    Did I dream it or did someone mention putting rubber mats under the carpet ones is a good way of sound deadening? Can't find anything through the search.

    I've got rubber mats under my original Honda ones and it does help a bit. I think the majority of noise comes from the poor road surfaces to be honest. But, if the Accord was double glazed, super insulated etc then I wouldn't hear the lovely engine and exhaust tone :Smile:

    Graham do the rubber mats in your car use the Honda hooks? or they smaller than the carpet.

    They were cheap Halfords ones which I cut down to size. The grips on the underside are immense so there's no risk of slipping so I put them under the carpet ones and the rubber ones are cut to a fraction smaller than the carpet ones (which are hooked in on the driver's side).
