Depends what your trying to deaden.  In-front of the Bulk head and behind the IP then carpets i'd guess in terms of best benefit.

If you want to crank the bass up with minimum vibration etc then dynamat etc on the inside of the doors can be useful.  Just remove the door cards first  :P

well as this is my first post me thinks you should be honoured....

if your trying to deaden the rattles/distortion form the speakers in the doors then you should deaden the door itself. to go on from this you should deaden the outer door skin. as i have never taken apart the 3's door here's how i have previously done it.
remove the window and slide one large piece into the door from above them gently using a decorators roller make sure the deadening gets 100% contact.

after this it all depends where your sound is rattling e.g. if you have a subwoofer in the boot then th whole of the boot would be a good idea to deaden.

if it is road noise you are trying to deaden then you can use 'envirolay' £15 for a massive sheet and you just put this everywhere; roof, doors, boot, floors i mean everywhere hope this helps

is there anything that can be applied to the back of the plastic wheel arches that will absorb the road noise??

you could always try removing the wheel arch lining giving it a good clean and sticking the envirolay to the back using 'contact adhesive' NOT spray glue.

same again really, envirolay and contact adhesive.

envirolay will reduce road noise and stuff like dynamat will stop vibrations, or as the advert says 'sound like a golf'
