So what is the biggest difference between dynamat and damplifier pro? Which should I get and how much for just the trunk of a tahoe/suburban?

Damplifier Pro is butyl based, Dynamat is Asphalt based.

If you ment DynamatExtreme, then I'd have to go and nitpick the thickness and such.. which you can do too.

price as well.... Damplifier is less expensive (at least for us in hawaii)... Damplifier pro is more cost effective... It's almost 1-1/2 times thicker then dynamt extreme for slightly more...

Speakers are dumb, they do what you tell them to do, by either the volume knob, or the gain/settings on the amplifier. They don't destroy themselves, and they don't mess up themselves...it does what its told to do

I've never had the pleasure to use second skin but I've read great things. I used raamat on my truck this past week and it was real easy to use and worked really well. Stay away from dynamat, go with either second skin or raamat.

If you are going to compare similar products you should look at our entry level mat, Damplifier, not Damplifier Pro.

Dynamat Extrme
1.67 mm thick
.45 lbs psf
4 mil foil
300 degree heat rating

Damplifier
1.25 mm thick
.45 lbs psf
4 mil foil
500 degree heat rating.

Damplifier is slighty thinner than Dynamat Extrme but weighs the same. This is becuase we introduce a defoaming agen in to the butyl while it is blending and re reduce the air content from the formla. Since there is less air bubbles in the adhesive it is very dense.
If we wanted to, we could leave the machine on foa few hours longer, and not use the defoaming agent and we could easily turn a 100 gallon batch of butyl adhesive in to a 150 gallon batch. Then, we could apply that to the foil at a greater thickness and could make the claim that our product is the thickest around.
Problem is, there would be no difference in weight. so even though a the product is thicker you don't get any better results since there is just as much material as the thinner batch.
This is why we often encourage people to compare the weight of a product rather than the thickness.
Obviously there is more to vibration damping than just weight, but the more it weighs per square foot, the more you get for your money.

Look at Damplifier Pro. 1.75 mm thick but it weight .65 lbs per sq foot and has a 6 mil foil heat shield.
Nothing in the industry comes close to those specs.

I used Damplifier Pro one of the best, better than Dynamat Xtreme IMO.

Here's something that could give you some outlook on other products also...

Yep, rubberized asphalt.


This is an excerpt from Dynamat's 'Spec Sheet'.

"Dynamat Xtreme is a patented, light-weight, elastomeric,
butyl and aluminum constrained-layer vibrational damper."


Excerpt from their 'Info Sheet'

"The extra sticky patented butyl layer is
formulated with VECTOR™ chemistry for the most amazing energy
conversion capabilities ever."

"Use it on doors, floors, roofs"

Dynamat original is asphalt


Here is an excerpt from http://www.dynamat.c...t_original.html

DYNAMAT ORIGINAL
Description:
Dynamat Original is a styrene-butyadine-rubber- based, pressure-sensitive adhesive-backed, heat bondable vibrational damper.


So is Dynamat wrong, or are you two wrong?

That guy has done tons of research and work on that article and I think he knows what he is talking about. Dynamat probably just words it to make it sound like its better then it is.

A 3-year old product review website doesn't do much for me.

Anywho.. the guy admits Dynamat is "SBR(styrene-butadiene-rubber)/Asphalt"
