Has anyone applied sound deadening/dampening mat to their X, what did they use, were they happy, and how long ago did they do it? (how is it holding up)?

I used Raammat BXT (www.raamaudio.com) on the doors and floor, all the way back to and including the cargo area and rear wheel wells. Basically covered the entire thing!

The Raammat was very easy to install because it can be worked at room temperature (no need to heat it to bend it, etc.). Basically you cut what you need, peel off the wax paper, and stick the black sticky stuff directly on the sheet metal.

The X is super easy to take apart, you can have the doors off, the seats gone, the side panels removed in the cargo area, and the carpet/flooring gone in under an hour. I had the X completely down to sheet metal to run wiring, so I decided to throw Rammat in while it was taken apart since my roommate had a couple rolls sitting around he wasn't gonna use after all.

I've been very satisfied with the stuff - road noise was cut down significantly and putting it on the doors has reduced rattles from the speakers (I have Infinity reference 6x9 up front and 6.5 in rear).

You can get an entire roll of Raammat for $120 and that was enough to do the ENTIRE X - doors, floor, cargo, wheel wells. Getting enough Dynamat for that would cost a small fortune.

I applied mine at the beginning of summer and it's holding up great - the adhesive is quality stuff.

I hear great things about raammat. you got one 62.5 sq ft roll of raammat bxt and did the whole x? floor and all? geez, the floor alone would be 4'x10', or 40 sq ft...

I'm glad to hear you've had a good experience though, let us know if it ever loses it's adhesiveness :)!

Another brand to consider: http://www.b-quiet.com/

I've used the Brown Bread before. Excellent stuff! A lot of the camaro/firebird guys used it and were very happy with it.
