Help

Just purchased a Porsche Boxster 986 (2004) the front left speaker and front left door speaker wasn't working. I took the dash speaker out and found a plug that didn't fit speaker and two yellow wires that were cut (one with a brown line). I connected these to speaker and it now works but I don't know if it was cut of the loom or if there is another plug as front door speaker still doesn't work. I can't find a wiring schematic

The door speakers are bass only, it may still be working. Many have thought their door speakers were broken when in fact they were not.

Take a look here:

I replaced my door speakers with the Pioneers in this thread:

Good luck

I just noticed that you have the Bose system which is different from what I have. You will need to do a search on this forum for replacing the Bose system.

I think the dash speakers are the same just Bose subwoofer behind headrest

Thanks for your help.

What's the thoughts on black car with red air intakes to match red calippers?
