Sometimes, when upgrading the speakers in a customer’s vehicle, we recommend sound-deadening to really get the most out of the new sound system. The sound-deadening is of course an optional service, but in some cases highly recommended.
Vans or people carriers such as Ford Transits, Volkswagen Transporters and Renault vans all hugely benefit from additional sound-deadening. The average door on a vehicle isn’t acoustically sound for an audio upgrade, as the name suggests we “deaden” the unwanted noise. By adding sound-deadening, we can help to reduce road noise and make the most of the new speakers being installed, really taking the audio to the next level.
Our full 3-stage acoustics process starts with Skinz Expert 3m bitchimin type sheets that we install in the metal of the door. Next, we install a layer of Skinz Panel Liner. And when and where it is necessary, we also add Skinz Wave Diffusers. The sound-deadening installation process is fairly time-consuming, but 100% worth the time, effort and cost.
We recently completed a sound-deadening and speaker upgrade on a 2008 Subaru Impreza, we received the following review from the customer:
“Just a quick note to say that I am delighted with the new system and speakers in the Subaru. The sound quality is excellent and I am so pleased that I took your advice and went with the speakers and sound-deadening too… The sound-deadening, in particular, has made a huge difference. It has obviously reduced cabin noise so that the quality of the system and speakers can shine, but a great side-effect is that it has also changed the sound of the doors closing to a more premium dull thud. All sounds matter to an audiophile like me!”
Below is a time-lapse of an Audi Q7 that visited us in our Sittingbourne workshop for a speaker and sound-deadening upgrade:
Our recommended sound-deadening packages range from £35 up to £300. This price is on top of the speakers that are also supplied and fitted as standard.
