RE: Vibration Frequencies of Audio Gear?

Please be realistic. There are far too many variables involved to isolate a few freq ranges. If you want to "tune" for one, then look up tone woods, etc., but if you're working in a larger general sense, then you might be missing the key to constrained layer damping. That works on each layer dealing with different freqs and the interface between each layer converting that vibration to friction and thereby dissipating it. At least that's my understanding. You can DIY the concept using many different combinations of materials and I frankly don't believe that you can optimize for your preferences in your system without the personal experimentation. I did this with lots of damping schemes mixed over time. For shelves, I found commonly available materials that I would work with at home and were cheap, which materials approximated the commercial product. And it worked well. To experiment I just didn't "fix" them in place; rather leaving them removable and replaceable until I found the combo that seemed to work best for my situation. YMMV
