If you follow us on Facebook you have seen the hundreds of Toyota installations we have performed using this matting. When properly applied matting provides 3 huge benefits in provide much better overall sound quality.
- Speaker front / rear wave cancellation. As you have seen in the vast majority of concerts, movie theaters and home audio systems. Speakers are “encased” in box. This is done for a number of reason. The primary reason to avoid the front sound waves to come in contact with the rear sound waves emitted. If the rear and front sound waves are not separated you will get cancellation. By properly matting the door, you will increase mid bass coming from your door speakers.
- Rattling / vibration. The sheet metal in all new car doors is made of thinner steel. Although this steel is hardened for additional strength, you will notice rattling when you install speakers with significant power applied to your new speakers / subwoofers.
- Ambient noise reduction. If you have ever driven in a high-end vehicle you will quickly notice how “quiet” the ride is. If you open up door panels and look under the carpet you will see much more sound dampening material is used in higher end vehicles. By reducing the ambient road noise you will notice an increase in volume and sound quality.
Do I need to matt / sound deaden my vehicle?
IF your budget and or time allow, we highly recommend matting. The vast majority of our customers that have install matting – do so from past experience. If it is not in the budget, consider adding it a later time. But it makes a lot more sense to do while you have the truck / car taken apart for the speaker / sub woofer installation.
How much matting do I need?
. This bulk pack is large enough to cover just about every Toyota we have listed here on our site. The Toyota Tundra Crewmax will use every sheet in this bulk pack. The Tacoma will have a couple sheets extra – in the Tacoma we matt some of the flooring in our own vehicles with the left over material. Camry, Corolla etc, we recommend d matting the trunk. We have some matting videos for quite a few cars to help you get it installed properly
Will it reduce exhaust and tire noise.
If you have mud tires and or a loud exhaust matting the doors and rear wall, will help reduce the noise just a bit. The challenge you face with exhaust and tires – is the sound is coming from UNDER the vehicle. To greatly reduce exhaust/tire noise would require at least two layers on the floor of your vehicle.
