Per­for­mance ex­haust man­u­fac­turer Mill­tek Sport is about to change the game with their new ‘Ac­tive Sound’ tech­nol­ogy. They’re cur­rently per­form­ing fi­nal beta test­ing and the fi­nal prod­uct should soon be avail­able to fit any petrol, diesel or even elec­tric car. So what is it? In short, it’s a way of choos­ing how your ex­haust sounds. So your diesel daily-driver can sound like a V8 mon­ster at the touch of a but­ton. The sys­tem works by fit­ting a car­bon-fi­bre speaker into a mo­tor­sport-grade stain­less steel hous­ing. That pro­vides the sound, which is con­trolled by a clever al­go­rithm that changes the sound to match the road speed and throt­tle po­si­tion, so it should be ex­tremely re­al­is­tic. You’ll be able to se­lect from a range of engine sounds, all of which can be se­lected us­ing the ac­com­pa­ny­ing smart­phone app. This isn’t like those cheap sys­tems that play noises through your car’s speak­ers, ei­ther. The noise lit­er­ally comes out of your car’s tailpipe. It’s as re­al­is­tic as fake gets. This should be great fun to play with when Mill­tek put it into pro­duc­tion.
