Sound Dampening Material

There is a product sold at hardware stores called USeal. It's instant waterproof repair tape for roof flashing. I read somewhere about somebody using it in their car for sound dampening and it only cost about $13 for 12.5sq. ft. so I gave it a try and it works great. I've used the name brand stuff before and I really think this stuff works just as good. Or maybe I just put it on thicker because it was so much cheaper. Either way I don't think I've seen this product listed on this forum and it's worth mentioning. Same results at a less expensive price works for me.

Ha ha! Don't I wish my system was that powerful! I'm too frugal (cheap) to make it that good!

Would not suggest hardware store type, asphalt based products. Those products are not designed for this application . Can lead to asphalt smell in car as well as becoming unstuck when temp rises. Best sound dampeners are second skin, dynamat, and NVX makes a good product. These are excellent way to improve speakers bass response in doors and keep interior quite.

It's been hot & humid for about a week in Ohio, no asphalt smell except when I pass a paving train. The stuff is meant to go on roofs, it can take the heat. Whatever works for you is cool though. No problems!
