English term or phrase: tracking down the decibels
Ich suche eine deutsche Entsprechung für die Überschrift ***Tracking down the decibels***

Der Kontext:
In September 2007 our X site inaugurated a test bench worthy of a specialist laboratory for measuring the acoustic performance of our clips and caps. The facility covers a frequency range of 80 to 10,000 Hz and generates up to 120 dB. It can be used to measure the resultant noise through a perforated metal plate whose holes are plugged with the parts being tested. The aim is to come close to the sound level obtained through an unpierced plate. The facility will be an invaluable tool for the entire network’s R&D teams, since our customers’ specifications more and more often include sound proofing requirements.

Wenn ich das richtige verstehe, wird mit dieser Anlage getestet, ob die produzierten Clips und Kappen schallfest sind. Allerdings ist mir nicht ganz klar, was das in diesem Fall genau bedeutet. Was sind die akustischen Eigenschaften eines Befestigungsclips?

Könnte so etwas wie "Den Decibel auf der Spur" passen?

bis zum letzten Dezibel

etwas freier, aber vielleicht eine Möglichkeit als Überschrift. Und es geht wohl darum alle Materialien so schalldicht/lärmreduzierend zu machen, dass der Lärm von LKWs an sich runtergeht. Also, so viele Dezibels wie möglich "aufzuspüren" und "auszuschalten."


keine Chance für/den Dezibels
wir lassen den Dezibels keine Chance
(wir haben die) Dezibels im Visier
