Where to install amplifier (After Market)


Recommended Posts

BOXSTER 2005

Just have the basic sound package.

Have installed my rear speakers (EuroSpeedMotor) and replaced the front speakers as they were damaged. Will provide later more information about my swap, how I have done this.

I would like to know where would be the best location to install the amplifier? I have looked around and most 4 channel amplifiers are quite big.

Another question I have, what is the output power of the CDR-24? Can I connect this directly to the amplifier? I cannot use the cinch input?

How did you guys do this?

I haven't seen any 987 sound upgrade yet,,,

plenty of 986 upgrades in 986 forum.

The output power doesn't really matter since all U need is a signal from your HU.

Nope U cannot connect it directly to the amp(after market)especially if it's a fiber optic.

Most likely it would have to go in the front trunk.

It shouldn't be a problem to connect the output speaker leads of the CDR-24 to the input of an amplifier. I don't need to use the optic fiber. I could convert the high power input to a low signal which I can then offer to the cinch connections of the amplifier.

Depending on the amp most have what's called high level input. This is where you would run the speaker outs from your head unit in. The only problem is on a cheaper amp you can get lots of engine noise, whine, background hiss, etc. Either go with a higher end amp or get a good line level converter. Also make sure when you install it you get a good ground to the chassis. If there's paint on your point of ground make sure to scratch it clean, use the same size wire on your grouns as your power, blah blah blah. You allready know all this sorry babbling good luck!

Hi I installed a new MTX rfl 200 comes on when you turn on the radio with low voltage this is the only amp to do that. place in the front trunk with velcro sticks excellent, sits on top of the cover for the tools and such near the bottom below the car amp. I will send you a picture if you would like.

What I have done.....

Bought an 4 channel Kenwood Amplifier, changed the 6inch door speakers with a 120RMS version from Audio Swiss and added the rear speaker set myself from Euro MotorSpeed. I used some Stinger line convertors and RCA cables. Sound is really good now, even with the top down. I was assisted by Quartermile.net who connected this all as I didn't want to spend to much time on sorting out how to run the wires through the fire wall. I normally do these things myself but maybe I became lazy this time.
