Easy & Cheap Speaker Solution

Spent about 70 bucks on some Dynamat and polyester filling. Stuffed my subs with polyester ...Dynamat and polyester stuffed my soundbar and front speaker pods. Major difference in sound level and quality.

An easy and cheap solution ...

i had no trouble at all with the speaker pods.

i removed all the screws, then removed the screws/bolt holding the speaker pods in. pulled the lower panel out and rolled the pod out of the dash with no trouble.

if i'd have tried that with the pod still in there... it would have been a massive PITA, though.

1 lb of polyfill in each of my 2 subwoofer compartments and I split a 20 ounce bag of polyfill between the soundbar and pods.

How much dynamat did it take? Was it a PITA getting it to fit?

Same here, the driver side pod was almost as easy as the passenger side pod. The key is removing enough of the dash screws so the lower dash panel can be pulled outward just enough to let the pod roll out. Very easy.

I used the Dynamat Door Kit on my front pods. The door kit comes with 4sheets (10 sq. Ft.) of material. I used 2 sheets per pod with not clearance issues whatsoever.

^^^^ This. And to give credit where credit is due, it was reading a few posts from MaloCS that made me decide to try this.

Thanks ...
