Exclamation where can I buy sound-deadening mats (cheap)?

I'm going to install a 2.5midpipe(non-resonated) with a sheepdog muffler soon.

just want to decrease the noise level by putting some mats under the carpet...

any comments / suggestions will be appreicated

why sheepdog??cause the name...j/k
it's a used one from Derek Kong.

Orbitier,
I've read your post in the past about "great stuff" , i already applied it on door..and side of rear....
and it made a huge difference...especially on the highway.....but now the door seems like a bit heavier than b4......how do i tighten the door hinge????

i went to A&B sound b4, but those are not dynamat...it's other brand, but doesn't require pre-heating....any comments?

also i might apply some chasis-reinforcing stuff..

ITW Foamseal

previous msg thread about chasis-refinforcing.

tmr, actually i want to modify the midpipe(put a resonator on).......
know how much it cost???

is there any way that i can make my impreza as quiet as lexus???(below 140km/h)

i like impreza, but just wanna make little improvement on it....

buying an impreza doesn't mean you have to accept every thing it is....

otherwise no body's gonna mod their car..right

i believe you have at least 1 or 2 minor eh?

Lexus?! I would rather drive a Subaru

The Sheepdog has a nice sound, but it's a good idea to minimize all the excessive interior noise with Dynamat so you can still enjoy the stereo

Strong adhesive and roofing tiles

That's essentially what dynamat is.

Okay, let me wake this thread, I'm going to add some sound deadening material to my car, I checked out A&B sound, they've got something that's call Hotmat noise killer, I have never tried any sound deadening material and I have no idea how good these are comparing to the Dynamat. As those of you said go to Home Depot for sound deadening material, I was never be able to find them at Home Depot. Which home depot did you guys go to? hehe... Thanks guys, BTW, those hot mats are 39.99 for like 17"x33"! D*mn expensive!
