Nice setup... :thumbsup:

I think it would be a good idea and very helpful to others if you started a new thread detailing your specific audio build and experiences...

Just trying to keep this thread on the original topic...

Thanks!

I like many others that have done this love it. Hands down the best thing I did to the car next to dustless brake pads. (I bought the car already modded not much more I can do lolol) first thing my boy had me do when he got his home, was pull that panel off from the exhaust ports. And I adjusted the eq. I do need to flip the baffling material around. I read it as it goes in perfect to the cut out going up instead of laying on the bottom. But it’s sooooo good idk if it will make that much of a difference. I laid dynomat down but didn’t notice any difference at all.. also had to put a couple foam pieces on the panel behind the seat.

also like OP I am finding more rattles in the back now lol. Though the one I have to find is from the exhaust now.. it causes something to rattle vibrate horrible now.

After much of the improvements outlined in the first post have been addressed you tend to find other minor sources of vibrations and rattles...Just recently I found another one I was able to eliminate....

It's like play a game of wack-a-mole!

Quick question…. On step 1…. Does the center part of the 1” wadding go up towards the roof, or down towards the ground?

I am talking about the part of the wadding that is 3” x 22” in the diagram below.

Does it wind up being up or down?

I had a bad vibration with the bass partially on. Much better now for me.

Vibration is gone and I can use the Bass now.

I did put in 2 complete boxes of Dynamat on the rear end floor as well.

Worked well for me
