|I'm looking for a good insulation for sound and heat for a genny enclosure, any Ideas?|
Please send to my e mail too. thanks.
|I've tried using the felt-aluminum foil type sound pad and it did little to curb engine noise. But I'd found Evercoat Q-Pads (part no. 100-116) to work very well. They are, however, a little pricey @ $25.00 for 6 12"x12" self stick squares. I bought mine at West Bay Auto Parts in the Seattle-Puget Sound area, but I couldn't find these at NAPA or Schucks around here. Evercoat's phone is 513-489-7600.|
|One stuff which work good, but kind of hard to work where there is curve|
is the HARDI-BACKER, sold at home depot & other, It's a sheet of fiber &
concrete 1/4" thick. I had use SOUND DOWN before, and had a fire in a engine compartment, the mess generate by the foam, lead, will keep me from using it for a while. But the insulation again the noise is good.

|I picked up some sound/heat insulation from Defender Industries (they have a boat supply catalog). It's foil backed foam with a layer of lead. Expensive, but works fine|

|I bought some 1" foam insulation @CW that they had in the back room. The service manager said I wouldn't pay the price but I did & would again. It is foil then foam then a plastic sheet then foam again. It quieted down the V10 when it downshifted greatly. Don't know the name of the stuff but JC Whitney carries it too, but they are a little bit higher in price. If I recall it was about $54 for asheet that was 24" x 54" or thereabouts. Great stuf & cooled down the doghouse too, altho we weren't looking to do that.|
