The Mazda3 has been around since 2004 and burst onto the scene in the compact car segment. It became very popular among a lot of drivers thanks to its aggressive styling, great gas mileage, and low cost. The Mazda3 could cater to anyone that just needed a comfortable, reliable daily driver or even for the high-performance car enthusiast when the Mazdaspeed3 was offered. Today, the Mazda3 is continuing to be one of the top-selling compact cars in the U.S. market, thanks to its massive styling refresh and turbocharged engine.
We've heard a lot of people complain about Mazda3 road noise and, while it's not unbearable for many people, everyone’s sensitivity to sound is different and quite a few people would like to make their ride a little quieter. With the Mazda3 being a very popular commuter car, it's even MORE important to have a comfortable ride. Whether you're looking to upgrade the exhaust system, audio setup, or just want to have a peaceful driving experience, here are a few solutions to keep your ride quiet and comfortable.
Mazda3 Cabin Noise Reduction Treatment
The nice part about the Mazda3 is that it's simple, just like our noise reduction treatment. If you’re looking for the best possible road noise and engine noise reduction you should be looking into one of our Mid-Size Sedan Vehicle Packages. This package is specifically designed to stop both structural and airborne noises. We use Damplifier Pro which is designed to reduce vibrations and withstand harsh conditions for the lifetime of your Mazda3. We combine with Luxury Liner Pro to be able to reduce the cabin noise of your Mazda3 by 10-15 dB!
This vehicle package includes a combination of two of our best-performing Mazda3 soundproofing products:
The first is the top-performing sound deadening mat, Damplifier Pro. See, a lot of cabin noise in your Mazda3 is going to be caused by vibrations from the metal components in your car. Damplifier Pro is the best at reducing structural noise in your car, and you only need 60% coverage for extreme vibration reduction. Damplifier Pro can be applied to the floor, doors, roof, firewall (cabin or engine side), trunk, and hood to deaden the metal. Once you stop the vibrations of all of your body panels, you'll stop the noise.
Luxury Liner Pro
The next product in the package is Luxury Liner Pro, which is our best performing mass loaded vinyl sound barrier. By installing it with 100% coverage on the cabin side firewall and floor, you will create an unbroken noise barrier between you and the airborne noise (engine, tire, road noise) getting into your Mazda3 cabin. Simply put, Luxury Liner Pro complements Damplifier Pro by rejecting any airborne noise that isn't from a body panel of your car.
Remember that we sell both of these products in a single-vehicle package. If you're wanting a setup for your Mazda3, we'd recommend getting yourself the Mid-Size Sedan Package for the best results.
How to reduce Mazda3 Tire Noise
Noticing that most of your Mazda3's noise is coming from the road and your tires? Sometimes certain tires are louder than others just because of the construction and design of each model. If you're sick of hearing tire noise, then the best overall treatment is still going to be that Damplifier Pro and Luxury Liner Pro combination.
You also have another option for road and tire noise. Spectrum Liquid Deadener is here to save the day! Spectrum is the most cost-effective and easest to install sound deadening treatment that can also go on the vehicle’s exterior. For sound deadening wheel wells, all you need to do is spray this deadener into your wheel wells and you will knock out a good chunk of that noise. We'd recommend getting 2 gallons of Spectrum Liquid Deadener and applying it to a total thickness of 3mm (3 layers). This will cover all 4 of your wheel wells and provide a noticeable difference in road noise.
This is a really popular option for a lot of our customers because you don't need to go and remove interior panels to apply it. Simply spray or brush it directly onto the metal of your wheel wells and notice the 3-5 dB reduction in noise! Why waste $1000 on a new set of quieter tires when you can just apply this liquid deadener?
