Thanks for posting that. I'm going to work on my door panels now that I can hear every little thing in the car. Is there a bb or something rolling around in that box?

In both of my front doors I have what sounds exactly like what a screw rolling around in the bottom of the doors would sound like. Just when I stop and go. Unfortunately its not. Searched hi and low and cant figure it out. Considering the sound is identical on both sides I would assume that this is something built into the car....Anyone else experience this?

Good job. I enjoy the outside noise though. It's one of the perks to driving. Although my exhaust covers up most of the sound.

I think with subaru, they knew people would buy it to drive it and if people wanted a calm quiet cabin they would purchase a Lexus or Acura.

Sometimes people like the idea of owning a Subaru more than actually driving one.

Nice work! I am in the process of finishing my entire trunk myself just in an 07 sedan. what I was curious about was, does this cover up the exhaust feedback? as well as since it's a hatch does it resonate better in the trunk - (no clue on what system you have)..

All in all nice work the doors were fun in my opinion lol biggest difference there.

I like what you did. I am in the process of my sound install also. I agree about making it feel like a more expensive car for lack of better terms. Ive done this to much cheaper cars than my subaru.

I like what you've done with the dynamat. I unfortunately don't have the time to tear apart my whole car. What would you reccomend if I was only to do a few spots here or there. The most effective spots or the spots easiest to do.

I'm sold! Been driving around for nearly a week with no stereo. I will probably do this to every vehicle I ever own. It has made an incredible change to the interior atmosphere, and over all feel-of-car...

One thing to consider is, will you be ready to hear all the other noisey things that you probably dont even realize are there now? I have a mild case of OCD and these things do bother me. I'm making a list of all the other crap thats making noise and will tackle those fixes as time permits.

If you're on a budget or cannot have the down time I would:

Cover all smooth/flat surfaces. Mainly body skin.... Rear hatch fender wells. and cover as many open holes in the framework as you can. Just covering this openings alone makes a big difference.

Those that are looking for a more bang for the buck value than dynomat, use RAAMat. It is the fraction of the price of dynomat, but has equal the sound deadening capability.

I'm no pro, but after using two different types, I will say that some are easier to work with than others. The Dynamat stretched easier and was all around easier to work with than the Fosgate Dead Skin......

I am mainly wondering how effective it is too do door alone. After reading this thread I we t down to car toys yesterday. They quoted me 900 after tax to dynamat all 4 doors plus throw in some jl components up front and matching jl coax in the rear. They won't print quotes but I believe he said the dynamat was 200 material and 200 labor

Rear view mirror rattles....This is horrible, I have the homelink and I've tried following a post on a g35 forum for making the rattle go away but it was unsuccessful. Have any luck with this? I have an AI enclosure w/ sub and its the only thing that rattles..

Ill ask a guy over on CACO if his subaru's mirror rattles and if there's a cure for it. Other than that I've thought about taking it apart and siliconing it and simply adding weight to it to try and help. But that's at the end of my list.

On another note I did my trunk today during my break between classes. Nothing fancy. Did mine in a hurry.

I just purchased 50 sq. ft. of rattle trap (similar to dynamat) and 40 sq. ft. of Mass Loaded Vinyl to do this to my WRX. Nice to see am not the only one who would like the car to feel/sound more solid.
