oIIIIIIo I was thinking about using this product call "Great Stuff" foam that comes in a can. I used this for my sound systems when I did mine years ago.

Easy Sally. I was just throwing out a price. I have no idea what I'm going to spend, but because my 13yr is starting to get into sewing, we frequent a place by our house. I was just going to run in there and buy a bag.

Still reading through that thread, but some people swear by it, others don't see a difference. Seems more the TJ folks are with it, but doesn't seem to effect the JK's that much.

To me, for $10, I'll give it a try. I'm just wondering if the effect is mostly with the top/doors on. When I'm topless, the sound just shoots out the back anyway. But we'll see.

Anybody have any ideas?

aocabrown I made some comments in a recent thread about it. I just did my entire jeep with sound deadening material, including the sound pods. Couple of things.....I bought the polyfill from a craft store and used in my sub box. However...when putting in the pods (my pods have dome lights) I try to see if the polyfil would burn and it did rather easily. That made me nervous should the done light stay on for a long time. So..I just used some of my other material from the rest of the jeep and I think it sounds fine. The material I used was like Dynamat only better....two products from a company called RAAMaudio...used the aluminum sheet stuff topped off with sticky foam material called ensolite. Good luck wih whatever direction you take.

A lot of guys her suggest "polyfill", which is pillow-stuffing sold at a craft store. Just loosely fill the speaker cavity, remount, and (some say) it significantly improves what you get out of the stock speakers.

Jerry Bransford You only need to stuff the speaker openings with polyester (polyfil) pillow stuffing which any yardage store sells in big bags. Car stereo shops sell the same stuff at 10-20X the price.
