Consider infinity speakers In the front doors, ($100 speakers), & sound dampening all 5 doors 100%, ($150). We used 80 mil Killmat, & 150 Norco closed Cell Foam over the top.
We did it last week.
Rich, crisp & nice base without spending a huge amount of money, and lowing the Dedible level in the cab by 5 Dsbl levels.
We considered just getting better speakers &/or replacement of all 8 speakers only. But why, if you can’t hear the difference? So instead we sound dampened all five doors, and replace only the front door speakers with infinity speakers.
We are considering dampening the floor, but we haven’t made a decision yet. We will however, Put in a woofer in the back similar to the woofer that is in the touring CRV. Nothing crazy, just enough to make a big difference.
Right now, The sound is amazing, the tweeters crack, woofer has much more bass, I can hear each individual instrument, and the sound is rich. If I didn’t dampen the doors, I think it would have made the cabin more noisy and the speakers may have sounded muddy without clarity. At this point, I will finish up the back doors and replace those speakers with the infinity $100 speakers. My car sounds great, and if we decide to do the floorboards and the wheel wells, I hope my car will sound like a high end car. I wish I could find someone who has done it already, to see if it’s something worth attempting. It’s fairly easy to dampen, simple, but takes time, but worth the work if you decide to do it.
