  1. Are the front door speakers in a 92-96 ES300 full range? How about the tweeter/squawker combo?
  2. Hello, I replaced my rear 6x9 with a pair of Polk 6x9 3 ways, I took out the tweeter and mid so I am just running the rear channels to a pair of woofers. However, I found no improve in bass response. Same flat low end as before. Before someone tells me to get a sub to get good bass, I want to emphasize that I only want to improve low end from stock, not going all out. My question is: Are there high pass filters embedded in the stock amp rear channel? The speakers are not hitting the low end at all. If it is full range, how come the front doors (I know they are full range) has more bass than the rear deck? TIA
  3. Direct injection may contribute to the noise. AFAIK, the engine ticks.
  4. My 95 ES has this problem recently when shifting into R, there is a noticeable noise coming from engine/transmission. When I shift back into P or D, the noise disappears. The tranny fluid was changed 20k miles ago with Mobil1 ATF. Any help is welcome and appreciated.
  5. while changing oil last wkend, i noticed there are alot of grease/oil buildup around the left front axle sleeve. is it because of a cracked sleeve? i replaced the right front sleeve few months ago and i guess this one has met its time. if my assumption is wrong, please give me some advices... thanks... btw, the car is a 95 ES w/ 107500 miles.
  6. how about pull the seats all the way back so your feet will have hard time catching the throttle... or brake...
  7. Thanks alot dude, when i get around to it, i'll email you for some information.
  8. Hi everyone, I have a few questions regarding this setup. I want to keep the stock HU while replacing the amp and stock speakers. I'm looking into Alpine MRV-F340 amp, with their type R series speakers. I noticed that this Alpine amp has line level input so I can connect it directly to the stock HU. I'm wondering if there are anything else I need to be awared of before I go on with this setup. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  9. I have installed a homemade intake (cone K&N filter) and improved from 280-320 to 330-350miles per tank with 50% highway 50% city. 10% increase in fuel efficiency is good enough for me.

  11. has anyone had experienced hooking up a separate amp and subs onto stock lexus (pioneer) headunit? anyone recommanding doing that or simply change the headunit instead? i heard some people blew out the stock stereos on toyotas doing that. anyone done that on a lexus? if so, how's the sound quality?
  12. Where can i get a good deal on McIntosh headunits? i found none on ebay. anyone has any ideas or suggestions?
  13. I own a '95 es300 and am tired of the stock sound system. I'm wondering if there are any aftermarket manufactures who makes any headunits that wouldnt make the dash look too funky. in another words, im looking for a conservative unit that looks sort of OEM. Any ideas?
