fatmat is cheaper...is it as good as dynamat, or do you get what you pay for?

you get what you pay for, go for "edead" (edead.com) you pay as low as a buck per sq/ft. and that is as good as dynamat

i used the eDead v1 last week and it worked great. never used dynamat, so i cant compare, but i'm very happy with the results from the eDead. i have an '84 4runner with oversized tires so the road noise has always been terrible; people are amazed how quiet it is when they ride in my truck now. i got 120 sq ft for $120 shipped, i couldnt justify the extra cost for dynamat extreme. from a cost/benefit analysis standpoint, i cant imagine dynamat could be that much better to justify the hundreds of extra dollars. just my opinion.

I would get eDead. mainly becuase when i bought deadening they helped me with my questions and fatmat never returned emails or phone calls. the owner of elemental called me after i sent in a bunch of questions.

The dynamat extreme is almost twice as thick as Fatmat but for the price you can just double the fatmat and save alot of $$$$$$

I've used eDead v1se(70mil) and some Tsunami 45 mil stuff, but I like this the best:

http://www.sounddeadeningmaterial.com/whatisit.html

At 59 mils its thinner than the v1se with a thicker layer of aluminum which makes it slightly stiffer, but since its embossed(dimpled) it actually stretches more w/o tearing(the dimples smooth right out) and seems to stick better by holding its shape after being "bent" around tough corners.

Its slightly more expensive than the v1se at around $2 a sq foot shipped and probably has slighty less sound dampening ability due to the reduced thickness, but if your installing dampener on a surface which is far from flat, IMO its definitely the way to go.

you get more thickness with edead for less money. and if you want something thinner just get v1 for half the cost of that stuff...... v1 is dimpled btw. mine was anyway..... use their coupon discount and it's 80 cents a sq. ft.

You know where I can find a better pic than what they have on their website? If that embossing looks the same I might try the v1 next time.

I cleaned my surfaces really well but am having problems with a few edges and corners peeling with the v1se. On the flat stuff no problem but it doesn't seem to hold as well around corners.

I know it has been mentioned, but what luck has anyone had with the "peel and seal" you can get at home depot?? I just bought some, and its self adhesive and temp resistant, because it is supposed to be used on a roof....

my se and v1 has not moved a inch or pealed. nor has my dynamat extreme though. the se and dynamat extreme were the same thing. i couldn't tell a difference. if 70mils is too thick get v1 for 80 cents a sqft...

i visit their forum sometimes on that icix site. thers alot of pictures there and people with a TON of knowledge.i use their subs and amps too and the elemental designs stuff is great.

Well I just put the stuff in and it has been getting pretty hot. It may sort itself out. I know there's no way the v1se is coming OFF. Its just that I spent a large amount of time making sure I didn't have air bubbles and had good contact on all the crazy bends and it kind of irritates me to come back the next day and see a corner or edge thats lifted a bit.

Didn't have that problem at all with the Tsunami or SDM, but that stuff is thinner and the v1se is super pliable in comparison.
