If I wanted to deaden my doors and they look like this would I remove that plastic and do the inside of the doors as well or just deaden of the the top of the plastic??

is there metal behind the plastic, tho? or is it just a big hole?

in my car, there's no metal there. The door's just open inside, nothing to dampen

I had 50 for my two doors and I did 2 layers and didn't only used like 3/4 of it, I would get 40 just to be safe.

You can shot an email to second skin, let them know the make/model and what you want to deaden and they will tell you how much you need.

ya, if there's no metal behind the plastic, you're gonna have to do some welding, get creative with some plywood or plexiglass, or do a sealed doorpod or kickpanel.

Ok got a serious problem now, I do have metal behind the foam but I have no idea how I am going to make these crystals work.

Here is the hole in my door http://www.ssstangs.com/gallery/albums/userpics/10047/normal_HPIM0338.jpg (http://www.ssstangs.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-6842)

Here is the factory 6x9 and housing

Here is showing the Crystal will fit depth wise
http://www.ssstangs.com/gallery/albums/userpics/10047/normal_HPIM0341.jpg (http://www.ssstangs.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-6839)

Now what can I make to allow the speaker to be mounted in that hole. Without cutting into the factory door panel besides installing the tweeter.

Shouldn't be hard. just make an mdf baffle that will cover the entire hole, seal the baffle to the metal with modeling clay, and then install the speaker to the baffle. It'll hold it out 3/4" and cover the hole.

Yeah just make sure you have clearance between the magnet and window. Also make sure you can get the door panel back on without rubbing against the speaker.

Yeah I checked that today, rolled down the window and it greatly cuts down the depth, gonna see If I can make some sort of fiberglass enclosure I guess, I have plenty of depth for the door panel, so I shouldnt have to cut into it, just gonna be fun because I have never glassed before. Good thing is it doesnt matter how it will look considering it will be under the door panel.
