    Sound Deadening: Dynamat VS Second Skin?

    im looking for some sound deadening material for my 03 VW Jetta. i wanna keep more sound in the car, get rid of interior rattles, and also i believe it also acts as a heat shield. i plan on doing just the doors. So i was looking at Dynamat Xtreme Door Kit, $50-$90 for 12 sq ft. then my good buddy Henry (aka GSteg) suggests Second Skin Damplifier, $66 for 50 sq ft. this seems like an amazing deal and so i was wondering how they compare to the other. thanks!

    Stick with the Damplifier and install multiple layers (two or more if you want).

    Or you could upgrade to DampX. Costs a little more, works that much better.

    Dynamat is just too expensive. They both work well, though.

    And drop that $66 for Damplifier down to $50

    Dynamat extreme is roughly 2-3 times as effective as the standard asphalt-based items on the market- so if a person is more concerned with weight in their vehicle, then the added cost may prove worthwhile to them...
