    MYTH or TRUTH

    i've read toms of post saying that carpeting an enclosure will cause
    you to lose a db
    and i've read post saying it's not true.
    so what's the truth behind this.
    is it a MYTH

    i do not believe there is any correlation between carpet and volume. unless you're carpeting the inside of the box.

    Re: MYTH or TRUTH

    depends.

    some people have gained decbiles by covering their walls\enclosures with duct tape, or even epoxy and sanding to make it smooth. others had no effect. carpet can dampen sound waves so i can see how it might effect this, but if you are talking about a daily driver, you wont notice it eaither way.

    this is like 1\10 of a decible stuff.

    i can tell by the question that you have no idea, so dont concern yourself, carpet it if you want to you will not notice anything besides cosmetics.

    If you are driving daily in a car with full int. i don't think it would matter.Maybe if the car was stripped with nothing in it or a wall,it might hurt?I say call myth busters!
