A muffler is a cylindrical component that is attached to your vehicle's exhaust pipe to filter out loud noises. These intricate tubes and chambers are tuned to reflect sound waves from the engine. By using two different sound waves that are out of pace with each other, they are able to cancel each other out. This process is called constructive interference; when one wave is at its maximum pressure and another is at its minimum pressure. By the time the waves hit your eardrums, they will not make any sound. The muffler is an effective way to make your engine much quieter.
Whether you drive a car, truck, or SUV from Honda, Subaru, Chevrolet, Nissan, or other, chances are if your vehicle has an internal combustion engine, it has a muffler.
