When two iconic German manufacturers join forces, the result is special. We’re referring to Porsche and Berlin-based Burmester®, one of the most respected manufacturers of high-end audio equipment worldwide, and the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System. The technologies behind the system are based on the finest premium home audio systems Burmester® has to offer. The system owes its eminence to countless details, and one goal: perfection in sound.
The system has 12 amplifier channels with a total output of more than 821 watts, 12 loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 300-watt class D amplifier, a total diaphragm surface area of more than 1,340 cm², and a frequency response of 35 Hz to 20 kHz.
For the first time in a 911, Burmester® has introduced the patented integral subwoofer, which replaces the familiar separate subwoofer and loudspeaker arrangement of other systems. This saves weight and has a beneficial impact on acoustic performance.
Crossover technology has been carried over more or less unmodified from the home audio sector. Analogue and digital filters have been optimally defined for their new installation location and finely tuned after extensive in-car audio testing.
The tweeters are ribbon-based air motion transformers (AMT) that have been designed specifically for the 911. For unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability. All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver superior bass foundation, definition and impulse accuracy. As yet unequalled in the 911, the result is a natural and richly textured spatial sound even at top volume.
The pure, sporty design with galvanised surrounds and Burmester® logos on selected loudspeakers make it clear that the appeal of the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System is as much about the visual as it is the audio. Typically Porsche.
Cue the encore.
