About the Hushmat Wave Breaker Kit

Do you have a noise problem?

You've finally got your vehicle's sound system dialed in so you're getting the sound you want…when the car is stationary. But when you're moving, road noise can force you to turn up the stereo to ear-blasting levels to compete. And when you turn your speakers up, the standing waves (or back waves) that build up behind the cones can introduce distortion. What can you do to combat this problem?

Hushmat has the solution

Wave Breaker pads are made from a self-adhesive sound-deadening material that helps to break up back waves that can cloud your sound. This kit includes two pre-cut 8" x 8" pads which attach behind the magnet of your speakers or subs. Warranty: 60 days.

Product Research

Features

HushMat Wave Breaker: Wave breaker is pressure-sensitive, semi-closed large cellular, synthetic rubber foam, which has excellent adhesion properties. The Wave Breaker structure is designed to efficiently disrupt sound waves into a random surface thus allowing the full sound quality of the speaker to perform without distortion. Wave Breaker is also a very light weight substrate and will bond directly to the HushMat Ultra on door speaker applications or the back of sub woofer enclosures.

  • Wave Breaker effectively disrupts back wave from speakers in a wide frequency spectrum from 10 to 15000 Hz.
  • Reduces road noise & vibration; low frequency noise from 0 to 1,000 Hz.
  • Reduces thermal transfer by over 40%.
  • Insulates from -30° up to 550° degrees Fahrenheit.

How Wave Breaker Works: When the speaker cone moves in and out waves are created in two directions. The wave that moves out the front is called music. The wave that moves out the back of the speaker is called distortion. This back wave reflects off the solid surface behind the speaker and bounces back to the front essentially throwing the speaker out of phase. When HushMat is placed behind the speaker these back waves are absorbed and broken up in the wave breaker molecular structure. This prevents the bounce back and therefore prevents the distortion. Therefore you get all the music out of that speaker

Temperature & Environment Resistant: HushMat Wave Breaker is temperature & environment resistant and will maintain adhesion through all automotive environments from -30° to 300° F). Humidity, UV and other conditions consistent with automotive use will not disrupt Wave Breaker performance.

Simple To Install: The HushMat Wave Breaker cuts with scissors and features a self-adhesive backing for peel-and-stick installation. The superior adhesive properties of Wave Breaker allow it to be used in horizontal, vertical or inverted applications. It has good conformability and can be applied on complex shapes. It bonds to fiberglass, plastic, and all metal surfaces. Use one Wave Breaker per coaxial speaker, or two Wave Breakers per sub woofer.

I choose this for two reasons: 1) Sound-deadening behind the front door speakers, & 2) Thats less Dynamat Light that I would have to use in the door. I plan on to just stick these behind the speakers (on the outside sheet-metal of my door, and the Dyna-mat goes around it and anywhere else I have room for it. Including the rear deck/baffle-board.

Rusty, from Crutchfield, suggested these for enhancing the sound quality from the speakers I was also purchasing. Reviews, both on Crutchfield and elsewhere, indicated that this is a good purchase for reducing sound waves from the rear of the speakers. The price is high in my opinion. I waited until I saw an available open box price for $5 less. Rusty's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=42 [ VTengineer  Aug 17, 2016 ]

Q
Do you put this on the actual sun mag or on the sub box behind sub mag?

A
On the sub box behind the sub. Not on the sub.
[ GENE  Mar 11, 2016 ]

The Hushmat wavebreaker goes on the rear wall directly behind the magnet of the speaker. I used these on a pair of rear 6 3/4 coaxials in my truck. I placed the wave breaker on the inside of the door skins behind the speaker. Hope this helps.
[ STEVEN  Mar 08, 2016 ]
A
From my understanding it goes behind speakers of all kinds to stop Soundwaves from bouncing off the surface behind the speaker and crazing back into the speaker, which will cause distortion. I can't answer exactly but I hope it helps a little.
