Alpine Radio Upgrade INE-W960 Porsche


Brand: Alpine

Get Modern Alpine Features for Your Porsche 997, 987 Boxster, & Cayman Stereo/Navigation

This kit is based on the Alpine INE-W960 Navigation/Radio, and optionally includes all of the required parts, instructions, and hardware for a complete installation. Porsche 911, 997's, Cayman's, and Boxster's of the 987 generation ship with a speaker system that is substantially more capable than its predecessors. The weak link in the system however is the radio and amplifier combination that comes as factory equipment. Replacing the radio with our kit dramatically improves sound quality and lends the entire sound system to a more aggressive live concert sound. Our 997 radio kit also adds a modern digital sound processor that allows each channel to be digitally realigned in order to compensate for the fact that you sit much closer to the speakers on the left hand side (or right hand). This puts you (the listener) in the acoustic center of the sound system for a studio grade sound.

Note: This system is compatible with all years of 997, Cayman and 987 generation Boxster with or without Bose and or Sound package Plus.

Shipping Time: This product is "made to order" and is custom made for your particular vehicle. This package typically ships within 2-3 business days of order.

Features of the Kit

This kit has been designed to be installed with just basic hand tools. Every part that you will need to complete the job ships with the kit. Full  step by step instructions with detailed photos and 1(800) tech support makes the installation smooth, trouble free, and the final product predictable. This kit is for both the professional as well as "the do it yourself" type.  Some of our customers want to dig into this project themselves and are comfortable with the multiple connections (not plug and play-some familiarity with such things and patience is required), routing wires and cables from the cabin into the trunk area, removal of trim panels, factory radio, etc.  Some of our customers take their cars to a local shop and have part or all of the work done there.  We see many happy customers with both options.

NOTE: Some functions are lost if you have the factory PCM screen, features like the Sport Chrono Package.  Also, audio information no longer displays in the gauge cluster.

HUR Module For Bose Equipped Vehicles

    Note: Bose-equipped cars require a new amplifier or our HUR (Head unit Replacement) adapter when installing an aftermarket headunit. You can choose either or neither at checkout. 

    Read more about this on our FAQ page 

    If your vehicle is "Bose Equipped" you have the choice of adding an HUR module to your order and retaining your Bose amplifier.  Fader control is lost when interfacing with the factory Bose amplifier.

    Non-Bose Equipped Vehicles

    If your vehicle is not "Bose Equipped" you don't have to replace your factory amplifier and you don't need an HUR either. Of course you will want to upgrade your amplifier if you want a boost in sound performance and or if you would like to add a subwoofer. 

      This kit is compatible with our other 997 and Cayman upgrades as well; including our fiberglass Subwoofer enclosures and speaker upgrades. 

      Call for Cayman Subwoofer options
      Boxster owners must use factory subwoofer.
