Just thought before i go in the trying to just pull off the speaker screen that i get some info about removing it. I want to replace it with one of the many 12" aftermarket speakers i have in my garage. The original Lexus speaker tends to pop at higher volumes. So is there anything i need to know?
It pretty easy to remove, I think there are 4 bolts holding it it. You have to remove the backseat and the pull the whole rear deck cover forward. After that you should be able to see the bolts. Fitting a 12 isnt going to be as easy as you think. You will have to make a new baffle for it, the stock sub is a 10.
I thought it looked like a 10"... Remove the etire backseat?
Are there any diagrams or links for intrustions for this?
Not really. The backseat is 2 pieces, the seat, and then the back. Just pull up on the bottom of the seat and it should pop out. Then there are 4 10 or 12mm bolts holding the back in place. After that, like I said, that rear deck cover slides forward, but I think there are some pins you have to remove first.
The factory amp is what sucks. I replaced the amp with a Soundstream edge 5 channel and got an eclipse head unit with everything I needed to wire it up for $460 shipped. www.millionbuy.com is where I got the equiptment. Their shipping speed is amazing.
