Jay,
Thanks for the link! It was an absolute pleasure chatting with you before! I also believe this will work, I am going to bite the bullet and order one. And yes, I am looking for an under seat install.

I just finished the rear speaker install on my 98 986. I also changed the radio from the CDR-210 to the CDR-220 as well as the front speakers.

I used Polk DB-351s in the back (1 each side) and DB-401s in the front.

Nothing remarkable to report about the install except a few details.

I made speaker mounts out of 1/8" plywood from the hobby store, cut out with a dremel tool.

I made the grills from decorative aluminum sheet I found at Hobby Lobby. I trimmed it to fit, painted them black (along with the plywood). I held it all together with black E6000 glue. It came out great.

The hardest part was running the wires, along the ride side per the 101 projects book.

I did find the correct connector pins to go into the existing brown connector that plugs into the radio. Search for "ES#470511" on ECS tuning. They are only $0.99 each. By the way, ES#470510 is the same pin, but for smaller wire .

The pins are easy to crimp with a "Molex Open Barrelled Pin Crimper" like this.

Just wanted to put the part numbers out there for someone else.

BTW - the system sounds 1000% better than the stock paper speakers and CDR-210. I was going to do door speakers and an amp but I think this is good enough for me. I love the look of the CDR-220. Very retro Porsche. I like watching it light up "Porsche" when it turns on.

Hey Dave,
Glad you finally got "My" radio installed! I've still got the 6 channel amp if you ever decide to go that way.

Wiring to Amplifier? '03 986 CDR23

I know this is an old thread but hopefully still alive.
I installed the OEM rear speaker kit some time ago but became frustrated with the final wiring.
I cannot figure how to complete the wiring to the amplifier in the Frunk.
Car is a 2003 986 with the original CDR23.
Thanks,
Pete

I recently pulled OE rear speakers out of a car that had a CDR-220. The speakers were connected directly to the head unit. Not sure if the CDR-23 system will have the same plug.

Here is the wiring diagram for the CDR23. If memory serves, the amp in the frunk only drives the dash speakers and door subs.
