    With the system i have i seriousl should get some of this stuff. a 1200 watt Boss Amp, 2 12 inch Phoenix Gold subs in a ported box with a 3 farad capacitor. yeah i vibrate garage doors just driving down my street. i have to turn my music down before going onto my street or i get serious complaints. if my windows are down and one side of my back seat down, then you can hear my car from a block away if not more, no joke, so just imagine what the rattles sound like. ive had friends make me turn it down cause thier hearts start to feel funny cause the bass hits so hard. i just dont wanna spend the money to sound deaden my car cause i dont do comps.

    Silver - its not just for comps.

    Deadener will make the overall sound louder and cleaner. Less energy spent rattling panels = more energy spent making the sounds you want. Over all, the system will sound much better.

    car audio is like 9/10ths install, 1/10th components. A great install will do amazing things for sub-par equipment.

    Tommy is dead on, I sound proofed my deck lid and front doors when I just had the factory components, and a cheap Sony HU, and it improved the clarity and bass two fold. and then I got a Clarion HU and Infinity components for the inside and I can take the volume up to my tolerance with an astounding clarity and right now even without subwoofers, it sounds deep and clear. I can't wait until I get my subs in.

    I have seen many people with Rockford Fosgate Subs and JL Audio Amps, or any combination of very pricey components, and say they didn't think it sounded good, just because the enclosure was the wrong size or it was vented or not vented as per the subs specs, or they would have 4GA wire when the amp needed 1/0GA wire.

    Understood, I have sacrificed bodywork, and LED interior lights, and engine mods to put money into my trunk.

    How is stereo one of your things but you dont properly install your equipment?

    Thats like saying " I like to cook, but i dont cook food"

    Laughing out loud with Tommy.

    To his credit, sound isolation is all too often left to the wayside as money is spent buying 3 farad capacitors and Monsterwire. Both of which, you wouldn't need in a proper installation.

    silver I don't even know how loud my car gets because when it starts to rattle on the outside I've never wanted to open the door and get in, i've only made it rattle by using the remote outside of the car. because of the car design it's not possible to be 100% silent I believe but it is feasible to have it loud enough on the inside w/ the volume at a lower setting, which is how my car is. I invested in all this because I didn't want people to hear me from a block away which is why I chose a SQ sub but at 15% volume I can't hear the engine or anything so I never really go past that point while driving.

    maybe I'll try one day to have music playing while I walk down the street w/ someone watching my car and find out how far it can be heard clearly.

    I am actually debating whether to pull the seats and do the floor because it'd only take 2 days to do it and reinstall everything but i'm low on sound funds but I still want more silence, I want ears to pop when the doors are shut, vacuum style.

    Yes Sir, I hope to achieve a Mercedes like silence within the cabin of my car. The sheets of proofing material that size are expensive though. Also how would one do their firewall? From the inside or outside?

    Thank you for that, thats exactly where the sound deadening money went.

    I have also put money elsewhere like my suspension and what not. for christ sake im the only one stateside we know of to have spent the 700 bucks for the maintec gt header.

    Yea, i guess if youre trying to make your car loud, sound deadener really isnt a priority.

    I remember your fart can of doom from a while back...


    monster wire...lol, great stuff. got lots of stories about the rip off that is monster wire.

    monster wire isn't a rip off if you get it at the right price! I got a spool of 12ga and 8ga for $5 a piece (clearance) at walmart months ago, before they switched to all Scosche wires.

    It's just as good as any wire, I'm speaking specifically about Best Buy, in my experience they overprice that stuff. But yeah, if you can get it at a reasonable price it's just as good as any wire.

    I was talking about the fact that people install their systems wrong and then run and buy Monster wire because it is advertised as a way to solve inferior installation problems such as ground loops, and the like.

    well if you want the best wire IMO go with KnuKonceptz and you get what you pay for, the stuff is PACKED full of copper and has the flexibility of a pull-n-peel twizzler. I only have like 1 ft of that stuff in my car because it came with a used distro block i bought off someone but its the TRUTH!

    @CornbreadXD: That's what I use.

    @Kingjombeejoe: I haven't used Shark Racing, but I haven't heard good things. I also don't like padding, but it might work somewhat. It is not a mass load material, and therefore will not stop vibrations, only dampen sound.

    no kingjambalaya, that is the stuff that is behind your door and above your headliner, that stuff is a joke if your really gonna sound deaden your car stick with closed cell foams and foil/liquid deadeners and work in layers. that stuff will help a little with rattles to seperate plastics but foams would do the same for ALOT less

    Do you know of something I can use to make this myself? I just don't want to adhere anything to the car permanently unless I have to I'm not putting in a crazy system but I'm sure Ill benefit from sound deadening. I'm just posted up my system build now let me know what you think here's the link. http://www.elantraxd.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35865
