Dartslive 100s sound
Hey guys
Just got this soft tip board and was forced to put it in the garage...
I mounted it to the wall but seems a bit loud for my liking. When playing the wife can hear it through the house and people can still hear it outside. I'm afraid my neighbors might be able to hear it too.

Any suggestions to dampen the noise?
Anyone have a soft tip board and buy or make some kind of setup for it to deal with the noise?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure. If the sounds is resonating through the wall, you could put some type of divider between the board and the wall to dampen the sound. Maybe a thin sheet of Dynamat sound deadening or something similar that's used in cars with loud audio systems (lessens vibrations). You could get a square and mount it behind the board. Not sure if that will do the trick though. You can find small squares of it on Amazon.

Other than that, I'm not sure what will work. Soft tip boards are usually loud from the plastic/hollow sections....and Dartslive boards are one of the quietest compared to most consumer/home electronic boards.

They normally only sell them in a pack of 50 or something, but most of the times if you ask nicely they'll open a pack for you and sell you how every many you need individually. When we bought ours the guy said he'd mark it down as a damaged package and said he'd be glad to help a fellow darter out.

Then we wrapped it in fake leather. It works pretty good for my dad, it kills pretty much all of the sound.

I've got the same board... and yes it is LOUD. I was blown away how loud the soft tip game it compared to steel tip.

I threw some carpet on the wall behind it and that helped, but I expect if you find some high density foam it would dampen it a little bit more. Maybe cut up some of those crazy puzzle mats you can usually find at wal-mart?

Seriously have you tried covering the speaker box/sound source with cloth and/or foam?

Ooooooh, my bad. I thought he was talking about the sound of the darts hitting the board. Disregard my post haha.

It's gotta be the sound of the darts hitting the board. The 100s has a volume control switch

re:volume
yes there is a switch so that can be turned off. the sound problem is from the darts hitting the board.

thanks regulatori, kon, and jugger. im gonna try some carpet, cork or foam behind the board first and see how that goes.

ill update with some results as they come.
