Sound Deadening

From the factory, Corvettes from all generations are not well sound insulated. Consequently, the cabin’s interior contains desired (e.g. that awesome growl from your engine) and undesired sound (e.g. wind noise, roar from the tires particularly at high speeds). The modification to the car of suppressing undesired outside noise is referred to as “Sound Deadening” and is available as a service by CA Corvette Customs for those in Southern California. Sound deadening is typically desired for the person who wants to upgrade their car’s sound system and demands the finest listening experience. However, those who also merely want it noticeably easier to carry on a conversation with a passenger or use their cell phone have also done sound deadening.

Sound deadening offered by CA Corvette Customs is completely customizable by the customer. We can give you the near quiet ride of a luxury car or give you an improved car audio listening experience and have you not forget you’re driving America’s most awesome sports car. Installations involve the complete removal of car’s interior (e.g. seats and carpeting) and the installation from one to three layers of material depending upon customer’s goals and budget.The layers are briefly described below

Layer 1 – Vibrational dampener
Layer 2 – Sound dampener material 1
Layer 3 – Sound dampener material 2 (for the quieter ride goal)

As we’re a company that does not cut corners in everything we do, we use only the highest quality sound dampening materials which we acquire from SecondSkinAudio.com.
