Foam sound deadening products

Looking for some experience... I want to work on killing some road noise in my Regal. It has a ton of factory open cell foam in the floors that is pretty effective but not quite ideal.

I'm going to do a layer of hushmat on the floors, it's partially done along with my front doors, rear deck and trunk. I want to add some foam to that.

Most of the car audio specific deadeners are very expensive, especially when you start talking about doing a whole car... The only benefit I see them having is being adhesive.

So, experiences with using ensolite, volara, neoprene, hushmat foam, dynamat foam, whatever are welcome. Also, I haven't had much luck trying to find the non-car ones in Canada and I'd rather not mail order from the USA if possible if anyone can steer me in the right direction.

Neoprene is WAAAAY overpriced at a place like that because they aren't used to people wanting 10 years of it lol.

Never seen a foam material at a roofing place, what would they stock it for?

I've tried "the foam store" and they just look at me funny :freak:

I think ensolite is the way to go if I can get an ok price... maybe will just order from RAAMaudio worst come to worst.

Neoprene?

It's looking like ensolite from raamaudio is probably a lot cheaper.
