Well that depends on the brand and construction...
Some are noting more than a straight tube with a cone filter. (I find it hard to call these "cold" air intakes)
Others use the stock ducting that grabs cooler air from the lower front of the grill to actually give it a chance to get colder denser air.
Main goal is to allow more volume of (hopefully cooler) air flow with less restriction than stock air box/filter...
