It's kind of the only thing Bose does fairly well. The joke in the home theater world for them is: Bose, better sound through marketing...

Or...

Buy Other Sound Equipment
Better Off with Something Else



I'm an audio engineer and I wholeheartedly agree. Ever wonder why Bose has their own little kiosk in the store where you can't compare their products against anyone else's?

Back to the noise cancellation topic...our Honda Odyssey with the variable displacement VCM V6 uses active noise cancellation through the sound system to reduce the noise of the engine running with two or three dead cylinders.

Yeah, it's just too bad that Honda couldn't figure out how to make their VCM work correctly and without vibration.

I haven't driven any other variable displacement systems (I mostly drive diesels) but the Honda system seems to work well. I can tell when it's activated but only when I try to notice it. Gets that V6 minivan 27mpg highway. Doesn't help city mileage much, but you don't use VCM much in town so the city/hwy spread is bigger.

What? What happened to the old standards?

Bose blows!

or

No highs, no lows, must be Bose.

I was actually surprised by their automobile stuff... in that there was no massive air gushing into it..

I have a 2008 Accord with the 3/4/6 cylinder VCM. I don't need the ECO light in the dash to turn on/off to tell when it's switching... it feels like a little kick in the seat when it shifts mode. Kind of like that little bump you used to get with a lockup torque converter.

I find that mine runs in 3 or 4 cylinder mode a lot in town.

The problem a lot of owners of the earlier VCM system were having was with it staying stuck in 3 cylinder mode when it really should've been running on all 6 cylinders. When it does that there's a lot of vibration felt throughout the whole car... similar feeling to an out of balance wheel.

A number of owners have also experienced excessive oil consumption along the lines of a quart per 1000 miles. That issue is centered (I believe) on the #2 cylinder which is one of the deactivated ones when in 3 cylinder mode. There is a class action settlement in place where Honda is now offering a short block replacement on engines with that condition. In reality, a friend of mine found his replacement engine started to do the same thing after a few thousand miles.

I don't think Honda ever officially 'fessed up to it being a problem with their VCM. All I know is that sometime after the 2010 model year they changed their VCM from a 3/4/6 to a 4/6 only.

I always wished there was a way to deactivate it completely so it always ran on 6 cylinders. That's how irritating their VCM is to me.
