Question for all the XTZ owners out there

New guy to the forum here , came over from ArcticChat, and was wondering if the folks who have upgraded from the 650 or 700 prowlers to the XTZ 1000 noticed a substantial reduction in interior noise , I have gone to the extent of closing in my 700 xtx behind the seats and used up a couple hundred bucks worth of dynamat extreme , although this has reduced the noise it is still to loud to really enjoy driving it especially on longer rides . A couple of dealers have told me the XTZ is alot quieter inside the cab , but I have to wonder , after a roof , front and rear windshields etc is it enough to warrant , I am happy with the performance of the 700H1 , but woudl trade up in a minute if it there was a lot less noise
thanks in advance bk

i have the 700, never rode in a XTZ, but i assume they are the same?? same engine cover and all, unless i am wrong. sounds like a dealer trying his very best to sell you a XTZ and make more $$. hahahahaha

do you ride with or without a brain bucket ?? ... I know my XZT is quite loud without the helmet on and moderate with it on ... but suggest some foam sound deadners [shooters supplies/industrial supplies] would be the ticket to quiet things down for you

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

There was a thread in here about putting sound dampeners under the dog house to quiet the noise, I think it was called dyna mat, They said it worked great, And was thinking of doing the same to mine..

i thought the loud noise was a great feature! it drowns out the screams of fear from the passengers! lol

but for reals . i used a bunch of Dyanmat to quiet mine down too . helped a bunch but still noisy went on the throttle .

I had an 06xt and it was loud also. I dynamatted the doghouse. It helped some , but it was still loud. I think the XTZ is about as loud as xt, especially if you put intake on it.
