The Thought Process for Developing Sound Package Treatments for a Vehicle 2011-01-1679

This paper discusses the thought process that one needs to go through for developing an appropriate sound package treatment for a vehicle. In the development process one needs to put proper emphasis on understanding the source, path, and the receiver system. One needs to have an understanding on how to reduce the noise at the source, path, and/or receiver location. One may need to conduct a feasibility study of the benefits of various noise control options. In terms of sound package treatments one needs to understand the fundamentals of acoustical materials how they work and why one material performs differently than another one, as well as the importance of a well documented specification that every supplier has to meet.
