Sound Proofing

Is your vehicle Noisy inside?  Does it rattle when you turn your stereo up?

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.

Reference Damping Technology
Skinz1
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 Diff
Step 2 is a product which sits directly behind the speaker to reduce back waves, ensuring a tighter punchy mid/bass speaker performance.

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
Step 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 way 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

A few niggles at first that were not the fault of Source Sounds. But even though it wasn’t their fault, they spent hours trying to resolve the issues created by my vehicle being electric. I could not recommend the service level of this company any higher, their product knowledge is second to none, have all the gear right there in the shop, and will fit you in as soon as … where else do you find that these days!!

— Paul Robinson

The best car audio in Sheffield! Paul spent over an hour with me just talking about everything, door speakers, amps, sub woofers & these guys really know their stuff. Chris (who did the work on my car) spent ages making sure I had no rattles at all. I got a top of the range set up within my budget, head unit, amp, sub & door speakers & cannot speak highly enough for these guys, i learned loads & got a system that properly rocks. If you want car audio, go see these guys, even if just for a quick chat, you’ll see what the hype is about. 10/10

— Joe Walker

I arrived to find two technicians on their lunch break busily helping a lost parcel delivery guy waylaid with items. This bode well for assessing the character of Source Sounds. A replacement head unit and the re wiring of a sub made me self concious that I was not their biggest customer. I could not have been more wrong. They squeezed my job in that very day and phoned me as soon as all was complete. I never had to repeat anything twice. Lee’s perseverance and tenacity was infectious. Several minor issues that I had tolerated previously are now history. I thoroughly recommend this company.
