After seeing some of the work we’ve done to other Porsches on our website, a client from Chantilly recently called our team at Westminster Speed and Sound to discuss stereo system upgrade options for his 2014 Porsche. The client decided he wanted better sound and modern technology, so he chose a new radio, amplifier and speaker solution that would give him everything he could want.
Porsche Radio Upgrade Delivers Modern Technology
We started the project by removing the factory-installed radio and speakers to make way for the upgrades. The client chose a Sony XAV-AX5600 multimedia receiver to be the heart of the new audio system. This radio features a bright, clear 6.95-inch color touchscreen display and has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration built in. We added a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner as well as a USB extension to the center console and a USB and HDMI port in the glove box that connect to the radio. Additionally, the NavTV backup camera on the rear of the car makes parking and maneuvering safer. Looking at the attached photos, you can see that this Sony radio looks right at home in the dash of this Boxster with the new trim bezel – almost as if it came from the factory.
Speaker and Amplifier Upgrade Deliver Amazing Sound
The client wanted the audio system to be clearer and play louder. We mounted a Match UP7DSP amplifier under the seat and wired it to a Blam Live Series L200P 8-inch component set and a pair of LM80 3-inch midrange drivers. We mounted the new speakers in the factory location using custom expanded PVC mounting adapters. We finished by configuring the digital signal processor in the amplifier to divide the audio frequencies between all the new speakers and calibrating the equalizer and delay settings to deliver great sound.
