I’ve been working on upgrading the BOSE system in my Cayenne for a little while now. I tolerated the Bose as long as I could. Starting by changing out the sub in the stock enclosure with an Image Dynamics IDQS-8 dual ohm. I also replaced the center channel speaker with a fatial pro 3” and the dash tweeters with peerless ring radiator tweeters. The mids and highs sounded much better, the sub bass was not enough. I then replaced the factory Bose sub amp with a toro mr3. Better but not playing deep enough. I then built a stacked mdf enclosure to fit inside the spare wheel where the factory enclosure was, and installed a JL 10tw3 d4 in it. Bass is much better, but the overall sound is still lacking for me. I have bought a set of morel elate carbon 9 three ways for the front stage/mid bass and have ordered a Mobridge 8.1.1 amp to replace the factory Bose system. Haven’t installed the morels yet, waiting on the amp. Here’s the progress so far.

sub looks good

Interested to see how you get on with the M0Bridge amp
I am anxious to get the amp too. Probably still a month out. Waiting on chips.

Installed the elate carbons yesterday. They sound incredible, but the Bose amp is not enough power to do them justice due to the impedance difference of the drivers. Can’t wait to get the Mobridge amp

Sub enclosure is about .48cuft stuffed with polyfill. The speaker adapters I made from glued and

stacked pvc trim board and wrapped them inside and out with dynamat. The Morel MM3’s are secured in the stock locations on the backside of the door panels on custom abs adapter plates.

Are those MW9s going to fit behind the standard door speaker grills? Or do you have custom grills planned? I'm planning out a 2004 CTT build right now to replace a non-working Bose system. I know the doors are different designs, but I'm hoping some of the engineering inside the door is similar in dimensions.

They fit behind the factory door panels, had to cut a small piece of plastic to get the depth
