Good sound proofing material?

Forget Dynamat, too expensive. Iv'e heard about FatMat, and a couple others. I also heard about products found at Lowes and Home depot. How good is that stuff? Someone said a building supply roofing Ice barrier?? Whats you take on it?

I actually prefer to pick up a bulk of jute padding from an upholstery supply store.

Cheap, light, and very easy to work with. In addition to the jute that is on the backside of the carpet, it works well. With my cars, I cant even hear the engine running when the windows are rolled up.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

I used to use the jute stuff, but quite frankly, it doesn't work beans compared to the real deal. I took it all out and tossed it in the trash. Plus, if there's ever a leak, it will hold all the water and start a rust-fest.

Dynamat is too expensive IMO, so I went with RAAMmat from RAAMAudio. It's pretty much exactly the same and is much, much cheaper. Using this and closed cell foam, you can make your interior sound like a Lexus. When I tap on the doorskin, it's a nice THUD instead of a tin-like resonance. You can't do that with jute.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

I couldn't really find any reviews of that lobucrod stuff, so I bought the Fatmat off of e-bay. It hasn't arrived yet, but I think it will work well. I got 100 square ft with roller and stuff for $109.00 including shipping. I'm going to cover everything, floor, tunnel, doors, firewall, behind rear seat. Hope it works well. Will do a review here when done. I plan to take pictures and the whole deal.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

The problem I had with Fatmat is I had seen seen numerous complaints about their shipping and customer service.

Saw one thread the other day from a guy who said he finally recieved his after almost four months. Their feedback was awful, but now I see they have changed their ID in the last 30 days and it's all positive feedback since. It also says item will be shipped in 24 hrs or less. Maybe they've finally changed.


I watched this stuff for a long time trying to decide whether to roll the dice with them or not. I bought the Raammat.

I hope you get your Fatmat in a timely manner. Looks like they are trying to change their image. Let us know. Good luck.

I looked at the RAAMmat BXT also. I kinda like that better. I may get 200' so I can double everything and do the doors.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

I just bought it yesterday, but based on what you said, I think I will call or e-mail the seller and tell them I need the stuff ASAP, and nail them down on a shipping date. I had heard complaints before about their timliness, but I guess I forgot that til you mentioned it. I think the product will work well, but we will see. I'll let everyone know, in fact when I contact them, I think I will mention my concerns as to their shipping. That might speed them up a bit too.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

I have never heard anyone complain about the actual Fatmat product. Just the things I mentioned in my previous post. I'd say it's a good product, alot of people use it.

I ordered the Raammat last Thursday. Within minutes I recieved an E-mail from Rick(the owner) thanking me for my order. Then within a few more minutes I got another E-mail from them telling me my order was being processed and would ship out that day.

Within an hour of ordering it I recieved another E-mail saying it had been shipped and they had enclosed the tracking info.

I haven't recieved it yet but I will post back when I get it.

Yes, that is what I drive every day, they are very quiet.

I've read many posts on sound proofing material. It seems that most are happy with the different products. The issues seem to be related to price, shipping and the amount of weight that is being added to the car.

Re: Good sound proofing material?

One thing I would mention is that any of the self-adhesive products are an absolute bear to remove. So, if you're considering weld in SFC's or other body work I'd strongly suggest doing it before installing any of the self-adhesive sound insulation products. This advise is the result of painful personal experience.

I'm in that position right now, too.
