Sound Deadening Pontiac Vibe and Matrix
Quick overview of adding sound deadening to a Pontiac Vibe. Shows door and
hatch area teardown and basic tips. Video shows one door, the other three
doors are roughly the same. Car was 2005, but applies to 2003-2008 Vibe
and Matrix. Overall it gets rid of some resonance in the doors and back,
but depending on your budget other enhancements may provide a better return
on your audio system. Probably invested $250 in material for this project
and 5 + hours. This was only the 2nd time I had done this, but wanted to
show how the Vibe and Matrix came apart for those wanting to do the same.

Notes: All four doors come apart the same, two screws and lots of panel
pins. Used twisted wire for speaker leads. Filter cap installed inline

Boost efficiency of speaker contact
