Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

I've tried some foam and it was pretty marginal. You could scuff up the edge a bit with a scotchbrite, then hit that edge with some clear silicone sealant. Let it dry, throw it on. Now it has the soft edge on the metal.
Look for videos on youtube from Hexibase. He has done a lot of cabin prep in his Grand Vitara.

Not the Second Skin product. I'm pretty sure you can apply it in almost any temperature. I've applied it in the winter months with no problem. Still sticks really well.

For those who have "matted" the doors, when you do them, what do you do about the plastic lining? Do you just re-epoxy them to the doors over the mat? Kind of lost with this.

Apparently its not re-used when "dynamatting" (sound deadening) you door. Check this out and anyone doing their doors, here is a nice guide too :

Hmmm... interesting, but doesn't it seem like a waste of material though? I mean the whole reason for putting it on the door is to reduce/stop the vibration of the metal... So if it's just hanging around not attatched to anything, seems like those pieces could be put to better use... Just my two cents (though they might not be worth that much)

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

You know, I was told by the guy at RAAM Audio/MAT, that you don't have to cover the entire door. Mostly cover the access holes. And put some mat on the inside of the door where the biggest part of loose metal is. But I noticed when I covered my doors that the Scion has some sound deadening on the door panels, so I just put strips that over lapped the factory stuff. Then covered the access holes on the door and covered the whole door with a foam mat also from RAAM Audio. Let's just say I spent less than two hundred dollars on everything and covered all five doors and the roof, what a huge difference. Sounds almost as quiet as my Lexus. I still need to do the floor, but don't wanna go through taking out all the seats and stuff yet until I decide what I am going to do about adding another amp for my mids and tweets.

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

Phat, its pretty easy to do the floors and the seats come out pretty easy (just make sure you disconnect batt. at least 15 mins, for airbag sensors, etc.). There is some thick stryfoam on the floor in certain places (LOL). I only did parts of my floor cos I ran out - gonna finish it in the summer probably. Oh and YES, what a BIG difference!!!

I don't have a system installed yet but I plan on matting every where just to reduce noise from the road. Of course it will help with the system later.

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

I have Raam Audio mat on my rear door and plan to do the rest of the car. It does sound better but running DD M3A tends to negate any deadening. My truck still rattles.

There's no need to cover your vehicle top to bottom with dampening material, actually doing that can give you negative effects,

Check out sounddeadenershowdown.com he goes into the topic deeper and makes awesome stuff. I'm getting some of his tiles to place around strategically.

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

I did the entire roof doors paneling etc.. Basically anywhere that I could get this in I did it.. It worked extremely well and I would definately recommend it to anyone..

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

Make sure you buy the lightweight stuff and it would be a good idea to use some adhesive as warm weather can make the sheets fall off, maybe use a spray instead.

Misleading to an extent sir. Many vehicles have had multiple layers of the material applied - there is no real lightweight or heavyweight stuff and the thicker the better when it comes to doing this. Also, good quality soundproofing / dampening material is made to withstand extreme temperatures IF applied correctly. ALWAYS clean the area thoroughly before applying and make sure you apply it as per the instructions, which is usually a roller and apply adequate pressure.

This procedure has never let me down in the last 20 or so years

---------- Post added 07-12-2012 at 03:13 PM ----------

The thicker the better to an extent btw, I found on extreme spl vehicles pushing over 150dB's that 3 layers is enough sometimes....

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

I have done the doors and hatch in RaaMmat. It deadened outside noise and when you shut the doors it gives a thunk like the European cars do.

It did not deaden the road noise because I have not done the floor yet. Driving around on certain road surfaces (especially concrete roads) most of the noise comes from around the area where the pedals are at. Looked around that area and sure enough there is no sound deadner at all.

Thinking I'll just peel the carpet back as much as I can without removing the seats and insulate those areas.

Re: Has anyone "dynamatted" their roof ??

You should also look at doing something with the wheel wells in front l there is a bunch of road noise that comes from there, I did a redo of full sound deadening floors, roof, spare tire , quarter panels and I still have noise coming from the front. I am planning to take the plastic fender liners out on front and spay them with some rubberized undercoating and see what that does. I kind of did that once before on my original white XB and I noticed a slight difference.
