Fitting replacement speakers in the dash of the 986 Boxster

Recommended Posts

Hello all on renntech !!

I have heard that you can replace the dash speakers on the 986 boxster as you all will know that they are no the best standard speaker set up ..

My cars a 98 model with no upgraded system fitted.

Ive read that you can fit aftermarket speakers which are the 10cm/4" ones & these will attatch to the orignal speaker grills on the dash .

Just that i have seen some 3 way speakers which might do the job but not 100% ..

If anybody knows about this please let us know as id be very greatful on the advice to guide me in the right direction.

Try the search function as there are lots of threads on this subject...

Here's a great DIY write up by Andy M on a general overhauling the Boxster's sound system. There are more specifics in the archives on how to mount new dash speakers to the OEM baskets (a couple of choices - whichever you're more comfortable with)


Good luck and enjoy your new system when finished.

If you have the basic system then all you have is 2 3.5" speakers.

As a quick upgrade, you can replace these with a 4" coaxial - this will require the speaker cover to be modified to secure the speaker to it.

I had the basic system and installed a set of 3-way rainbow speakers powered by a genesis 2 channel amp. Hardest bit was building the baffles for the door speakers then routing the cables into the doors as they are not pre-wired.
