The Porsche Soundsystems
Bose® & Burmester®
 

The road is perhaps the last place in the world where you can still listen to music without disturbance. Reason enough, then, to upgrade your enjoyment the Porsche way.

We like setting new standards. This is the basis of everything we do. Just as with our cars, the aim of Porsche sound systems is to convey emotions. So that every journey becomes a moving experience. Whether you choose to be accompanied by jazz through the city's nocturnal streets, lively pop music on your homeward commute or rock tunes in the mountains.

We create perfectly coordinated sound systems in partnership with the internationally renowned BOSE® and Burmester® brands. These meet the highest standards of power, musicality and precision. Starting with the design of individual components, to fine-tuning while driving, their development is always characterized by dedication and passion for the perfect audio experience. Thereby turning our sports cars into an ensemble, where sound and emotion can reach their full potential.

Porsche sound systems make every journey a premium sound experience. Developed by sound enthusiasts for sound enthusiasts.

Bose® Surround Sound-System.
The way a Porsche sounds is akin to an acoustic fingerprint, and that’s not only true for the engine. That's why the optional BOSE® Surround Sound System, which is perfectly tuned to the specific interior acoustics of each model, was specially developed for Porsche. The BOSE® Surround Sound System results in a balanced acoustic pattern and transforms a vehicle into a concert hall.
Burmester® High-End Surround Sound-System.
Burmester® is one of the most respected premium audio manufacturers worldwide. The Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System owes its eminence to countless details, and one goal: perfection in sound. It transforms sound waves into unique sensory stimuli and music into an exclusive sound experience. The result is an unprecedented rich and natural sound, even at high volumes.

About our sound systems

BOSE® Surround Sound System
The optional Bose® Surround Sound System, with 12 speakers including 100-watt shell-subwoofer and a total output of 570 watts, produces extremely balanced and original sound. The Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound Technology makes it possible to play stereo sources in surround mode, creating a fascinating soundscape. AudioPilot® 2 Noise Compensation Technology ensures that the sound experience can be enjoyed regardless of the driving conditions. Driving noises are detected by a microphone and compensated for in real-time by means of a frequency dependent volume correction calculated through digital signal processing. The BOSE® SoundTrue Enhancement Technology familiar from other Porsche models is highly effective at counteracting the loss of quality through data compression – for example, in the form of MP3 compression – and thus increases sound quality and dynamics. This brings compressed music back to life. The sound becomes clearer and more spacious.

Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System

The optional Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System with 13 loudspeakers including active subwoofer with 300 watts. The system delivers a total output of 855 watts. For music playback, various presets of the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System can be selected in the audio settings of the PCM. The customer can adjust the sound by selecting the presets of Pure, Smooth, Surround and Live to suit a person’s individual mood and the music. Latest-generation air motion transformers (AMT) are used for an unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted playback in the treble range. Voices and musical instruments are even more realistic and clear. To further enhance the music experience and the wide, natural representation of the sound stage in the vehicle, a third air-motion transformer is installed in the center of the dashboard in the new 911. The Sound Enhancer® now also available in the new 911 improves the sound quality of many sources and can restore the quality of compressed source material, such as MP3s streamed via the Internet. The Sound Enhancer® removes bandwidth restrictions, unwanted echoes and dynamic restrictions, thus significantly improving the sound experience. The underlying algorithm significantly improves the quality of music playback in the treble range and in terms of dynamics in particular. By analyzing vehicle data and using a microphone, the Sound Conditioner adapts the sound sensitively to the driving situation in real time.
Note: Burmester speaker grille covers in front door panels are in Silver. Optional Silver interior trims are recommended to complement the door panel speaker grill covers (e.g. Interior Trim in Light Silver Diamar).
Taycan
Taycan
BOSE® Surround Sound System
With 14 loudspeakers including a separate subwoofer, 14 amplifier channels, and an overall output of 710 watts, the optional BOSE® Surround Sound System offers extremely balanced and faithful sound across all seat locations in the Taycan.
Centerpoint® 2 technology enables stereo sources to be played back in Surround mode, creating an incredible soundscape. AudioPilot® Noise Compensation Technology ensures that the sound experience can be enjoyed regardless of the car’s speed. Driving noises are detected by a microphone and compensated for in real-time by means of a frequency-dependent volume correction calculated through digital signal processing.
The BOSE® SoundTrue® enhancement technology counteracts music compression – for example in the form of MP3 compression – extremely effectively, and almost completely restores lost sections in the treble range, This brings compressed music back to life. The sound becomes clearer and more spacious.

Burmester® 3D High-End Surround Sound System

The Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System has 21 speakers with a 2-way center system and a 400-watt active subwoofer. The system delivers a total output of 1,455 watts. The speaker baskets of the low and mid-range speakers are made from die-cast aluminum. In combination with the highly efficient neodymium magnets, this not only improves the efficiency of the loudspeakers, but also ensures improved dynamics during music playback.
The end stages of the bass channels, which control the loudspeakers in the front and rear doors and the subwoofer, now feature Class-D technology. This reduces loss, enabling even greater output reserves for bass playback. The unique Burmester® Air Motion Transformer is extremely lightweight thanks to its special aluminum damping, meaning the ratio of minimum vibratory masses to maximum membrane area is almost perfect. This produces a very fine, clean and clear treble range without any sharpness. Voices and musical instruments sound realistic and clear. The Sound Enhancer improves the sound quality of numerous digital sources and can restore the quality of compressed source material, such as MP3s streamed via the Internet. The Sound Enhancer removes bandwidth restrictions, unwanted echoes and dynamic restrictions, thus significantly improving the sound experience. The underlying algorithm significantly improves the quality of music playback in the treble range and in terms of dynamics in particular.
The Auro 3D format has revolutionized the sound experience throughout the entire automotive sector. The system can create a realistic concert hall atmosphere in a car without using a simple spatial effect program, as found in cinemas. Together with Galaxy Studios, the global benchmark for perfect music playback, a special algorithm was developed that conveys the kind of perfect 3D impression during music playback that is normally found only in concert halls. Using Auro 3D technology, a dynamic 3D sound experience can be generated from any source material. Two additional loudspeakers in the A-pillar help to produce the unique soundscape in the car. With all of these technological details and improvements, the Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System delivers a highly evocative music experience.
