Two things:

[1]. I cannot find this product anywhere. I live in Florida, and I want them for my car. Sucks that I can't find them in a brick-and-mortar store. I prefer buying from physical stores as returns/exchanges and issues can be taken care of with a simple drive to the building.

[2]. How practical are these in reducing sound? I notice that my girlfriend's 09 Focus can be noisy at times, so does this carpet application really generate substantial results in sound deadening (comparable to professional sound deadening products)? Very interested in this concept.

Always thinkin about ways to improve. I like it.

Do you have any ideas for making the hatch quieter?

^^^^^^And by "professional" sound deadening products you mean what....Dynamat or similar? As I've said before.....Dynamat reduces panel vibrations because of it's weight, and provides some sound blockage due to it's density (like a piece of glass), but it does next to nothing to absorb sound reflections, like a piece of carpet.

In most of the places I've used this particular carpet, there is simply no room for anything thicker. Granted a thick piece of real acoustic foam would work better....but it would not fit in most of the places from the pictures. So you make due. You could maybe squeeze Dynamat under the carpet....at great cost with little added benefit.

Interior noise reduction.....check out these threads for more ideas. My car runs quieter than yours.

Blocking out wind and traffic noise.

Misc noise reduction from hatch area

A Mazda engine cover with an acoustic pad

The start of wind noise reduction

Where Dynamat actually worked

There's probably more threads I've forgotten about. And I'm still working on the noise reduction of this car. It's a big job....

Definitely liking what I'm seeing there. I especially like the rubber seals concept. It never dawned on me that most noise came through there. I always figured the window was not thick enough to block out sound.

thanks!

Cool, but I am weary of the wheel well idea. Water, dirt, and grime won't be a problem in that area?

I don't foresee any problems...other than the adhesive not holding. All four wheel wells have the carpet completely covered by the stock fender liners. So any water that gets on the carpet will be minimized. Plus.....that carpet is made from plastic, and will not soak up water.

I remove such things as fender liners yearly.....so if I do see any problems, they can be fixed. Anyway.....putting this carpet under the liners on the outside is completely optional. Just doing the inside of the car might be enough for you.

To cover as much as I did with Dynamat.....wow. I'm up to about 55 square feet of carpet.....so far.

I'm disappointed because I can't find any place that sells these EcoFi carpet tiles. The only one I found is one made out of polyester that resists water and mold, but I'm not sure how well that will hold up or if it will achieve the effect I desire from the former.
