Ferrari Seeks Patent for Elaborate Intake Amplification System

0 comment

Ferrari has filed a patent software with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Workplace for a “system for the amplification of the consumption sound” of an inner combustion engine. The system is slightly totally different than the “Lively Sound Design” populating lots of at present’s trendy efficiency automobiles — a setup that includes piping in engine noises by way of the car’s sound system (à la BMW), via a speaker hooked up to the firewall (e.g. Volkswagen), or by redirecting some consumption air via a diaphragm and into much less-insulated areas of car (Porsche).

For Ferrari’s new system, the final answer appeared to be the best match. However relatively than operating noise by means of a singular valve and pipe, the Italians need to use every runner of the consumption manifold — presumably to create a richer and fewer-synthetic sound. The patent request even states that the amplification pipe produces a noise that’s “very nice to the human ear.” Filed in April of this yr and clearly written by some tremendous-clever automaton that’s obsessive about human ears, the system appears fairly complicated. 

The truth is, schematics wizard Bozi Tatarevic — who shared his discover with Jalopnik — alluded to it being a bit too elaborate. However that is Ferrari we’re speaking about right here. Definitely their clientele can be prepared to to endure no matter further maintenance is required to have pitch good engine noises piped into the cabin, proper?

From Jalopnik:

All of this sounds neat in concept, as it will transmit one thing near an genuine sound from the engine however it will require a spaghetti of tubes harking back to previous air injection system within the early days of emissions discount. It might additionally introduce at lest 9 extra factors of failure for the consumption system since these tubes can be related to the consumption runners that are behind the throttle physique and mass air movement sensor so any sort of leak from any runner would trigger the engine to run wealthy as a result of unmetered air might enter the consumption.

Whereas one of these failure might sound far-fetched, it isn’t unusual to see failures and consumption leaks on the Ford Fiesta ST which has an analogous sort of system they usually solely have a single tube going into the consumption manifold.

Potential failures apart, the general profit is a nicely-insulated and quiet cabin that solely provides you the sounds you need to listen to. However it looks like Ferrari is taking the lengthy street on this one, as it might be simpler to easily use much less sound deadening — saving some weight within the course of. We’re simply going to imagine this system is meant for individuals buying for one thing like a GTC4Lusso and never a 488 Pista with an aluminum flooring.
