Hi guys -- now a proud owner of a TLX 2.4 w/ Tech.


I need a little help with how the ANC works and I hope this is the right spot since I cannot find an active thread on this.


My experience is that when I am driving on the highway, say 45mph or more, I notice an airy, echo-y type of sound whenever I am approaching other cars or when cars pass me, like there is a feint synthetic sound being dispersed from the front speakers and dash speaker. All of this is with the sound system OFF.


Is this the ANC? My TLX is really quiet, just confused on what this sound is....

Congratulations!

Just like unleaded vs. premium, everyone has an opinion on ANC.

Hopefully this will give you plenty to read up on. :D

Thanks -- Yes, I had read the ELC/ANC radio deal and the turning off of the ANC to improve radio performance prior to posting that, but nothing that explains how the ANC works in layman's terms. I'll keep looking.

Here's a really good article that I found over at the MDX forums which explains the ANC and how it works. It's a bit older but the principal is the same.

If yours seems to be causing strange noises I might suggest taking another one for a drive to see if it does the same or if it's specific to yours. I can't say that I've noticed any strange or excessive noise from mine.
