How Long Should Car Batteries Last?

When your car battery does its job, it doesn’t demand very much attention. But when they get old, they often misbehave and crank the vehicles engine slowly or perhaps not even start the car.

Active Noise Cancellation – Now available in your car!

Automobiles are noisy things. Not only is there outside noise to contend with, your typical car –which is essentially a big, resonating box- generates plenty on its own.

Most of these techniques are rather simple, though. They include filling up body cavities with acoustic foam and gluing tar-like acoustic materials to the inside of car doors. Undercoating provides a measure of noise protection also. Today, however, there is another technique being used by car designers. It’s called Active Noise Cancellation. Though it’s been around for a while, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is just starting to be used in cars. It’s a v...
