Noise reduction

Is there a top that can fit under my existing soft top to reduce noise?

Never heard of it, but you can buy a bestop sailcloth top and replace your existing top with it to reduce noise.

I have a sailcloth top, and it doesn't really live up to the advertised noise reduction. It is heavier and looks nice, but it still flaps, bulges, and makes the thunder sound as it vibrates at high frequency at highway speeds. I would only recommend this if you need to replace the top. I do like the tinted rear plastic though.

There was a company up in Canada that used to make an insulated liner. It partially covered the windows too. They claimed it made it warmer and quieter. I always wondered what would happen if you just cut a quilt into segments, and resewed it to fit the dimensions of the top. Then you just velro and tuck it in. Might help.

Bestop just released a headliner that fits under the top. I don't think you'll find it in stores yet, but should be there in a few weeks. It's foam backed material, so you get some decent sound and heat/cold insulation. Don't know how much less noise -- I haven't had a chance to play with it all yet.

I'm at home, and don't have the price list so I might be wrong, but I think MSRP is going to be $200. So street sales price somewhere between $180-210?

I can get better info on Monday.

We might start seeing reviews of this soon.
