For the best performing stuff, check out Secondskin. Anthony is a great guy to work with there. He's a regular on DIYMA.

For an economical and slightly messier solution, go with RAAMmat from RAAMaudio. Rick is a nice guy to work with there, too.

If you enjoy wasting money, stick with Dynamat. :)

Also, you probably should check out this website http://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com as it will give you the truth about what you need to do to properly deaden a car. You need to know that CLD mat isn't the whole story, so don't just buy that and be done with it. Do the trifecta of MLV, CCF, and CLD and you'll be all set. And all those acronyms will be explained in great detail, so it will all make sense.

I had 36 sq ft and it did inner/outer skin of both front doors, minimal amounts in the back doors (around the speaker cutout and behind the speaker, maybe 2 sq ft per door), both rear quarter panels and the rear hatch. I would say if you are going to do inner and outer skin on the rears too you would need a total of about 45-50 sq ft. It also depends on how heavy you are goin to lay it on, I did not really follow the 25% rule :shrug:

For the record I will be going back to put in the foam at a yet to be determined date in the future :angel:

there was a guy in a caviler outside walmart tonight. that guy needed some sound deadening. his music sounded like absolute garbage. i though his car was literally rattling apart. we used to spray the trucks with mono foam, the stuff used for insulating barns and such. and you HAVE TO RUBBER MOUNT YOUR LICENSE PLATE!!!!!! the license plate is a big pet peeve of mine LoL.

i used dynamat on my festiva with slightly good results and was referred to quiet coat on the festiva forums. Big difference and i just sprayed it on directly on the dynamat. 2 gallons goes a long way and with a spray gun i did my hood and undercarriage and wheel wells and reduced interior noise by 6DB. Engine noise was even quieter then a honda civic. A festiva quieter then a honda civic thats crazy. its used by jaguar to save weight and reduce cost. Try it you wont regret it.
