I mentioned sealing my mic off so well that if I put my palm over it. The other side hears absolute silence. When I remove my palm and don't speak all they hear is what sounds like rushing wind noise. It doesn't sound anywhere near that loud to my ears in the car but obviously to a mic that is turned up so sensitive it does.
Some have actually dynamatted the whole roof, and yeah, they had to remove the headliner. Also, many have only insulated the area surrounding the mic, as the headliner IS the noise-deadener for the rest of the roof. I would think if you could insulate the mike locally, it would help. Are you saying the its the ambient noise from INSIDE the car that is causing this?
