View Full Version : A real deadener review!

Ok so i gave audiotechnix a try after using secondskin,alphadamp,rammmatt,edead,fatmat
And i will say this without it being too long of a review. ITS THE SHEET!

First off i got the package and....well....it wasnt light

http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h467/tony30cl/at.jpg


I started on the rear panels/floor for now and noticed one thing that amazed me about this 60 mil deadenerr

it molded VERY well unlike second skin that was a PITA to put around corners and over humps

For cleaning the surface (which you must do for ANY deadener brand to stick) i use a little bit of ajax (look for it in the cleaning isle of wally-world) and wipe it down. I would use acetone or something simillar but i couldnt stant the smell, ajax does just as good.

I started laying it down when i noticed something else....once it sticks...it sticks for real! i used a roller on all of it. the side panels were a breeze since the deadener wouldnt move.


Sound wise i can play alot lower than i used too and the Heat from my muffler doesnt come in the car. sounds deeper more vibrant and less road noise. I live where road noise in any car exist but with the deadener it was less noticable.

With alot of other deadeners like fatmat and edead the aluminum would get torn by the roller where it was so thin. NOT A PROBLEM WITH AT!

Im still not done. I have the roof/doors/front floor left to do and i will update this accordingly. Also would like to add it only took 2 days to get to me. Impressive. Customer service is like burger king. Have it your way. He will bend over backwards for you and is the only man i have seen to stand by his product like he does. Nuff talking here are some pics. ill update later






had to take the seat out for me to fit in

Cool first impressions. Since you've tried a lot of other deadeners, can you share what you thought were good and bad about each with regard to performance rather than install? I know this is an AT thread, but it'll help some (like me) determine if AT is a better choice over others.

Its completely fine. To be completely honest the best deadener i used was second skin for deadenig. But After my first purchase the price turned me away from it. And audiotechnix does better IMO that the secondskin damp pro ever did

Fat mat was horrible it used asphalt based adheisive and smelt like peel n seal. **** moved and flexed the exact same as without it didnt lower my peak frequency any either like with most deadeners (thats what its supposed to do)

edead was ok but wouldnt stick at all where i needed it too and wouldnt mold for crap

alphadamp wouldnt mold or stick it was wayy too thick and wayy to heavy for using it on anything but a floor

murdermatt IMO isnt worth it the "90" mil was the same as AT's 80 mil in size and more expensive.

botom line AT or go home

Thanks a million. Only one I didn't see mentioned was Raam which I'm currently leaning towards since Rick likes to help us ca.com guys out.

Wait so Second Skin was your favorite but AT is better? Why would your favorite be an inferior product?

key word "was" You remember i used to rep the crap out of SS but it got too expensive and when AT switched manufactures his deadener IMO was better than SS in both price and performance. Thanks for pointing that out!

Good stuff bro. I ordered 40sq.ft. of the 60mil about a week ago, haven't got it yet. But I am overseas, it's normal. And customer service was great so far. On their website, they won't ship to APO addresses. I emailed him, he got back to me in a day, and he had no problem with sending me the deadener. The only other stuff I have used was Dynamat (got a deal locally), so I look forward to using it.

Raammat BXT II is nothing like Fatmat. It is great stuff and offers true damping. I would recommend and use BXT II at any time.

Raammat BXT is like Fatmat. Thin and less useful (better for seals than anything)

yeah but the amount in his picture suggest's that he is sponsored or a dealer.why would you send someone hundred's of cards and stickers,a banner? I could see 5 or 6 BUT to give away a banner in every purchase lol?

I'm with Stevew007.

HOWEVER, I do appreciate that the OP used a lot of "IMO" instead of trying to make it like its fact.

Also, BXT II is nothing like fatmat.

He requested a stack of cards so I included them. He he has placed several orders in the past and every time he gets his package he tells me there isn't enough business cards so I loaded him up this time.

Got the doors done. And found my alphadamp halfway hanging off. I wont post a pic because i do NOT want to deface another product.
Again molds very well. my doors are a pain and i did this in less than 2 hours both doors. it stuck to stuff i didnt clean and wont peel off. Which im surprised.
For the sound. Midbass is punchier and less muddy. Overall another win for audiotechnix
