For this car you would really need to go nuts and do everything. Not worth it IMO, put music louder or get a nice exhaust to listen too, you will not make this car a Lexus. But go for it.

I disagree that you have to go nuts. I've only done the trunk and back seat area with a minimal application of Dynamat so far, and there's been a nice difference. Sure it'll never be a Lexus, but if I can take the edge off the road noise, with a minimal weight gain (<30lb total) that'll be satisfactory.

the only thing i've sound dampened was the trunk lid and rear parcel shelf. and only because i could hear both of them rattling all the time. the rest of the car i haven't touched and don't see a significant need to.

For rattles I totally agree. I have some dynamat in key places that seemed to make noise. But this car is light and tinny.

i posted this before, but it perfectly sums up the wrong and right way to use sound deadening:

https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...=143757&page=2


out of those 2 pictures, they're going to really work the same, but the first picture cost at least twice as much, and took twice as long, and added much more weight, for the same end result.

sry, asking the same question here (https://www.ft86club.com/forums/show...2&postcount=48) since this thread is specifically on sound proofing:

Does this approach work just as well for general sound deadening? or is it just for killing resonance for better audio quality. I'm trying to make my car quieter from road/wind/tire noise

I've done it exclusively to make the car quieter, actually. Any improvement in audio quality is just icing on the cake.

yes.

the idea to sound deadening is to reduce external noise. in audio, the idea is to reduce unwanted noise from intruding on the wanted noise. in your case, you're just skipping the 'audio' portion.
