    yeah, dynamat is a complete joke. They charge eleventy-billion dollars for it and car stereo whores and bling-hounds actually pay it. Morons. At any rate, do a search... there are other materials that are 99% as good and cost 1/10th as much.

    I just ordered a couple of 32sq ft rolls from audioetcetra for 130.00 each. They normally cost about 250 each. Those two rolls should come pretty close to doing the inside of the Blazer.

    Look on eBay. Both dynamat and the knockoffs are much cheaper.

    and you still paid too much...

    This is the stuff I use:
    http://www.edesignaudio.com/category.php?type=damp

    The basic stuff, you would have paid $32... Heck for their top of the line stuff, you would have only paid $64. Dynamat is a HUGE rip off.


    Did all 4 doors on my Saturn, and the trunk and it made the car noticeably quieter inside and out. That was my main reason for doing it, so much road noise in that little piece of rubbermaid.

    Polymeric Mastic from McMaster-Carr...cheap, and it's basically the generic version of Dynamat.

    Another thing that works well for heat & noise are those Ensolite closed cell foam sleeping pads. I know of a couple rigs with the inside of their doors lined with the stuff. Those close like there some fancy high dollar car. Anal-retentive door alignment helps too.....

    Pretty certain hes the one who pointed me towards the E-Dead stuff from Elemental Design. Either that or he uses Polymetric Mastic.

    When I re-did my headliner, I used foam board insulation (had some left over in the shop) and a little construction adhesive to hold it on between the roof and the headliner. It made a big difference and would have cost about $10 for the whole roof in the Burb.
