Anyone have any experience with FatMat? I found this seemingly good deal on amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Rattle-T.....ewpoints=1

compared to this deal on dynamat:
http://www.amazon.com/Dynamat-.....amp;sr=8-1

Iffy sent me a piece of RAAMMAT, and it works great, but the price for 37sq ft is about the same for 50sq ft of fatmat.

I have no personal experience with FATMAT but I am in engineering school which means I am around a lot of mechanically inclined car people on a budget. I have heard good things about FATMAT when it comes to sound deadening, but from people installing the stuff to quiet the roar of mud terrain tires on the interstate. I also used to know a guy who put it under the hood of his Cummins powered Dodge to help reduce the turbo sound inside the truck. They were all happy with it but they bought it because they couldn't afford Dynamat so unfortunately I don't know of any comparisons.

I have an older Impala and I considered using FATMAT for a while before eventually going the paint and asbestos carpet pad route. This was a while ago but IIRC FATMAT was a bit thinner than the Dynamat which put me off of it because I was mainly looking for heat insulation. Although, I just noticed that you picked the Dynamat Extreme which is 1.7mm thick versus the FATMAT Rattletrap that is 80mils(2.032mm) so the FATMAT might be better. I guess the quality of the product is more important than the quanity. but you are getting a lot for your money.

I used the cheap roofing material from lowes. 2 rolls covered all four of my doors and my trunk lid. (and part of the trunk..near the vent area)

My neighbor had some of the thinner dynamat, and side by side, these were about the same thing.

It made a pretty good difference with rattling and the like. I think next summer I will do another coat of if tod double it up.

Its like 16 bucks a roll.

Oh and for the people that talk about it smelling during high temps. We had a week of about 95* here straight and it was fine

What's the product called? I'd rather do that. More bang for the buck

He probably used Peel and Seal... but I'd still recommend a legit sound deadener and not a roofing product. Laughing

This is correct. I honestly wasn't going to bother with sound deadener. I just wanted something to help with the vent rattle in the trunk and this was dirt cheap, so I picked it up. Honestly. for the money you spend, and how much you get, its a great product.

I plan on buying raamat or whatever its called at some point and see how it compares.

if you're looking for something on a budget though, peel n seal is pretty good

I have heard VERY good things about Audiotechnix Sound Deadener. Just go to www.audiotechnix.com I was thinking about asking for some for Christmas, I know a couple of buddies on SMD Forums use it as well and are pretty satisfied with it for the price.
