Huh...my audio shop that does work for many cars that end up seeing the SEMA show and plenty of cars/trucks for companies such as Street Scene says to keep the holes in the doors covered and to only cut out the speaker hole.

How come you cut yours out?

i have built about 100 demo vehicles for companies like pioneer kicker sony just to name a few.And many times i have had to go back unseal a door . i have tried it both ways and do not hear a difference. and if you ever have to get into that door for a window moto you are going to have to cut through the mess.

wow, very nice, how many hours of work is that?
it was 3 days work to to apply the deadener.

Wow that Titans got tons of room. Make sure he gets that rear door harness recall done so you don't smash up the wires to the door.

turbizzy: i take it you were into the old school trunk rattle. not gonna lie im a huge fan of rattling cars (yes im being serious, i was all about that in high school) but now im trying for a clean, tight bass and good sound

tech12: thats what i was thinking after i had wrote that. good point, im just too lazy sometimes, and deadening material can be realllly expensive. what kind of material do you use and how much is it? ive seen bulk packs on ebay go for like 50-60 bucks but thats still really expensive when ur talkin 2-3 packs of it to do a truck.

i just became a hush mat dealer. But trust me you will not do a truck like the titan is doen above for under 300 dollars.Thats if you do it yourself.

Damn. Another add on to the mod wishlist. Hush mat, I haven't heard much about it. How does it compare to dynamat? I have never installed sound deadening on any of my vehicles so I am new to it as far as research into quality / etc is concerned but I have taken a few rides in several vehicles that have dynamat installed.

How do you like the Hush Mat? Have you ever used the RamMAAT stuff? I've got a roll of it waiting on my lazy butt to put it in.

i like the hushmatt. the fat mat used in the titan you do not want to use if it gets really hot where you live. This customer lives in the north where it never gets above 90 degrees.
