    the truth about dampening? jlaine? anyone?

    hey- i was wondering if anyone could and would be willing to explain the application of dampening...how does it work? whats the best way to use it? how an it change the sound of a sub setup? ect.

    i was thinking maybe jlaine or someone could give me a link or something to a good explanation...or explain it if he has time

    any info greatly appreciated- just trying to get a good understanding of what it's all about...

    there are different theories about sound damping material.

    what i was always told was that it absorbs energy or somthin like that. most people around here will tell you that it adds weight, which lowers the frequency at which something rattles. either way you rattle less. ill try to find more info.

    "Absorbers consist of an open or closed cell foam that reduce unwanted noise by absorbing air born sound waves and converting them into thermal energy (heat)."

    thats what ive always heard.

    Second Skin
    Whether you are restoring a muscle car or designing a competition car stereo system Second Skin Audio will help you get maximum results for minimum prices!
    Second Skin products are proven to:

    Improve Sound quality

    Increase SPL

    Decrease rattles and vibrations

    Reduce distortion caused by panel flex

    Increase dynamic range of your stereo system

    Decrease road, engine, and exhaust noises

    Improve sound comfort levels



    Absorbers
    Absorbers consist of an open or closed cell foam that reduce unwanted noise by absorbing air born sound waves and converting them into thermal energy (heat). The denser the foam is the more sound is absorbed. Common problem areas include floors, doors, firewalls, and any open cavity areas of your car that resonate. Absorbers reduce road, engine & exhaust noise. Second Skin absorbers include:

    Spectrum

    Liquid Generation




    Dampers
    Dampers are the most common type of material used in car audio and restoration projects. Usually made of elastomer materials such as vinyl or PVC. Damping materials are applied directly to vibrating surfaces. The damper material absorbs vibrations on car panels converting them into heat. Dampers also add weight to car panels, which helps lower resonance frequencies, making it harder for panels to vibrate. Dampers are effective on all areas of a vehicle to control vibration rattles and stereo distortion. For best results use in conjunction with a composite to reduce road, engine & exhaust noise. Second Skin Dampers include:

    Damplifier

    Damplifier Extreme




    Composites
    Composites are a combination of different sound deadening material. As sound waves pass through the composite they have several layers to penetrate, each layers serves as a shield that absorbs and reflects sound waves. Once the sound enters the composite it is trapped. Composites are the superior choice when deadening your car. Second Skin composites include:

    DampX is black with a plastic release liner
    Damplifier is silver with a papaer release liner.
    let me know if I need to correct this.

    Ahhh... BUT...

    That's foam... literally...

    The "deadening" we put in cars 99% of the time is an asphalt-based material with an adhesive lining. It's primary job is to mass load the panels, reducing overall body resonances and coupling ability.
