Post up a thread in general car audio discussion. That way the posts will count towards your post count.

Good luck on your search and welcome aboard!

I bet if you could tap into that battery bank for the electric motor, you got some serious powah

Thanks for the welcome and great question! The answer is no. No alternator and no 'starter' to crank. The 12V battery is pretty small as a result and only powers accessories with the car in ACC mode, go to IG-On and it flips relays to power the 14.4v bus via the main HV battery. So if you sit and listen to music in ACC mode for long you're really taxing that small 12V battery, but if you hit the power button one more time for IG-On then you're powered 14.4 by the big battery. All without turning over the internal combustion engine.
And no, you don't want to tap into the main battery directly. Toyota has already done that for you via an inverter. Just tie into the 12V battery like any other install. Best part is, it's in the back so no firewall to get through. Pretty roomy for running wire too.

I have a very simple question.

If you have no alternator nor other means of charging for the batteries, A) how do the batteries have an extended battery life with the car itself and B) how in the hell do you plan on playing music with an audio setup without a very very large battery bank that you manually charge nightly?

Yeah, I hear ya. Not on my list of 'sexy' cars either, but it has its own charms. My install is pretty tame and stealth but I will have a build log at some point.
