Saab Stereo – Sound deaden door

14 Feb
Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve updated here. The boot is now sound proofed, but I needed to make sure the doors were done properly, so I’ve gone back and redone them. I also decided that for a Sleeper style, I really needed to get the speakers behind the stock grills.So here’s the project-

1. Dynamat the outer shell of the door
2. Install spacer and speaker
3. Dynamat the inside of the door
4. Replace door trim with grill

And here’s the pictures…

1. Dynamat the outer shell.

Just so that you know, I cut up decent sized strips and fed them in through the services holes to give the outer shell of the door 100% coverage with the Dynamat. Because of the size of the door, we’re looking at about 2 and a half sheets… so about $75 worth of Dynamat. Seems a lot, but the soound benefits are amazing.

Also, because I have done so much on the outer skin, I won’t need to cover 100% on the inner skin.

Anyway, here’s a close up…

And then add a Dynazorb!

So, the Dynazorb at about $40 each is a bit extravagant. However, the sound difference is amazing and it actually makes a difference. This means that all up I’ve probably spent close to $150 per door just for sound deadening, but it makes my $300 speakers sound like $600 speakers. So, imagine what $1000 speakers will sound like…
