    Bose

    Please could you share opinions on this option.

    Had it on other P-cars and found its performance rather mixed from model to model.

    Whats is like on the big bus then?

    Re: Bose

    Highly recommended!

    Re: Bose

    remember you dont have the sound effects 3 inches behind your head in a Cayenne. It sounds very good.

    Re: Bose

    I still remember the old sayings "no highs, no lows...must be BOSE" and "BOSE = Bring/Buy Other Sound Equipment".

    However, for a stock stereo in the Cayenne it does not sound too bad. It is not near what an aftermarket system could be (and I have spent well into 5 figures, almost to the point where one could consider that a Porsche is a relative bargain, for systems in previous vehicles...only to have most of them stolen, despite alarm systems, etc.).

    For the cost, integration, less hassle/theft factor, etc. BOSE has made some dramatic improvements.

    In my 911...who listens to the stereo anyway?

    Re: Bose

    Based on what I've personally listened to in my own or family/friends vehicles, this is how I would rate the factory sound systems for SUVs:

    1. Bose - Cayenne
    2. Mark Levinson - Lexus
    3. Standard Sound System - Cayenne
    4. Infiniti QX

    Last: Harmon Kardon - Mercedes ML/GL (these really sound worse than most standard sound systems!!!)

    I'm not into after market, so comments there.

    the Harmon Kardon logic 7 in Land Rover is one of the best sounding stereo's i have heard assuming your measurement criteria is not restricted to a test of shear volume and bass.

    the placement of classical and jazz is amazing and blows the Bose in my 4S.

    Re: Bose

    Again nothing sounds good with the motor next to the reciever.
