Hayden, did you notice any resonances in the passenger space, specifically
the rear seats? I did similar to a Jetta years ago, and had normal sound in
the front, and a really annoying resonance you could only hear when in the
rear seat. Mother in law pointed it out once to me. She couldn't hear what
we were talking about, and complained of the noise... I didn't believe her
at first, but later discovered if you stuck your head back into the rear, it
was like you left the cone of silence. wierd.
