I'm currently drivin a crown vic police cruiser...after the police retire these cars, they strip em, carpet n' all. the floor in the car and trunk is just bare i dont know how else to describe it.
i've been told that the carpet in most cars acts as a natural sound dampener...is that true? should i be hesitant to put bass in a car like this? would there be all kindsa rattling and poor sound quality?
y not spread a layer of peanut butter over the whole interior too in case i get hungry jordan how bout that?
This why i wanna sell this puppy and get an suv with carpet like normal cars...don't really wanna mess with all the dynamat and sh!t especially when the system ima put in isn't even gunnna be all that powerful where i should have to worry about rattling.
lol. i c. man that sucks that theres no carpet in the whole car. Idk how much of a rattle there would really be, but i kno that after i added my dynamat it sounded alot better/clearer. Is there no where you can get the replacement carpet pieces? Maybe u should jus hold off till u find an SUV.
i dont have any carpet in my trunk either because i took it out to put edead all over and couldnt get it back in and it sounds alot better with the edead and no carpet but it doesnt look better so now i have to buy new carpet somewhere
yeah those police cars come fast. I always wanted to get the SUV Police cruiser bc I heard they come with a supercharger and other mods. www.auto-interior.com has cheap prices for carpet, you can either get the carpet with mass backing which is like sound deadener or without it.
hehe i bet the suvs are really hard to find. I got a great deal on mine becuz i bought it from a friend who sold it cheap cuz he just didn't wanna put in the work/$$$ it needed.
Thx for that link Berny...the crappy interior is one of the big reasons i wanna sell it...now you got me thinking maybe i just need to put a lil money on the inside now stead of under the hood.
That mass backing would be awesome cuz it would take care of the carpet and sound deadening in ONE JOB!!! question though...those carpet packages don't include carpeting for the trunk right? i would assume not.
Usually the price does, for the whole carpet in my car with mass backing it cost about 300 bucks. Thats including seating areas and cargo area which is the trunk in a suv kinda thing. So just read carefully and you'll see. Why not just buy some edead and do the floor ahead of time =). 50cuft or so shouldn't be too much.
but it can only do so much! The mass backing sticks to the carpet, not the car, so theres still potential for the metal to vibrate. What the mass backing does is blocks the vibrations from coming through so strong. So edead is still a good idea to control the rattle/vibrations.
well i'm only gonna be runnin a system with like 8 or 9 hundred watts RMS...like 2 12" assassins. so in your knowledgeable opinion mr. berny sir , do you think the edead would be necessary? or just a bonus?
