    Sound deadening

    Doing my doors this weekend, and had a question about the egg foam. There was none available in this town, and Wal-Mart only had some new stuff they carry. It's still similar material, does the shape of it matter that much? Also, how do I adhere it to the dynamat? Will the silicon I have bond to it, or do I need some kind of special glue?

    Oh, and the only non-hardening clay I could find was in sticks of rainbow colors...

    you could use Weather stripping foam tape instead of clay if you can mount it with bolts instead of screws. then you can really damped the MDF and keep a good seal.

    I don't thinkt he shape of foam matters much. I used ensolite foam from RAAMAT, it's super thin and is flat but has acoustical properties.

    That's my primary question. Do I need some automotive carpet spray, or can I just adhere it with silocone, or what?
