Dynamat and other sound heat and vib mats: Compare



So who all is using Dynamat sound heat and vib mats???
Anyone using other brands???

Man are them things pricy.

$28 for 2 10"x10" pieces of Dynamat

Some roll on crap
http://www.quietcar.net/?gclid=CKvz9...FQIWFQodaVy9HQ

Stuff called 2nd skin that is pricy like dyna
http://www.secondskinaudio.com/

And I found smitty mats about 1/3 the pirce of them all.

Look like everyone sell the same basic stuff, those that sponsor racing and have adds on TV just charge out the BLEEP for it............ Also a friend who got dynamat form summit just the other day the salesmen said the price will be going up here soon.

Just hard to spend that much but want some comments.

I've heard from quite a few folks that Dynamat is over-priced and that you are bascally paying for the name. You might want to check into B-Quiet or Fat Mat.

If you are looking for the best...look no further than Second Skin. It's what I plan on using in mine once I get that far.

B-quite is very comparable to Dynomat and a lot cheaper i would recommend it plus the guy is very friendly.

There was a mat that resto guys were using that is from Home Depot. I forget what the name was but it is a stick on insulation mat that was half the price of the Dynamat stuff. It comes in rolls.

Anyone got any prices on what it cost to do a full interior?
On a full interior gut?


Did ya also know that most of that stuff wants you to over lap the edges a
1/4-1/2in that would feel lumpy under the carpet.

1/2in thick stuff, with over laps, makes 3/4-1in thick bumps all over the place.
Gonna need some thick jute padding to make it feel nice.

And I hate the jute padding, it does nothing but hold water and rust your car from the inside out. 90% of all rust holes in the floor of a GM started on the inside. One of the first things I remove from every car.

Hence needing something to help block sound/heat

thats why you get closed cell foam padding it cost more but wont cause you problems

and i did a lot of research on this stuff way back when i was doing this and i believe my conclusion was that second skin was the best stuff and most cost efficient.but things may have changed since then there are other great products out there and all kinds of options that will give you different levels of performance

You are still correct. Second skin is amazing.

OK, so I just got hold of my first Camaro. It's a project and I am starting with cleaning the interior. Only thing left to take out is the driver seat and carpeting.

My question is Not so much the brand of deadener, but how MUCH to use...

Since I am taking the carpet out, should I just Dynamat (or whatEVER product) the whole floor? Or is it sufficient just to deaden the hatch area where the subs will be?

Just a quick measurment on the hatch appears to be 20 sq ft of material needed. Any idea how much to do the WHOLE car?

TIA for your response.

Mike

I ended up using SmittyMats for the weight savings as Im only running
a small 2.8 V6 in my 3rd gen Firebird. [With a Fageol SuperCharger ]

I can say order more then you think you need, stuff is handy.
Also get the tape, was gonna cheap out and use chrome ducttape [walmart]
But that aluminum foil tape is nice.
