Where is the AMP?

Sorry Guys, this is actually a bit of a double post... I posted it on the Lexus forum then realised TezzaWorld might be a better place to ask!!

Here goes anyway.... :?


Trying to install a Kenwood headunit into the Altezza. (The bottom loading changer gone ERR3 for the last time!)

Our Altezza is the RS200 L Edition model and has the Japanese SatNav so I assumed it has the Active speaker system in it.

Have brought both the ebay Amp bypass and Facia kit.

Now that I've taken everything out, I can seem to find the amp! From searches, I think the amp is on the left hand side of the glovebox. Have posted some piccies below. Can anyone shed a bit of light on this?? Do I actually have the "passive system then"??

Picture of the 4 plugs I've got

Just to show I've got the Jap GPS.... :lol:

Rather blank looking left hand side behind the glovebox! :oops:

Cheers guys!

Easiest way to tell is have a look at what's written on the rear speakers, from what I can see there tho you don't have an external amp, mines pretty visible as far as I remember... You can definately feel it anyway when you put your hand in behind the left hand side of the glove box :)

when I replaced my radio there didn't seem to be any external amp fitted to my car. There was only two connections on the old radio but I didn't have the factory sat nav so i dont know the story with that is. from what I gather not all cars have the external amp
