    I spoke with Rick at RAAMaudio www.raamaudio.com and I wanted to pass the word along to everyone. If you contact him and mention Tacoma World, you will get a discount on his products.

    RAAMmat BXT $99/roll
    Ensolite Foam 9.95/yard (3 yards per roll of BXT)
    Adhesive for foam $6.95/can (1 can per 2.5 - 3 yards)

    This seems to be the best product for the money.

    I haven't done my truck yet, but this is definitely on my short list (which is surprisingly long) of things to do. I think that my double cab could probably be done for about $500.

    Did you ever do this? I have been talking to Rick for a while. I hope that I can get this done with Tax money... :devil:

    Does Rick know how much sound deadener each style of truck needs?

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    Yeah, cost IS an issue. Is there a cheaper way to get "good" sound deadening? Stuff your doors with cotton or insulation? I have a rattle in my back doors of the access cab, so I don't have to worry about the window not rolling down. Would heavier-duty bubble-wrap be a good alternative? "Splain Lucy"
    Thanks

    There's probably some corners you can cut, but I don't know them.
    With cotton or insulation, think of mold due to moisture.
    People have tried the tar paper you put on roofs, but it's either been VERY smelly, peels, or has other problems.

    I have been told that you usually don't need as much as you'd think. People around here like to completely blanket the vehicle, sometimes with multiple layers, and that's really not necessary because you are pushing past the point of what you are going to gain.

    It's been recommended to me to start with 1 roll BXT, 3 yards of Ensolite, 1 can adhesive. This should be enough to do the front doors and possibly have some material left over. Using the prices above, that's roughly $135, which is easier to swallow and gets things moving in the right direction. From there, I can evaluate any more needs. Remember, it's not an all or nothing application, try buying a bit at a time as you find necessary.

    You should ask Rick, but I'm pretty sure it's a yes.

    37.5 Sq/Ft is only 89.96 now on the website, it's BTX II though, I don't see BTX listed. Check with him about the discount off that and post it for the rest of us.

    tint, I race motorcycles therefore I have no time for this stuff.
    I used to be big with IASCA and do sound quality events. I used plastic roof cement on ever panel. It's like thick tar you smear around and let dry for 24 hours. A bucket will set you back @ $20 bucks and do more then one truck. The negative is the smell that last a couple of days.

    Before you say no way or whatever try it and you'll see why I had so many trophy's.
