The mixture of sand with epoxy or latex glue is very good. The latter is less expensive, of course.

Composites have always been very good at reducing vibrations. I've never tried latex glue - would it not take a very long time to dry when used in such quantities?

The loudspeaker verb is "damp". The garden hose verb is “dampen”. “Damp” is also a garden hose adjective.

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=damp which says in part,


tr.v. damped, damp·ing, damps

4. Music. To slow or stop the vibrations of (the strings of a keyboard instrument) with a damper.

5. Physics. To decrease the amplitude of (an oscillating system).
