Thanks, giving this a try next week.

I had the sony in my 17 f250 platinum and now have the B&O in the 18 raptor. The B&O is a slight improvement from the sony, but looking forward to even more "slight improvement."

I wrapped my sub a couple weeks ago and have been happy with the results. Definitely a cleaner sound with a little extra bump!

did this yesterday as well...... ended up getting the noico 80mm 10sq ft kit from amazon for $20. I think I used less than half of the material.

Extra thump and cleaner sound. Not as muffled. I feel like you can hear the different frequencies from the subwoofer now.

Recommend the hour worth of work on this one.

The wife drove the truck to the work yesterday, so she was all up for doing this while "stock" was stuck in her head. If she wants to help on modifications I'm all for it...

Anyways, I ended up using Kilmat (I had a crap ton of ebay bucks so it was basically free) and it made a huge difference IMO. I do feel as though you can hear the different frequencies produced by the sub as the previous poster mentioned. Definitely worth it if you're wanting to keep the stock sub and/or sub box.

I don't know what improvements it made just yet, I will know once I have more seat time. However, I am not an audiophile and typically cannot tell the difference between slight changes in audio quality.

I happened to notice you didn't roll the mat onto the box w/a roller. Does it matter?

Yes, the mat has to be stuck to the box to do its job.
