If you can afford to buy a 3 foot wide roll of Dynamat Original or Extreme to have around, it is a good idea IMO, so when you have an interior panel off, you can try to clean the sheet metal, heat it and the Dynamat up, and slap some on that interior compartment for sound deadening. I just put some in the rear portion of my extended cab full size Chevy truck (I was replacing the rear speakers with some Rockford Fosgates, bought on eBay).

To heat the Dynamat, I am using a waterbed mattress heater, which works excellent for that.

As for the other stuff, I'm definitely open to suggestions, all I really know about car audio at this point is that alpine is generally good, and that Crutchfield has really good instructions

Thanks.

The only part about Alpine I'm convinced of is that their iPod menus and connectivity are the best available. Beyond that things are up for grabs.

It cost me $50 to do the trunk and the doors to manu spec. I couldn't do a single door with that stuff. Like I said, the trade-off of cost and performance is something everyone has to make the call on themselves.

That said, as soon as I get a new car, I'm going to try to put some matting in instead since it will be a long-distance vehicle and I've read the lack of engine, road, and wind noise will make it much less exhausting to drive for long periods.
