This means that the kit will work for your car whether your car has Bose, Hi-Fi, or the base system.
We also have kits for other Porsche models here.
Note: other kits on the market only work with specific 996 year and trim options and generally do not include the extra parts and wire harnesses to accommodate cars that came with a single DIN radio system, cars that came with fiber optic equipped radios ('03 and up) or factory equipped subwoofers. Our kit covers and works with all.
Note: Our main kit is designed specifically for Kenwood DNN and DNX model radios and will not work without modification with radios produced by other manufacturers. Our universal kit will work with all major brands but is limited to '98-'01 years. The universal kit will not work on '02 and later vehicles.
Included in this kit is:
Instructions, including how to disassemble/reassemble your vehicle, wire your vehicle, mount all parts, and some tips on performing additional audio upgrades to a Porsche 996.
Note: Steel mounting cage shown in picture is not included. Your Kenwood radio will come with one of these in the box.
Note: '03-'05 996's have a factory amplifier that powers the door, dash, and rear speakers that is not compatible with aftermarket radios. In the event that you have one of these cars you must also replace that amplifier with an aftermarket unit. This is not a problem for most people because they plan on doing so anyway.
behind the rear seat (Bose systems on coupe models), or on the passengers side of the center console (cabriolet models). Both types in '99-'02 years are compatible with aftermarket radios only when using this installation kit. '03 through '05 vehicles must be rewired to an aftermarket amplifier.
