Lyndon and I both had stints with the Scion FR-S. But I was lucky enough to drive the first generation TC back in the day. OK- so it may not be as cool for car guys as the FR-S, but the TC trumps the FR-S as far as practicality, especially when the white stuff starts falling from the sky.
More importantly, the Pioneer system that comes standard in TC needs to be hot-rodded with killer subbass. And for that we turn to our friends at MTX. They are making an enclosure specifically for the TC in three flavors: Good-to-Go with an amplifier attached, almost good-to-go with a Terminator woofer but no amp, or bring your own amp and woofer.
