Considering that the only overall rankings they do are to declare a "best product" and "best value," it's very difficult to say that they came in "second" on that site. Each category, however, is a different issue. Take price, for instance. Dynamat Xtreme is the most expensive product out there. Dynamat Original failed at 160*F - the second...from the bottom. (Dynamat Xtreme did well there, failing at 500*F. However, the Damplifier products didn't even fail at that high temperature and cost less.) In conclusion - Dynamat is overpriced, especially at the MSRP. YMMV.

i agree, dynamat is overpriced. so is starbucks coffee.
but when you have the brand name alot is forgiven. i would like to try the damplifier product. and maybe get some samples myself and do my own private testing. i tend to be very sceptical about the things i read on the internet. the is no substitute for first hand experience
it would also be nice if the the spray on products work as they claim.

I guess that's why some folks pay $80K for an Escalade instead of buying a Chevy for half the price. Doesn't make it smart, though.

Thanks for all the info. I really love this site loads of knowledge and hands on expereince. I am leaning toward the dynomat but haven't made a final decision. I will be starting this project next month I will let you know what I decide and whether or not I am satisfied with the results.

I have used Dynomat for well over ten tears on variopus projects. I prefer to use extreme, and have experienced first hand great results when installing on the insiide firewall, floor, doors, ect. Outside noise is dramatically reduced, as well as heat if you get the extreme with a layer of foil (which is heat reflective). It's all I ever used when competing in IASCA sanctioned stereo competitions. You get what you pay for in most cases.
