Nice one Neil! Great to see it out and about properly. Cool

I just got back from my trip on Tuesday night. Not sure where to begin with the right up and I’m back at work now. Full on holiday blues here. I just want to retire now. Grin

Anyway great pics. The car sits so well in that first pic. Thumb

Thanks Mark - I am very happy with how the car sits on it's wheels, the photo was when I turned back to have a look at it when I was walking into the house.

I picked it up today from Auto Audio and it was next to a stock 997 cab - which looked like it was on stilts, I could get my fist between the tyre and the wheel arch. Actually very surprised at how different the two cars looked.

The reason I was picking the car up from Auto Audio is that they've fitted the Focal sub:



(The wooden props removed after fitting and the visible face trimmed in leather).

And replaced the Hertz that were in the dash with these Morel separates:



They are Morel Virtus 402 4" two way speakers, for anyone who is interested.

Does it make a difference? Yes, massive - literally incomparable to how the car was before. I drove home listening to ill-communication by the Beastie boys and the sound quality was incredible.

To recap, the car has:

Becker Cascade Pro head unit
J&L six channel amplifier
Hertz 100.4 4" combined midrange woofer and tweeter in the rear
Hertz 130 5.25" woofers in the doors
Morel 4" mid and separate tweeter in the dash
Focal powered sub under the dash on the passenger side

I have just replaced the standard speakers in the dash and the rear for Alpines.
The door speakers are still the originals. Is there any real benefit in changing them?
Did you consider an under seat sub?

Cheers

The Focal sub I bought is sold as an under-seat unit, but it wouldn't fit under the seat, so under the dash it goes.

I changed all the speakers as I wanted to make sure they were all 4 ohm, and I also got a bit carried away.

Thanks. Are the original door speakers not 4ohm?
I have an Alpine PDX-4.100 amp. The dash and door speakers are driven together and the rear speakers separately, if that makes sense. The door speakers appear to be quieter than the dash?

Originally I would think that you would have had the standard Nokia 6 channel amp which drives each pair of speakers individually, I wanted to replicate that as I thought it was the path of least compromise.

I honestly don't know what doubling up the speakers and driving two pairs from one pair of channels will do - might make that channel 4 ohms whilst the doors stay at 2, but I'd be lying if I claimed to understand these things.

Ah, yes, that would make sense. I'll have to do a bit of digging in see how they are wired. From memory unplugging the dash speakers meant that the door speakers stopped working also. I'm thinking that would mean that they are possibly wired in series?

Having spent the day doing some testing (otherwise known as driving in to town and back) I can reveal that the stereo is now awesome, incredibly happy with it.

I have to admit .. i did think of that position but its a large loss of foot space for the passenger so i did not continue down that route .

Feeling rather embarrassed now that another garage did what i should have .. Embarassed

Somewhat ashamed To be honest .

Not at all mate, I took it to an audio place that do a lot of work for Porsche OPC's (three, the chap said), so they knew what would work and what wouldn't having done it over and over.

Would anyone know the maximum brake rotor diameter that would clear an 18” BBS LM?

I think your car looks spot on in its current guise Neil.

I wouldn’t fit motorsport type wheels to a cab. They always look a bit funny to me. That’s not a pop at Cabriolets, just my view on LMs and things.

Those thin 5 spokes on now look perfect. Thumb

I intend running 380mm under 18” E29 996 Cup wheels, they fit, just.

I am not sure if E88’s use the same barrels as the E29’s but if you need the BBS part numbers let me know.
