Why does your car make so much noise?

The noise you are experiencing inside the car can be traced back to one of three sources:

  • Noise that comes in through holes, gaps and open windows.
  • Noise created by the mechanical components.
  • Noise created by the road.

The first type of noise is most commonly referred to as wind noise. Wind noise reduction is a simple fix, cover up the holes. Fixing the other two types of car noise is a little more challenging, but rest assure that with our materials , you'll have everything you need to reduce road noise.

Deaden the Rattles - Block the Noise - Absorb the Vibrations

The way technology works in car sound dampening is very similar to the way the technology used to block sound in other parts of the car works. Sound dampening on the metal panels behave very similar to what a shock absorber does to your cars suspension. As the wheels go up and down over road bumps, the shock absorber resists movement in both directions. Sound dampening basically does the same thing, but slightly different, it resists the stretches needed for the metal to move in and out, the amplitude is reduced, in return reducing the sound that is heard inside the car.

There are two main components that matter when checking the quality of a sound dampening material: 1) the quality of rubber and 2) the thickness of material. Our best selling product is Sounskins Pro sound deadening mat, and it's off the charts in both of those components.

The Two Types of Unwanted Noise: Structural & Airborne

Airborne Noise

Airborne noise inside your vehicle is generated from sound waves that get inside and then bounce around in the cabin. The correct way to get rid of these unwanted road noise is by blocking it or absorbing it. You can either make it so that the waves never get to your ears or if they are already inside the car, stop them from bouncing back and forth too much.

Structural Noise

Structural noise is created from the exhaust, tires, and other sources before entering the inside of you vehicle, metal sources and door panels. To you these noise sound like buzzing, rattles, squeaks, etc. Structural noise is especially bad in older vehicles and in vehicles with a loud sound system.
