Minimum Deadening for Maximum Results?

Recommended Posts

Hey all I'm looking to add some sound deadener to my vehicle but not looking to do the entire vehicle. Just trying to get the spots on the car that will help out the most. Around the speakers? A few Strips on the outer door panel? On the hatch? Just looking to get a small kit maybe  10-20sq ft. I'm just doing a budget build  and not trying to spend too much. I figure with this product some is better than none.

What vehicle are we talking about here ???

On my 07 Avalanche, all I've done is my 2 front doors which was a MAJOR improvement.

A nice value for your goals:

The Ampere is on sale right now.

 

But keep in mind that is just the CLD tile.  You can add CCF and MLV, or try the new Silencer 3-in-1 that is CCF, Foil, and Butyl in one piece.

Doors first, then the biggest flat points on the car.  Can do wonders with modeling an 5% coverage, but without fancy math and a ton of time (ie the OE's have a hard time doing it) 25% coverage is a good approximation with only a little more weight.

Agreed. :)

Doors: 60% coverage of CLD on the outer skin and 25% coverage of CLD on the inner skin spread out in a checkerboard fashion will provide great results.

60% is MONSTROUS overkill
