2008 vs 2009 Cabin noise

Is the 2009 much of an improvement over 2008 in sound level? I know they say it is an improvement so just wondering.

How does either model year compare to a Rhino 700 (not the 660) with the airbox under the hood?

Thanks!

The blue LE at the dealer with the roof installed sounded the same as my 08 LE with roof. I guess the roof and windshield trap more sound in.

Thanks. Without a relocation of the airbox like with the Rhino I doubted there was much of a difference.

I read on the Rhino forums that the bed and roof really "trap" a lot of noise.

My 4 seat roof makes it really loud in there. I think the 2 seat is not as bad. I feel sorry for people running the aFE and have a metal 4 seat roof. Earplug time.
