I need some info on deadners. RAAMmat, Second Skin, E Dead, the list goes on. Well which is better and why? Is there any that I should stay away from?
Has anyone tried this spray-on deadener from Cascade at Parts Express?
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?
Go with full gallon and split it up between 2 doors. That would be better

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.

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...
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?
