Hi!

I have a Cayman GTS with the Sound Plus Package.
I already upgraded the headunit, and installed the Alpine wireless Carplay (100% recommended).
Now I would like to upgrade the OEM speakers to something better.
I don't know if adding an amplifier is needed, but the speakers are not holding well after you try to punch a little bit.

Any ideas on some models that will be a drop-in speaker upgrade?

Thanks!

Yes, perfect fit. I'm very happy now.
Only thing I would like to change are the speakers... they wont hold much after certain volume... I think a better quality speakers will do the trick... no need for amplifier.

Anyone know a "drop-in" speakers for our cars (Sound+)?

When the Suncoast install kit and an aftermarket head unit are used is all cross functionality with the car lost? I'm thinking of the audio functions displayed in the MFD, and the parking sensor display on the CDR31 screen. To be clear I have a base model audio system, not Bose or above and no nav.

I've got the same Alpine head unit you do and want to upgrade the speakers. What did you end up going with?

Sean, I would love to check out the Alpine head unit on your car, would be possible for me to stop by one of these weekends to see it?
My CS has the standard radio and this is something I am seriously considering, PLMK thanks!

I ended Installing the best head unit I ever found ! Joying ! It was a little job to fit because the screen is larger than the faceplate but hell, wayyyy better than the OEM radio... I did have to purshase the PCM 3.1 interface from Suncoast Porsche to connect my Bose amplifier.
