers in the rear are in the door and they hardly carry any punch.

Nikhil,
Some time back I needed to upgrade my innova audio system too. I checked with the dealer and they told me the HU is panasonic made. I have heard some people say some innova comes with alpine HU. But mine was defenitely panasonic.

My Innova was bought two years ago. Will have to check. Care to share what you upgraded to? Thanks!

Re: Toyota Innova V Audio

Hey! Nikhil it doesn't matter what ever your OE HU is. Since it is a flush mounted HU it is unlikely to have a pre out, thus you'll have to get a 4CH amp with spk line level input . You must also change all your spks to get some body in sound.
All the best.
Cheers.

Re: Toyota Innova V Audio

It Would help if you can give me a budget.
If you add an amp you'll def have to change your spks.
But if you are looking at only decent entry level stuff then IMO the kenwood 8401 is the best VFM available at 7-9K in grey, for spk you can go for components in the front & Coaxials in the rear.
For spk pl do not just look for the big fac brands like sony,blau, alpine jbl etc as there are better options available in the same price bracket from smaller but specialist manu. If would like some recco on spk as well you’ll have to give me options available with your local installers.
All the best.
Cheers.

Nikhil,
I wanted to upgrade it. Spent a lot of time researching. But since I didnt wanted to change the HU, I couldnt find a viable way to upgrade. I sold the innova after a couple of months without doing any upgrade.

Re: Toyota Innova V Audio

neo, thanks for the info. I've been an Infinity fan when it comes to car speakers. After looking at your recommendation, I've been thinking of their Bass Link T to add some beef to the sound in the back. As I said the fronts are not too bad for the moment.

The Bass Link T comes with an amp that accepts both speaker and line level inputs. They are also designed to be "low profile" which is ideal for trucks, SUVs. Would like to know if anyone has had a closer look at these puppies?

Re: Toyota Innova V Audio

Hey! Nikhil you can def upgrade your sound to certain extent even with your existing HU so do not end up selling your car

If you like infinity so be it.It is Jbl's big brother, belongs to the same group & so it fall in Big fac range. I feel there is better value arnd.

I've checked the woofer link. With your existing set up I feel it would be an overkill. Since the bass would end up overpowering the rest of the frequencies. You should go for it if you change the rest of the set up i.e the spk's & amp.

I advice that adding an amp & changing your spk should be your first step as if done right you'll def get very decent sound & bass as well.
All the best.
Cheers.
