    Question Dynamat

    Right, I've never used this stuff before, so treat me like a complete numpty with any replies please...

    I've got an amp & sub in the boot of my estate, and while i'm certainly not the sort of person where you can hear the bass pounding along the road from miles away, I do like my music, and I like it loud

    Only problem is, things rattle.....sunglasses in the sunglasses holder, bits & pieces in the cup holder near the handbrake, stuff in the glovebox....

    1. Would dynamat (or similar) make any difference?
    2. How and where would I put it for best effect?

    Ta

    I have never used Dynamat before. I make sure that i do not keep coin's in the ashtray, keep a hanky with the sunglasses, nothing to small that moves around in the glove box, anything in the boot ie wrench is covered in a cloth so all the above never cause's any rattle's at all. Also with the car being lowered so much can also give me problems going over bumpy roads so the same applies.

    Dynamat is a bit like adhesive flashing (which somepeople use instead) & you stick it on the inside of panels. It'll help to reflect sound & stop the panels drumming & deaden them but wont help your ashtray or the sunglasses holder

    As above Dynamat is for panel rattle and to prevent loss of sound through the panels it won't help anything lose in ashtrays etc. sorry!

    Noisekiller Self-Adhesive Barrier Mat is pretty much the same as Dynamat but much cheaper - I've used a fair bit & it's good stuff

    dynamat is heavy as well. Any kind of thin rubber padding should do the trick but if you play it loud you must have good hearing or some major rattling

    Things like Dynamat alter the mass and density of the panel in question, most metal used is so thing and has so little mass it resonates like the top surface of an acoustic guitar or violin. By sticking the mat onto it you alter the frequency at which it resonates, also the sticky compound helps to damp the vibrations quicker than normal. Very useful in reducing road noise, or external ingress of other traffic. No use for stopping the change rattling in the ash tray.
