Engine Sound

In our 2015 JGC the engine sounds great under acceleration. I recall something about sound being pumped into the cabin but can't recall exactly what is being used. Does anyone have confirmation on this and how it is designed?


The sound on my new JKU (same 3.6, different trans) sounds nothing like it and I'm curious.

This is on an Altitude though so no ANC. I swear though that there is sound being added to the cabin. Perhaps the tube on the intake that disappears into the back of the engine bay?

I wonder why the JGC sounds so much better then. It's sounds more refined and "throaty".
