Dynamat really worth it?

I've been wondering this for a long time. Especially now that I have my rear seats out, I never realized how much they muffle sound coming from the trunk.

Does it add a bunch of weight to a car? How much would be required for a typical 'Stang and what kind of costs are we looking at?

Worth every penny IMO. The Dynamat Extreme is their most effective, lightest weight product. You should check out Ron's car. He covered everything.
You know who to call for the hook up.

Hell ya, back when I had dumps, my back doors rattled like a mo-fo, now with pipes it is quite solid. My floors, trunk, and front doors need to be done.

It depends on what kind of dynomat you want.
I know thay charke you out the ass for the thick shit 1 square foot at a time.
They have ones that are already made up for your front and rear speakers and they are kinda cheap.

I used the spray on shit for a stereo comp car I had and took everything out I used about 10 cans for the whole car and they are about 40 bucks a can. I took out all the factory insulation and replaced it the dynamat and it reduced the weight of the car by about 75 pounds. After I sprayed the whole car I couldnt hear any road noise at all just the sound of my bass mobile.

You can can go to www.dynamat.com and the stuff is actually called dynashield. Or you can go to crutchfield.com and type in dynamat under the search.

Thanks, didn't realize you were talking about a Dynamat product. I'll check it out.

You can use the duplicoat roll on bedliner.
I have used it on a couple cars and it seemed to help
alot, also only about 50 bux for a gallon.

You can also use Ice Sheeting. It is used by roofers.
Almost the same exact shit as dynamat but is only about $75 for a 100'x3' roll of it.

ive allways wondered, what makes this material so good/wonderful. Cant their be a simialr alternative that cost's less, and kills the sound. I'd love to do it in my cars too, but its allways cost too much for what looks like something that was conjured up in a fabric store one day

No Dynamat product looks like, or is fabric. Some are open and closed cell foam (Dynaliner, Hoodliner. Dynaliner Max).
If you want a quiet car (inside) then Dynamat is great.
