    Icon32 How much dynamat do I need???

    I probably won't buy dynamat cause it's WAY to expensive, but you get the idea. How much sound deadening material would I need in a '98 Grand Am 2 door to make a difference?? I would like better sound quality and less road noise. I was thinking of getting 50 sq. ft. Will that do or should I purchase more?? Or, is there any alternatives besides these expensive materials?? ie. dynamat, brown bread, edead, b-quiet.

    go with second skin, you can get it from ifandorbuts, and 50ft. should probably work. u can put it on the floor, the doors, and the trunk. if u need more, u can always just order a lil more, but 50ft. should be fine.

    Depends on where you plan on putting it. Brown Bread is the best stuff I've used. There are two factors that determine the effectiveness of deadening: weight and the ability to turn vibrations into heat. Dynamat Extreme does this well, but it costs an arm and two legs. Brown Bread does this to a certain extent as well. 50 sq feet in your trunk or hatch should do you well. A good investment anyway you look at it.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Advice: When dynamatting, take your time. I rushed toward the end, and now I have interior parts that aren't put together quite right and rattle. Now I have to rip it all apart agian.



    New and Improved system:
    JL12W7
    Alpine 7893
    JL 500/1
    Big *** Vented Box.
    Eclipse 4'' 2 ways

    All adding up to a new bigger number...can't wait for the new season.
