Professional Stereo Install Questions
I'm planning on getting some audio stuff put into the celica. I don't know too much about it, so I'd rather have a reputable sound shop do it, rather than trying myself.
I do have a lot of questions after talking with a few of them:
About the only gripe I have with the celica is how loud it is. Since I got
it dropped, and put on low profile tires, the sound has been driving me mad,
and playing the radio over it has been giving me headaches.
The first shop I've talked to recomend dynamat in the doors.
They're quoting me 150 in materials and 50 for labor to do both doors. Is that a fair price?
For those who've filled their doors with this stuff, how much quieter does it get?
The second shop is also recomending doing the floors. I havent heard of putting sound dampening there before.
Will putting a layer of dynamat under the carpet help a lot?
Is most of that tire/road noise coming in through the doors, or floor?
Between the carpet and floormats and the frame of the car, I would of thought the floor is already pretty well insulated.
The panels they're recomending for under the floor are expensive and they look really heavy. I believe they're Dynamat Extremeliner. They want 200 in materials and 100 in labor to do the floors of the car.
Again, is that a fair price? To me it looks overpriced and unnecessary.
I'll be listening to a bunch more before I make up my mind, but generally, what are your opinions on Alpine type S componants and Coax's for the back? They seem reasonably priced and sounded really good to me.
Last question, is there any particularly good reason to get 2 smaller amps; one for the fronts, and one for the rears, vs a larger 4 channel one to run everything?
