    Dynamatt and JBL speakers

    Today I had JBL GTO 626 speakers put in the front doors. They sound fantastic. I would highly recommend them. They are nice overall speakers. Plenty of highs,mids and lows.

    I also had the front doors Dynamatted while they had the doors apart.
    The doors sound much more solid now when closing them. The road noise is also lessened up front. Now I hear the noise coming from the rear seats more than the front which is funny. Sounds like I have a window cracked back there compared to the front noise level. Next I'll change out the rear speakers and Dynamatt back there and the trunk as well.

    My concern was that Dynamatt would add a lot of weight to the car. It weighs .48 lbs per sq. ft. Even if you Dynamatted the entire car it would only add 30 - 40 lbs. I'm just doing the doors and the trunk. That will add maybe 10-15 lbs.

    is a perfect match touch up paint for the stock (newer style) '05+ gun metal wheels.

    Did the rear speaker conversion to JBL's (GTO series) today.

    The sound is so much better than the stock speakers.

    I also had them Dynamatt the rear doors. Removes a little road noise while making the sound system sound better and the doors shut with a THUNK instead of sounding like a tin can.

    Nice. Dynamat makes your car sound amazing. If you're able to dynamat your car and alleviate all the extra rattling, your audio will sound phenomenal. I helped my friend dynomat his RSX a few months ago and unlike those cheap stereos that only sound good from the inside or the front of the car, his sounds sick all around. You're right. It does make the doors feel more solid and not very flimsy. If you want your audio to sound great w/o the rattling, dynamat is the only way to go. You can use some cheaper roofing tar like some people do, but say hello 2 a stinky car in the summer.

    I have a '05 and don't have any rattles yet. Maybe it will prevent them now. Next I'll do the trunk.

    You might get some rattle from the rear license plate. My friend just taped a piece of cardboard behind his and it went away.
