    Bose opinions please...

    Hi,

    Can anyone who has experienced the Bose system in the Turbo give their honest opinion of it please (sound quality and features)?

    Many thanks!

    If you are serious about sound quality (and I'm not talking true audiophile, gold connectors etc everywhere, just good sound) then you will be disappointed. In particular, the Bass is too boomy, and despite that there is no richness to the sound. I would go for an Alpine system with whichever speakers turn you on. The best guys to go to are Auto Audio in Park Royal.

    Thanks Crayphile!

    I assume all that marketing blurb about the Porsche Bose sounding like a concert hall was just that - blurb!

    Does the MOST wiring have to be totally replaced or can aftermarket systems such as Alpine use the same wiring?

    The MOST wiring stays in place and the aftermarket system has to largely bypass it. I'm no expert though!

    Re: Bose opinions please...

    If you're an audiophile, you would be severly disappointed with the Porsche Bose system.

    Re: Bose opinions please...

    I've had my 02 996TT for 6 months now. I have turned the radio on no more than 5 times during that time and have never used the CD - listening to the glorious engine is enough.

    Re: Bose opinions please...

    Thanks for your input guys - looks like I'll have to budget for good sound system!

    Re: Bose opinions please...

    Mine sounds fine.

    If you turn off the loudness and turn the treble up to 9 and turn the bass down to 5 the system sounds good enough to impress anyone other than a car stereo expert.

    I've sat in cars with 10K systems and there is a big difference, but I'd pocket the 10K unless you really are an audiofile.
