So, I have already bought 16 sq/ft's worth of sound proofing, that should just about take care of the boot floor, I was just wondering if these would do a good job at sound proofin ... well, I'm doing it for better audio quality mainly, sooooo, with it being acoustic foam will it help that?

All opinions appreciated ...

Sorry???

You've just purchased 16 square foot of sound proofing foam, and you want to know if it would help with soundproofing?

Clue is in the name, I think :lol

I belive Dynamat do a spray for awkward areas such as the inside of doors etc. Never been that bothered about sound quality in the car, maybe someone who is might venture an opinion...

No. dynamat works by disrupting the resenence of the material.. this stuff just absorbs it if it's in a cavity or something.
