Is it Possible to Soundproof a Car?

Filed under: Soundproofing Appliances — Tags: — admin @ 7:48 am

Hundreds upon thousands of people spend hours every day sitting in their cars. While some of us enjoy rolling down the windows and blasting the radios, others prefer to ride in complete silence – enjoying the time alone. Sadly, those who really want to enjoy their ride in quiet usually have to deal with the sound leaking from the car’s engine compartment into the passenger area. So can this sound be reduced?

Believe it or not, it is possible to sound proof your car if you don’t already have a top-of-the-line model with soundproofing features built in. You’ll start by removing the hood liner you have in place and then follow by cutting a piece of mass loaded vinyl that is the same size. Make sure you clean the underside of the hood and let it dry before applying some contact cement to both the hood and the vinyl. When the cement becomes tacky you’ll apply the mass loaded vinyl directly to the hood.

It may seem strange to sound proof a vehicle but you’ll immediately notice a significant reduction in the amount of sound escaping from the engine compartment. Try it for yourself. We guarantee you’ll be impressed with the results!
