Lots of gadgets are going smart in our time, our vehicles and their components are no different. Xforce released one particular device that will change the way we use aftermarket exhaust systems altogether. The VAREX muffler or VAREX exhaust system is a smart exhaust that adapts to your driving inputs. The Varex smart muffler is a patented* technology that combines both the design of the stock muffler and the performance muffler into one single compact unit. What is special about the VAREX muffler is that the valves are infinitely controllable and can be actuated remotely through unique features.
Xforce did not stop there however, because during their research they noticed the subjective nature of exhaust notes and how each driver perceives the perfect exhaust note differently. When discovering this, Xforce developed the ‘Matrix mode’ which can tune the sound of the exhaust in oder to find the perfect sound level. Xforce can dictate sound by three vehicle parameters; engine RPM, throttle position, and speed. Based on these findings the ‘Matrix Mode’ was created to gauge the ‘band range’ using the smartphone app and allows users to assign a specific exhaust tone to their vehicles and set the ‘Band Snap’ using some help.
The last feature included with the VAREX mufflers and the Smart Box is the ‘Geo Mode’, which inherently is the most usable feature since it allows you to geo-tag locations using the smartphone app and lower or highten the volume of your exhaust. In a densely populated area like to GTA (Greater Toronto Area) this feature comes in handy so you can avoid disturbing neighbours or attracting too much attention in certain areas. The VAREX smart box and smartphone app automatically recognize what areas you’ve outlined and adjust your valved exhaust. This feature goes a long way to showcase the usability and user-centric interface development that Xforce puts into its products. Along with this Xforce produces complete systems for popular makes and models making them a disruptor in the aftermarket exhaust world.
