    Default Sound dead....

    Hi all,

    Any advice on what I could do, to deaden the sound in the vectra.

    I've heard of sound deadening panels, but have no idea what I could use.. and also, where would it all need to be put?

    Thumbs up

    Hi Spoons,

    I used a product called 'Dynamat' a few years back when fitting some ICE. Very Good it was too. Helped cancel out Road noise and improve accoustic qualities.

    Various products are on the market - either the Silver Foil stuff which is sold in sheets - Self adhsive or the stuff on a roll which you Glue down.

    Try Demon Tweeks or an ICE supplier.

    Cheers - Matt

    Where you fit it depends on the car & what you are trying to achieve...

    Are your exhaust tips under/behind the rear valance, on some vxrs they are and it causes a lot of noise, if you take them out half an inch it deadens the sound ...
