Enclosure Sound Dampening

Enclosure Sound Dampening

Enclosure sound dampening can be used to line the inside of speaker or subwoofer enclosures to improve the sound quality, as lining the inside of enclosures creates the illusion of a larger enclosure. It can also help control the displacement of sound waves (bouncing back off walls and distorting the speaker/subwoofer cone movement) within the enclosure.
 

Speaker Enclosures

A majority of after-market speakers are designed to replace standard manufacturer speakers, installed in door panels which have large enclosures. As a result, conveniently sized speaker enclosures (enclosures designed to fit in places where space is of a premium e.g. in a car interior) can often be too small to produce quality sound. Lining the inside of the speaker enclosures with a sound dampening wadding will create the illusion of a larger enclosure, often resulting in better sound quality.

We recommend that you try running your speakers (within the enclosures) with and without sound dampening wadding, also play around with the amount of sound dampening wadding that is installed.

It may be that you want the speaker enclosures to produce 'punchy' sounds, if so - you may find that you prefer very little (or even no) sound dampening wadding. On the other hand you may want the complete opposite and end up installing several layers of sound dampening wadding to produce deeper mid and bass notes.

Please Note Always ensure there is sufficient room around the speaker for it to breathe.
 

Subwoofer Enclosures

If subwoofer enclosures are designed specifically for a certain subwoofer you should only need to line the interior of the enclosure if you are having problems with sound distortion. Subwoofer enclosure sound distortion is caused by the corners of boxes stopping the smooth displacement of sound waves, or in other words - sound waves bouncing back off the internal walls and distorting the subwoofer cone movement. Lining the inside of the subwoofer enclosure with a sound dampening wadding will help prevent this distortion.

Our standard subwoofer boxes have been designed with sound quality in mind and are built to the correct volume (averages) for the specific subwoofers size (8", 10", 12" or 15"). However, (in theory) the bigger the subwoofer enclosure the deeper the bass note produced. As a result, lining the inside of the subwoofer enclosure with a sound dampening wadding will create the illusion of a larger enclosure, often resulting in deeper bass.

We recommend that you try running your subwoofer (within the enclosure) with and without sound dampening wadding, also play around with the amount of sound dampening wadding that is installed.

It may be that you want the subwoofer enclosure to produce 'punchy' tight bass, if so - you may find that you prefer very little (or even no) sound dampening wadding. On the other hand you may want the complete opposite and end up installing several layers of sound dampening wadding to produce deeper bass notes.

Please Note Always ensure there is sufficient room around the subwoofer for it to breathe.
