Save 20% on Second Skin! Only 3 more!

Well so far we've got 7 names on the list to save 20% on any product from Second Skin Audio. We only need 3 more people! You can purchase any amount of any product, large or small, to get in on the group buy. You can see their prices and products at www.secondskinaudio.com . Also, check out some reviews like the one below:

Quote:
Highest Quality
Second Skin's products live up to their "Over Engineered to Over Perform" motto. They are clearly a higher quality alternative to Dynamat Xtreme - designed for greater heat tolerance, with higher quality materials.

If quality is your most important requirement, Second Skin Damplifier or Damplifier Pro are the obvious choices. Dynamat Xtreme is close, but being more expensive and not as good isn't a winning combination. I congradulate Second Skin Audio for their obvious dedication to providing the best product possible.
The quote was taken from www.sounddeadenershowdown.com. This is a great opportunity to get a great price on a top-of-the-line product.

The group buy so far includes:
1. Gearhead61
2. zabeard
3. r0ng5
4. buzzair
5. Alucard
6. KARPE
7. j18willis
8. rolla_guy

Let's get this group-buy off the ground!

Should I use the spectrum or damplifier pro first on the doors (inner/outer skin)?

For our trucks the spectrum is not exactly the ideal material to use. I'd suggest your first layer be the damplifier or damplifier pro, and if you want more deadening after that, to use the overkill foam layer. The spectrum you've got to be careful with so you don't plug any bolt holes or other holes, like the water drain holes in the bottom of the doors.

I'm in, he just didn't put me on the list... just jumps on and off in a couple minutes...

So I guess I'll get the Damplifier Pro Door kit. Does that cover 1 or 2 doors?

Sorry Channing I was in class this morning. I'll add you to the list. The door kit should have enough to cover both doors. It's 12 sq. ft. If you think you might want more, measure your doors and see how much you will need!

18"x32" piece is 4 square feet. So you get 3 peices with the door kit? That's odd, oh well.

How am I supposed to get the stock crap off the doors?? I ws thinking, just cut it out of the holes and put the Damplifier over it... does that sound alright?

Sorry if I'm kinda jacking the thread...lol.

I tried pulling a corner off, but it was stuck pretty good, maybe becuase it's really hot and humid here.

Mine came off pretty easy when I was disassembling my last truck. Maybe try a hair-dryer to remove the old stuff?

Bump for 2 more! We're so close!

How does Damplifier compare to Cool-it / Thermotec Suppressor mat? I'm looking more for heat control than noise, but its got to be a material that won't absorb and hold water. (wet interiors are an inevitability in the Miata, and the exhaust really heats up the driver's side footwell on the Miata.) Right now I've got a layer of Suppressor with a layer of Reflectix over it, I completely eliminated the jute mat. Right now I have about the same amount of heat as before, slightly more noise, but I'd really like to lessen the heat (esp. in stop&go traffic, where the heat just SITS in the transmission tunnel and bakes my leg; at least at speed air blows under the car and minimizes the effect.) I might be interested in a little bit of the Damplifier.

Damplifier I'm not sure, you might wanna look into a spray layer on the under side or inside that is more what you are looking for as far as their product descriptions go, I am no expert though.

Wowak this is taken from the '3 step plan' page on Second Skin's site:

Quote:
Second Skin Vibration Dampers/Thermal Insulators work in four ways.


-Their viscoelastic composition converts vibrations into easily dissipated low level heat.
-They add structural integrity and mass to vehicle panels, eliminating resonance and flexing.
-They create a thermal barrier blocking heat transfer in and out of the vehicle.
-They create an acoustical barrier preventing noise from penetrating the passenger compartment.
It's a butyl compound, which is sort of similar to rubber, so it shouldn't absorb any moisture either. The foil lining/covering of it should suppress the heat and keep moisture out of it also. I don't know how it compares to what you've got, however.

They also have the firewall??? stuff that you can spray or paint on, but it's white...

Oh, btw... I decided to get the 20sq.ft. of the Damplifier... they don't sell the damplifier pro by the sq.ft.???

What ever is left I can stick it to my body and make funny myspace pics...lol.

The Damplifier pro is sold as door kit/trunk kit/whatever kit but it still comes in X sq. ft. per pack. It's just a different name.

It's cheaper than the equivalent amount of Dynamat Extreme BEFORE the 20% off! And it's of better quality too!

sound deadening is something i've always wanted to do, but never really looked into it. anyone got any idea what an extended cab would need to have the floor pan done, the back wall, both front doors, and both rear ext. cab doors? i'm not worried about the headliner, or anything above the pillars really. what's everyone getting for something like that?
