    cms983,

    Anechoic chambers are great for testing drivers. Music listening not so much, preferably, not at all.

    Iím also a huge proponent for absorption wrapped in plastic. Made a huge difference in clarity and also I believed helped a lot of backwave issues and door car energy along will sealing the doors well.

    He's talking about making the inside of the doors anechoic not the cabin. Pretty sure it would be a good thing in the door.

    Anechoic = sucking out everything after initial response.
    In a vehicle the antinodes couple making output "more" . Lowering resonant frequency of doorskin is desirable to get rid of vibrations.

    I checked on in a few years after installing it and it's still in good shape without obvious mold or water problems. I did make sure it was hydrophobic by dunking some in the pool before I installed it though, so maybe that helped me get lucky with not wrapping it in plastic like others have done.

    I just want to say. What a beautiful door to work on.
