This paper presents comparisons between various panel and cavity resonance control methods to reduce the transmitted sound in a double-panel structure. The double-panel, which consists of two panels with air in the gap, has the advantages of low weight and effective transmission-loss at high frequency. Therefore, it is widely applied in many areas such as aerospace. Nevertheless, the resonance of the cavity and the poor transmission-loss at low frequency limit its noise control performance. Applying active control forces on the panels or utilizing loudspeakers in the cavity to reduce the noise problem have been discussed in many papers. In this paper, an acoustic-structure coupled model is used to investigate and to compare the transmitted sound reduction of various cavity and panel resonance control methods. The control performance comparison is based on the same stability control margins. Moreover, an adaptive control method is used in the system to further improve the control performance. Piezoelectric actuators on the radiating panel in the adaptive feedforward control combines with the loudspeakers with pressure source in the feedback control is found to be the most effective combination.
