More dynamat

lol should say more dynamat

So i orignally dynamatted my trunk usesing the dynamat trunk kit. It worked pretty good for having an l7 blaring all the time, but i kinda just got fed up with stuff still rattleing so i just got another 35 square feet of dynamat extreme. So today i put another 5 square feet across the trunk lid, Then totally covered the metal where the rear speakers sit, top and bottom. Tomorrow im tackling the doors and maybe finish up the trunk.

But WOW! what a difference putting more MAT on by the rear speakers, i cant explain how great the system sounds now. I get no rattles from loud music, that board use to bounce up and down like no tomorrow, not one thing shakes back there now, not even the child seatbelt hook thingys. and as for the trunk lid...=\ if i have my rock music playing at my usual volume(VERY loud) it doesnt rattle one bit, but if i crank up some NWA or other rap music and turn the bass up a little bit, the mat does nothing really. the spoiler shakes and rattles and sounds like a bee hive outside my car. But i dont mind it too much, from inside the balt sounds like a music stuido, and from the outside everythings cool and rattle free unless its that rap crap.....

Also one thing i did was put a small piece of dynamat extreme on the metal that the rear view mirror slides onto. Bam the thing barly moves now with the bass. ITs incredible what Dynamat could do. But for anyone that wants to get rid of any inside car rattles, put some Dynamat underneath the back panal where the rear speakers are, best thing you could do. And also stay away from fatmat and that other stuff. Dynamat really is much better and its not that expensive, just gotta get it from the right place. Best Buy's price is 171$ for the trunk kit, where as amazon.com is like 50.

My trunk is completely done up (when I get home from delpoyment I'll post pics). I used both regular Dynamat and Dynamat Extreme and I feel the same results as you. The car has never sounded better. So clean and smooth sounding. Dynamat saves the day again!

'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.

Yeah your right, dynamat is insanlly heavy, 32 square feet was like 60 pounds! and i put like 80 square feet in my car. It is heavy, but im not into the racing type. More into the sound quality and luxary type ride. At least for now, but i will say my next balt(hopefully '08 turbo) is not going to be lined with dynamat.
