    With all of the systems I have built over the years, I have never installed any silencing material and have become intrigued because everyone seems to be using it now.

    My question is this. When installing Dynamat, or any of the other offerings, do you put the material just under the door panel or do you also add it inside the door on the outer skin?

    but I guess I should re-phrase the question. I have read just about every system installation post on TW and have seen that some just do the inside of the door, some do the face of the door under the panel, sometimes both and sometimes partially both. I guess I'm wondering if there is an advantage to any particular style?

    Yes, doing both is the best way. Deadening the whole door is better. The reason some people do more and some do less is the varying degrees of effort put into the install. I really wanted good results so I did both (and I plan to do more) but some people don't want to spend as much so they wont do quite as much.

    It just takes a while since you have to get everything out. Trust me. Do it right; do it once.

    Yea Ill probably wait til after the holidays and take a day to do it. My buddy bought a box too for his SI so we'll knock it out together to make time go by faster. Has anyone done a DIY on here on removing the door panels and what places work best in terms of material placement and effectiveness? I clicked the link above but it just leads me to the TOPICS homepage.

    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    I plan to purchase a roll of RAAMmat on the outer skin of my front doors. I'll also put a layer on the inner skin of the door (part that faces the driver).
    But what about the Ensolite? Is it necessary?

    If I don't use it, do I need a moisture barrier? Like the plastic that is in there?

    Should the Ensolite be put on in ONE whole sheet? Or can it be cut to fit around the rod and wire harness?

    Using each door panel as a pattern, I cut the sheets of Ensolite out in one big sheet, then made cuts as necessary to work through and around the rods. It was pretty easy.

    I'm quite sure there would be some rattles and buzzing going on with the door panels now if I hadn't used the Ensolite.
