I'm sure the audio guys will all say yes. As a minimum, I'd at least say that you'd want it in your doors and any trunk/hatch areas that might rattle. It also depends on what you want out of your system. If you're a guy that thinks an amp and two 12s is a hot stereo set up, then you probably won't care. If you really like to "listen" to your music, then it's probably for you.

And that stuff is supposed to be a lot lighter than the original dynamat. You must have that stuff wrapped around your axles.

Some is the older Super product that Dynamat no longer makes and I also have some Dynaliner Extreme that is neoprene, lead, and foam.

That's pretty good. Those bulk kits were like $249 @ car toys when I went in to get some wires the other day.

in the world of liners there are different products for different applications. What about temperature insulation?

Is Dynamat the best for creating temperature barriers? I would like to keep the heat from the road, the roof, and the firewall out of the cabin. Somone was telling me that the best temperature insulation was a double sided foil product that reflects heat (or cool) both ways. I have heard of this in home products but not for auto use. Anyone been there, done that?

Dynamat makes many different products. The Xtreme has an aluminum layer to help block heat but the TAC MAT has an R factor and is better insulation. I would use both.

Dynamat. They make lots of different products. Most copy cat companies try to compare their product to Original Dynamat which is an old, heavy, asphalt based product that requires heat to install and stinks for two weeks after install. Awesome twenty years ago but out dated now. We haven't offered it for years. Consumers don't do enough research and think roofing tar or other crap works as well and functions the same but they are wrong. Different products are for different applications. There is not one product to reduce all frequencies. I would cover the entire car interior in Dynamat Xtreme and then use Dynaliner, Tac Mat, etc on top of the Xtreme.

I used it in my old Talon, one box of the Dynamat extreme. Mainly to stop the finish panel and decklid from rattling. It helped out quite a bit!

There are always less effective alternatives. One reason fatmat is cheaper is that you get over 50% less material by weight.

I'm sure you're right EW.

It's just that 100 square feet of Dynamat was $750 (retail) and about $130 for Fatmat (mailorder).
I had to cut costs somewhere or do without :-(

What do you use on the roof?
I noticed the Mustang's roof is really noisy in the rain!

BTW...
EW rocks!

Dynamat Xtreme and Dynaliner max or Tacmat.
The Xtreme product will not fall down from the heat. Some other products will have adhesive failure under Texas summer heat.

Peel and seal!
It is asphault, foil and adhesive. FAR cheaper than dynamat.

Asphalt stinks when installed, weighs more than Dynamat Xtreme, is 4 times less effective, and probably requires heat to install. OLD SCHOOL.
