I know we all have our favorites but I just happened to get invited to a LOCAL (20 minutes from me) company today and got to see first hand quite a few products. The company is: GTMAT - Automotive Sound Deadner
I talked with Rich from Sales, Tracie from Marketing and even the owner Rhett was there. They have been catering to the Tuner/Restoration market for a little while now helping to get rid of the engine sounds and vibrations along with muffler drone. I asked them about the Car audio market but they haven't moved too far into that direction yet.
I got a few samples of some products to include some super secret unreleased version of their Brush/Roll on Liqui-Damp and will be doing a full Build log on my front doors since they still have some vibrations using the eDead product.
My favorite part was the warehouse... Theirs? The owner Rhett and Rich sat in my truck and got to hear how awesome a Hybrid audio front stage sounds like Needless to say, I bet they would have been Shocked as hell if I told I told them I didn't have any tweeters!
If you want to try it out for yourself, you can send them an email or give them a call and get a free 10 SQ FT Sample, here is the pictures of what I received:
The below is my quick review of the product to show the typical application and a bit of proof of concept:
