    I was thinking about Dynamatting the whole interior of my K5 and was wondering how many of you ppl did it and was it worth the cost, cuz I can barely hear Sh** over the tires and exhaust, its like with the windows down and trying to carry on a conversation is like yelling...

    Your Input on this is welcomed.

    I have no carpet, headliner, or side panels. The only thing left is seats, dash, and door panels. I'm also running a soft top. Just turn the volume up more. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    It definately helps to reduce rattles and conducted noise. I would say go for it as long as you already have stuff torn apart. Try to get it behind the dash as well. I would buy an off-brand ashpalt lining, though since Dynamat brand is overpriced. For larger areas, you should look into some vinyl-based sound stopper. Try some of these places:
    Silent Source
    Sound Proof Foam
    Control Noise

    The problem is that the better noise absorbtion you get, the more it will weigh.

    look for "polymeric mastic" at www.mcmaster.com

    You can also search for it in the audio section here.
