You always over-pay for Dynamat unless you get it at cost.

Always.

02Zetecse and I know what we are talking about here and would never recommend inferior products.

SecondSkin is great as well.

Second Skin is considered one of the best brands in the industry. Dynamat is deemed "best" as it is sold in most retail chains . It is infact a mid grade product . AudioTechnix deadener is a up and coming brand who does not have the Rep or cost of Secondskin or dynamat, But offers a High quality competitive product .

does anyone have pictures of their dynamat installed? I have a question about the factory rubery material that is already there. I wonder if I remove it if it will let moisture and or water and affect my speakers or window regulators.

Id stay away from Higher End applications like Second Skin and Dynamat, no matter what you do its gonna make a difference. I would only recommend higher end stuff if you were planning on doing some car audio work to it. But in terms rattle, even the cheap stuff will be just fine. Look into Fat Mat and Rattle Trap. Best bang for the buck in my book.

I'm partial to Dynamat. But then again, I got mine at WELL below cost. It helps a little bit, but my trunk still rattles more than I'd like, even with two layers on the trunk lid and one layer elsewhere. Guess I could just turn it down.

Fill it with expanding foam. That'll do the trick. Before i had my Focus i had a Fiesta, 2011. I was running Two Sundown Audio 12s, along with a Rockford T-1500 BDcp, which pushed almost 2000w RMS. I tried everything, and nothing seemed to work, but then i tried the expanding foam, and the results were fantastic.

I've been told that a couple times. Just been too lazy to try it. One of these days I'm sure I'll get around to it

Did you seal off the access holes?
