70-1787 The Correct Harness for 996s with Bose or Hifi
2002 Porsche 911 Carrera
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is the correct harness for any Porsche 996 with Bose or HiFi system up until 2002 (factory door speakers). Crutchfield has it wrong on their website, if you select a 2002 911 lets say, without Navigation but WITH Bose, the crutchfield website says you need 70-1784. WHICH IS WRONG. You need 1787 since you have a small yellow plug that connects to the factory installed amp; which this harness connects to using the red RCA harness in the picture above. So for reference, if you have a porsche 2002 and older, with hifi or bose system, please purchase and use 70-1787 and not 1784; as you need the red plug to tie into the small yellow plug in the factory harness. Crutchfield team needs to update. Any 996 2002 and prior (after 2002 it uses commlink and this can't be used) with Bose or Hifi radio with a factory amp has to use 1787.
