Replaced my Lexus door speakers

By , September 28, 2009 10:19 pm

OK, in my continuing effort to save myself from spending unnecessary bucks, I decided to tear into the doors of my Lexus and see what was up with the speakers. The left side of the Nakamichi car stereo stopped making any sound at all. The dealer wanted to replace the entire speaker enclosure for $320 each. Hmmm, I heard in that the speakers appear to die on these cars.

The rear drivers side door panel is off!

The speakers in the door are only 4.5″ in size. The Lexus has component speakers so the tweeter, sub, and mids are all separate components. I saw some Pioneer 4.5″ for $40. I thought I’d give it shot. I had to cut the mounting holes as the new speaker mounts were slightly smaller than the originals.

After about 1 hour, I have a perfectly working system again! Ah, it feels good when time spent works out well.
