Hi Matt Syd hear.

Im having the same problem, fitting a temporary radio into my LS400, cannot find speaker wires ether, tried continuity testing to find wire’s; Before I take the door panels of, I wondered if there is a separate amplifier some-ware for the Speakers as on the previous Model’s.

Still looking for a replacement Radio.

Best regards

Hi Matt

Had a look at circuits for Mk1 with the CD changer in the boot, there is two separate amplifiers right hand side in the boot. one for main speakers and the other for the Sub-Woofer.

Not yet investigated.

Pictures of my touch screen project, laptop in the boot

Hi,

I'm not sure if mine is the same but does yours have the Premium Sound System installed?

If you look in the boot the amp is mounted on top of the CD changer ( you may have to remove the 1st aid box moulding to see) If is is this type let me know as I have the wiring diagram with the colour codes for the speaker wires.The plug on the head unit you pulled and the sound went off may be the inputs to the amp and not the outputs ( speaker) connections.

cheers,

Steve

Hi Matt; Syd Again

Any body out-there know.

hi there just reading all the replies and so forth

the best way to test if the speakers are to which cable is to put a battery to the end of the cables (just an AA) you may have to piggy back them to test if they are in a block. you will hear a crackle. i used to fit car audio when i was younger!

i have to what looks like amp units in the back of my stripped out boot what is the one to the lest and what is the one to the right?

Bad idea iv been in electronics for 50 years. to put supply without a limiting resistor in the circuit is a bad idea.

And the unit in the left side of the boot on a M111 is the Lamp failure unit.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
