Re: [regsaudioforum] Re: (OT) Noise cancellation in cars
- IMO the noise cancellation does not necessarily use a feedback loop. I guess it uses some filter and then it simply adds the inverted mic signal to the music signal.. A feedback loop always makes a system slower.
And I can report that the noise cancellation headphone I'm using always in an airplane (Philip xxx..) does not remove low frequencies as well as high frequencies. So it seems to work the other way round compared to Robert's guess.

I think systems like this are likely to be feedback loops
in effect. This would seem the logical way to make such a thing work.
And if it got out of whack, it could just feedback more and more,
like microphone howl and the like, up to the upper limit of its
absolute SPL capacity.
I would surely not want such a thing unless it had a definite upper
SPL limit(which of course it could, since as TM says it does not
need to put out too much power acoustically to do its job).
PS The idea that this is related to room correction is quite right.
And it will have the same problem as room correction: inability to
deal with high frequencies over broad areas. But of course much of
the noise in cars is low frequency. And there it ought to work.
I perceive your cunning plot to goad me to ampliation
- and don't get me started about motor cyclists!
