Bose Amp issues!

Hi,

My stereo has gone on the blink. I took it to an auto electrician who confirmed it was the amp that was faulty, he didnt seem to know much more.

The amp I have is a 996.645.332.05. I can't seem to find one anywhere and don't fancy going direct to Porsche.

Can anybody advise where I'd be able to pick an amp up from, whether I can buy a compatible amp?

Is this a common issue amongst boxsters?

Any help would be massively appreciated
Thanks
Dan.

Check the for sale section or buy on eBay. You didn't say what year your car is but that might help people find you a replacement part too.

On my 99, I pulled the amp when I replaced it with something better. I can check the part number when I get home. If it is the same, you can have it for $40 plus shipping as I don't really need it any longer. Got a shelf of parts I need to put up for sale one of these days, but the longer I own it the more parts seem to go on the shelf.

My Bose amp recently died and I picked up a used one through dC Automotive www.dcauto.com They were very helpful, shipped quick, and were significantly cheaper than new.

I also looked into getting my old amp refurbished by Becker Autosound Website They do offer a warranty on the rebuild.


I have a 2004 S and the car is currently on its third amp.

I checked mine. Sorry, but it is a 986.645.301.03 and made by Nokia. Doubt if it would work for you.
