  1. your head unit has to have an CD/cmp button for it to work if you have an pioneer head unit. There is a guy who sales them who belongs to this site maybe he can help you out. quote me back if interested and I will research his address so you can email him. I have an head unit but Im keeping it in case I ever sell my car. I have an after market system much better. JOhn
  2. its not worth even worrying about the stock its a crappy. crappy power look at the obvious. the car has 8 speakers and I have seen head units bigger than the amp and the power supply for the amp. Go after market cheaper and sounds better. Sounds so much better, like for an example cassette to CD.
  3. the controls for the changer is coming from your headunit, the amp has nothing to do with it. Its under the passenger seat, and has two plugs the smaller one is the amps inputs and the bigger one is for the amps output. Two screws hold it in place. seat comes out with four bolts easy coming out easy going back in. Do not forget to unplug your harnesses under the seat for the power control. opps sorry about that quoted the wrong guy. You already know this.

  5. The install took 6 hours to complete thanks for your guys help it wasnt as hard as I thought. Just real time consuming I had half the car apart in the front yard. System sounds great.
  6. I got the install done thanks to you guys everything came apart and went back together smooth. MY wife is so happy she has her Cd player and system. Also a big help is that crutchfield sends instructions on how to take the stuff apart. System sounds remarkable.
  7. I put the same thing in to. I researched and installed all after market it was alot cheaper. It wasnt that hard either it just took 6 hours to do if you want more info just get back with me I willl help you as much as I can. I'm a new guy in this site i want to pick up for the experienced ones with the information. Let me tellyou the new after market system sounds so good. It worth the money. MOst of your questions has already been answered in past forums. Go aftermarket the difference is like vhs to dvd.
  8. if your RCA cables are not high quality and too close to your power wire to your amp this will cause this problem try to seperate them. Then check your ground connection. to insure tightness.
  9. A good rule of thumb is to match your rms of your amp with your speakers rms. Then they will perform at thier best.
  10. I just want to say thanks. I feel like a jackass for asking questions that has been already answered in other forums I went thru in 2 days and read them all on stereo questions for es300 almost all my questions have been answered. I feel real confident now with the help of all of you. Again thanks JOhn :P
  11. are those the same colors for the 1995 es300. YOu would happen to know the tweeters and the door speakers and where can I splice into them at. I appreciate it very much knowledge is good. John
  12. what did you do with the speakers in the dash and the tweeters I would like to hook them up to the stereo deck just need the color wires is at the dash or are they at the amp. Is the amp powering all the speakers. Do you know what colors is the plug in back of the stock unit for the power , constant power, and ground, and antenna turn on? Thanks for your help.

  14. Thanks a bunch I ordered all the stuff from crutchfield catalog they sent me directions with pitures for the dash stereo and door speakers and the rear deck 6x9s. I will agree with you its alot of work. Proper planning will make this install alot easier. I have installed stereos my self in my other cars but this one is the most complicated because I dont want to mess anything up. I'm going to email you and look up that website you mentioned and see what they can do for me. Thanks a bunch. JOhn
  15. This is John Thanking all of you for replying to my topic all your advice is greatly appreciated. I'm going with the aftermarket equipment for audio after pricing lexus stuff. Much cheaper! Also the wife thinks its pretty the new deck, so she is happythats all that matters. I have a new topic if you guys could put your inputs in.
