If you had to choose between THOSE two, Dynamat. Not because of it';s thickness or any of that, but because it's a high quality product with a good butyl adhesive.

Whereas FatMat has a thin foil and an asphalt/rubber mix as it's adhesive.


In all honesty, I would take a better look at ALL of the choices out there... HINT HINT check sig HINT HINT. :p


Fatmat rapes yer women and burns yer kids :peepwall:

Good thing I keep it locked up outside in the shop... :D
In all serious though, it's out there because of the damn smell.

Dynamat is far overpriced, and lets not get started on fatmat as it cant compare as a real butyl based CLD. Dynamat extreme in comparison to say SS Damp pro costs more and you get less. SS damp pro is thicker therefore getting better results at a cheaper price. Fatmat is the opposite: Cheap price with worse results. IMO, do your deadener the RIGHT way first. Why skimp? Hell the new alpha damp pro could technically, if going by only covering 15% of panels (which many people consider that enough and anything more is a waste, iirc), deaden a whole car. Not bad for the $140 price tag.

To recap class:
Fatmat: Shit in comparison to real butyl based CLD products.
Dynamat: Overpriced hype that people only know of because bestbuy and all local shops sell their terribly overpriced products. The kicker of deadening if you will.
SS Damp/Damp Pro/Alpha Damp: Best product hands down in this comparison. May not be the best price in comparison to fatmat, but will give better results at a better price.

Ninja'd by Jon. Damnit hes too fast. :ninja:

Hey I don't blame ya, I order all sorts of crap off Amazon.

If you HAVE to buy off of Amazon, buy the highest quality product you can.
I know there are a few other products on Amazon that are made in the US, cheaper than Dynamat, and perform spectacularly.

If budget is an issue, Audio Technix is a little cheaper, and from what I've heard, comparable to the Damplifier from Second Skin.

Hope you don't take any offense to that Jon, just suggesting a cheaper, but quality product.

Lol the section says second skin. But alpha pro hasn't been tested in real world applications yet so I'd hold off on recommending that.

And you can't go wrong with second skin!

No offense taken.
I have my data comparing most of these products being discussed and I know where it ranks compared to the thinner and lighter Damplifier. ;)
