    I use to use b-quiet back in the day, and it was pretty decent for the price. and i must be getting old cause i have never heard of edead or secondskin.

    oh shit that sucks dude, what happened?

    I use dynamat as well but due to its price and these other products i came across i've been curious.

    I think when I do my next car I'm going to do the whole thing in liquid and thick foam baffling. I'll probably use a combination of products, I might get into SQ competition or something

    Just go to your local hardware store and pick up some roofing assfalt mat, it's the same stuff as basic dynamat for a fraction of the price.

    OR....

    Check out http://www.mcmaster.com/
    They have so much sound proofing and other cool stuff for cheap. Really a great site.

    I just put down 12.5 square feet of Peel & Seal roofing material in my trunk today. I noticed a slight improvement in the amount of exhaust noise coming in but honestly don't think I noticed any improvement in bass response. I bought 2 rolls so I'll probably go over the top with two layers next week and get some eDead for the trunk lid and rear deck panels.

    I was going thru an intersection, and a minivan speed up to try and get in front of me, and nailed my passenger door at 45-55 mph. MY sister was in the passenger seat, it was pretty scary to look over and see a van smash her door in and glass go everywhere, but we were both fine, I just had some cuts and shit, she was perfectly fine.

    Sorry for the late response :p

    also dense expanding foam is good too, put it in the open cavities in yer car, like in the rear quarter panels, i did it to my old sentra and it works pretty good, what ever overflows can be cut out with a knife, they sell it at home depot, it's called great stuff, it's a cheap n easy was to fill in those spaces

    B-quiet is good stuff, but I would not recomend it for use on roofs. Especially down here in the Texas heat, it will melt off.
    Great stuff on floors though.

    We've been using Hush matt with good results.

    i dynamatted by entire car (99 integra) and really didn't notice much difference; of course it was only afterward that i realized there was a foam insulation that i shoudl've used which would've eliminated the road and tire noise which is what i was trying to do

    My installer swears by Cascade Audio. I plan on getting it installed after I get back from vacation.

    I used Raamat in my truck...

    Hhhhhoooo what a difference!

    I have everything in my cab covered EXCEPT the roof and the passenger side floor... I ran out :mamoru:

    It was nice to work with, seemed a little thicker than dynamat, came in a 62.5 ft roll, and has definatly changed the interior acoustics of the truck!

    I need to get some more though for the roof and to finish the passenger side... Rick at Raam is a good guy to deal with.

    The Raammat is good stuff, but the real winner is the Ensolite foam Rick sells in combination with his mat... the foam is what helps with road noise, the mat helps deaden panel resonance. Together they make a big difference.

    i've read good reviews of brown bread www.b-quiet.com/brownbread.html
    btw, i'm using dynamat exteme, and i noticed lower exhaust note and more bass, but it's expensive.
