    I want to share my solution to the blown out subwoofer in my LX470 that has the Mark Levinson sound system.

The smaller ones, the GX528's have an RMS rating of 45 watts and a peak of 135 watts. The larger ones, the GX625's...

    Upgrading the Sound System

    Let’s start with the basics. I own a 1997 FJZ80 40th anniversary edition and looking into this for quite a while. I want to upgrade the whole sound system. I bought an alpine stereo as well as an amp bypass as I don’t think I really need a completely separate amp. I will be installing that...

    Trading windows for speakers.

    When I chopped off all the extra metal that came on my 1/2 doors I found a problem. Someone had installed a window crank (I bet it was Toyota:)), unfortunately most 1/2 doors (mine included) don't even have windows, so that just seemed silly. What to do with those now useless window cranks...
