What would you compare that noise to for someone who's never been around a 4xe? Would it be comparable to say a microwave oven or maybe when your under or near high tension electrical wires. I know one reviewer said when off-road ,meaning stop and crawl type driving, that all he could hear were the electrical contractors opening and closing. I'm not familiar with the high voltage system on the 4xe but with industrial electrical drives and inverters you can always hear the "flow" of power even through a solid state type system.I think so, Just want to be sure it's not indicative of a problem.
It sounds like someone blowing through a whistle at less than full breath. It does seem to get louder while accelerating.
One would think they could have added some lightweight insulation around the primary electrical motor just for that. The first thought I had when reading about the 4xe was how nice it would be to have the functionality of an unlimited Rubicon with just the sound of dirt under your tires. That might be an upgrade they come out with or a DIY mod if it gets really annoying. Hopefully I can find the "ONE" soon and hear it for myself haha.It sounds like someone blowing through a whistle at less than full breath. It does seem to get louder while accelerating.
Hi @RJeep,Picked up my new rubicon 4xe. Everyone says it's supposed to be silent, but there's a high pitched whine when I drive. Is this normal?
