Sound Proofing

Sometimes overlooked, sound deadening plays an important role for any car audio installation. We have an excellent display for you to come and see working in our showroom to demonstrate the advantages of sound deadening.   Whether you use a little or a lot, sound deadening makes a MASSIVE difference to any audio system, even the factory one. We recommend using the products by Skinz.

Skinz

This product is a three step solution to improve and protect any vehicle speakers and when used in conjunction with other selected brands you will receive a 3 year extended warranty on the speakers you choose.

image1 (1) Reference Damping Technology

The first step is to use a product which eradicates rattles and vibrations for a superior musical performance.

Inherent problems due to road noise and car panel vibration which can be caused by the mechanical movement and the displacement of air by speakers has a negative effect on the SPL and sound quality of your car audio system.  This can be overcome by using Skinz damping product on the metal panels behind the speaker and around the speaker.

Acoustic Sound Wave Diffuser

Skinz Wave Diffuser is an ultra dense foam damping material used extensively to control acoustics in the recording studio industry.  Now specially treated to reject moisture it’s benefits can now be achieved in car door applications.  Its sinusoidal profile helps eliminate rear sound waves from reflecting back through the speaker cone causing sound cancellation.  By attenuating unwanted sound waves from behind the speaker, greater sound energy is gained.  Thanks to its excellent elasticity, flexibility and damping properties, Skinz Wave Diffuser will help deliver a far more open dynamic midrange with a much tighter mid/bass performance from any speaker.

Panel Liner

IMG_4912Step 3 is a product which is applied to the top of the Reference system. Skinz Panel Liner offers a vast improvement in noise suppression when fitted on top of Skinz sound deadening and installed between the door card panel and door.  Formulated to fit complex forms, this thick flexible acoustic insulating foam improves the listening environment in a car by radically reducing the effects of panel amplified road noise.  Available in 6mm and 10mm thickness.

 

Low SPL and Poor Bass Performance

Subwoofer distortion and low SPL result when your subwoofer causes vibration and movement of your vehicles body panels because the vehicle was not made to contain excessive sound pressure levels (SPL).

Skinz is one of the most effective and easiest ways to control sound.  When the vehicle is stabilized with Skinz, the maximum potential of your subwoofer is realized.  You get the tightest, loudest bass that your subwoofer can produce.

Road Noise

The faster you drive, the louder the road noise, as the road noise increases your music goes away.  A new amplifier can make the music louder, but it can’t restore the music hidden by the high noise level.  Much of this noise enters your vehicle through the doors, as this is the thinnest material in the vehicle.

Using Skinz in the doors, restores as much dynamic range as a new amplifier adds, even with an amplifier that is double the wattage of your old system.  Skinz and a new amplifier will maximize your total system and you will Hear More Music.

Testimonials

I recently visited Source Sounds to have a new security system fitted to my Land Rover Defender. They are 170 miles from where I live. The whole experience from the time I first made contact with them was superb, trouble free and a pleasure. Whilst there I also invested in a dash cam which they hard wired and fitted for me. Despite all of the work carried out, when I collected the vehicle there was no sign that anyone had interfered with vehicle, inside and out. Paul spent an hour plus with me on collection to explain the use of the items fitted. I was also assisted with hotel transport and securing my vehicle overnight. No wonder people travel miles to use their service. I won’t hesitate to use again.

I have had several products installed by Source and have always been happy with their service. They are a great bunch of guys who take the time to understand your needs and provide professional advice. No pushy sales just pure knowledge and friendly advice. I would not trust anyone else with my car audio and security.
