    Sound deadening guide?

    Does anyone know of a good sound deadening guide for a car? I know there are a lot of different brands and price ranges when it comes to the stuff. Also, wondering about placement, materials that shouldn't have deadening attached to them, etc.

    http://www.b-quiet.com/ has a lot of stuff on it if I remember correctly.

    I got the brown bread from them some time ago and it was awesome. I'm going to order some more for the new ride as well.

    I can tell you anything you need to know.

    And btw, never buy Dynamat.

    Get Peal & Seal, much cheaper

    Peal & Seal = home depot. Its actually designed for roofing, but from what ive seen, works decently and is dirt cheap. and I knew dynamat was way over priced. Ill check out the link. Also, seal and peal not withstanding, whats the cheapest place to get real sound deadening materials?

    Yeah I've seen an install using Peel & Seal from Home Depot but I don't know how it compares with the other products, besides being really cheap.

    I read somewhere that there is a place to get a product just like Dynamat for a lot cheaper. Supposedly Dynamat buys this product (if they run out of stock) and stamps their logo on it. Hmmm I can't fnd the link now though. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    This site may be of some interest too:

    I would stay away from peel and seal. Its not thick enough and i dont think its got the sound absorbing qualities you need.

    For killing road noise use closed cell foam (carpet padding). It transfers noise into low-level heat. Use the foam in combination with some type of deading material. Ive heard good stuff about raammat. Search the elitecaraudio.com forum for "closed cell foam" "rammaat" and whatever else. Theres a lot of good info there. Search wangmat and you come up with a really funny thread about trying to name a cheap deadener from home depot.
