    Default Sound Deadening

    Price isnt a factor here. i want to know the best sound deadening material. also which is better, dynamat or fatmat? and, anybody had any experience with rattle trap? if so, how does it compare to dynamat and fatmat? are there any other brands out there that are better? i heard someone talk about a jbl product which claims to reduce the noise by 10 decibils or something. not really sure. just wondering what the best out there is.
    any posts with exerience/advice about any sound deadening product are welcome :D

    I prefer Dynamat over any of the rest. Its more dense, sticks better and is easier to work with than the few others Ive tried.

    I prefer Dynamat also it is among the best you can buy. Why settle for any less than the best.

    spend the little extra to get the extreme, i find it to be much easier to work with (try putting non-extreme dynamat on in 20 degree weather...)

    Hell, Extreme is about all you can find now. Tweeter is where I get all mine at and thats all they have. Im not even sure if they make standard Dynamat anymore.

    regular dynamat can be had online for dirt cheap if you look in the right places -- since tarpaper doesn't have any mechanical or electrical parts to break, it's not like you need a warranty - so to hell with authroized dealers... get it from a greasy bastard who hasn't showered in a month, who cares.

    I havent seen it anywhere. Crutchfield used to carry it but now all they have is Extreme.

    Doesnt matter tho, I do mine in such small sections it doesnt cost me much.

    Whenever Ive got $20 burning a hole in my pocket and some time to kill Ill run down and buy some and apply it to some trouble spots.

    As my car gets older it seems to be asking for more Dynamat.

    I have not had the chance to try extreme.

    Reading off the specs though, it is almost three times as effective, is thinner, and weighs less. remember that when comparing cost to regular... it's not just a little difference.

    Interestingly, at summer temperatures, dynamat looses it's effectiveness. At the temperatures the body reaches, dynamat extreme will have the effectiveness of cold original. and hot original is semi-worthless.

    I want to find whet my car's manufacturer used... they installed squares of deadener that are similar to dynamat, but are consistent to a 2mm thick peice of plastic.

    Maybe cody can compare his second skin for us. Dynamat lists specs, I didnt see any on seconskin.
