    Ive been hearing that it makes your components sound much better and louder because the back wave of the speaker is not hitting the metal after you deaden. Is that true?

    Yes it really does, extreme difference, you can just do your front doors or all if you like.

    It depends on HOW you deaden. It isn't cheap, but If you don't do it PROPERLY you will see little difference and you will have wasted your money. Going all out and deadening them very well does wonders and offers you substantial return for what you paid.

    This is something I am pretty curious about as well. Much of the road noise enters in through the doors, but one thing I would like to read more on would be deadening for speaker performance versus deadening for canceling out unwanted noise.

    Deadening/sealing up your doors that have speakers in them will increase the speakers performance by giving it a more solid and less resonant surface/enclosure (for lack of a better word.)

    I am planning on starting by deadening/sealing up my front doors to get the best from the speakers however much of my driving is with windows down and I sort of enjoy hearing/feeling the road and being intune with my truck more so than with my music so I am holding off on trying to eliminate road noise.

    I guess it ultimately depends on your priorities on the installation. Many have even gone as far as to place deadener on the underside of their hood as well as liquid deadener on their wheel wells in conjunction with numerous layers of deadener and noise canceling material over their floors and ceilings and other solid surfaces in the car.

    Re: Is it worth it to sound deaden doors?

    Most perceived road noise enters the cabin through the doors. Most doors, while having speaker mounting systems included on them, have no accomodations for creating a true sealed baffle, as any non-sealed back speaker requires for any decent level of performance. Most doors, while having speakers mounted to them, have very flimsy structural integrity, and many parts prone to rattling when vibrated.

    Now I ask YOU, do you think its worth it to sound deaden your doors?



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Deadener will accomplish part of this but much of what you want to do is give the back waves an uneven reflective surface. Many have used egg crate as a low cost yet effective way to do this.

    Or you could look to products such as this to help cancel out back waves. http://www.secondskinaudio.com/sound...weaker-kit.php

    or do some searching on Deflex Pads

    x2 I always tell people they need to go all out with it or they wont notice a difference. If there is one weak spot in the door (or install) then it will affect the sound quality.

    But do the fronts, get some baffles too, and do the inside and outside of the door panel (not the ACTUAL outside, there are two layers to a door), multiple layers of deadening, close up any holes you can, and you can use the insulite foam too..
