Canton & Porsche Partner Up On New High-End Speaker
A new Porsche could cost you $320,000, but if that is a bit stiff on the budget, how about a new pair of Porsche speakers that will only cost you $1,199?
Canton, the German sound company, has released a new Genuine Porsche 911 GT3 Speaker, which has gone on sale today in Australia.
Imported by Indi Imports, who last week dumped Q Acoustic speakers for an as yet unnamed speaker brand, the new Canton rev head speakers are set to prove popular with not only Porsche fans but those who love European-made speakers.
Canton and Porsche Design have partnered up to produce a new luxury speaker – the Porsche 911 GT3 Speaker – which is modelled from the original exhaust pipe of the 911 GT3.
The 911 GT3 Speaker is as premium as the Porsche, with ventilated full-range 8.6mm neodymium drivers to deliver deep bass, clear treble, a rich middle range and accurate sound. Users can link up two 911 GT3 speakers for stereo sound.
It is made from a premium aluminium, and features Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and apt-X technology (which optimises the wireless transfer of music from smart devices).
The battery lasts for up to 24 hours.
Its recommended retail price is $1,199 and will be available through Indi Imports-authorised Canton dealers from August.
