    Sound Deadener Help (Liquid/Mat)

    I have aftermarket exhaust and want to keep the noise out of the car while keeping the music in. I don't really have rattling problems, just road/exhaust noise. I'm interested in a liquid deadener because I think it will be easier to apply but want what works best.

    I was thinking of ordering 2-3 gallons of Spectrum v.2 but need some guidance.

    i have used spectrum v1 in my car. the stuff works great. but i dont think 3 gallons will be enough to keep the exhaust noise out of your car. i have used 2 gallons and a 40sqft of damplifier pro and well its not enough to cover the whole car. 2 gallons did my trunk iny the walls where my rear seats go. i think you will need about 5 gallons if not more as there are so many places for noise to get into your vehicle. my hatch it set pretty good although im going to add some vinal lyner to it to top it off. but now all the noise comes form my door pannels. and i can hear it through my floor board. so that will have to come in a little bit. spectrum is a very good choice for liquid sound deadner. when i called and talked to anthoney he said that it was probably the best liquid stuff out there although its not as good as other sound deadners like say dynomat extreme but in just the liquid catagory its probably the best and he seems like a good guy and i trust him. so to sum up spectrum is a great choice but youll need more than 3 gallons. try 5 at first. if thats not enough you can always order more. and im not sure about with the v2 but for the v1 they gave you like $25 off for ordering 5 gallons. just call and talked to anthoney. they also make other stuff as im sure you know that is designed for exhaust noise and things like that. and all of their stuff is really easy to use this is my first time ever using sound deadoning products and its pretty easy.

    P.s hurry up and buy a bunch so they can hit 50 gallons sold so i can get mine! j/k

    If you are less worried about vibrations and more worried about keeping sound in/out, look for barrier loading deadener instead of mass loading. Barrier loading is usually foam or vinyl covered.

    Re: Sound Deadener Help (Liquid/Mat)

    So to keep in/out sound I need a foam type product? Would the egg crate stuff you see in homes on the wall to reflect sound work ok?

    My last car I actually had about 35lbs of pollyfill stuffed in the panels to keep the rattles down, would that also work for road noise?

    While money isn't a major concern, I don't want to just be paying for a name if something I can get at Wal-Mart will work just as good.
