In this paper, the low-frequency and tuning characteristic of band gap in a two-dimensional phononic crystal structure, consisting of a square array of aluminum cylindrical stubs deposited on both sides of a thin rubber plate with slit structure, are investigated. Using the finite element method, the dispersion relationships and power transmission spectra of this structure are calculated. In contrast to a typical phononic crystal without slit structure, the proposed slit structure shows band gaps at lower frequencies. The vibration modes of the band gap edges are analyzed to clarify the mechanism of the lowest band gaps. Additionally, the influence of the slit parameters and stub parameters on the band gaps in slit structure are investigated. The geometrical parameters of the slits and stubs were found to influence the band gaps; this is critical to understand for practical applications. These results will help in fabricating phononic crystal structures whose band frequency can be modulated at lower frequencies.
