Using a hard material to seal hole in door or only use the deadener itself


Recommended Posts

I have seen people sealing the holes with abs plastic, metal and other materials to really seal the door. Is the necessary or could I just trust the actually deadener itself to seal it?

Every project is different and every installer has different goals. If you cover those holes you are essentially creating an enclosure for your door speakers, which will create more mid bass, but also can create too much pressure build up. I think most of the installers I have seen use the Luxury Liner Pro to seal the holes, as the person above says, if you use the butyl you'll have sticky butyl over the hole with nothing for it to stick to and it could get pushed around a bit by the air pressure and touch something you don't want it touching so be careful with that. Here is a good video of Mark from Car Audio Fabrication using this type of method. CAF Increase Mid Bass

Over built to over perform - because user error, bad batch, and faulty install are excuses that other companies use!
