Question Rear Hatch Area Soundproofing

Hi, I'm looking for some good ideas and advice on materials for soundproofing the rear hatch area of my 84 944, any thoughts? Thanks, Ralph

soundproofing in what way? for road noise, or for musical enhancement.

Dynamat is the best material for this application, both of them. put one layer under the carpet hatch, and a layer around the outside edges of your sub enclosure (on the inside) and there will be a noticeable difference in sound. but you must also keep in mind that this material is adding weight to your car as it is a dense material, so how much you want to use is up to you.

I sure hope none of you guys that have put speakers in the spare tire well ever have a flat.
Where do you carry your spare tire?
Cheers,
Larry

I have a spare tire - it's called AAA.

The sub works great in the spare tire well. I'm using a Bazooka 100 W unit and it's awesome - and completely hidden.

For sound proofing, I just went to Home Depot and got some carpet pad. Basically the same as Dynamat but probably cheaper.

dynamat extreme is the product of choice - much more effective than carpet pad, easy to apply in tight areas - i have done it in all 4 cars, including 2 968s and the results were outstanding

I'm hoping my run flat tires live up to their name.

I wouldn't want to try that 20 year old inflatable tire either. What a piece of crap...mine is gone along with the jack too.

I think the weight savings adds like, 50 hp or something.

You boyz that rely on AAA are risking it if you get out of the Metro areas. Round here you call AAA at midnight you is gunna be waiting till morning to go anywhere. Not many people stock small speed rated tires around here and even fewer of them participate in AAA
