Question Glueing tiles on the back of the cabinet?


To begin with, I'm not very new to this forum, but I nearly post anything, just like surf through these great forums.

Now I got this idea to gleu some sort of (bathroom) tiles outside on the back of my speaker-cabinet, to make it more dead.
Will this give any effect?
Or does anyone have any experience with this?

Doesn't sound like a particularly good idea to me. Using lead sheets is one way of effectively deadening the cabinet, as is the best option IMO - comprehensive bracing.

There are a millions ways to deaden a cabinet. Add mass
and install bracing. Do whatever works for you. Tiles are heavy
and it will add mass
