I claim:
1. An active noise cancellation muffler for a motor vehicle exhaust conduit including at least one transducer with a diaphragm, comprising:
a housing including walls defining an enclosed chamber exposed to at least one side of said transducer diaphragm;
a port extending through a housing wall for acoustic communication between said chamber and the exhaust conduit; and
an acoustically permeable partition separating said transducer diaphragm from the exhaust conduit.
2. The invention as defined in claim 1 wherein said partition divides said chamber into inner and outer compartments.
3. The invention as defined in claim 1 wherein said housing comprises a tubular peripheral wall and two longitudinally spaced apart end walls.
4. The invention as defined in claim 3 wherein said tubular peripheral wall is cylindrical.
5. The invention as defined in claim 4 wherein said partition is round.
6. The invention as defined in claim 1 wherein said muffler comprises two transducer diaphragms and wherein said housing includes walls defining a first common chamber exposed to one side of each transducer diaphragm, a second chamber exposed to the other side of one said transducer diaphragm and a third chamber exposed to the other side of the other transducer diaphragm.
7. The invention as defined in claim 6 wherein said housing includes a first port acoustically coupling said common chamber with the exhaust conduit, a second port for acoustically coupling said second chamber to the exhaust conduit and a third port for acoustically coupling said third chamber to the exhaust conduit.
8. The invention as defined in claim 7 wherein said common chamber includes a first partition separating said first port from said one transducer diaphragm and a second partition separating said first port from said other transducer diaphragm.
9. The invention as defined in claim 1 wherein said partition comprises a flexible membrane.
10. The invention as defined in claim 9 wherein said flexible member is taut.
11. The invention as defined in claim 9 wherein said membrane comprises a polymer membrane.
12. The invention as defined in claim 9 wherein said membrane includes reinforcing fibers.
13. The invention as defined in claim 12 wherein said reinforcing fibers are made of aromatic polyamide.
14. The invention as defined in claim 13 wherein said membrane is made of Kevlar impregnated silicone.
15. The invention as defined in claim 12 wherein said member includes a polyethylene coating.
16. A transducer housing for active noise cancellation in a conduit comprising:
a peripheral wall defining an enclosed chamber;
a port extending through said peripheral wall in fluid communication with said chamber and the conduit;
a transducer mount for securing a transducer with its diaphragm exposed to said chamber;
an acoustically permeable partition for separating said mount from said port.
17. A method for coupling transducers to a motor vehicle exhaust conduit comprising:
enclosing at least one side of at least one transducer diaphragm in a housing chamber;
porting said chamber in fluid communication with the exhaust conduit;
partitioning said chamber with an acoustically permeable membrane separating said transducer diaphragm from said port.
18. The invention as defined in claim 17 wherein said partitioning step comprises installing a silicone impregnated polyurethane, fiber-reinforced membrane.
19. The invention as defined in claim 18 wherein said fiber is made of aromatic polyamide.
