Cayenne Owners, We are seeking one 03-09 Cayenne (w/ Bose) and one 03-09 (non Bose) in the Tampa Bay Area interested in replacing the original radio or PCM with an aftermarket head unit. If interested, please give us a call at 877.408.3876 for details. Kind regards, Loi T. Owner - Euro Motorspeed
Out of curiosity, does your original factory radio still get reception when reinstalled? I would use that first to establish that there is a signal coming through the radio antenna to your original radio. Once you confirm this, I would reinstall the aftermarket radio...and check to make sure the antenna adapter is connected properly. If you still do not receive a signal, I would take a meter tester to see if there is a break in the antenna adapter...if so, you may need a replacement antenna adapter to replace the defective one.
trieullionaire replied to mike424u's topic in 987-2 (Boxster/Cayman) - DIY Tutorials - DiscussionHi, We just did a CDR30 replacement a couple weekends ago on a 2010 Cayman. It was only equipped with the standard 4 speakers, no amp...so the install was fairly easy. But it is pretty much the same install as the Gen 1, with the exception of the quad lock connector and wiring up for illumination and reverse signal. I've posted some of these photos on the other forums already but check it out if you haven't seen it. The customer is going to send some photos w/ the Porsche decal applied in silver...so I will post those as well when I get them. Cheers!
Hi Andrew, I am assuming you had purchased one of our powder coated aluminum bezels. Just out of curiosity what brand and model head unit did you purchase, as we have rarely ever come across this issue it would be helpful to know. As for cutting the bezel, that will be a huge bear even for us to have it custom cut. You may be better off using the MDF material to fabricate a bezel to the specs of your head unit in this instance. You can just use the aluminum bezel as a template for the outer dimension to make life a bit easier. If you go the MDF route, just email, call or PM us should you want to return the bezel you had purchased. We have a 30 day return policy for unused components, so that you're not stuck with an item you can't use. Happy holidays! -Trieullionaire
Greetings everyone! We hope everyone had a great weekend!!! Well, after a lot of reviews from our customers, we've been taking notes & decided 3 months ago to make a few enhancements to our 9X7 2-Din Kit. Our Version 2 kit was finally completed as of just late last week. We think some of modifications we've made will aid the efficiency of the overall installation of our kits. We posted images to illustrate the modifications and its function(s). Check out the link below and tell us what you think, we would love to get some feedback (good or bad :huh: ). Again, thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread and many others on Renntech. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...#ht_2045wt_1167 For those of you with the Bose set up, we will have an upgraded kit which includes an additional harness adapter for use with an aftermarket amp or other various set ups using resistors. The adapter will allow you to connect to the factory speaker wire harness without any need to cut, splice or wire tap these wires at all. Attached are a few pictures of the adapter and the vehicle's speaker wire harness that plugs into it. We'll have these adapters solddered with the appropriate factory matched wires in the near future but for the time being they will provided as shown. Sincerely yours, Trieullionaire Euro MotorSpeed :drive:
Hi Guys, A couple things I wanted to clear up and hopefully will make life much easier for folks who install our kits in the future. We've included a cage sleeve for quite a while now with our kits, and it is usually already slid onto the cage for buyers. I guess it would help to understand how it works right...as it is not in our DIY which was based on the very first install we did on my '00 Boxster. The purpose of the cage sleeve is to create a lip on all sides of the cage (the sides, top and bottom). This lip stops the cage from falling through the factory opening, and sits flush to the factory opening. This effortlessly allows you to set the depth and height of the cage, so that you don't need to do any measuring like in the original DIY. Anyhow, I have included some photos to show how everything comes together...in pictures of course! Just a little preface, this was my Saturday afternoon project converting the '00 Boxster radio surround area to the 03-04 version with the thin cup holder option. The install is complete and it looks awesome and I love my new cup holder, I just have to clean up my car and I'll have some pictures to show in the weeks to come.
Hey guys, Here are pics I took today from a Tampa customer who purchase the new kit with the factory textured bezel. The install was on a 2001 911 Turbo. I think it took his friend two days to complete the install, it looks pretty fabulous up close. Cheers, Trieullionaire

You can connect to the head unit. Provided you used the RCA wires to connect to a front amp, you should have the speaker wires from your head unit still available for use. Use the speaker wire output designated for the rear speakers so that you have the fade function.
