Luxury Liner Pro Water proof?


Recommended Posts

Is LLP waterproof? I was trying to figure out a way to create and add an “umbrella” to the back portion of my custom speaker adapters, the section thats inside the door cavity gets water dripped on it if it rains or washing the car. Im thinking waterproof foam would be the easiest and most pliable option, just use some adhesive and form it around the back portion of the adapter. I already have a ton of LLP so ill try that if its water proof. 

Just a couple pics of the adapter for my front doors. The angle i made the speaker aim kind of helps keep water from dripping on the actual speaker, but i just want to be sure it wont get wet. My doors leak A LOT, which is another issue ill take care of later.

If it is a closed cell foam, then yes it is water proof.

Be careful though as you can alter the sound of your speaker by adding foam directly behind a speaker, think of speaker baffles, great idea but they really do hinder the performance of the speaker.

Car audio speakers are meant to get wet, every car leaks water in the doors, it is just a fact of life, some more than others.

They are meant to get wet? Wont water damage a speaker? My stock 6x9 adapters had an “umbrella” portion, which is what gave me the idea that maybe i should include something like that on the ones i made. It wouldnt be like those foam cups or fastring plugs. I would form it more like a awning for the back of the adapter thats in the inner door cavity.

All of our products are water resistant...we do not manufacture or sell any product that will absorb water. Even our open cell melamine foam has been treated with a hydrophobic process to repel water. Our products are also anti-fungal and anti-mold treated.  #SecondSkiForTheWin
