Dynamat s197 door panel
I will soon be deadening the door panels in my 2006 and I wanted to know how to do it. Do I remove all of the plastic? Do I cover the wires to a certain extent? I've looked everywhere so far and cannot find the answer. Please help. Thanks.

you will need to remove the door panels as well as the thinner plastic vapor barrier to get to the metal to attach it too. As for brands I used dynamat in my mustang, and a newer and imo better brand called second skin in my truck. The second skin is thicker and just better in almost everyway. The entry level stuff is the same as dynamat extreme and the damplifier pro blows it away.
I did my truck more recently and took a little more time in sound damping to take care of road noise and rattles. I put a couple of strips of the material on the inside of the door skin to attach the thin skin to the metal door frame. In one of the pics you can see the silver damping(not dampENing) material inside the holes inside the door. After that I then used 1/4" closed cell foam(second skin as well) on top of the damplifier to give one more barrier to stop road/tire noise. After that was done I then put a solid later to cover all the holes in the doors that the vapor barrier use to cover. This will help to make an enclosure out of the door and seperate the forward and reverse sound waves and make a HUGE difference.
I assume that the baffle/enclosure in the mustangs door? it is a piece of mdf that allows the 6.5" speaker to mount into the factory 5 x 7" speaker hole. The enclosure is nothing more then reinforced tupperware(with the sound damping), but it does the job of both keeping the woofer dry and making a sealed enclosure to help the bass/mid-bass.
