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

Had all the panel out of the boot, No Amplifier's there.

unless there is something in the CG changer compartment.

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.
