DIY Dampening
Ok have seen dynamat, cascade, etc. Jus wanna know if there are materials i can use that would work the same way as these dampening kits do.

You can use:

1) Bitumen layers that are used on rooftops
2) Rockwool
3) Rubber sheets 5mil

I have used the above triple combination with excellent results. These products are also very cheap to obtain.

I have used stick on floor tiles. Use the drop test to select. Drop it and find the deadest one.

Don't you want to say damping... dampening means to get something wet (ie you could just throw water on it :))

Makes sense. Although a cascade is quite common in dampening events.

actually its the other way around :D

You could also try using flashband, its aluminum on one side and some sort of tar substance on the other side.

Lowes and I believe HD sell something in the Roofing section called Peel and Seal. Its I believe still $15 for 15 sq ft., and while slightly thinner than Dynamat, etc, it's so cheap you can do multiple layers on the cheap and it works JUST as well.

I don't think so ... the meaning we are using here is the last definition #5 Physics

Thanx for the help guys and spelling corrections :D > But my setback is that these items might not be available in hardware stores down here (Caribbean). I'll have to hunt a bit.....
