i have an 81 c10 stepside pickup. im putting 2 10's in it and 2 6x9's in the doors. i was thinking of putting dynamat in the doors and on the floorboard underneath the carpet. i noticed that dynamat is really expensive and on ebay u can get some stuff thats almos the same, except 60 sq. ft is 70 bux? will that stuff work? and overall, is it worth it? thanks

Yes its worth it, you can also buy it locally at lowes or home depot, menards, etc.. its called peel n seal, it'l be in the roofing section.

i wouldnt spend the money on dynamat xtreme... there are other products that are just as good if not better. eDead, raamat, second skin, etc.... dynamat is the 'mainstream' product

i was thinking of picking up some edead of ebay, its cheap. u say that have it at home depot? is it pretty cheap? and how much sq ft. would u approx. need for 2 average sized doors assuming u did them up pretty good?

They don't sell edead at the depot, they sell peel and seal, its similar stuff though. Its around a buck a square foot. I would buy two rolls, use a roll on each door, theres no reason to skimp. A roll is about 12 sqft i believe.

Sweet, I was also looking into installing Dynamat in my car. Is Peel + Seel just as good though or is it just a cheaper alternative?

Just as good as regular dynamat, not quite extreme level, but for the cost its not really justifiable to pay for dynamat. They do the exact same thing, p&s just needs a few more layers sometimes.

There is also what is called Weatherguard at Menards which is same stuff(100sq ft. for like 80 bucks). Peel-n-seal does a really good job and is sticky as ****, so dont let someone tell u it will fall off after a few weeks or even a few months. I done the entire cabin of my car with p&s. Helped deepen the bass like crazy and a little with rattle.

dynamat works. some of the best stuff out there too...
Peel and seel works and you will find, but many peopl have problems with it.. many do not though so its up to you..
just do your research and see if it is somthing your are willing to do to save money..

the level of stickness a product has has nothing to do with how well it sticks...

does dynamat work?

nope. it does nothing. :( it just sits there being a lazy ***. :) :) :):)

...seriously though, I've yet to use it but from what I know, you'll be at least somewhat happy with the results. in other words, it can only be an improvement to use it.

I think he meant how sticky a product is doesn't guarantee it's sticking abilities in the long run?

in my bosses ford harley davidson edition truck we put 4 layers of foam matting in each door along with 3 layers of acumat on the back of the cab were all of the amps are mounted behind the seats, along with foam matting on the ceiling with 1/2 thick mdf in the headliner, to support the 15 inch screen with it.

he has 4 12 inch subs in a custom fiberglass box that takes up were the rear console was.

in the doors he has spektrum components (kinda like mb qaurts) they have one 6.5in mid and 2 1 in. tweeters in each door.

if you go to vegas this january you will see it there.

when putting this stuff on doors, do you do just the door skin, (outer sheet metal) or do you do the door "frame"(inside's) as well?

B@SSAN8OR

i did 2 layers on the inside of the door then 1 layer on the frame then 1 layer on the back of the plastic part of the door shell

do you need heat or rollers to apply PNS?

B@SSAN8OR
11-10-2004, 02:43 AM
i only used a heat gun on the plastic part for the acumat. i try and use materials that dont require heat, like the foam material we use and another type that doesnt require it

Wow dude, you seriously need to reduce the size of the pic in your sig :rolleyes:


And if doing your door, and you have speakers in your door, you want to use sound deadener on the "inner" door frame to seal off all the holes and such.

I was just saying that it will adhere to the surface very well and as long as u apply it correctly it wont come off. I done the entire inside of my borthers trunk with p&s with a roller, no heat gun, and the stuff still hasnt peeled off after about 4-5mo. same goes for my car. i had my trunk done in tsumami silencer and that crap started to peal off along time ago (done at circuit city by a trusted car audio friend) also before i knew how easy this stuff is to apply

Iv'e used dynamat in the trunk of my old car. I was surprised by the change. Most of the rattle was gone "hard to keep the frame from bending;)" And the bass was much cleaner, smoother as you would.

Rattles and what not are very anoying and take away from your overall SQ. So yes it does work. Makes the music louder and cleaner.

Just installed Fatmat in my montero. Just as good as dynamat.

Although this is a topic that is useful anytime, I will give you advice since you are a newbie. Try to stay away from two month old threads. If you didnt find the thread on the first 3 pages of threads, then dont comment on it.
