You can try but that stuff's ment to dampen bass, not the weeeeeeeeeeee that's coming out the hole in the back that you can't cover, so I personally think it's a wase of time unless you've mounted an Infinity Kappa in there...LOL Just my opinion, I could be wrong

no, if im not mistaken, its to reduce road noise and keep the sound in the car, like insolation between walls in a house. it might work, then again it might not.... just turn up your tv some more.

i think that stuff is too thick to work in the xbox... it would block a lot of the air holes and your xbox would overheat... just get a quieter fan tongue.gif
