    Just wondering if there is any other type of product out there that I could get at Home Depot or Lowes that would do the same thing as Dynamat, Ramatt etc etc, withoug having to pay over $100.00? There has to be something out there? Anyone usinging any common material to sound proof there truck?


    on a side note...anyone getting a rattle from the passengers side sliding seat belt unit?

    you get what you pay for bro...

    seriously...the best bang for you buck is going to be RAAMAT hand down. Give Rick a call he's the owner and designer or raamat and ensolite...he'll definitely hook you up...

    raamaudio.com

    i've got my '06 Tacoma completely sound deadened through the whole truck with raamat and ensolite...its awesome stuff...

    dynamat is highly overpriced...

    is it hard to install...anyone have any pics or a writeup?

    Does the Ramatt have a sticky back?

    i think one of the major differences is the heat tolerance... stuff made for the car stands up to the up and down heat changes

    My passenger seatbelt rattles all the time as well - well it used to...

    I took some velcro (only used the softer of the two sides) and placed in on the back of the seat belt. now when it bumps into the plastic side wall of the truck, the velcro absorbs the blow, deadening 80-90% of this annoyance.

    hope it helps.

    Great idea with the seat belt!

    Mine makes that noise too. but it also seems to be coming from inside the actual chest belt height adjuster on the door.....any one else have this.....was thinking about dynamat back behind there to solve this...


    anyone have install pics for dynamatt?

    the install isn't hard at all its just extremely time consuming...if your like me and went all out by sound deadening the whole cab you will have to remove all the door panels, roof, seats, rear firewall, carpet...and some other stuff...

    here's pics of my buddies truck...I didn't take any of mine cause I wanted to get done...lol

    I don't think i'd be able to put my truck back together after that....let alone take it apart.

    I was able to get the door pannels off to do the leather arm rest mod

    its not hard to keep track of all the bolts and screws and where they go...

    this is how I do it...

    when removing any parts whether interior, exterior, and even engine components I take things apart 1 side at a time and have all the bolts and screws in size all together in direct line of site of that part that it came from...that way when putting everything back in reverse order you have everything directly in front of you and its almost full proof...:D

    Not sure what you are referring to with the home depot foam, but I would skip foam. Look in the roofing section. I read somewhere maybe here or another av forum that the original design for what is known as sound deadning material came from using some sort of roofing material. If you do find something in Depot roofing department let us know and take some pics.

    I personally used raammat, I bought a roll of "b" grade from him because he was out of stock on the other stuff. It was super cheap, like $120 for a huge roll. I did all 4 doors both inside and out and have a ton left over, at least enough to do the back wall when I tear into that.

    i hate thread jacking...but...


    does anyone know how much sound deadening (dynamat style) you would need to do a double cab? rough estimate will do. really want to do the back board behind the rear seat,floor board, and the 4 door panels. roof would be nice, but not completely necessary.

    thanks in advance

    as far as the foam that's what the ensolite is for...

    the raamat BXT II: 37.5 sq per box flat pack box, just a bit more than our competitors "comparable" products.

    40% denser than BXT, (engineered to go up against the top brand mats on the market. )

    4 mil soft aluminum finish (softer aluminum to help prevent cuts while installing unlike some brands;)

    250 degree temp rating (any higher rating is a moot point, the vehicle would already be on fire so we shoot for realistic numbers and spend our resources on making the performance better instead;)

    the ensolite foam: Ensolite, a very durable, light weight, closed cell foam is the ideal sound absorbing material for automotive applications. Most products sold for this purpose are outrageously expensive leading many DIYers to use inferior materials that do the job, but can’t stand up to your car’s harsh environment. Jute and the open celled foams you can buy in a craft shop absorb moisture, leading to mildew and nasty odors. Some “improvised” solutions even present a fire hazard.

    Our Ensolite sheeting is the ideal solution. Very reasonable cost, available in the quantities you need and easy to apply with our spray adhesive.

    Please order a minimum of 2 yards.

    1/8 (.125) inches
    Length
    36 inches (sold by the yard)
