The “acoustic double fishnet” is a structure with holes running from its front to back faces, yet at a characteristic frequency it transmits very little sound. The transmittance of this structure, which is comprised of a pair of closely spaced, periodically perforated plates, is determined experimentally and analytically. The surprising acoustic properties are due to hybridization between a two-dimensional resonance within the gap between the plates, and pipe modes within the holes. At the center of the stop band the input impedance is imaginary, interpreted as a negative product of effective bulk modulus and density.
