Don't like adding weight but to kill most of the rear tire noise it's worth
all 20 or so pounds this thing adds. plus it up it makes the Bose sound better. I give it a thumbs up!

Did it myself last week. Like it. I also put the pieces behind the seats UNDER the carpet. Cleaner look.

I bought it from TKO as part of the group purchase. I think it is well worth the investment. It really reduces cabin noise from the Goodyear run flat tires.

When installed, it looks like it covers both rear cubbies in the trunk. Is this true?

I bought it a few years ago and thought it was junk, didn't make a bit of difference, pulled it out and sold it.
Just my opinion though

I found that removing the plastic liner in the back wheel wells, and inserting acoustical insulation wrapped in plastic, filling the cavity in front of the rear wheels cut down tire noise by at least 50%.
There is a bit of insulation in a black plastic bag already, but it does not fully fill the cavity.

Thank you! Glad you like it.
What's nice is if at some time you are looking to hit the track, simply take it out. Like the install, it takes approx 60 seconds to remove. Thank you for your purchase, the kind words and for taking the time to post them!

Awesome to hear! Yes for the C6, many simply lifted the carpet behind the seat (comes right up) and slipped the "behind seat" piece under the carpet.
Thank you for your purchase!

Yes the Blockit really takes a bite out of tire noise especially in states where the top surface has stones and or concrete (TX, CA...etc)

Thank you!

Yes just like an aftermarket carpet. You just simply lift the corner, open your cubby and then place it down when done.

The Blockit Quick & Quiet reduces noise in seconds by simply laying the pre-cut mats in place.
However if you don't mind removing parts, and you want to take it to the next level, check out our DeadMat!
Thin, light weight. The performance to weight ratio is unreal. Fantastic at removing vibration & noise within your vehicle.
Does not have that "tin foil" look.
Check it out here

Thank you all. Here's to a happy and a healthy 2016!!

Default Group Buy??

I was reading about a past group buy on this product. What are the chances of another group buy taking place again? I am so in if it happens.

Thanks as usual
