When we listen to a home stereo, we have ideal conditions: A quiet environment, speakers pointing to the "sweet spot" on the same axis, etc. By properly aligning the speakers, and designing a good crossover, a sweet spot can be achieved on a car with as good quality sound, staging and imaging as a high-end home stereo.

There is still one thing that is different between a car and a home stereo listening room: The background noise. There are all kinds of exterior (road noise, rain hitting the windshield, etc.) and interior (rattles) noises that draw attention away from the music in a car. To make up for the road noise, we simply turn the stereo up louder.

Even though it is impossible to eliminate the noise completely in a car. There are products that will decrease the noise floor a great deal, particularly on non-luxury cars. Reducing the noise in a car will make a big difference in the audio system's performance and overall ride comfort.

Tar mats and similar products such as Xsite are used to reduce resonances in metal panels. A car lined with a mat will have a much lower road noise. To add a mat liner to a car, seats, carpet, door panels, etc. have to be removed. With the help of a heat gun, and a small wallpaper roller, the material can be laid over door panels, floors, wheel wells, etc.
