    Acoustic Chamber Testing

    We are driving the industry forward with our capability to deliver lightweight acoustic solutions. Our moldable composite products are fine-tuned in our Autovation Acoustic Chamber—where sound absorption tests replicate external test lab results perfectly.

    To guarantee absolute accuracy, we’ve configured our chamber to meet the diffuseness criteria of SAE J2883. The related performance is documented as RC1 and established as the initial configuration for all J2883 and J1400 testing.
