Sound proofing/quieting

Postby GillyMan » Sat Jun 13, 2015 6:08 pm

Looking for any ideas as to reduce road noise in the back of the caddy without compromising space?
My caddy is ply lined, I have then carpeted the floor and foam lined the wheel arches...
I use the back for mountain bikes, the are secured to the floor when needed.

Any ideas are much appreciated...

Many thanks, Andrew

Have you filled the void between the ply & body work?

It was done before I got the caddy, I shall check.
Brilliant idea, best insulation for filling this void?

And did this make a good difference?
Have you a solid bulkhead or vented?
Mine is vented, thinking of a clear Perspex to seal over the vents maybe?

Made a difference but I have no bulkhead.

No problem, thanks very much for your help with this.
I will take the ply off and fill the void.

Have a look at this thread here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=23321

I fitted a set at the weekend - excellent.

I don't have the correct permissions to view that thread yet, but as soon as my account is updated I will check it out.
By the looks of things from your other post it's exactly what I'm after.

Thanks for that :-)
