    sound deadening?

    Who's installed sound deadening in doors behind speakers?
    Exactly what difference did it make to the quality of the sound of the speakers?

    ive covered the doors is ivenhoe once then used some dynamat around and behind the speakers i used one and a hyalf roles of ivenhoe and one of the 300mmx300mm dynamat pads per door

    the differance is huge i did it before i had aftermarket speakers in and it made the vaux ones some better than most of my mates after market ones

    deffo invest in some you wont regret in mate

    As above

    It improves mid bass response when done properly, so no air can leak past the speakers

    Dynamat, Ivanhoe, and Edead are all good stuff

    I've got 15 SQ feet of eDead in each door (3 Layers) and you can tell the difference immediately. Even closing the doors sounds different.

    More like a clunk as opposed to a twang now I bet

    well worth doing, i used a bulk pack of damplifier pro on all 4 doors, a piece of dynaxorb behind each speaker, mdf baffles, ran better speaker wire through, huge difference!

    It shut up all the people who said i'd be wasting my money sound deadening!

    I'm about to have a go at sound deadening tomorrow. Should I leave the pink plastic film on, or remove it and attach the sound deadening directly to the door?

    Take that stuff off, here's mine half way through doing it:



    I made a weather seal (that plastic film) with the sound deadening in the end. As i said above - i used 3 layers of this in the end and it's amazing.

    Also go to B&Q and get a 'Seam Roller' for wallpapering to smooth out any bubbles as if it's not touching the door it's not working.

    Wow cool, thanks!

    How did you measure up where to put it? I take it there are places you cant put it, otherwise it would foul the lineup of the card?
