I have a larini club sport 6" side exit exhaust on my elise and have just recently crossed the 1000 mile mark with it on the car. The past two times driving, with top off it seems that the exhaust is making a lot less noise, not a bad thing, but is this to be expected or am I slowly going deaf?

I have a drony JanSpeed (Lotus Stage 2) exhaust.

Mind-numbing hearing threat (I use protection for long drives) at 4k RPM on the freeway. :mad:

Fantastic shriek at high RPM in tunnels! :D

(You're never to old to be immature.)

Sound is always more tolerable with top off than top on.

In-cabin acoustics?

IDK. :confused:

Never thought of in cabin acoustics. That could be it. Thanks.
