I know second skin is the best, but what's something else that is a little cheaper and will still work pretty good. Best bang for my buck type deal. I'm looking to sound deaden my doors, rear walls and trunk but not looking to spend a fortune. Any good deals you guys know of?
Great page Glasswolf, as always, very useful information. After figuring in enough to do my two front doors and both back walls (foam, vinyl wrap, cld tiles, roller, spray and cement) its going to run me 221.72. I'd do my trunk later. From what I read, do I just need one of those CLD tiles per area that I'm trying to stop resonating? For instance place one behind each speaker on the sheet metal and thats all I would need? I purchased 1/2" mdf board today to use for mounting my speakers to. Currently they're mounted to the door, which I know isn't ideal.
i noticede a pretty big difference but i went a bit crazy, 200 cld tiles, spectrum sludge, MLV in doors \ floors \ under back seat, speaker tweekers. only thing i have not deadened yet is my ruff. also deaden your plate that thing makes a hell of a racket. of corse all my stuff was from second skin. did 2 layers on my trunk and some sludge. oh i deadened my fuel filler door as well.
When deadening my front and rear speakers, do I need to deaden the ENTIRE door or could I do a generous area around the speakers. If I could it would cut what I need in foam and vinyl wrap in half. When it comes time to do my trunk I'll be sure to cover everything very well. That will be in the future when I upgrade my sub stage.
Wow guys. I cut wood to fit to my front doors and mounted my 6.5 components to it. What a huge difference in mid bass. Before they just kind of made sound. Now they actually reproduce bass Haha. Definitely need to sound deaden the doors now.
Alright so I took the 6 x 9's I had in my rear walls out and replaced them with 6.5 coaxles. The front and rear speakers are now fastened down to 7.5" x 7.5" squares. Much better sound now. I also changed my tweeters over to the -3dB setting. My music overall sounds a lot cleaner and richer now. Huge improvement. I wish I would have did this years ago. Now, when I sound deaden things it should sound even better.
