180 Technology

What is 180 Technology?

AWE Tuning 180 Technology® works a little bit like this: As exhaust gases exit the engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology® equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers.

Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers.  Depending on the sound requirements of each vehicle, AWE Tuning acoustic engineers adjust the size and location of the ports and the chambers.  By controlling the size and location of these key elements, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers.  The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves re-join the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.

Consistency through change.

AWE Tuning 180 Technology® is not on a “one size fits all” concept. Rather, AWE Tuning engineers design sound cancellation resonators based upon the specific acoustics generated by vehicle types, thereby ensuring perfect sound, every time. It’s one of the reasons AWE Tuning exhausts have earned a reputation for the perfect tone, regardless of application.

What it means to you.

The result? The removal of unwanted tones in all AWE Tuning 180 Technology®-equipped exhaust systems. The sound produced by this formula is the perfect, signature note. Unlocked performance and spot-on tone, every time.
