    Smile Dynamat install

    I recently had my interior Dynamatted in order to reduce ambient noise.

    Anyone else out there try ths?

    Nice results on overall noise reduction and I can't believe how it has livened up my Infinity Nav systems base / especially in the mid-range speakers located in doors as well as a cleaner sound overall.

    Got My Attention...

    Please provide details on your install - I (and probably many others) would be very interested to learn more about Dynamat (cost, installation requirements, DIY how-to, dealers, etc...).

    Thanks in advance,

    JC

    I'd rather be driving my car...

    Had local car stereo installer perform the work but you could do it yourself for $250 for door kit, $125 for trunk and $250 for floor pan (this last 1 may be less as the trunk kit cover has left over material that can be used on the floor so could get by for $500 and this would cover entire interior floor / interior wheel wells and trunk with this rubber based product that adheres to the interior parts thereby providing sound deadening qualities as a result).

    we did this on our car and it was amazing on the difference it makes. When it rained it use to be so loud with the road nois and now when it rains it is so quiet.

    Keep in mind, dynamat type materials are not the right material to deal with road noise. Dynamat works on a VERY narrow range of frequencies on the low end.

    Yup, covering a whole panel in dynamat has been myth busted. Check out the info athttp://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com/ You'll get the idea. I've done the whole mat only approach before on multiple cars with mediocre results. I wish I would have known about this approach sooner.

    I've done dynomat xtreme in many areas and then covered with sound absorption material when I can with decent results.
