Yorba Linda, CA -- Tim McCool, president of Cobra Engineering, America's leading manufacturer of high performance motorcycle exhaust systems today announced the introduction of Cobra's latest in a long list of top-performing breakthrough products. According to McCool, the company's new Sound Vault System is the motorcycle industry's first "total exhaust management system," and is the latest work of Cobra Engineering's award-winning product development team.
"The Sound Vault System is designed to give any rider total control of his or her motorcycle's exhaust sound level," said McCool. "Not only will the new SVS707 store any unused sound, but the system will greatly boost most bikes' horsepower. The new system is currently undergoing certification testing with DOT and the EU."
Here's how it works: The Sound Vault unit intercepts the bike's conventional muffler and routes it through the Sound Vault System. Inside the easy to install muffler-like canister is an intricate carbon-fiber micro-maze of one-way chambers. These capture any unused decibel levels of the engine by trapping and storing the bike's surplus sound. When full, the Cobra Sound Vault will store up to 1200 hours of captured engine sound before the rider needs to go to one of the many franchised dump stations for discharging a bike's stored exhaust notes. Fees will depend on how many hours are being dumped.
In a recent interview in Science World Magazine, Cobra's chief product development engineer, Des Abell, stated "We can now offer the discerning motorcycle enthusiast total exhaust control tuning from mild to wild." Abell went on to announce that motorcycle riding technicians from high-end audio giants Boze Audio and Sonie Electronics have joined the Cobra development team.
By means of a patented glass and titanium valve system, the Sound Vault's stored sound is "dumped," into the disposal site's massive one-way Ingestion chamber. As one might expect, Sound Vault disposal sites can be extremely loud while they are storing the sounds of several hundred individual dumps. Franchises will be required to go through a two week SVS school to take the risk out of any injury to workers or customers. In fact, testing by the CPSC found just the slightest risk of injury to anyone within a 50-foot radius of the dumpsite's ingestion tube.
One of the great benefits of this new device is the Sound Vault's handlebar mounted control module so the rider can actually adjust the sound level of his bike to suit conditions. Built-in sensors instantly store decibel output that is greater then the rider's selected dB level. The system can be adjusted to one of five levels so that a SVS707 equipped bike can nonchalantly cruise through a quiet neighborhood or past local law enforcement patrols without concern. The rider can then "adjust" the bike's sound level as desired.
All SVS units will come with a DVD instruction disc plus a sound clip sample of the five available sound gathering levels. There is also a digital audio demonstration of the sound dumping procedure where customers are cautioned to be careful.
The SVS707 will be available retail direct only at first, suggested retail price has not yet been set.

Well, I've already looked into this, and I've applied for an excess sound disposal permit here in Richmond.

I'm going to try and recycle the decibles into my own bike...which won't have one of those fancy sound vault exhaust chambers and then my signature will REALLY mean something.
:bigthumbsup:
