We fabricated a double negative acoustic metamaterial which consisted of Helmholtz resonators and membranes. Experimental data on the transmission and dispersion relation are presented. The system exhibited three frequencies where the acoustic state makes sharp transitions from density negative (ρ-NG) to double negative (DNG), modulus negative (B-NG), and double positive (DPS) in sequence with the frequency. We observed a wide range of negative refractive indexes from -0.06 to -3.7 relative to air, which will allow for new acoustic transformation techniques.
