2006 987 Stereo


Recommended Posts

(2006 987) I want to keep all of the parts stock in the cockpit, however am thinking of adding better speakers, cd changer, sub and ampifier. The goal here is that I want to keep my stock CDR24 head unit. Has anyone done this and would you recomend this for resale purposes. I want to keep this car as OEM as possible. I just figured if speakers are hidden my value of the car should remain good. Any one have any input?

Ask your dealer abount getting a "Clean Sweep" device from JL. My stereo shop also has a pattern to make a boom box. Send me an e-mail for more details.

What is the "Clean Sweep" all about? Like many others, I'm looking for an upgrade to the Becker in my 2005 S.

The JL Audio Clean Sweep unit is pretty slick. You can google it. The unit basically converts the high level output (amplified signals) coming from the factory amplifier to line level (pre amplified) output. It also adds an additional input (for things like an IPod) that can be controlled with a seperate volume knob.

There are much cheaper devices that do this but the Clean sweep unit "smooths" out (as much as possible) any equalization that the amplifier may have added in. It does this by having you play a reference CD through your system and adjusting automatically. As an example, most stock car amplifiers will start cutting low end (Bass) signal as the volume increases beacuse the (usually) cheap factory speakers will start to distort. You wouldn't want that in a high end system.

I have played around with the unit in my 987 with the (non Bose) upgraded system and it works very well.

Keep in mind that the the problem isn't so much with adding amplification. Units like the Clean Sweep make that an easy task for a experienced installer. The problem is finding speakers that will make the expense worth it. The door mounted woofers just aren't good enough to use with anything else and they are too narrow to facilitate mounting aftermarket units without serious fabrication, cutting and, IMHO, screwing up the look of the door panel. I've seen custom lower door panels but that was and still is out of my price range.

I don't know if this is allowed but if you are looking; I have a very high quality custom subwoofer enclosure and subwoofer that mounts in the passenger footwell of a 986 or 987 Boxster that would work well with the Clean Sweep to augment the factory system. It takes up very little room (My wife never complained) and you'd be surprised what a little (or alot if you are younger) tight bass would do for the system. I can send you details and pics if you'd like....

I've seen several posts on speaker replacement on the 986, but I can't find anything on the 987. Anybody know the dimensions or specific speakers that fit with little or no modification? Thanks.
