Re: Car Audio, who soundproofed there hood?

Sound guys don't usually care about weight I bet that stuff is pretty light weight, but that in combination with all the other sound proofing added quite a few extra pounds for sure!

Well I really am guessing here, but it seems a 2'x4'x3" piece of this mineral wool weighs about 5-10lbs. With what I packed in there, very solid so I couldnt fit anymore in, I used almost a full piece. So not alot of weight IMO. The hood goes right up with the piston thing on its own, unlike my rear cargo hatch that I completley filled the framing with expandable spray foam and I almost have to push the hatch up.

Oh, with EVERYTHING, all 4 doors, cargo floor, cargo door, and now the hood. Yea 50lbs sounds about right. I'll look up the specs for the membrane I used and try to get a number. But with soundproofing its all about mass loading the vehicle to absorb the noise. And so far its def working with all i have done. The car is alot quieter.
