Dynomat for stock 10 speaker system.
 
Has anyone that has one of the stock Alpine systems in their Wk2 just used Dynomat on the doors? Did it give a worthwhile result?

Thanks

No personal experience on my WK2, but a sound deadening treatment will always give a worthwhile result.

Worthwhile of course, is up to an individual's interpretation. It's a lot of labor or a lot of $$ to pay someone to do it.

I built a home theater so did a lot of research on acoustic treatments. As they say in home theater, "I'd rather have $500 speakers with $5,000 worth of acoustic treatment than $5,000 speakers with $500 worth of acoustic treatment"

That being said, the WK2 is a very solidly built vehicle and the interior materials lend themselves well to acoustics...but inside the door, if you can reduce vibration by any amount thus redirecting energy away from the door and into the speaker/cone...your sound is going to improve.

You should definitely do it and report back to us :D

Exactly to the point.

Best for now. :)

I'll have to look at some internals of doors to decide if I could be bothered.
The main issue I have is that as soon as I try to play certain (low) frequencies the sound just turns into a vibrating sloppy mess and usually just move onto another song. If it will fix that (to a large degree) it could be worthwhile.
I just don't want to get too much of the bug for this car (like my Focus) and start fitting it out with Focal's and Alpine PDX's, etc, etc... :)

If you throw $500 in sound deadening, it will cure any vibrations you have, but the sound coming from the OE Alpine system will still be horrible. Honestly, most new vehicles are dampened pretty well. If you want to significantly improve your sound, this is not where to start. I also wouldn't buy Dynamat. There are much better/cheaper alternatives: Second Skin, Sound Deadener Showdown, Raamat, etc.

EDIT: Just noticed OP is in Australia. I'm unsure of product availability over there?
