Now shipping Damplifier with Black Foil!
We designed Damplifier to compete against the best and most popular constraint layer dampers (CLD) the industry has to offer while weighting and costing much less!
Compare the weight & foil thickness to everything else, and you will see, Damplifier is the best automotive sound deadening value in its class!
With a weight of .35 lbs. per square foot and a 6.5 mil thick foil constraining layer, this self adhesive CLD vibration damper helps insure a cool and quiet ride by killing structure borne vibrations, noise and heat, while saving weight and money.
Thanks to the high temperature & high rubber content butyl adhesive, you will not have to worry about this automotive insulation falling off, peeling, or melting. Damplifier is the perfect automotive sound deadener for every area of the vehicle. Simply cut, peel and stick this foil backed vibration damper under your carpet and upholstery to get better sound deadening results than any other product in its price class!
Noise Reduction Uses...
Whether you are looking to quiet down your street rod, or make your daily driver comfortable as a luxury car, B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro are an affordable and effective alternative to the A-Stock.
The first acoustical problem in any sound deadening project is structure borne noise This is the harmonics and resonance that is emitted from the cars sheet metal panels, similar to a wind chime. Unlike wind chimes however, our cars are not tuned to any specific musical frequency, so what we end up hearing is the road noise, engine rumble and exhaust drone.
Stopping the vibrations on your cars metal panels is much like stopping a noisy wind chime with your hand. Once the vibrations stop, the structure borne noise stops.
Traditional noise mats are mostly inefficient mass loaders; heavy & foul smelling tar boards that work by adding weight to the cars metal to quiet it down. This technology is over 50 years old, and for some reasons, is still being promoted by many of our competitors.
Damplifier Pro is not a mass loader or a heavy tar board. It is a constraint layer viscoelastic damper that converts the vibrational energy in to low level heat. This conversion of energy makes it 300% more efficient than traditional mass loading tar boards and asphalt mats while weighing half as much! Simply cut, peel and stick B-Stock Damplifier or Damplifier Pro to the interior sheet metal of your car to block out unwanted structure borne noise!
If you have an aftermarket sound system, then you know that a lot of the musical energy is spent, and even wasted by vibrating and flexing the your cars metal panels. Not only are these vibrations loud and obnoxious, but they also limit the potential of your stereo.
B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro will help improve your audio system in several ways: First, and perhaps most obvious, it will kill the vibrations, which will reduce panel distortion and strengthen the area around the speakers. Less vibrations means less unwanted noise and a more stable environment for the speakers to perform in.
Second, it will increase the volume of your music by keeping the acoustical energy in the car rather than letting it escape through the vibrating panels. Volume inside the car increases while nasty panel resonance outside the car is eliminated.
And finally, Damplifier Pro can improve your audio system by reducing unwanted ambient noise like road noise, engine noise & exhaust drone. When you can quiet down the rest of the car, the stereo has less sonic real estate to fight for, and the perceived volume increases.
To fully reduce road, engine and exhaust noise, we suggest the use of a noise barrier like Luxury Liner Pro on top of your B-Stock Damplifier or Damplifier Pro.
B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro are not only incredible sound deadening mats, but they also act as one mean thermal insulator. The ultra thick foil and high quality butyl rubber on B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro offers three thermal insulation benefits.
First, the foil acts as a radiant barrier, reflecting heat back towards the source. When used on the firewall, this reduces the amount of heat making it in to the cabin of the car. Less heat means cooler temperatures. Pretty simple.
Second, the foil heat shield on B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro dissipates heat by increasing the surface area, allowing for thermal dissipation and reduction. Third, the butyl layer slows down any remaining heat on its way in to the cabin of the car. The longer it takes the heat to get to you, the easier it is for your air conditioning to counter it, and the more comfortable you are.
B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro are thermal insulators much like a coffee thermos. If you put hot liquid in the thermos, it stays hot for longer. If you put ice water inside, the ice takes longer to melt.
This is basically what B-Stock Damplifier and Damplifier Pro can do for your car. With a couple layers of Damplifier Pro installed, the outside environment has less effect on the internal temperatures of the car. For the next level of thermal insulation and heat control, add a layer of Heatwave or Heatwave Pro on top of your final layer of Damplifier Pro.
If you want the ultimate in heat rejection, add a layer of Luxury Liner Pro on top of your final layer of Damplifier Pro
What is the difference between Damplifier Pro and Damplifier CLD vibration damping mats??
Damplifier and Damplifier Pro are the same basic automotive CLD sound deadener mats in terms of product quality, but Damplifier Pro has a total thickness that is twice as thick as our regular automotive vibration mat Damplifier.
The foil on both of our automotive sound deadeners is the same; both 6.5 mils thick. The only difference between the two products is the total thickness of the adhesive.
What makes your automotive sound deadening mat Damplifier, different from asphalt roofing products or sound deadeners that come rolled up?
We only produce automotive sound damping mats that are designed for cars. Unlike roofing tapes, or other products that come on rolls, our automotive sound deadeners mats use only butyl binders with no asphalt filler. Our vibration dampers are odorless, non toxic & designed by expert adhesive formulators to reduce automotive noise and vibrations, not by roofing tape companies.
The foil on our CLD damping mat Damplifier is more than 3 times as thick than that of most roofing products and it will never melt off and cause you any headache.
How much CLD sound deadening do I need to use in my car to properly sound deaden the vibrations?
When it comes to automotive sound deadener and CLD vibration damping mats. more is always better, to a certain point. Covering the flat panels of your cars interior sheet metal panels with as little as 25 percent will help reduce harmonic distortion in the cars sheet metal, however in many cases, as much as 50 or 100 percent CLD sound deadening coverage might be required, depending on the intensity of the audio system or how loud the road noise, engine noise and exhaust drone is.
Applying a MLV noise barrier like our Luxury Liner or Luxury Liner Pro on top of your CLD sound deadener will more that tripple the sound deadening results from your CLD Damplifier application.
Why does Damplifier Pro not come on a roll like your less expensive Sound deadening competition mats do?
Here is an industry secret. Products that come on rolls are roof tapes relabeled as CLD sound deadener mats. There is not a sound deadening manufacturer in the industry that puts CLD constraint layer dampers on a roll. Real sound deadening vibration damper mats will always come in sheets. If it is on a roll, it is not designed as a sound deadener. It came from a roofing manufacturer and was not designed to dampen vibrations in a car. There is no exception to this rule.

When it comes to automotive vibrtaion damping and sound deadening, Second Skin Damplifier is the best automotive CLD (constraint layer damper) in its class. No other CLD vehicle sound deadener is as afordable as Second Skin Damplifier. No other automotive sound deadener competes at this price point, and no other noise damping CLD mat to date, has a more proven track record for sound & noise reduction in automobiles!
