Honestly. I wouldn't trust having a fuse holder held with velcro. Just my .02
I have an entire thread on the subject. Grab a coffee and check it out:

So I finished deadening my doors today:

Inner door skin:

Apply 2 layers of CLD inside. Apply generous layer outside to anything that will vibrate:



Secure loose harnesses with closed cell foam:














Job complete. No loose rattling harnesses on inner door. Air leaks plugged up. Floppy plastic pieces covered up in CLD sheet to make them more rigid. Good enough for now.


To be continued:

Door card / trim.

Did the same for left and right. Similar theme. dampen anything that squeaked or rattled.

Peel back factory felt



The factory BOSE grill was sqeaky as heck. Each heat staked rivet was loose. I covered everything I could in butyl rope to dampen vibration. The end result was pure silence when you press on the speaker grill. Far better than the squeaky mess it was.







Large open flat surfaces like the back of the cup holders resonate like mad when bass is playing. So, I dampened them up too.



Since the midrange is mounted to the door trim panel I wanted to dampen the region surrounding it too. With midrange blaring I am sure the trim resonates along with it. So, tame it down.



Go throughout the door trim panel and secure loose wires.





Totally deaden the air space around the midrange and try to isolate it from midbass.





Put felt back and prepare to re-install:

I bought this little LED grabber tool at Harbor Freight that saves a lot of hassle replacing recessed screws. Sorry if the focus is off. I had been working on the car for 12 hours in the rain and my mind was fried.

Finally, I finished my tweeter install. Not sure if this was required but thought it would be a good idea anyway. I placed a bunch of closed cell foam around the tweeter body before putting the grill back on. I figured the foam may dampen any back reflections. We'll see...

Well, if you are going to go big. You might as well to all out.

My rear fill speakers were mounted to flimsy little plastic panels. Again, I don't want vibration and buzzing noises coloring my sound. So...

Deaden up the panels







Apply foam to soak up standing waves behind the speaker

If you don’t mind sharing, what foam is that and where do you get it?
