Any car manufacturer can integrate a sound system into a vehicle. Why not go one step further and embed the driver in a sound system? That was the aspiration for Porsche and Burmester® in the development of the optional Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System. Conceived and tuned specifically for the Cayman, this is high-end technology ‘made in Germany’.
Components used in the car are as sophisticated as the components that Burmester® puts into its high-end home audio systems. How do the numbers sound? 12 amplifier channels with a total output of 821 watts and 12 loudspeakers including an active subwoofer. A particularly special feature is the integration of the active subwoofer into the bodyshell. Not only does this provide ideal conditions for the sound, it is consistent with the principles of lightweight construction as applied in motorsport.
Conceptually, we have broken entirely new ground. The analogue and digital filters of the crossover technology used have been optimally defined for their installation location, and finely tuned following extensive in-car audio testing. The perfect interaction of all loudspeakers and chassis delivers superior bass foundation, definition and impulse accuracy.
As yet unequalled, the result is a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume. All of this is achieved despite the system’s remarkably low overall weight thanks to intelligent Burmester® lightweight technology. The pure, sporty design makes 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.
