• Hello, I would like to exchange the PCM 2.1 for a modern radio (possibly with camera).

    I have also done this before, but not on this car.

    My Boxster 987 is from 2008 and pre-facelift.

    The questions that have:

    I read a lot here about canbus and must. Do I have both?

    How do I get that out? I probably don't have Bose, would say somewhere on it, right?

    Can one of you summarize what exactly I need to do to figure out what I need for this?

    Is the (if applicable) mustbus still needed then or possibly bridged?

    Thanks already.

    Chris

  • Bose is in the doors, if available. Can bus adapter set buy, with bezel, and off you go. You do not need the optical bus without Bose.

    Great, then I look around. Thanks a lot, Holger. What about the amplifier? Isn't it external?

    How did you solve with the antenna (DAB?)

  • Hello Chris

    I have copied the following from me times from another thread


    "I think only if you have the Bose sound system and steering wheel remote control (with me neither) other adapters come into consideration.

    I have converted from cdr 30 to Kenwood dmx 8019dabs with Apple CarPlay with me came a can Bus Kit (69€) and

    Antenna Adapter( 9,30€) that's it at adapter

    All in all with installation 950€

    2 days work

    ...and I am thrilled

    Just the extra power through the radio is much more dynamic in the car

    (Sound plus in the car)

    The DAB antenna is centered under the windshield spar (not to see) I find super reception

    The handsfree micro is parallel on the interior mirror (small)

    ...except you have flap in the exhaust then radio off 😉😊

    Greetings Jens"

  • Hello Jens, so steering wheel control I do not have😅

    What kind of antenna adapter then?

    Are the speaker wires on my original radio or external or done with the canbus adapter?

  • Hey Chris :wink:

    Antenna adapter because of DAB+ is called

    antenna adapter Fakra > DIN

    And Can Bus adapter is called

    Can Bus Kit Porsche Quadlock>ISO (yes with speaker)

    + double DIN frame

    + DAB+ antenna and of course

    the radio you want

    I found for me that the Kennwood fit best with its features and Apple Car Play of course...should also go Androit phones...it has no cd drive but through the other media

    Like radio,DAB+ Apple CarPlay and USB is enough for me completely

    I have me the two USB ports in the "cell phone" compartment put where normal also Porsche USB and jack has to lie

    All this goes like this...

    ...if you don't have Bose (other adapter) and steering wheel remote (also other adapter)

    I have everything done by "professionals

    Have for everything with work beginning last year

    About 900 € paid with option on original rebuild (possibly when selling the car) to see if I leave the head unit then in it 🤷‍♂️

    It may be that it was cheaper today or then I for my part am fully satisfied and enthusiastic

    ... unless I press the button in the center console with the two exhaust pipes :headbange... then you need in the moment no radio

  • Super Jens, many thanks for the summarized help.

    One question is still bothering me:

    I read here about problems with the bass after the change, can that happen with me too?

  • Good morning Chris

    ...yes I have also read here in the forum

    So I can only say that I "the plant"

    Now for over a year use quite normal

    From Schlager to Electro House to Rock

    Sometimes louder sometimes quieter sometimes bass-heavy sometimes quieter and brighter

    I have so far no problems noticed or had ... everything works perfectly

    Of course, the installed speakers are not high end (Bose but also not my opinion)

    The head unit has enough more power more dynamic than original and for me that's enough completely

    Greetings Jens

  • Where did you put the DAB antenna?

    Are there different colors for the bezels?

    How do I find out which one I have?

    Thank you already....
