    I'm about to order a 12' FT Roll of Dynamat Extreme to dampen my Front.. I'm just going to dampen my front 2 doors, since thats where most of the rattling is occuring.. Would 12ft be enough for the front 2 doors? Or should I get 24 FT? I have a Mazda 3 sedan..

    Thanks..

    get www.raamaudio.com

    a roll of that and a few yards of ensolite foam and a can of adhesive spray

    The deadener is there to help stop rattling and vibration. If the panels are still vibrating then you are losing sound. The foam ensolite helps block out road noise and keep the sound inside the car.

    I would go with at least 20sq ft. Two doors kits ftw, IMO it is worth buying the bulk kit and doing all 4 doors.

    i also have a Mazda3i sedan, 05. i used this stuff called "brownbread" for just my trunk. i dont have door rattling problems though. im currently packing a JL Audio 12W6V2 with a Kicker 400.1 amp. its quite loud, but no door rattling, strange that those with rattle, sure its not the window? my windows rattle when they are partially up
