    f- that, put your stuff in permanently, it won't just help your music sound better it'll cut out alot of road noise. If you don't plan to go at it like myself or noisewater have posted pics of you should at least do the trunk and you can use a liquid deadner if you don't feel like laying down foil. I see your going for a pioneer sponsorship w/ all that gear and deadening the trunk will give you more bass in your face.

    make sure you put some on the back of your license plate and stick some pieces of thick weatherstripping behind it too so it's somewhat elevated off of the lid, which for me pretty much eliminated plate rattle, the only thing that really rattles on my trunk is the spoiler and rear trunk garnish, i may have my old is300 spoiler put on this car because that thing was silent.

    Cornbread is right, but it's not just bass, the clarity or your rear deck 6x9s will benefit too. When I had just "proofed" my rear deck lid, I drove around and listened to various types of music, and I was very impressed with the improvement. Now I have finished my whole trunk, and I am blown away yet again, it just keeps getting better and better.
    Also when you go to sell your car, and they go for a test drive, and it's quiet inside the cabin, it might net you a reasonable resale value.

    +1 for KnuKonceptz

    Great stuff, great price, and i often forget them when recommending parts.

    I forget them because ive used the same 12g wire/rca's from one of their kits in like 4 different cars, and i bought that like 6 years ago.

    btw - $200~ you can have a very well matted car.

    do that + some closed cell foam in strategic locations and youll be golden.

    +1 to Tommy and Silver, that is quite a find, and a great deal, wow, it will be cheaper than I thought to finish up my car...

    Thank you for posting that.

    too bad they don't make pre-cut sheets of that stuff for our cars so someone like me with the patience of a 2yo and the motivation of a DMV worker, just pull off the backing and stick it on. One of you guys with more experience should buy some big a** sheets of this stuff cut out all the holes and shapes needed for the main parts like the doors, trunk...etc. and sell it to me for a small fee.

    unfortunately that wont work.

    That stuff is too flexible and sensitive to heat to precut. itd be a mess by the time it made it to your door. That and generally you need to cut it into strips and patches to get it all to sit right, and you couldnt put a precut large piece on the inner door skins.


    eDead is good stuff, they've always got it at that price on their website, i posted the ebay link because their website says their still on backorder, youll need to email them before ordering it through there just to make sure.

    Im a big fan of Elemental Designs. Great products at a great price, unfortunately theyve been moving slightly away from car audio and doing more H/T stuff, but what they still sell for car audio is good stuff.

    here's a good foam for you

    I have heard great things about their subwoofers too, albeit expensive.

    Expensive compaired to what? I always thought they were pretty cheap.

    Im running a 11.kv2 right now, and it was $90 shipped brand new with 5 year warranty. You cant buy sony crap from best buy for that much.

    I'm sorry I believe I was thinking of another brand, but I can't remember it off the top of my head right now. Maybe Eclipse.

    I was looking at subs and the ones I was looking at from eD were in the 250 dollar range, Eclipse was 300 dollars per.

    That was too much for me, as I was only spending about 150 per sub. I ended up getting my Infinities for 90 dollars a piece off eBay.

    In addition, I like that sub you mentioned, its comparable to my 12.1 Kappa Perfects.

    I am outside working on sound proofing the passenger compartment of the car, and good grief is it hot, I am sweating up a storm. I got the rear seat out, and the deck fascia was a pain in the butt, because I forgot how I got the third brake light out when I put in the speakers.

    The deck lid is really going to be a pain, because of all the little uneven places you have to cover.

    Here are some pictures of the progress, I am heading back out to get to it again.











    Here is the after.







    I just finished up the installation and man I am heat exausted, cut to shreds and tired as all get out. I got so exausted that I started skipping steps, and made a few mistakes. I forgot to put the middle seat belt back in place before bolting the seat down and I forgot to mark the holes for the bolts, and I had to scrape up the deadener to find the holes; I am such a fool. The good news is I had just enough to finish all the way under the seat.

    My new box before getting carpet, I may put a 12" deflex pad behind it depending on the sound difference

    Wow, that is impressive. Let us know how it sounds. It almost looks like a Bose setup, with the long curved port.

    well this sucks, the box is insane and now I need to put in more deadener, I finally see how the sub is supposed to sound and it's ridiculous. I have to adjust the gains and stuff more but I definatley can't turn it up because it pushes too much air for me to really concentrate on driving (maybe because i'm not a bass head). The initial layering of deadner holds ALOT of sound inside the car but the sub box is closer to the lid by about 8 inches so I need to do some more "reinforcing"
