Acoustic Sound Damping Foam 1-1/2" x 24" x 18" UL 94
Acoustic Sound Damping Foam 1-1/2" x 24" x 18" UL 94 is rated 4.5143 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good StuffI am installing an in wall/ceiling surround sound system and I decided to seal up the cavities. I purchased this material along with the adhesive and I'm really glad I did, easy to work with and I expect nice results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric Knife cuts it betterI've used this in a lot of speakers and have always been glad I spent the time to dig out the electric knife. Actually saves time in the long run and leaves a nice clean cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job.I used this to make a vocal reflection filter. The foam is nice and think, and fit perfectly with my project. There was little or no odor whatsoever that I noticed. It does a good job of reducing some of the rooms reverb in my recordings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff really works!I wonder what this stuff will look like in thirty years. Other than that, it works great to reduce unwanted resonance in my custom speaker!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to cut, install, use in subwooferUsed this to line the inside of my old Cambridge Soundworks BassCube 12 - which had some polyfill and that was it! More warm sound now with foam and new SA-240B amp installed. Cuts easily with a sharp utility knife.

Acoustic Sound Damping Foam 1-1/2" x 24" x 18" UL 94

Are there any NRC numbers available for this product ? Typically any sound absorbing product has NRC numbers for a standard range of frequencies (100hz, 250hz, 1Khz, etc..). It should be readily available from the manufacturer (Foamex?).

Asked by: PMofMN
I am sorry, there are not any ratings on this foam available. It is mostly intended for inside of speaker cabinets and not specifically for architectural sound control

It is termoresistent this product? Can I put over an engine of a car, under the cover of the engine?

Asked by: Zef1908
The MSDS sheets are available for this product on the product page. The melting point appears to be 350-375 degrees F, so this will probably not be the best choice for close quarters with an engine.

would this foam be better than polyfil in ported bookshelf size speakers?

Asked by: chuck83
Open cell foam and poly fill effectively do the same thing so there may not be any audible difference with the outcome. I usually line the walls or a ported cab with foam or insulation and stuff a sealed cab with poly fill.

What about singing late at night without disturbing others?

If I were to buy a number of these foam pieces to make some sort of vocal booth, would my parents still be able to hear me? My studio is in the basement and they sleep upstairs. I woke them up a couple of times so I am hoping using a foam booth will absorb the noise.
Asked by: nightrocker
This will prevent room reflections but unfortunately I don't think it will affect sound outside the room enough to justify the cost. This is usually something that is considered when the room is designed. Soundproofing is not easy to retrofit.

good for bookshelf speakers?

I have a pair of Dayton Audio B652 6 1/2" bookshelf speakers and i would like to bring out some extra bass and get rid of unwanted peaks. Is this the right product for me? Also, i figure you would have to take out any filler that already exists in the cabinet, and that makes me wonder if i am messing with the "acoustics" too much. So overall, would this be a positive or negative effect on the quality of the sound of these speakers?
Asked by: Dave B
There is no way of saying this will be better or worse for you specifically. This will work well as it is intended, although poly fill will probably be a bit better to help smooth out the low end.

Is this a flexible foam? Can I glue it to a curved surface?

I need to line a curved area, rather than glue the foam to the interior of a box. Is this flexible enough to do that with? Thanks very much.J
Asked by: Jmpurchase22
This is not a rigid foam and should have no trouble with a curved surface.
