    Sound deadener review

    Ok you guys might own the Fatmat Mega Mat works great can be installed in any temp. Sticks like a SOB. It is almost impossible to get it off when it is stuck to metal, and forget it if you stick it to its self. That stuff is butyl. There is 3 different levels they sell.
  2. give them to the wifey and put the old ones back on.

    Help with subs, not hitting same time. <3

    have you made sure that the tinsel leads are not messed up on one of the subs. Assuming there dual inputs. Might also get a multi meter maybe one is a different ohm load. might also have one that is on its way out.

    want to buy BUTLER TUBE amp but HELP

    look into getting this: PXE-H660 - ALPINE IMPRINT SOUND PROCESSOR AUDIO SYSTEM | eBay or if you want control of it up front by your deck then look into this: JBL MS-8 DIGITAL SOUND PROCESSOR LOGIC 7 AUTO EQ DSP | eBay The first one is a little better IMO as it comes with a mic and allows best sound for your seat. If you are handy you can remove the control of the first one and solder in wires to move it up to the front location. That is what we did in my old car. I will see if I can find a pic of it when I get home. I had an older model wish I would have taken it out

    What exactly are you wanting to do? crossover the mids after the deck before the amp?

    Sound deadener review

    I wrote this on other sites but never posted it over here.
  7. I use these but replace the wing nut with a real nut: Ancor Marine Lead Battery Terminals Negative with 5/16" Post 385641 Or you can use these, but might be hard to get 1/0 in there. that is why I use the ones above.
  8. Review of:Sound deadener There is a lot of good info on here, but not much in the way of actual results. So here is the products that I have ran Dynamat Original, Dynamat extreme, Edead, Fatmat, Fatmat Xtreame, Fatmat Rattle trap XXX, Zilla mat, B-Quite, hushmat, and now Second Skin. Dynamat original is good but you have to it to get it to stick, but once in place it is good to go. I would not use this on roofs, or trunk lids, or doors, just on you floors. No mess at all with this stuff. Dynamat Extreme works great can be installed any temp sticks great. This stuff can be messy while installing, and will cut you up pretty good since the metal backing is so thin. Edead do not recommend this stuff is asphalt needs to be heated up to stick, and falls when it gets above 100 degrees outside. This stuff can be messy while installing.

This stuff can be messy while installing. This stuff can be messy while installing. This is the same stuff as Edead, maybe a little bit better quality in the foil, but that is it. Fatmat rattletrap XXX is ok but still do not recommend this. You will have to heat this up to get it to stick good, as it is half butyl and half asphalt. But, it holds up in 100 degree temp outside. But if it is above 100 degrees outside for long periods like 12 hours in the sun, it will start to sag in places. This stuff can be messy while installing.

This stuff can be messy while installing. Hushmat is good can be applied at any temp. Unlike most companies that bounce the sound back at you and can help gain you DBs on the microphone. This one does not increase your sound it actually absorbs sound. This stuff can be messy while installing. Second Skin works great and can be installed at any temp. This stuff sticks just as good as, if not better then the Fatmat extreme. The nice thing about this stuff is that it has easy clean up and no mess left behind. Plus it is thicker than any of the other mats that I have mentioned. In comparison to Dynamat it is about 1.5 times thicker, so 2 layers of this is like 3 layers of Dynamat. IMO, I would have to say that Second Skin takes the cake when it comes to sound damping material, for all bang for your dollar. I would have to say that Fatmat Mega Mat is in close second, with Dynamat Extreme tied for second, and in forth would be Dynamat original but only if used on floors. As for the rest mentioned please don’t waste your money to save a buck or two. Spend a little more and get something that works good the first time around. I know that there is a few that have not been mentioned, but I have not personally tried them. Right now I will only be using Second Skin in all future installs, as well as cars I do for someone else. I am tired of helping someone put in cheap product and to have them come back a month later saying I did something wrong, because it is now sagging down.

    Alpine 9887 Review

    Review of Head Unit: Brand: Apline Model: CDA-9887 Rating: I would give it a 5 out of 5 Pros: Ok, so I just go my new head unit put in and it has 10 times better sound output then my last deck a Clarion VRX755 (which is a DVD/CD player). I think some of it might be going from 2 volt preouts to 4 volt preouts. But, I figured that wouldn't matter since I was running (and still am running) a line driver. Cons: The only thing I see being a con is if you are not sure how panoramic and graphic EQ’s work it could be a problem, along with setting the time delay by ear. But they take care of that if you have the mic for the sound imprint feature. Other then that I would say there is no problems with it. Overall Opinion: I have never ran Alpine CD players before, but I now see what all the hype is about. For the last 7-10 years I have always ran Clarion. I mean don't get me wrong there easy to use, and last forever. Before that I was running Pioneers they worked great but every time you hit the 2 year mark the sound outputs would go out. Now I did have a Eclipse back in the day It was awesome till someone stole it, But I got the last laugh on that one since you had to have a correct CD to start it up and like after 5 wrong times it locked you out. Now I just can’t wait to figure out what I am going to do with my mids to take advantage of the sound imprint feature. The imprint is basically a mic that you hook up to your laptop and it goes in with a program and makes it the best sound possible for the driver and front passenger; using the time delay and sound processer, and EQ. Anyhow I would recommend the Alpine CDA-9887 to anyone that wants better sound quality.

    Does anyone know the value of this amp?

    I think they sell used for around $400 IIRC.

  12. How about Rainbows? You will have to spend more. But high end to me is like $800 and up for mids.
  13. I second test wires with a DMM, and check for missing fues's. Also, check to make sure your fuse is still good, with the DMM. I had one that looked good but was slightly broken could not see the crack in it without looking under a microscope. Took me a day to figure that one out.
