    Default wall padding? / what is this?

    This was located above 4 a/c condensers on a wall between two houses. Never seen one of these before. Is this for noise absorbtion?

    That's protection for when the AC guy needs to bang his head against the wall.
    Ok, maybe not. I like your theory better.

    Jerome,

    You got it - Sound Absorption.

    Not sure what rest of wall area was or windows in the area, but that blanket/padding will do a good job of sound absorption to keep the sound waves from bouncing/echoing back/forth between walls.

    Yep... my bet is that the units were sitting outside a bedroom.
