Got tired of everything rattling with my MTX 12" sub. All the dynamat was bought from circuit city. Used original on the bottom, premium on the sides, and super dynamat on the top. Also did the rear deck, the side walls of the back seat, and behind the license plate. No more rattling.

That stuff's made of an asphalt like stuff. Its really heavy even by the square foot. The density is what makes it soundproof.

100lbs? No way. I looked it up and it's the Dynamat Trunk Kit $75 (#DY19105) and the shipping weight is 15 lbs, so without the weight of the box they send it in, it'll be about 10-12lbs. Worth it, since it quiets the vibration and even the exhaust noise alittle.

Here's the link to order it. 20 sq. ft of it and if you click on "add to basket" it'll show you the weight is 15 lbs. Again, mine was bought at circuit city.

He didn't say it was asphalt thick.

That's some good stuff there.....I just don't know that I have the patience to do it right now.....maybe in the summer.

Hey 5Gen_Prelude, thanks for posting them up. Wasn't sure how to do it without the size being so huge.
I also purchased a heatgun and wooden roller from Home Depot since my blow dryer wasn't really getting it hot. It'll be very hot but it'll ensure the stuff doesn't peel off.

Paid $25 for the heat gun and $2 for the roller. I also put some dynamat on the side walls next to the backseats and on the rear deck. It was a pain since you had to remove the backseat, deck cover, and plastic side panels. Didn't put any around the front door speakers since I ran out of the stuff. It doesn't vibrate that much up front, mostly my subwoofer was shaking everything in the back.

well i work and circuit city and that extreme dynimate is the lightest and best one that there is. its alot light but pretty good to boot. man i once dynimated a 2k1 mazda miata. that thing was so much heavier like all over the doors and stuff. I stuck a whole sheet on the inside of the door on the outer panel and did the inside of the door panel too. Wow i didnt hear a difference but oh well. As for the rattling i got some nice woofers and my trunk rattles but i sit inside and cat hear it so oh well.

i just did tons of research on this stuff. im planning to put dyna super in the trunk. dyna Xtreame on the doors. followed by dynalining in the trunk again and on the floor below carpeting (since i dont think dynalining has a sticking surface). probaby do dyna super on the back seat areas that i can access after taking off stuff. finishing of by that dyno spray stuff on the parts i didnt get including the wheel wells.

haha! now im gona be driving in the quietness of a lexus baby! hope i can still hear the sirens of cops and fire trucks

I worked at the south store (mopac & 290). But it was 3 years ago. Really don't know anyone that works there except for eddie the store manager and mike in video.

Looks like you did a pretty nice job of installing it! Looks very professional! =) Though for everyone that doesn't WANT to spend the preimum price for dynamat you can go though McMaster Carr (I actually have 2 rolls for anyone in the bay area to sell at really cheap since I ended up with extra) and it's the exact same stuff as original dynamat at like 1/2 the price.
