    HI, not to make a duplicate post but I know this crosses a few 996 guys minds once in a while. See this thread in the Boxster DIY area.

    http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=10247

    If you have questions reply to me in the boxster forum I will check there.

    Hope that helps!


  2. Has anyone placed a powered subwoofer in the trunk of a C4? I'm wondering if it is located close to the cabin filter it would produce a satisfactory audio experience without having to take up non-existent space in the passenger compartment. I'm not looking to blow the doors off.

    I tried to put a sub in my C4 boot (trunk) but it doesnt work and it takes up room and I also have my kicker amp in there already with a false floor above it. I ended up putting a cut down sub tube on the back seat since I never use the seated area and my wind deflector is always setup so you dont see it anyway.

    I installed a 8" bazooka powered sub behind the back seats.....fits perfectly. Not to obvious either and install was quick. Definitely adds a bit of bass thump to the system.

    later

  4. K&N first impressions.

    I did not use the oiled filter that came with the kit to prevent possible issues with MAF ---> installed an AEM Dry filter instead, ~$50. About 500 miles since install - no CEL.

    I did have some issues installing it, specifically there were some brackets and fasterners missing from the kit, nothing that Home Depot couldn't solve.

    Change in engine noise? can't say since I had the FabSpeed kit insalled before. Sounds about the same maybe a bit louder. I also have the FabSpeed exhaust. All else is stock with the engine.

    As for drivability/performance, I definitely noticed an increase in performance. Seems to spool up faster and at speed, increasing your speed (say 80 -->100) is quicker. Very nice feeling. Overall, I like the kit. As for rain issues. Haven't come across that (SoCal) yet. I am looking to solve that.

    So far, i give it a :thumbup:

  5. I replaced mine with Quart 5.25 subs, they fit the facory hole. Slightly longer screws though. A bit pricey but sound good. Search internet for best price. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    Jorge, did you run the 5.25 Quarts with the standard amp or did you put in a new amp to drive them? If you put in a new amp I assume you also put in a new head unit. Did the new subs make a difference?

    I used the standard amp, i have thought about an aftermarket unit, i haven't got around to it. The subs did make a difference. My stock units sounded ratty. Also i installed a Becker Monza MP3 unit.

  6. Hi there, my door speakers (non - Bose) are shot. Does anyone know of a direct bolt in replacement? Or at least the size I will need - diameter and maximum depth? Thank you

    The door speakers are a standard 5.25" (13cm) unit, however it's the depth you've got to worry about (can't remember off hand), you might need to do a little cutting of the plastic surround do get it mounted. I needed to do this when fitting an Infinity unit.

  7. Just had my replaced, ROW030, 99 996 coupe, springs, shocks and sway bars. Install cost was ~$900, including alignment and was completed in 1 day.

    I thought about doing it myself......the older I get, the more my knuckles hurt when i smash them. Besides, special tools and I don't mix.

    Recommend having a pro do it.....enjoy your time.

    jorge :cheers:
