Sound Deadening

316 Customs keeps the noises you want in, and the ones you don’t out with custom sound deadening material installation. With the best auto sound deadening materials, you can control vibration noises from your car, block road noises, and get better sound quality from your auto equipment- making it a great investment for the cost.

At 316 Customs, customers ask us how to install sound deadening materials in vehicles all the time, especially in fixer-uppers. This is because auto soundproofing is more important than you might think. When you’re sitting in your driveway or a parking lot, your audio sounds terrific. Then, when you pull out onto the road, hit a few bumps, or go out on the highway your tunes start to fade out and your bass all but disappears. This is because noises come from everywhere (usually vibrations caused by driving), and these sounds start to add up in a small space like the interior of your vehicle.

What is Sound Deadening, And Why is Auto Sound Proofing Important?

Buzzes, rattles, and road noise can ruin even the best sounding rides. And the fact of the matter is, without a little tender love and care, your vehicle isn’t going to have the quality of noise deadening materials out of the factory that it needs to completely block out sound. Plus, older cars (especially muscle cars) just don’t have the noise deafening materials to give you the sound quality that you want from premium audio systems and your car’s oversized engine.

There are a lot of auto soundproofing materials on the market, but most of them are only worth the cost when they’re installed properly, and even then, they require hours of meticulous work (if you aren’t a service technician).

Our technicians can literally rebuild the interior of your car from the wheels up, adding layers of insulation practically everywhere on your ride. This ensures the best sound quality for your vehicle, no matter the driving conditions you find yourself in. Afterwards, we’ll reinstall the individual pieces of your vehicle and let you hear the difference yourself.

What Kinds of Sounds Do Sound Deadening Materials Block?

Our technicians take their time to ensure that all sounds (wind noise, mechanical rattles, vibrations from audio, road noise, thermal reduction, and even drivetrain noises) are reduced effectively. This means installing high-quality, dense auto sound deadening materials to the doors, floor, firewall, trunk, rear deck, and roof of your vehicle. These installations can be extraordinarily time consuming and damaging to your existing door paneling and upholstery if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Like we mentioned earlier, there are several options to choose from when you’re deciding on the best sound deadening materials for vehicles. These options include damping mats, various types of insulation, sprays and foams. Until you consult with a professional, it’s hard to choose what type of soundproofing insulation is best. It’s important to remember that different materials block different types of sound as well, but this is determined by the quality of the material and the overall quality of the installation techniques used.
