We first saw it on the new generation Mercedes S-Class. Now we start to see it mor eoften in luxury cars and the all new Panamera maks no exception. Porsche will use Burmester technology for its most demanding clients.

And the new Panamera marks a real world premiere: the newly developed 3D High-End Surround Sound System from Burmester. Two additional loudspeakers in the A-pillars work with Auro 3D technology to generate a three-dimensional spatial sound pattern that is reminiscent of the best concert halls in the world. 

This optional system available for all Panamera models has a total power output of 1,455 watts plus 21 individually controlled loudspeakers, including a 400-watt, class-D subwoofer and a two-way centre system.

State-of-the-art audio technologies were used, including powerful and highly efficient class-D amplifiers, intelligent algorithms to improve sound quality and the latest developments in Auro 3D processing.

While the surround sound system in the first Panamera featured 16 loudspeakers, the new Panamera features 21 perfectly positioned loudspeakers. The system in the new Panamera comprises a total of eight woofers, three mid-range speakers, two broadband speakers and seven tweeters, as well as a subwoofer at the rear.

The total power output has now been increased by around 40 per cent to 1,455 watts but with a considerably reduced level of energy consumption. 400 watts are available to the subwoofer alone. The amplifiers achieve an efficiency level of over 95 per cent, and because it weighs just 14.3 kg, the Burmester sound system achieves a new optimum value of 0.009 kg/W for its power-to-weight ratio, as is tradition in the sportscar segment.
