Default Musicar Northwest Group Buy — 991 High-End Tweeter Upgrade

We've had a good amount of interest lately in putting together a few simple ways to improve the sound quality in the 991 platform. Because of that, I decided to put together a group buy for our recently developed Dynaudio tweeter system. This is something we've had available as a custom one-off piece for our local crowd, but this group buy allows anyone in need of better sound to acquire a set.



The factory tweeters can be harsh and fatiguing. This upgrade is the best way to easily improve the resolution, clarity, and detail of your Porsche's audio system. Although most of the complaints we get are from Bose owners, the tweeter upgrade is designed to improve the sound of any factory system including Burmester and Sound Package Plus. They are built to utilize factory hardware locations so they are a direct fit. The wiring is direct fit using a plug and play adapter — no modification to the car required. It's also a simple DIY install that should take a professional or enthusiast no more than an hour.


In the kit
  • Custom Dynaudio Tweeter for Porsche
  • Passive Crossover
  • OEM Porsche Burmester Grilles
  • Mounting Hardware


Price - $695 Shipped* (within conus)
*$595 Shipped without Burmester grilles and mounting hardware.

Due to the overwhelming response from the first run we have decided to make these available in batches. Round Two will have 25 slots and we will continue to do runs of 20 as long as the demand is up. Email me to reserve a spot in the queue!

Nothing special. You should use a plastic pry tool to remove the grilles and not a screwdriver, but that's really it. The new tweeters will mount with standard hardware.

I am very curious about this and interested. I know the work and product will be top notch from your posts and accolades on this forum.

I am not an audiophile, do you think the average listener will discern an improvement?

Thanks!

I am the opposite. I wonder if an audiophile will truly appreciate it without a stronger amp and better bass.

Nick had mentioned that the Burmester grill is physically more open than the Bose although I've heard of people dremeling their old grill and using their Bose grill with the Burmester tweeter mod.

Bose tweeters are molded into the cover. Burmester tweeters get mounted to the bracket that is there with the Burmester or not.

The Bose tweeters are truly JUNK. Literally a $5 tweeter. Embarrassing.
