Sound Dampening “alternatives”

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here experimenting with using alternative (cheap) sound deadening material, such as peel and seal, frost king, u-seal, etc?

 

I do have several square feet of Dynamat, but I just can’t see how this stuff would not be great additional back up...

too many freq at once, burn the coil, we all know, over 40-50hz, its all coilburning material.

Other than perhaps not being ideal to mounting in a vehicle, From a physics perspective, this is massloading just like any other material would be as far as decreasing resonance/vibration.

It stinks, It doesn't stick, the foil is to thin, it *****. Trust me I tried this stuff like 9 years ago when it got popular.. Not worth it one bit.

2 Rockford p3 12s (dual 2 ohm)

Pioneer AVH-2300NEX

2 PPI PC275's running 1 sub each atm, waiting to put the SQ 2200.1 back in and add the PhoenixGold Elite.4 once my electrical is up to snuff

Rear speakers: stock

I just added 5 SoundQubed stickers, and despite having no equipment upgrades, it added 76 DB!!!

Peal and seal is garbage. Im not a huge fan of fatmat either.

I did not. I think Stinger Roadkill is the best bang for buck. My buddy swears by the NVX deadener as well.

I have reconsidered my thoughts and it is worth waiting to do this properly with the best available so I will be going with the 250mil GP Car Audio deadener

Good idea!

I was in your shoes a few moths ago when I was planning this build, I watched some YouTube vid and came to the conclusion that it wasn't worth the trouble to go cheap, and who wants their ride to smell like roofing tar?

 

I ordered the suv kit of sound mat when I bought my amp and subs from soundqubed. (I decided to not be cheap)

I've done the doors so far and it's .......just WOW!!!! 100% improvement. Door speakers sound a lot better, Think I picked up more volume, and ride noise is down.

 

I'll do the rest of my truck on warm days when I have extra time.

Cost more than I wanted to spend but it is totally worth it and if I have a next build the sound mat will be part of build from the start.

it's very good, just heat it a little and it goes right up and conforms well..

Even the seeming “proponents” of the cheap hardware store material, tend to agree...

 

The cheap stuff takes so many layers and so much labor, that premium material is the best choice in the end.

Yeah after going back and forth I went with this stuff myself. It is a bit more pricey but I want to do it once and be done with it for good.
