Ask Rick at RaamAudio (http://www.raamaudio.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?p=co) and Anthony over at Second Skin (http://www.secondskinaudio.com/contact-information.php) to determine if either of them will ship overseas.


And please don't buy that cheap knock-off deadener from eBay. Read this (http://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com/) for some great info.

my entire car is coated in QuietCar from QuietSolutions in Sunnyvale, CA. its a night and day difference in sound quality and car quietness. doors absorb the vibrations from bass notes and it sounds more full...dunno how to describe it.

That's a brush-on liquid based deadener, correct?

yes it is. did 2-3 coats with about 20min of drying time between coats...then again it was about 70 degrees outside. it dried relatively fast and 1 gallon is alot for a small car. 1 gallon should be enough to do a small car's doors, trunk, and floors. hell the instructions suggested even putting this stuff on the inside of the hood to keep engine noise down. i did 2 doors at a time and when i drove on the freeway it sounded like my rear windows were open slightly (the rears werent coated yet).

I would look at Dynamat, Second Skin and Raamat products.IMO These are the only ones I trust. B-quite is also suppose to be very good have never used it personally. You can see if you can get lizardSkin it is also a very good liquid deadener.

Remember we all have products that we like. Some of what is on the market is complete garbage so remember that. Go with a trusted and proven product it will be money well spent.

The cheap knock-off deadener on ebay is exactly that a cheap knock-off. You pay for what you get when it comes to deadening products.

It make a world of difference with sound deadning. Less road noise in return more music to your ears: I just did mine on Saturday:

All I have are the picture for my front doors. I forgot my digi camera and I used my Treo 650 for these. I didn't have enough lighting for the rear cab of my Tacoma. I got those all done as well.

2 Dynamat front door kit and a trunk kit for the rear cab. I still have some left over. When I get my amps relocated I want to do under the seats.

Second Skin products are sold in the UK. Check over on Talkaudio.co.uk, there's A LOT of guys running SS products over there.

Also, you need to verify the materials used in that product. Both the quality of the mat and the thickness of integrity of the foil constraining layer will make it or break it in terms of value.

If that product is asphalt based, then look elsewhere. Even if it's butylene, it could be ok or just crap and you don't know till you try. Are you a risk taker??

i used v1se on my doors, about 25 sq ft. it worked very well. made the midbass really come alive. helped a lot with road noise as well. before i could only have my door speakers crossed at 80hz and not really boost anything in the 80-200hz range. now i have them crossed at 63hz and boosted +2 at 80hz and 125hz, and +1 at 200hz. it sounds sweet and i still have my stock speakers in. i plan to get some PG RSD's in the near future and give them about 125 watts per side.

here are some pics of the install....
