Sound dampening rear hatch area?

I currently have the 40 section of my rear seats and a rear strut tower bar in the back of my Yaris, that is it. I get a lot of road/exhaust noise while driving and I was wondering...has anyone who has removed their seats/trunk/spare tried using Dynamat or Fat Mat to dampen the sound? Impressions? Suggestions?

Thank you

I used RAAMMat and the improvement was huge. The sound from my TRD exhaust was a bit too loud inside.

Also improved the sound of the rear speakers greatly by damping the flimsy speaker panel.

The installation looks crappy because I did it myself and I laid down little strips. The RAAMmat sticks to your hands like crazy. It sticks to rubber gloves even worse.

I bought one 50 foot roll. It's 15 inches wide and gives you 62.5 sq. ft.

$118.96

I think I've used 4/5 of it. I'm saving the rest for when I take my door panels off to see if I can sound deaden the front speaker panel.

I'd like to do that whole hatch / trunk area, all four of my doors, and some for the hood and engine bay.

I wonder how much weight that would add.

I have now done 3 cars with deadening and it is the best bang for my buck as far as a mod goes.

Stereo is way cleaner sounding,exhaust has lots less drone,road noise is almost gone.

My tC has 150feet of it,the other tC I did has 100,and the xA I just finished has about 75.

So RAAMMat vs. Fatmat vs. Dynamat. What's the difference w/ the cheapest product from each and which is best / highest quality / easiest to install?

Read the sound deadener showdown link above and then let your pocketbook decide.

Looks like SeconSkin Damplifier Pro. is the way to go. It's around $290 though for 80sq. ft. of it.

Actually, there was a large thread previously but was lost with the hack. I'm glad I was able to read it and find the material.

Oh that's cool, I guess I just started thinking about doing this and I wasn't able to find a thread on the topic. Thanks again.

going ghetto

I know its way ghetto, but I went with pipe-insulator. It looks and feels like the name-brand matts...a closed cell foam, sticky on one side, foil on the other side. I also taped all edges with cold-weather, HVAC foil tape.
I've no way to compare this set up to any of the name-brand matts, but it made a *huge* difference! The only worry I have is if it will stay put in next summers heat.
As far as price...2 rolls insulator @ $17 and 1 roll HVAC tape @ $20.

We'll see what happens next summer!
