    Sound Deadener Showdown - Your Source for Sound Deadening Products and Information

    good MLV for cheap from him as his cld tiles

    if not go with audiotechnix on the forum here and he will make you a good deal. If you dont like his offer check raamaudio.com. i love that deadner. smells for a couple hours then dissapates nicely.

    SS and SDS are the only two products I would use. Two layers is a waste of material. If you go to SDS website there is plenty of information regarding the science behind it.

    ^ This. I've used AudioTechnix with terrific results. But two layers is a waste of your money. Do one layer, then do a layer of MLV barrier and you'll be amazing.

    I just want to chime in and confirm what the others said. Two layers is a waste of money when trying to stop resonance. You're better off using a better quality deadener and using less of it. If you want to add strength to panels, brace them and then deaden over that. As far as cutting down outside noise, MLV is the way to go. Talk to Don S. at sounddeanershowdown and he'll set you up.



    I haven't found the perfect stereo yet, but I'll keep searching!
    I have lots of references, but not on this site - contact me to ask about them.
