SDS CLD tiles are the best bang for your buck...http://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com

Peel n Seal just mass loads panels...it has the same effect as a butyl based deadener but it takes lots of lots of layers to do what 1 layer of the good stuff does. Fumes from Peel n Seal are harmful, heat can become an issue and you'll end up with it falling off of every panel you put it on. Deadener is the kind of thing you want to do right the first time and not have to go back and do it again.

sadly im starting to realize I screwed myself by just throwing down a layer of peel-n-stick. :( I really don't feel like ripping everything back out of this jeep, but I suppose if it's worth doing, its worth doing right..:angry5:

This the Cld tiles are easy to work with and work great! i was running 3k and my trunk had less rattle than my friend running preformance tech. . . . .

forgot to mention his trunk was completely lined in dynamat.

I'm gonna get flamed for saying this........ I use edead80 with great results. It sticks fine and is butyl based. There was a BIG audible difference in ouput before and after deadening.

I'd rather use 1 layer of better stuff, than multiple layers of cheap stuff, saves you so much time and probably costs the same. It takes like 6-8 layers of edead to get close to 1 layer of ss damp pro.

and not to mention that cheaper stuff will not stick as well and will peel off very easily. I had edead on my trunk floor and after 2 weeks a lot of it was peeling off around the wheel well area where it's curved and I removed most of the deadener like nothing.

is the cld tiles only .5sq ft per tile?
closer to .4 per tile iirc

Although with CLD tiles, you do not have to cover every inch of the area. Your best bet would be to email Don, he took his time and wrote like a page on how to soundproof my car, including where, how many, and how much of his material to use. He even recommended me to buy a different MLV from a local place I never knew about to save me some $ due to shipping.
