Raamat

Has any body used raamat? I have been thinking about doing the doors and behind the backseat in my 2007 Tacoma double cab. I want to keep down road noise because I have mud tires and I want better acoustics I figured I would do these parts because that will be where speakers will be. How many feet would I need to do this?

His name is Rick.

And his service is top notch. More importantly the Raammat and Ensolite he sells is fantastic.

I did both door panels (I have a 1st gen extra cab), strategic places in the rear quarter panel and the entire rear wall and it did help a lot in cutting down the road noise. More importantly the front speakers sound amazing now.

He has detailed step-by-step instructions on where and how much material to place. Call him and he'll even talk you through your 2nd gen for you.

This is the package I bought: http://www.raamaudio.com/package-1-2...-41-625-sq-ft/

I still have a sheet or two of the raammat and some of the ensolite left over. I'll need to order more of the mat eventually because I'm going to put a subwoofer in the rear cubby.

After shipping and the TW discount it came to $130 or so. And it showed up at my door two days later.

i used the 1.5 basic plus kit of raamat and ensolite on my double cab.
did not know about the discount offered for TW, but it was still very affordable.

(everything mentioned is just raamat, i had enough ensolite to cover all of the raamat with some left over)

double layered back wall
Floor/cubby area under rear seat
Floor under Front seats (not much is needed as theres factory deadening)
Floor under where your feet are at
Front doors: outter skin fully, inner skin fully
Rear Doors: Outer skin fully, inner skin 1/2 coverage(no speakers in the rear doors, didnt need much)

basically the only thing not covered is the roof, and if i had covered the roof, i would just cover portions as to just dampen vibrations

Well I've got mud tires so to start with I want to really cut down on road noise plus up my acoustics and cut down on as much rattling as possible.

I don't know how well the advice I received translates to a 2nd gen but doing the floor and head liner in raamat yields very little gain for the money/effort.

If you really want to go to higher levels than "what's good enough for most people" then go with a mass loaded vinyl material for the floor.
