Elastomers can also effectively isolate low frequency vibrations by being formed in certain shapes. Shape factor is the term of art used to quantify the isolation performance of a given elastomer shape. The implication is that the lower the shape factor, the lower the potential resonance frequency. A low resonance frequency typically results in a wide bandwidth of vibration isolation. This is due to the isolation of vibration frequencies above the resonance...

Even though the surface velocity of the panels of a loudspeaker is small, the panels radiate with an efficiency many times greater than that of the drivers. This is due to the large radiating area of the panels relative to the radiating area of the drivers. Sound radiating from the enclosure panels can impart audible distortion and should be mitigated. Damping the enclosure panels is one effective way to...
