Sonic Barrier 1" Acoustic Sound Damping Foam with PSA 18" x 24"
Per latest sales flyer, it states;.. Create an acoustically larger cabinet space, which allows a driver to work in a smaller cabinet. How much of this product would be needed to add 1 cubic feet to a 2 cubic foot box ? Using part# 260-525.
When we say acoustically larger, we mean a lower Qtc. This is not exactly the same thing as making the cabinet physically larger per se. If you wanted to provide the woofer you are using, we could tell you if a small, medium or large amount of fill or lining would be closest to the Qtc of a 3 cubic foot cabinet.

Do you have this foam in larger sizes? I need 3feet x 2feet.
We only offer this foam in the 18" x 24" size, although two sheets will cover a 3' x 2' area perfectly without cutting.

Purchased a pair of Advent Maestro speakers. The front baffle was treated with a foam covering to reduce diffraction effects. Would this material suffice to replace the original foam which was torn up on one speaker?
Yes this will work fine for that application.

Would sonic barrier or acousta-stuf be better for absorbing back waves and reducing in-box reflections in a .2 cubic foot box made of 1/2'' mdf for a 4 inch midrange speaker that will be playing from 150 to 3000 Hz? what about mlv, ccf, or other things?
I would recommend Acousta Stuf for this application. The total amount required is up to you but it may required a fairly heavy fill.

Recomendations on using this product in car doors?
I have used this foam in different thicknesses in speaker boxes with good results. I am replacing speakers in the back door of my Jeep Grand Cherokee and the inside of the door looks like a good spot for this acoustic damping foam. Will it absorb too much water?
Yes water absorbtion will be an issue since this is open celled foam. I cannot imagine it would last too long in an application like this so I would not recommend it.

Is there any technical information available on the absorption characteristics of this material?
Yes, there is absorption info in this product's MSDS PDF. You can find that PDF in the right hand margin of the 1" Sonic Barrier Web page on PE's site. I linked the PDF here: http://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/more-info/sonic-barrier-msds.pdf
