Putting in sound dampening

While getting ready to install my cb antenna coax under the carpet I realized just how dirty it was so I decided to tear everything out except for the dash and while interior was gutted I decided lay done noise dampener.

I bought 1 kit of dynamat that was $150 which I got to do the firewall and front floor and I got 6 rolls of peel and seal from Lowe's to do the rear and pillars. Also dynamat will be used on doors . Have not finished yet but so far I have used 3 of the rolls on the rear. The peel and seal ran me $16 a roll.

Let me know how much sound it actually blocks when you are done.

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news. Despite popular belief, CLD also known as Constrained-layer damping (I.E. Dynamat or Peal n' Seal) does not actually deaden sound. It simply absorbs vibrations, hence why it is so popular in the auto audio industry.

Before you put everything back together I suggest you buy some CCF and / or MLV. CCF = Closed Cell Foam , MLV = Mass Loaded Vinyl.

While a good dampener is good at removing vibrations it does a poor job at blocking sound. Studies have shown that 25% coverage of dampener is more than enough. Actually, Covering any more than 25% of you interior with dynmat shows very little return on investment.

MLV is what you want to block sound. This is heavy duty stuff and comes with a hefty price tag.

If you want to know more just ask!

CCF is great at absorbing sound, not blocking it but absorbing it. CCF works great inside your doors.

MLV is what you want to block sound. This is heavy duty stuff and comes with a hefty price tag.

It's some really great stuff! I did my entire interior with CLD, CCF, & MLV.
The only locations I haven't done are the a-pillars and behind the dash.
Right now my biggest issue is wind noise. Damn OBS trucks have awful window & door seals.

If I remember properly used about 7 sq/ft of material in each door. (I attached the sound deadener to the outer skin of the door) I added roughly 20lbs of material to each door. My doors no longer sound & rattle like a tin can when they shut, instead I get a nice thud.

I had a scrap piece of MLV laying around so I took a picture (1.5lb per sq/ft):
