there was also a bunch of TL data for just the fiberglass/mineral fiber as well.  kind of interesting.

i wonder if TL of glass/wool would relate to absorption via impedance tube?

5000 11 19 19 28 38

A = 3.5" 0.7 pcf glass fiber
B = 6" 0.7 pcfglass fiber
C = 3" 2.8 pcf thermafiber
D = 6" 2.8 pcf thermafiber
E = 5.5" 4.3 pcf thermafiber


And that's what i've got

thanks Brian.

check out the following OT excerpt, kinda though you'd like it.
it's from "the international wildlife encyclopedia" , 1969  (20 volumes !) .
same source that called the turkey ugly  :D .

Looks more like StudioTits Parade to me. That driver must be Eric in his prime, and I bet he is still using that car, when is not driving his bicycle  :mrgreen:

bump.


this could be helpful and related to the recent triple leaf tests.   it shows that insulation itself has some TL at higher freq's where the air space + 703 made the biggest difference in the triple leaf tests.

if you find this thread w/o finding the oher thread first, just discard these comments.   :)  this is the thread that this post is aimed at:
