Dynamat vs Fatmat

OK ok ok - I know you get what you pay for blah blah....

But I am looking for someone with experience in a Defender with both?????

Anyone? I know it may just boil down to me paying for the Dynamat - but thought I would ask first.

IMO the biggest bang for the buck comes from the Wright Offroad/Exmoor acoustic mat system. But I have limited knowledge or experience with land rover diesels.

I have the acoustic system and I Dynamated the doors and cab. When I did the DM it did help even more.

Jonesy, this is just my limited experience but the 110's that I've owned/driven that have all fresh bushings, springs, shocks, tires and balanced wheels drive like a dream. I often think a well insulated bonnet would be the first area of focus and then slowly move on from there. Ideally the engine side of the bulkhead would be sweet as well, killing two birds with heat and vibes.

If you are interested in going up to see this guy in Maryland with me, he has several sound deadening solutions available. If we go up there we save shipping.
His main product is a loaded vinyl mat which you cut and fit into the footwells. These you then glue together to make a "bubble" inside that keeps the noise out. It goes in with hook and loop (velcro) so nothing is adhered to the panels. In all my research this seems like the best way to go even tho the up-front install is so finicky. The obvious advantage is that it is totally custom and you make it how you want it. I'm probably going to double up the thickness and then put my Hardura over it to hide everything. Should do the trick.

I've used Secondskin products with great success in my 240Z but not in any Land Rover. The whole purpose is to kill harmonics (drone) at various frequencies, of course. A layering (or two) of the buytl/aluminum on flat panels will work wonders on killing the high freq noise which I find to be the most disconcerning as do most others. I also use their 'sludge' product which is sprayed on with a splatter gun. It too aids tremendously. Lastly, There is a closed cell rubber matting that absorbs low frequencies. In my Z, I could not hold a conversation at highway speed without damn near hollering. After treatment I can talk in a normal volume or listen to music at a respectable level.

Its tough to know where to start, but I think under the hood has to be the first step.
Regardless of which brand, we use, my bias favors products that do not retain water.

Here is another brand I've been looking at.
