In Reply to: Has anyone installed Dynamat? posted by D Kang on December 09, 1999 at 05:25:04:
I put dynamat regular and super in my Volvo, and it is an all day task (All weekend for the whole car)
The E39 already has quite heavy soundproofing in the doors, and it'll be hard to install on the existing foam. I can only suggest that you remove the existing foam carefully, and apply the dynamat to the far side of the inner door. Then replace the existing stuff.
Honestly though, not all cars need Dynomat. If the shop you're going to is telling you that you need it, they're bullshitting you. The E39 is, in essence, "dynamatted" from the factory. I have had mine with it's panels and seats off, and it has quite a bit of soundproofing material in it already. I wouldn't waste my money on it if I were you, because the road noise is really not a big issue with these cars. As far as the sonic advantage BS, the E39 has heavy enough metal that it won't take away from your music. Anyway, the speakers in your car are enclosed in plastic chambers that provides a decent accoustic environment. The quality of the speakers however leaves much to be desired.
: I'm thinking of getting dynamats for my car(Front doors and rear deck). It looks like there are three different kind of Dynamats(Original, Super and Premium). I really don't know which one to get... If anyone has done this, please let me know... It'd be helpful if you tell me how much should I pay for the installation...
