Soundproofing

Post by ian65 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 6:23 pm

Anyone got any suugestions for a cost effective sound proffing material to go under the carpets in a 1st gen.
I'd like to use Dynamat but it's EXPENSIVE!
I've got the rear carpet and back seat out of my car and am thinking of replacing the thin foam and manky stuff Mazda put under the carpets and back seat with something newer and better.

Brown bread is the best stuff for audio installations, so I guess it would work well in this case too?

Other than that, I have seen some stuff in an aerosol - should be easy to apply at least :)

Not so sure about the brown bread..!

My mate just converted his t5 VW into a camper and spread plenty of stuff on the inside.

I did see some dynamat laying around but I know he got an alternative as well.

I'll hit him up about the brand and if it was any good to work with and let you know.

Ever tried ordinary carpet underlay?

I had some "cloud 9" lying about so I fitted it (fairly carefully, with scissors...) to cover the boot floor and under the back seat of Miss January - works quite well (and was free...) and you can't see it with the carpet back in place.

Well, precisely that's something I've be looking at recently. Some folks at another forum have recommended to go with Damplifier Pro.

I believe quality it's better than Dynamat.... Again, it's not cheap but it's worthed. I'll cover it all. Firewall, floor, hatch, roof, side panels and doors.

Take a look at it.

Let me know what you think.

I seem to remember a few forums recommending Damplifier Pro when I looked it up a while back aye. I have no experience with any sound deadening products though, so I can't really say much more :lol:

Do you or anyone else have an idea how how many square feet would be good to cover our cars with? Are you supposed to cover the whole area or just certain points with this type of product? Are you planning to get their Luxury Liner Pro also?
