I swear, only Tesla owners would run a spectrum analyzer on the noise in their car! Hilarious!

We wouldn’t need to if it wasn’t the worlds biggest bass drum rolling down the road. The amount of extremely low frequency noise that the Model Y amplifies while going down the road is unequaled, in my experience.

When I finally get my Y (expected 12/16), I'll experiment with acoustical clouds, which are hung in major concert halls around the world to help break up reflected sound.

I'll probably hang different sized Tesla emblems, maybe a rotating mobile. I'll keep you posted.

Well, mine is being delivered tomorrow, so I think I will need to get a snare and a hihat!

Seriously, I would get that shelf for the back. I'm a bass player, and low frequency sounds are best controlled with baffling.

Someone used to make one, but i can't seem to find it.

I have on in my MY and it has made a big difference in cabin noise.

I had mine in for service for some crazy wind noise on the passenger side of the car. While it’s better, it’s still there. Driverside is silent. Thinking about the RPM kit. It’s weird it’s only on the passenger side. Other than that, car is silent.

I took delivery of my Model Y in early November. This week, I made a round trip of about 675 miles. My daughter and I both talked about how quiet the car is. I've been quite impressed with it - no problems at all, and I wear hearing aids which accentuates peaky sounds.

BTW - mine does NOT have the new laminated double-glass windows.
