Behind the right quarter trim panel if it is equipped with the super sound system. If not it does not have one.

It is a tedious task, however simple if you have patience. In order to get the sub woofer out, you need to take out the paneling and floor in the back. Start with the plastic knobs near the rear hatch door and then pull the floor back and the panel with the cup holder. I believe i needed to take back the panel on the inside of the rear pillar as well. Everything snaps back in place, so it is not a big deal. Just don't force anything so that you don't crack the plastic. The subwoofer is mounted from the back, so that is the only way to actually get to the hardware holding it in place. Otherwise it will just spin and spin if you try from the front. i replaced mine about 2 years ago with an 8" Kicker, however i think the factory sub had better sound. The amp is designed specifically for that sub. However, it did blow out and the kicker gets the job done. Good Luck!!

Subwoofer is not playing


It is hard to say. The sub-woofer has its own amplifier, although it is supplied the sound data from the main amplifier. It could have a problem with the battery power circuit (Sub-Woofer Amplifier Connector Pin 6, LIGHT GREEN/VIOLET) or it could have a problem with the GROUND circuit (Pin 2, BLACK/LIGHT GREEN) Or it could possibly not be receiving the signal from the main amplifier (Pin 7, BROWN/ORANGE "+"), (Pin 8, RED/BLACK "-"). Or it could be that either the sub-woofer speaker is blown, or the sub-woofer amplifier is defective.
There is also a "High Audio Mute" circuit that connects between the main amplifier and the sub-woofer amplifier.

My sub woofer in my car won't turn on , how do I


you will need to establish what the cause is if it is a factory fitted unit and your car 2002 or newer it will have diagnostic plug in the right hand foot well just under the dash this is called OBD2 socket a reputable garage will have the equipment to plug in and read the codes back from your car and should display your sub woofer problem, if this is self fitted then it a case of tracing your circuits and testing your amps good luck

My sub woofer stopped working, please tell me where it is located so i can check the speaker and also check if power is going to it thank you very much joe


The JBL premium sound system has a large woofer in the bottom of each door, a small mid-range speaker next to the woofer, & tweeters next to the front door windows in the corner, & two full-range speakers near the rear seats. The woofer (not sub-woofer) handles all the low end. You can test the woofer by turning the BASS to max and TREBLE to minimum (make sure balance and fader are centered) and put your ear next to each woofer.
The woofer is usually the 1st speaker to have problems after 10 years or so. The outer edge of the woofer starts to degrade. You will usually hear a rattling sound out of the woofer when this happens.
NOTE: If no sound at all out of the woofer (tweeters are OK), you might take your car into a car stereo shop. They can put a speaker on the wires connected to the speaker and make sure your problem is not the radio.
PROBLEM: You can still hear sound out of the woofers but it is distorted
SOLUTION 1: Go to a car audio shop and have them install new woofers. These may cost $30+ each but the dealer cost is over $200 for each woofer (crazy).
SOLUTION 2: More involved but very cost effective. If you or a friend is handy, you can go to www.speakerworks.com and order a new set of speaker outer rings (on the site they are called speaker SURROUND) that will replace the damaged outer rings on the woofers (replace on both woofers). They really work great and your speakers should last for many more years.
Hope this helps.

CAN NOT REMOVE RIGHT REAR SUB WOOFER?


The sub-woofer is located behind the rear panel, so you will have to pull the rear panel to be able to get to all the bolts that hold the sub and plastic type box in place. It can be a pain to remove, it has about 4-5 bolts in the box.

This is normal. I also have a 2000 ES300. This became a problem when i tried to run an aftermarket sub off of the wire leads from the stock sub-woofer. When I would switch the radio off there would be a loud, deep, constant bass tone. As far as I know you cannot stop the voltage from continuously supplying the sub-woofer this is the way the factory amplifier is programmed, however, if you cut one of the wires(youhave to cut because wires are soldered to sub-woofer) the humming noise will not occur when radio is shut off. Cut the wire in middle and add crimp connectors so you can reconnect later if needed. You only need to cut one and it doesn't matter whether it's the black or red wire.
