    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Good morning everyone, I recently got into the car scene and now I am trying to improve my night drives with the sound of music.

  9. Advice wanted: Soundproofing Scion FR-S + audio makeover

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    I got my FR-S last weekend and absolutely love this car. The only thing is that the road noise is unbearably loud (I used to think an Impreza was noisy, until I got this car). The stock speakers are also some of the worst I've heard. For someone who's used to B&W speakers and AKG headphones, I...

    General Car Audio Discussion
    I have a smaller car which has very tinny sounding lower sill panels when you tap them, I get a lot of road noise from my 18inch tyres and suspect after dynamatting the entire floor that the sill panel is largely to blame. I'm going to dynamat the doors next but was wondering if anyone has...
