Question exhuast = eternal enemy for sound system ?

anybody with this problem ? or solved it even ?

i've did some search, came up with 2 possible solutions, but i have no basis for if neither will work

1. resonators, well i have one, postioned somewhere under the rear seats, that leaves a big hollow 2.5" tube from cat to resonator.
Would it be effective if I put another one there ?

2. dynamat(or alike), i thought of the possibility of the exhuast sound resonates in our hollow doors and/or not well insulated floor.
Would it help if I dynamat the door/floor ?


which is more likely ? wish to have a fix soon cuz basslink and new speakers are on their way

if you had power like I did, you won't even hear firetrucks, (which is a bad thing)

louder system = nme to society...

P.S. I rarely play my music with my windows down, usually all up just so I don't bug anyone and I rarely have it on loud either...

or if your are techy enough, make some active noise cancelling device.

IIRC, some one did market one of these a few years ago. kinda cool. microphone next to the exhaust. routes to black box with a speaker that sits in the cabin.

presto. no exhaust noise in the cabin...

Yeah noise canceling would not work well for open air systems.

When I had Ford Probe with loud exhaust (and intake), the constant noise did bother me a lot. It interfered with the subwoofer, and got on my nerves. I suggest making your exhaust as quiet as possible, and sound proofing floor, trunk and doors.

Supposedly if you play your music loud >100dB, you can't hear anything else, but that is damaging to the ears.

Talking Turn it up!

I have a 3 inch exhaust off of the turbo with 1 muffler at the back (no Cat or anything - its great living on a long skinny island).

Can't hear the sub worth a *****.

I just turn it up louder until I can. haha

I can hear my radio while my car is idling....as long as I'm not in a parking garage. Stock radio + 2.5" straight pipes = don't even bother.
