Regardless, thanks for taking the time and effort to put this together. Nice to have another perspective on things.

I think the OP's thread is more detailed than Banana's thread.

thank you.

I actually decided to install to 12's in my 2gs, it's a bit flashy with the bass but for the money it was worth it. I couldn't do just 1 10' sub lol

Tbh this is much better DIY than bananags' so it's a good thing you did a 'repost' with pics included.

I was going to change the sub too for an aftermarket one.
After I had ripped everything apart and came the time to take the sub off I realized my aftermarket sub was 12". Well atleast now I know how to change the sub if I decide to change it in the future.

Btw is that replacement sub black rather than brown as the old one or is it just the lighting?
I'm asking because I have black one and now I'm thinking if it's been changed by someone.

WELCOME to the club though OP. if u search 99.9% of everything is on here, most of it is already a sticky

DEBBIE DOWNER STRIKES AGAIN

BTW dont use a hammer to remove the pins just buy a cheap $12 interior panel puller to remove the pins
I know this is over two years old, but the OP's DIY is FAR better and detailed than Banana. I think this post ran the OP away lol. Anyway thanks to the OP for doing this AND leaving the pictures up.

Wow, this is a lot of work just to get the rear subwoofer out. I would have thought that Lexus would have made it simple by only needing to remove the speaker cover. So I take it the speaker cover is actually attached to the rear deck from the backside?

Glad I found this post... did almost the same thing just yesterday. I simply super-glued the blown sub but thinking of replacing the sub stock. I have to say this is a much better guide than all the previous ones. Thanks for the post.

Replaced my stock ML sub a few years ago after the heat killed it, defiantly gained back loads more bass from the newer woofer.

I also replaced mine a few years ago , when I upgraded the stereo system , amps , speakers, etc . There was nothing wrong with it , but the sound was mediocre at best , so I replaced it with a much better 10 inch on a ported enclosure .

I re-foamed my factory ML sub using this very thread few weeks ago. I couldn't have done it without this post.
The foam kit cost me 20$, and about 2 hours including work on the actual sub.
Again, thanks to the OP... With the money I saved, I got my front suspension taken care of. (Caster arms, LBJ, tie rod ends)
