I was just wondering what all you guys use to soundproof your car. I am mostly looking for any websites that sell soundproofing material. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Dynamat and fatmat are two big names I know. Never used either though.

Second skin has some respectable variations out there, E- dead seams to be good for a budget, dynomat often is overpriced for the name but works well.

I used R-blox that alinyoungjr sold me, Awsome stuff that I highly recommend

its called peel N' seal. its not really sound deadening, its more of a insulation for house vents and such. I personally would not use it just based on the fact that it is asphault based.

but to each his own

One layer of this on my trunk lid stopped the lid from rattling. Need to do the rest of the trunk.... one day.

Cost is around $16-$17 at Home Depot. They also have bigger rolls that you have to ask for.

I have never used it, but I have heard alot of VW guys use it on the firewall, and it works great

Well basically what your doing is adding mass to the lid and the peel N seal was heavy enough for your application, might work might not. Depends on how much deadening you need.

I put his 'damplifier pro' in my doors to reinforce the speaker install and I'm very happy with it . Its sticky enough to adhere without heating but its still better to hit it with a heat gun and rub it in with a heavy glove . The cheapest heat gun you can find should be plenty hot, a hair dryer won't be .

Another option is B-quiet.com. Just installed 100sq/ft in my car for less than $100. Look for deals on e-bay too.

that b-quiet is the first sound deadener that I said to myself "that looks exactly the same as Peal N' seal."

i wonder if its the same stuff re-named.

Well I got some Dynamat Extreme for my front speakers and it looks the same except it has their logo on the foil. This stuff is made in Canada and used to be called Brown Bread. The have a comparison chart of how the materials compare.

I'm really not that interested. Sorry to disappoint.

I like my Second Skin. icon_biggrin.gif
