It's been years in saving and managed to finally pulled the trigger on a used alp system. Looking for some confirmation/suggestions on a Lexus IS 250. Previous conversion with Choose held here.

I was going to do 3 heads (Rx only) up front (upper portion of the lower grille); however, testing shows that there are PTs. :/ Has anyone had better luck running 2 Rx, 1Tx (red/orange)? If adding a Tx increases the flexibility and rigidity of the setup I'll shoot for that instead.

Not sure if DE is used in California, but if so, you should definitely get a TX head for adequate protection.

I would try the two top orange spots of the grill with a TX head in the middle just above the emblem.

If possible, try temporarily mounting the heads then have the system tested to ensure optimal mounting locations.

DE isn't used in CA at this point so you are probably fine with a dual RX, but a triple RX should do pretty well in the red section even against DE. Check out he Lexus RC350 in the winter test it did, it's a similar front end and it did very well : https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/95389/
