Be sure to become a paid member of Renntech and you can view the relevant TSB's that Loren notes. And yes, drive shaft issues also exist for V6 Cayenne's -- also plastic coolant pipe problems. Search Renntech for more info -- it's all there.

A good place to start is to review all the V6 TSBs, and then look in the forums for more info. It's all been covered.

As to your note, "not a single reply" -- your post was only live for a day... Loren followed-up quickly. Again, becoming a contributing member is well worth it.

Locations where you think only one speaker exists may in fact house more then one -- meaning one speaker grill may be covering multiple speakers. A lot of this is covered in the manuals (general and PCM-specific) -- you can download manuals here on Renntech.

Edit (add two pics).

The attached pics cover Bose configurations but will give you an idea of speaker locations and count.

Hi odix

does the non bose system come with woofer and center spk?

checked the car...counted onli 10spk...thot the base model have atleast 12spk?

any issue:

Any V6 owner notice the engine make a 'boom...boom' sound during cold start-up.....it went away after a short drive....is it misfire?....no warning on the console...my coil cable was repaired 10k miles ago.

For the speaker question check your owner's and PCM manual and, as also earlier noted, keep in mind some grills cover more than one speaker. If this is making you crazy then go to a Porsche dealer and talk to them.

The noise upon start-up (or anytime) is not normal. Run a diagnostic test and capture the codes.

Good luck and enjoy your vehicle.

want to share with all...

Went to the porsche dealer at boise....there is a valve in the inlet manifold that wil divert hot air to the engine during cold start-up...the sound wil be gone after the engine is warm-up.

they did a diagnostic...no codes...everything is fine.
