    An all stock system and your trying to gain DB's by adding a deck and deadener?

    Upgrading the HU should up your SQ, and deadening will help with rattles and mid bass from your doors. It would be impossible to calculate how many dB's you will gain as there are a limitless amount of factors, but you might go up on the meter if that's what you are concerned with

    He never said he was stock. Just stock hu. It could help. It'll definitely help rattle though. What exactly are you trying to do?

    Dont you think it would be good to state that in a question asking how to gain DB's? What subs?

    It will increase your spl and sq yes...but its impossible to tell you how much if any SPL gain it will give you. SQ I can 100% assure you it will help a ton...SPL on the other hand...probably not that much, but if spl is your goal than deadening and upgrading equipment is necessary...But I guess if you want to go by my experiences with sound deadner then I gained over 2 almost 3 db when I deadened my roof and doors (3 layers on each)

    It isnt a 100% guarantee it will gain you as much as I gained in my vehicle, but like I said if you want SPL numbers its a necessary step.

    Just do it.
