Talking RetorAudio's review; Damp Pro and SPL Tiles

THIS IS MY REVIEW FOR A FREE DOOR PACK OF SECOND SKIN AUDIO DAMP PRO I WON & SPL TILES I PURCHASED!


First off let me say a big thanks to ANT from Second Skin Audio.


I had a major issue with my back wall moving and making noise, was very annoying and needed to be fixed. I had not had a chance to ever use Second Skin before and really wanted to give it a shot with all the reviews and compliments I had seen about their product.

Products used Damp Pro, SPL Tiles, Edead 45;





The first photo is of the area to have the damp pro and the spl tiles to be installed.. In the back wall there is a ridge and I was able to take the SPL tile and form it to the shape. Then I just pulled the back off and it kept the shape I just made very well due to the foil being so thick. It looks like a sheet aluminum with sticky stuff on it, is the best way I can describe?




I started on the back wall at the top. Due to the top being a bit weaker I used 10 SPL tiles across there very top (6 full sheets and 3 cut in half across). I must say I thought the SPL tiles would be a pain to cut but I was actually able to cut them with a pair of scissors.



Got a little messy on the fingers with the damp pro. On a scale of 1 to 10, messy wise maybe a 4 where fat mat was maybe a 2. But the Damp Pro is MUCH more sticky so it's worth it.






Next is the Damp Pro on the main wall. This is kind of a pain as it has a lot of "humps" in the back wall and has to bend like 2 different ways.





Then on the floor there we laid it down. It took 3 sheets to do this and that is the end of my Damp Pro.




Next is the floor under the 1/3 seat and where the false floor will be put in and box on top of that. Unfortunately, I did not have the money for Damp Pro but found a deal on Edead 45 mil. I must say this stuff feels funny. It's not a foil, it's like a plastic on the bottom that you peel off and the top "looks like" foil. I think its foil colored plastic? Cheap. But I got it cheap so I thought I would put it down on the floor since it can't slide down or fall off. Since it's SO thin I will have to cover it with Edead V3 paint on deadener tomorrow. So Edead = 2x the work.




So here is the finished product for tonight. All Second Skin is installed plus about 15' of Edead 45. The back wall will have a 2x4 run across and MDF on top of that screwed down on the back wall covered in Edead V3 and carpet to help brace the wall a bit. I will also be putting tennis balls between the back wall and the beed to reinforce it a bit more, about 3 of them across the back.







System to be installed:
Memphis 4k
Tru to3.150.4
2 Prototype Sundown Nightshade 12"s.
Box 2.75 cubes each tuned to 40 hz.
4 DD 6.5's for the doors 4 tweeters in front door.


If I was to rate the Damp Pro I would give it a solid 9.5/10 or A+
If I was to rate the SPL TILES I would give it a solid 8.5/10 or A


Reason for ratings.
Damp pro is the best stuff I have ever used. Very good.
SPL Tiles I have 2 issues with. 1. It's really small it needs to be available in bigger sheets. 2. It's a bit sticky to the hands, but I am not complaining as I would rather it be super sticky.

I just wanted to say I spoke with ant today after he found out the wrong color had went out and offered to send me the correct product to review.

I would have to say after giving all that away to everyone, then people trying to steal it by giving there code out. He offered to resend me the new black to test, along with stickers, and some other goodies..

I must say ant, I really like your style, I will be out to visit you in az I know a lot of stunt riders there, some of the best in the world are right around you. I get you vip passes to one of our events for you and everyone at secondskin. I think we are going there next year for sure. Last time I was there my truck said it was 136 out side I was like WTF.. haha That was right be I left for cali for our next hin event..

yep they should be b*tch slapped for it. ant is a great guy.. He gave away like $2850 in product, then people stole from him or tried to, then he goes and fully makes up for a ware house mix up and is resending black as he wants reviews on black. So as soon as I get it, I will install it and now review it fir him.

Truly a great guy. Much respect Second skin and ant...
