Custom audio to Cayenne MY05


Recommended Posts

Dear Valued List Members, :D

I am considering building a customized audio system to my Cayenne S MY05, which now has the standard cd/radio. I have a few sets of questions I would love to get answers to.

1) I would like to include a dash-mounted DIN2 sized DVD-player (eg. Kenwood DDX7025)). First of all, is it possible to remove the standard radio/cd completely without causing trouble to the CAN bus functionality? How about wiring the new head unit, can I use any inbuilt wiring? Will a standard DIN2 faced player fit seamlessly into the dashboard or does perfect fit require customization? Anything else I should know?

2) I would love to include a second video display to the rear passangers. Ceiling(middle) or headrest, which would you recommend and why?

3) I would also love to have a Playstation PS2. TechArt even has an installation kit for this. Any other options available? Anything I should consider regarding PS installation?

4) Are the standard Blaupunkt speakers wired with normal speaker wire to the back of the radio/cd? What's the level of quality of the standard speakers? Can the speakers be replaced easily with higher quality ones?

Thank you in advance to all who respond!

You should probably become acquainted with the MOST bus technology used to connect the factory-supplied audio components. MOST (Media-oriented Systems Transport) is a fibre-optic networking standard that is aimed at the automotive industry.

As used in the Cayenne, MOST fibre is used to digitally connect the FM tuner in the front console, the Bose amplifier in the the cargo bay, and the CD changer (if optioned). Unless Euro versions of the Cayenne are different than here in the US, I believe you are going to find it a challenge to find copper wire in any useful location. <_<

I'm no MOST-newbie. ;)

MOST may be a wonderful innovation in theory but it is currently supported by a limited amount of car manufacturers and an even more limited amount of third-party automotive audio equipment manufacturers. This leads to an availability blackhole of aftermarket devices to utilize it. I'm actually not aware of any major aftermarket car-audio device supplier who would have a MOST equipped device for sale.

Hence, I believe for us audio enthusiasts who are not happy with the options offered by car manufacturers, the only viable choice is still to rewire with good ole' copper.

So, I'm still hoping to hear answers to my original questions. :D
