Upgrade Sound System in 1998 Boxster 986


Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased a 1998 Porsche Boxster 986 and I find it a great drive however the stereo is a little lacking with only the speakers in the dash. I've upgrade the stereo but I would like to add additional speakers in both doors and in the rear speaker shelf. Forgive my ignorance but this is my first Porsche and all this is quite new to me.

Firstly, with the door speakers, can anyone recommend the best option for speakers that would fit in the door? Also does Porsche offer a grill for these speakers or should I just use what's provided by the speaker?

Secondly, I recently purchased a rear storage box to install the rear speaker kit. Can anyone recommend the speakers for this as well as the centre sub-woofer?

Lastly, would it be worthwhile to purchase an Amp or would this just be overkill?

Many thanks in advance.

      Hi Guys, I am a new member of this community and I am very happy to be here. 
      My name is Mathias and I just bought my very first car. I am university student so I wanted a cool, sports car and as I live in Dubai, the weather is warm so a convertible was ideal. I have therefore just bought my first car, the Porsche Boxster, 2006. As this is my first car, and I have bought it as the 3rd owner. I have a lot of questions about how I should maintain the car, and hope you guys can help😎🏎
       
      So first of all, it’s a Porsche Boxster in a beautiful red, with a black soft top, from 2006 that has driven approx. 80,000 km. 
      it has a beige interior.
       
      1) the paint inside the car has scratches and shows the black color under the beige coating. How can I fix this? 
       
      2) the speakers and radio signal is very poor and I want to be able to play music via Bluetooth and aux, is this possible? 
       
      3) is it possible to set up Cameras in the car, for parking? 
       
      4) there are scratches on the exterior, and I took it to the Porsche center, and they said they do not have a perfect match to this color as they don’t make it in this specific red anymore. Is there anything I can do? 
       
      5) the leather inside is looking a little bit worn, is it possible to fix this up? 
       
      6) lastly, is there any mods, DIY upgrades or accessories you recommend I to add to this 2006 Boxster?

      Hi
      My 02 Boxster does not have electronics in it. So I have been locking and unlocking the car manually. Is there a way I can replace the elctronics inside key or buy a new key that matches with the Car. Please point me in right direction.

      While researching another problem with my Boxster, I noticed a company is advertising an oil fed intermediate shaft bearing kit, which seems to use a modified cover and a hose to feed oil to the intermediate shaft bearing..
      the kit is here..

      Has anyone installed it or know if it is any good?
      My old 986 Boxster had an upgraded IMS bearing installed when I bought the car, and I thought it was a worthwhile thing to do.. But was told the 987 needed an engine teardown to replace the bearing.. This kit seems to just feed engine oil into the bearing, which from what I have read would solve the problems with failure.. But really.. should this kit do the trick?

      Just finished (January 2014) an audio upgrade to a '99 C4 Cab. Thought I would document it for future reference.

      I have recently heard that there is an upgrade tiptronic gearbox oil/fluid available in the market which should give a better response for the Tip box. Does this really work? Have anyone tried before?
      I am interested to learn as I have realized that the tip at high revs seems not responding as good when compares to mid to low range revs.
      Thx
