Generally the speaker cover panel will 'pop' off with a little gentle prying, giving access to the speaker itself which will allow you to simple pull the wire leads. I would suggest taping them so they don't cross and cause hiss in your system or rattle inside the speaker containment area.

SOURCE: Factory radio and sub woofer

installing any system is tricky... subwoofers are even more so... it all depends on what kind of amps and changeovers you have and if you have a capacitor (recommended). amps are a deciding factor in gauges of wire as well. so my question is is what you have and how you are trying to set it up?

How to hook up car radio to an amp when radio does not have RCA Jacks


They make a type of Amplifier that uses high level input from the speaker outputs. Contact a company called Crutchfield.com for details and prices. You ca also have a radio shop install preamp output RCA jacks to the factory radio, do an Internet search for shops that do this type of retrofitting.

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

How do I remove and replace the rear speaker in my 2002 Lexus ES 300?


Hello, I have a 2000 ES300 and while the body style is different believe the newer model still has the rear deck mounted sub-woofer that you are referring to. The process of removing this speaker would start off the same as if you were going to replace the third brake light also located in this housing. Using a flathead screwdriver work your way around prying/popping up all four corners of the speaker grill covering the speaker that have the retainer clips. Once you disengage the clips work/maneuver the grill up and towards you gently and it should slide out. The bulb for the third brae light will be attached to this speaker grill, disconnect the snap wire from the bulb and you should have a clear visual of the speaker and the four bolthead screws securing it. Remove these screws and your almost home free. The next part might be slightly more difficult. If the speaker s simply connected by a clipped on wiring harness, just detach.On my 2000 ES300 i have the pioneer system(Not Nakimichi) and the 2 wires (one black, and one red) are soldered directly to the speaker. You can take a soldering iron(maybe a battery or gas powered one unless you have an inverter) and remelt the solder to remove the wires or you can elect to simply cut the wires. If you choose to cut them make sure you cut them as close as possible to the soldered joints so you have plenty of wire left to install the replacement speaker.Then install replacement either soldering or using crimp clamps and reassemble. ( Note if you simply want to add a aftermarket amplified sub-woofer you don't need to remove the sub-woofer out of the housing. You can tap into the wire leads and run it directly to the amplifier. Just cut one of the wires leading to the stock sub-woofer so it doesn't also come on and potentially blow while the radio is on. This will also prevent any bass humming when the radio is shut off but the aftermarket amplifier is still on because once one of the wires to the stock sub-woofer is disconnected or cut it breaks the circuit. Hope this helps.

Radio wiring problem 2001 Audi A3


Hi, had total issues with this too! Your back speakers arent going because they are amped by the factory amp in the boot. You have to provide power to the amp so that it will turn the rear speakers on. This was a white and black striped wire in my car (Audi A3 1997) The rear speakers are blue /green and brown/red (left rear) , and the LH rear is brown/red and (forgotten colour) but the wire on the bottom left under those two brown/red wires on the 20pin harness. If you wire it all up like this then your rears should be going :)

Subwoofer not working properly after a few mins playing


Get a hold of the woofer connector (I believe its brown) right by the whoofer and move it around/press it/disconnect and reconnect and check if the woofer comes on. There is a bad connection in the connector for the woofer itself. I have a 2001 GLE my self and that's what I found to be the problem with mine.

2000 lexus es300


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.

Car audio


I would leave this one up to a pro. Luxury cars have changed their audio format over the past decade. Instead of the radio and preamp being in one unit in the dash they are using the on-board computer as the radio and amp. Usually what you think is the radio in your dash (now-a-days) is really a command screen connected to the cars computer.
