Not a big fan of the boxer sound, but I must say it looks outstanding!

Yeah, the UEL header sound is a love it or hate it kind of thing.

I was about to start replacing her speakers, but then thought against it since I barely drive her these days with my work schedule making me miss all of the local meets, plus they're doing a lot of road construction here leaving the freeways heavily uneven (I've been launched off my seat almost hitting my head on the roof, I've seen cars spark from bottoming out, etc). So unless my schedule changes and they're done with all this crazy road construction, I won't be driving her much. So I'm not going to start focusing on the audio, and will just continue with the exterior mods. At least I'd be able to appreciate that when even I go into the garage, unlike new speakers

Plus, Toyota has the speakers wired weirdly. The dash speaker and tweeter are 4-ohm speakers, but wired in a way that the HU sees a 2-ohm load. And if you disconnect one, the other will not work. The door speakers are 2-ohm, and I really don't care about the rear speakers since they're pretty much useless to have in this car. If I ever get to replacing the speakers, I might disconnect and remove the dash speaker and tweeter, and replace the door speaker with a higher end component set up and run new wires to the component tweeter that would be mounted in the dash. Although 2-ohm component speakers are pretty pricey.

?? You get 3 way speakers in the front?

I know Toyota HU are 2ohm stable because they wire tweeters and front door speakers in parallel.

If you have 4ohm doors then dash+tweeter might be wired in series, and then all this wires in parallel with the door.

For the FR-S (not sure which other Toyotas or Scions), they use a 3-way component set up plus two rear speakers. The doors are 2-ohm 6.5" "subwoofers" powered by the OEM amp. I believe they're just regular woofers with a passive crossover tho. They do not sound that good since the bass produced isn't clear no matter where you put the bass level at on the HU. The dash consists of a 4-ohm 3.5" mid-range woofer paired with a 4-ohm 1" (or was it 1.25") tweeter powered by the HU. The rear speakers are 4-ohm full range speakers with a HPF via the HU and is primarily used for rear fill.

She got a MUCH needed brake fluid flush today. Brakes start as soon as I apply the brake pedal now! I had extra left, so I just swapped out what ever was in Dory's reservoir with the extra.
