    New 987 - Sound Pack

    Hi guys, I picked up my new 987 yesterday. Overall I love it to death 9.5 /10. I got a decent spec with Sport seats 19" carrera's and sound pack.

    The thing I miss about the S that I part exed is Bose. Anyone do anything to sort the audio?

    Re: New 987 - Sound Pack

    I would be so nervous letting anyone mess around with all the sophisticated electronics, MOST system et all installing what might be non-compatible kit. Trouble is the Bose cannot be retrofitted. Just console yourself with listening to that fabulous engine

    Re: New 987 - Sound Pack

    I've got the Bose speakers fitted. I've thought that perhaps it might be possible to get an after-market head-unit that allows the sound to be better controlled...

    ...I've found that to get the music sounding right when driving, I have to supress the treble otherwise it sounds a bit bright. (Probably due to the way your ears compensate for the sound of the engine). The speakers are fine, just the level of control over the sound is limited to simple Base/Treble and Audio Pilot (which in my view doesn't work very well). In my previous stereo, you had control over what frequencies were boosted, and could easily select different equalisation pre-sets. The quality of the components is fine - there's no boom or resonance, so I think they're very well matched to the car - it's just the lack of fine control which is a pain.

    I'd agree with Dreamcar, that it might be better to get the factory to fit the speakers. If you find any decent alternative to the standard head-unit, let me know!

    Then again, Listening to Dreamcar's PCM system with Bose yesterday, I thought it sounded better than mine (though I'll have to get some Chris Rea out to compare ), so it might be the CD-24 which doesn't have as good pre-amp output.

    One last thought - the Speakers / Amp are Bose.. the head unit is Becker, isn't it? I'm not sure where the Bose stuff stops and the Becker kicks in.

    Re: New 987 - Sound Pack

    You can add an amp and some extra speaker/ replace the originals. I'm awaiting quotes for my 987!
