Porsche 996 Digital Sound Processing option

There was a customer’s Porsche 996 in the workshop today and I spotted it had a rare option – Digital Sound Processing or DSP.

I can’t remember the last time I saw this. Digital Sound Processing was an addition to the Porsche Sound Package (usually known as Bose)and consisted of a control panel in the lower part of the centre console. It was effectively a graphic equaliser and allowed you to modify the sound to suit the sort of music you were playing and your personal taste.

I had a quick play around with it but, like a graphic equaliser, didn’t find it particularly beneficial over and above the already decent Bose system. So, Digital Sound Processing is an interesting and rare option for a Porsche 996 but not one you should actively go looking for.
