Can it be true that the passengers in a Porsche actually want to listen to music rather than the sound of the engine? We understand your scepticism, but we do have a compelling solution: the BOSE® Surround Sound System.
It is compatible with both Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and the CDR audio system and is fitted as standard in the Panamera Turbo and Panamera Turbo S.
The system comprises nine amplifier channels with a total output of 585 watts (Panamera S Hybrid: 545 watts). Its 14 loudspeakers and 200-watt (Panamera S Hybrid: 160-watt*) active subwoofer deliver a balanced acoustic pattern and transform your Panamera into a concert hall.
In combination with Porsche Communication Management (PCM), the BOSE® Surround Sound System enables playback of audio DVDs and is thus able to make full use of the impressive sound spectrum of 5.1 digital recordings. Of course, you can still play other audio sources such as CDs and MP3s. In stereo, or at the push of a button, in one of the virtual surround modes generated by BOSE® Centerpoint® 2.
The BOSE®-patented AudioPilot® Noise Compensation Technology uses a microphone to continuously measure the ambient noise inside the vehicle and adapts music playback automatically so that a consistent sound is maintained – whatever the driving conditions.
As an innovator in the field, BOSE® has used its considerable experience to adapt the system specifically to the passenger compartment of the Panamera.
Thanks to signal processing technologies developed by BOSE® for the automotive industry, it has been possible to achieve optimum acoustics by tailoring the system to suit the layout of the vehicle interior.
The result is a balanced, faithfully reproduced sound and captivating 360° acoustic experience delivered to all four seat positions. It’s just a pity that, as the driver, leaning back and closing your eyes is not an option.
* On the Panamera S Hybrid, the subwoofer of the BOSE® Surround Sound System is located below the loading edge and consequently reduces the luggage compartment capacity.
