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

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?

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.

I used audiowrap and audio technix. I put 3 layers of it on my roof...3 layers on my doors and 3 layers on my hatch...and yes it gained me that much.

BUT.

That doesn't necessarily mean you will gain as much as I did...but you will gain.

Adding deadener makes some people gain and some people loose, but if will for sure make your system sound a hell of a lot better.

If anything id do it just for the Quality aspect getting rid of those Tiny vibrations everywhere will result in better sound quality
And there is about 90% of the time a gain
And if your gonna go with damp id honestly just hitp coleman ^the guy above me who owns audiotechnix...
I may have had a falling out with the guy but his product speaks for itself and his customer service is awesome
damp is 40mil his 60mil is TESTED to do the exact same thing but its thicker AND CHEAPER

No one knows unless you TEST it. Thats the whole point of car audio, trying **** out and seeing if it works or not. It will Sound better, but you wont know 100% what affect it will have until you try it........

The amount of SPL you gain will be inaudible. What will be audible is a drop in the noise floor which will be similar to the difference between trying to chat up a girl at a noisy bar or doing the same at a nice classy restaurant.

It'll seem louder yet an SPL mic will see little, if any, difference.
