996 Rear Speakers for Boxster Dash

Recommended Posts


I just found a pair of 996 rear speakers for $25. They look very similar to the dash speakers in the 996/986 except without a tweeter. Will they fit in a 986? I just want the grill and speaker ring to upgrade my dash speakers without destroying my original speakers.

Thanks! :D

(Sorry if this is the wrong section, but it seemed like a good place to put this thread)

Don't know specifically if they'll fit, but they look identical to the 996/986 dash grilles so they should.

Incidentally, have you looked at the OEM factory dash speakers? Can't imagine why anyone would want to keep them. Yes I understand for resale you don't want to give someone $1000 speaker upgrades but when you're ready to sell, you could just as easily replace the great ones w/ some good cheaper ones. The buyer will thank you.

The OEM dash speakers really are crappy worthless "drivers". Most of us who've upgraded ours just cut them out and reused the baskets to mount nice aftermarket coaxials or components. Good luck :)

Thanks for the advice! I might go for it for $25. It will probably work, and if not it isn't too big of a loss.

My goal is to make everything fully reversible. So if the car gets totaled or sold I can swap the speakers out.

I really only want the speaker rings and the plug they use. Because I have painted grills, I will still have to take my speakers apart, but I won't be destroying anything.
