Here’s a quick sound check or sound test of the high audio quality of the Porsche Design 911 Soundbar Speaker that’s made out of the actual Porsche GT3 silencer and twin exhaust (make sure you are plugged into proper speakers/headphones to get a feel of the sound).
The designers who came up with the idea of turning Porsche’s muffler from the legendary GT3 into another well sounding technology, obviously had good ears, because the ambiance of the sound is rich and deep.
This Porsche exhaust module and wireless speaker was originally launched for 2900 Euro / 3500 USD when it was released in Germany, and has since become something of a rare collectors item for Porsche fans and collectors, as it’s difficult to get this stainless steel 911 exhaust speaker new today.
A new limited edition of just 500 units is currently on sale known as the Porsche 911 Soundbar Special Edition Speaker, which is painted in black, and upgraded to 300 watt:
On the technical audio side, the original Porsche Design 911 Soundbar Speaker has a 200 watt capacity with a lot of that coming from the speakers in the stand not in the exhaust, and it features enhanced stereo with 2.1 virtual surround sound, DTS TruSurround virtual surround sound signal processing, Dolby, and precise LipSync voice synchronization if you want to use it as an audio system when watching videos.
Connectivity options are Bluetooth 3.0+ with loss-free aptX technology so it can be used with tablets, smartphones, and computers, and it has optical and coaxial digital inputs, analog input, and even subwoofer output.
The total weight for the Porsche speaker with the stand is just under 20kg, so there’s little chance of the Porsche speaker falling over.
Inside the soundbar stand, there’s a LED display and it comes with a remote control where we have quick access to the most important controls, like power, mute, volume, Bluetooth paring, and so on.
