i was reading the 08 accord catalog, and it says when cruising at highway speeds, the engine will cut out 3 cylinders (v6 model) to save gas, and once that engeges, the radio speakers will play a sound to make that extra road noise go away.
does anyone know what noise is it? it will be cool if i can put that into a cd and play it in my civic, it will totally sound/feel like a lexus on the highway
I test drove an 08 Accord here the about five days ago and it is unnervingly quiet.
My understanding is the sound system is independent of the CD / radio player and is programmed to send opposing sound waves to those picked up by in cabin microphones produced by the fewer cylinders (either 4 or 3).
How this would work in another car is beyond my understanding of physics and electronics but it is an effective and viable system in the Accord.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
