Wow,major difference before and after.I can't believe how noisy that was at first.Just a suggestion about the RCA's being short.You could remove the tape from the harness and just extend the wires as far as you need to with some descent speaker wire.Or you could reroute the RCA to go down the driver side headliner and down the front A-pillar.

Question......how did you edit/combine multiple videos together on YouTube?

It was crazy how noisy it was without the trim, that rattle back there has been driving me nuts since I got the car, but didn't realize it was that, thought it was something in the spare tire well or a trim panel.

I thought about just soldering in some extension wires to the harness I got from you, but all I have here is a spool of 12ga speaker wire. I didn't eventhink about going up and over, and now I have it all back together. I may revisit that when I take it back apart in phase two. I was probably going to use speedwire to get the signal back to the front harness from the amp so that's an option. Wouldn't take much effort to pull the rca's back and redo it. Would give me more flexibility too. Thanks for that idea.


As to the video, I'd have to look at the YT editor. I have a standalone editing software on my PC that I just tacked all the clips together and rendered to a 720p format, then uploaded that to YT. It was just a basic no frills render, so it didn't take much time.

Well I put about a sheet and a half of deadener on the larger hatch panel, will probably put some on the smaller panel too before I put it together. That would make for roughly 19 sheets of 100 mil deadener in just the cargo/hatch area. I had 20 sheets, 36sq feet. Never thought it would take that much back there, and I didn't come close to 100% coverage like I see a lot of guys do in this car. I just knocked around with my hand and put the material where it sounded like it needed it. The video link is a quick vid of me lightly knocking on the trim panel before I took it apart. Hard to really tell, but trust me it was flimsy. I'll try to take another vid when I get it together, but it's like knocking on a sheet of mdf now that it's got something to stiffen up that plastic.

So I guess I'll have to figure out how much I need to do the doors and add that to my list of stuff to get for the front stage.

I just looked around, doesn't look like you can do it in YT directly. If you have windows movie maker you could use that, but it's not available anymore. So you'd have to get another editing app, there's a windows one that came in windows 10, it's integrated into the photos app. But probably other basic free ones available for windows and phones.

Well, I think two more strips of deadener on the hatch might have been the breaking point of the lifter struts. It will not go up on its own anymore, but it doesn't sink under its own weight either. Just stays wherever I leave it.But man is it solid back there. The rattles from the crap roads I drive to work everyday are pretty much nonexistent now. I'm super happy with those results.

You did! I might have gone heavier than I needed on the plastic panel, but I wasn't all about doing little and putting it all back together to see if it was enough. Weight was still perfect before I put the plastic on there. I'm totally ok with it. The juice was worth the squeeze.

I was wondering if there was a heavier duty strut that would fit?? That'd be nice

Just off topic,I'm getting an itch to expand the front stage in that Terrain.Maybe do a 3-way front,modding the A-pillars to fit a 3" mid-range and tweeter.I know that would raise up and brighten the stage......this car audio stuff stays in your blood man! It might lie dormant for years but it never goes away!

Try this place. . the make replacements, but also sell heavy duty versions. Just look at the specs, measure the current size and then add whatever additional force you estimate you will need. Or... call them. They are really helpful.
