    I will be taking pics as I do it. I have seen pics online, and it seems to work well, for the cost. (Some) luxury cars have this foam from the factory.

    Good reading Thanks!

    I went with RAAMmat for the floors, backwall, rear doors and misc and the SecondSkin for the front doors. Now I just need time to do it!!!!

    Re: Proper Door Sound Deadening and You

    Has anyone tried this spray-on deadener from Cascade at Parts Express?

    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=268-250

    It only costs $16 per can, and it is supposed to cover at least one door per can. Granted, I have a 2 door with longer than normal doors, but this would be much much cheaper for me and I am on a strict budget. I just want some deadening to improve my midbass and not add a ton of weight. I would also be plugging up the holes in my door skin and adding a closed cell foam egg shell pad behind my speakers. Would it be worth it?

    Consider that you need about 3 to 4 cans to properly dampen a single door, it becomes less and less affordable.
    Go with full gallon and split it up between 2 doors. That would be better

I will agree, MDF as a spacer ring to replace the plastic rings in factory locations is a good thing, and while clay will isolate the speaker, why risk the mess when a simple foam gasket will do the trick for a solidly mounted speaker/spacer? Not to mention, no one here knows the rate at which the clay will deteriorate over time, if it does at all.

    }[/i]
    Can Anyone chime in on this? Should I just use foam as opposed to clay for reasons as stated by Sragan? I do agree with him as far as rate at which clay will deteriorate, esp during hot summers and open/closing doors often (clay shifting of sliding downwards).

    Maybe I missed it in the 20 pages of this thread, but those of you who have used this technique:

    what did you use to treat the MDF?

    Cause if it gets wet or collects to much moisture it will warp and crack.

    Thankx

    I never treated the MDF and I've had it in there for more than a year now and no signs of cracking or warping. Besides, couldn't treating it cause it to become resonant?

    I made my spacers out of high-density PVC that was 1" thick. I used roll deadener as a gasket between the spacer and the door.

    it was expensive (as compared to MDF) but it will never rot out.

    Re: Proper Door Sound Deadening and You

    I personally always use a weather proof spray paint and do 3-4 coats just for caution... i dont see many people treat their wood often but i personally do... In general i like to use the apliance epoxy spray paint... its like 5 bucks a can but i have only gone through two cans in about 7 years...

    Re: Proper Door Sound Deadening and You

    just started deadening my doors today. question for people in the know. im a plumber and we've got plumbers putty that we use to seal up sink drains, shower drains, and basically anything we want to prevent from leaking - ive swiped a few containers from my van to use on the mdf rings.

    the container says "keep away from strong oxidizers"
    --problem= im not a scientist.

    can i use this putty instead of clay?
