Soundproof a Car Compressor – Boat Pump – or Other Equipment

Whether you’re looking to quiet down a compressor that sounds like a chainsaw in a tin bucket, or want to improve the acoustic experience in your car, boat or RV, Soundproof Cow carries a full line of flexible soundproofing materials to help you get your project started on the right foot. 

For vehicle owners looking to improve internal acoustics while keeping outside noise down, we highly suggest lining places where noise is generated – such as hoods, doors, trunks and engine compartments – with paint on or peel-and-stick sound damping products made for tight spaces. At the other end of the equipment-soundproofing spectrum, the materials you use to soundproof a pump, generator, bulldozer, server enclosure or other heavy-duty, oddly-shaped piece of equipment will largely depend on the size of your project, fireproofing and waterproofing requirements and whether you are targeting echo, vibration or sound transfer.

To help you get headed in the right direction we’ve identified 14 common equipment soundproofing projects and put together lists of sound absorption and soundproofing materials we’d recommend for each. Just select the equipment that’s giving you the worst headache and click to get started. 

Let’s get started.

I just wanted to let you know that in the end, sealing the air spaces on this door worked just fine and took care of the problem.

I really appreciate you taking so much time to share your expertise with me, and in particular recommending I try the simpler solution before investing in more expensive noise barriers. That is a big credit to you and your business.
