Questions Regarding 220d.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

First; I hope I am posting this is the correct forum, dunno where else to put it. ;)

I ordered a Lexus IS 220d Black, which will be delivered in January 2007.

Since I am pretty music minded, so there will be some "big" changes to this car.

So, as for my questions;

1. What kind of dynamo (generator) does the Lexus IS 220d have in A(mpere)?

2. What sizes are the standard speakers in the front (woofers & tweeters)? Are they 5.25" / 6.5" / 6.9" ?

3. Are there any specifications on the standard radio / cd-player in the Lexus IS 220d, e.g. like connections on the back, etc.

Thanks for reading (and hopefully answering) my questions in advance!

Regards,

Michel

So far no one has responded, and probably because on this forum most of the people wanting a good sound system have opted for the Mark Levinson system.

Have you heard it yet? It's unbelievable...and whilst you might be able to get better sound quality, it'll probably mean spending far too much for any real benefit...

In the UK, on at least one TV programme it has been compared to systems costing £000's and in cars costing lots and lots more and has beaten them (recent "Pulling Power").

So I'd keep the extra cash, and spend it on a Holiday!!

My dad has a RX400h with a Mark Levinson soundsystem and I did not like it.

E.g. the Titanium Tweeters are way too harsh imho.

And I am selling my current system from my old car, which will undoubtly bring a good amount of money in. Therefor I can invest money in a soundsystem which suits my personal taste.

So if anyone can answer my questions; please do so. Thanks in advance once again.

I defo thought that the MLS in the RX350 which I drove a while back sounded different - almost tinny. The GS450h was more like the IS...the only ciriticism I have with MLS is that you can't change the full graphics. It's a shame...

They all sound mildly different, no doubt each system is affected by the positioning of the speakers, the amount of distance between you and the speakers etc...

Suggest you try the IS version, and see if you think it's any different to the RX one.

Good luck...

It's a RX400h not a RX350. But anyways I did listen to the ML in the IS, but I didn't like it.

Anyways in my current car I have 2x CDT ES component sets, for which I paid 1200 Euro a set. I doubt ML will be better then those. Then again, I am going for one set now and a different brand.

I already found out what dynamo the IS has; 130A
