Question stock speaker pods.

got 10 sqft of fatmat xxx rattle trap.

did the first layer on the speaker pods and i have plenty left to do a second. question is, should i do a second layer? is there any way i can use the leftover, probably a little over 5 sqft, for the sound bar? ...probably not, huh?




the above is most likely irrelevant.

I used a single layer of HushMatt on mine. One is all it took. I did however do a single coat on the inside as well as out. While you have them out go ahead and pack them with Polyfill; it will greatly improve the sound as well.

That stuff looks familiar. I used it everywhere on my truck.




I still have a big roll left so thanks for the idea!

I cut it into small squares and worked it down by hand after heating it a little with a heat gun. Custom car audio is what I do for a living. I just used materials and tools I had here in the shop.

I also did the inside behind the speaker in the sound bar; as well as the mounting surface of the speakers in the sound bar and packed it full of poly-fill as well. The only vibration I have from the bar now is the loose dome light making a buzz every now and then. I have yet to fully stop that problem. I am no longer running the factory speakers. The same time I did the sound deadening; I installed a set of Kicker DS650s(aftermarket version of the Mopar Kickers). It sounds great, even on just my Pioneer Nav unit and no amp. Mike, I see the Alpine amp in the background of your pics, great choice you will love that thing!

I stuffed it a good amount. To be honest I didn't measure the volume, just eye-balled it. I'd say I filled it maybe 40-50% full. It was a lot of work I am not gonna lie man, lol.

Poly fill stuffing ratio is about 1lb per cubic foot which in reality seems like quite a lot when you are doing it but sounds great!


Ps just realised that was my first post HAHA, i must have been lurking!!
