Default Road noise reducers...

Never thought much of it untill I came across that thread mentioning dynamat or something. I just got to thinking that it would be a cool project to try to make things quieter on the inside. Its not essential to me and the car is already pretty refined while driving but I'm interested in how quiet I can get it.

So anyways I started this thread to ask everyone what all I can do to achieve this. I already have very quiet tires compared to stock on it. Any 2 cents is greatly appreciated.

Will this decrease the amount of whine you'll hear though? Or would the sound coming through the firewall be enhanced since all other directions are dampened?

I can just roll my windows down if it makes the whine too quiet. Thats the beauty of a FWI. But yeah some kind of dampening material will fit right in because I need to pull the interior out to check out the water damage.

Geez, well if you have to tear it down anyway, you may as well go for it!

Keep in mind that asphalt, which is what Dynomat and most other sound-deadeners use, is pretty heavy. If you're big into getting more mods, it'll knock back your ETs a little.
If you just want road noise reduced, you should concentrate on areas around body-mounts.

I think I'm going to get the rattle pad and apply luxury liner on top of it. http://www.secondskinaudio.com/cgi-b....cgi?pg=4&p=ps

The rattle pad weighs almost nothing all together and the luxury liner is about 1 pound per square foot so I figure it wouldn't add more than 45 pounds to my car all together.

I'll probably be doing this on thanksgiving break since I'll have more than one day to do it then. It can be done in an all day session but I wan't to take my time and do it right.

Thanks for all the advice.
