only worth it if you barley stick it on so you can peel it off and reuse it. O.o

Don't go with dynamat though unless ur rich and have money to blow. There are other great products out there. Try stinger or I used audiotechnix for mine and it was great but I don't think he sells it anymore

if your on the cheaps, fatmat or stinger roadkill. If you want good stuff, get second skin or SDS's CLD

Yes it's great and still need 2 more of the 3 packs to fill my whole car without going cheap. Nothing is cheap with car audio, if it is cheap it will sound cheap.

its in the roofing section. comes in rolls of 25' and only $14-$16 each. may need to double up for the thickness of dynamat but at the lower cost, who cares about doubling or even more.

DO NOT USE PEEL AND SEAL. Check out the deadener comparison on DIYMA if you want. Fatmat and peel and seal are the same thing and did almost nothing.

SDS tiles (Welcome to Sound Deadener Showdown | Sound Deadener Showdown (http://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com)) and KnuKonceptz Kolossus performed the best.

the choice is up to the user and what they get out of it. reading the link provided me no more knowledge of what company is the best or the worst. i didn't see dynamat, hushmat, knuknocepts, peel and seal, stinger roadkill, and any others names in the link you provided. i also do not know of many panels in cars that are just hanging by one wire and loose. i have done work on many cars with a bunch of different types of peel and seal materials. they are all peel and seal materials. some are thicker than others but are the same materials. some even require heat to apply them. its all in how they are applied. i have pulled many pieces of deading materials off of doors and trunks because of $hitty installs.

I wouldn't use peal and seal in hight temps areas...I wouldn't even use it at all.... Roadkill.. 100 bucks shipped @ amazon..

roadkill is probably the last thing i would use as it falls off like the original dynamat. roadkill and original dynamat are the most i have taken off cars because they are garbage. see its all in a persons application.....stinger roadkill is the biggest waste of money(peel off the backing and stick to where you want it to go) Peel and seal. spend it on dynamat or hushmat. it depends on where it is going in the vechicle. it has been on the roof of my personal car for the last 8 years and i live in HOT AS HELL ARIZONA. not one mm has fell or has come loose. dont know how much higher temp area you can get. its parked outside all day and night too. no garage or carport or shade.

Roadkill is the best budget deadener, i use knu kolossus and its the best one ive used....roofing material is for roofing and is the worst for your car as are all other asphalt based materials as they smell abd dont hold up over time even with proper installation

Asphalt base has more unrefined crude oil content, I wonder how it reacts to arching, sparks or a lit joint accidentally dropped?

Asphalt doesn't offer the same deadening properties as high quality butyl. It's crap. Knu Kolossus, SDS CLD, or STP Atlantic Gold are all great products and not all that expensive.

BoomTaco64 ; read this and then try and tell me with a straight face that you would recommend peel n seal. It's made for roofing, not deadening.

That stuff looks really similar to the STP Atlantic products, which performed well. We can't tell for sure without testing, though.

I got some in my doors and roof no issue. Installed it about 4 years ago maybe cuz i only have a 500watt amp.

Roadkill didn't perform nearly as well as Knu, but it's still decent deadener for the price.

I ran the Stinger expert and it's not bad the KnuKonceptz is some nice stuff though I have to agree.
