Mustang Dynamat Xtreme Speaker Kit Installation Instructions

1. Having properly installed Dynamat can make a huge difference in the quality of sound within a vehicle. That especially applies to applications like the one featured here, where a heavy speaker is mounted to a plastic form does not include any structural steel to keep the panel and speaker stationary. Installing the Mustang Dynamat 10415 Xtreme Speaker Kit will keep the panels from flexing and deaden any “humming” or “buzzing” noises.

2. To begin, open your Dynamat product. Notice that it comes with manufacturer instructions, though these instructions are way better.

3. If the part receiving the Dynamat is already installed on your Mustang, remove it and prepare the surface using an oil free cleaner. In this case, we are installing the Dynamat on a brand new Mustang kick panel with speaker opening, so we did not need to remove anything and just prepared the surface.

4. Lay paper or cardboard against the kick panel and trace the shape to create a template for the Dynamat.

5. Trace the template’s shape onto the Dynamat kit for Mustang speakers and cut the Dynamat following the tracing.

6. Once you've laid the Dynamat onto the kick panel to insure you cut it right, peel the brown covering off of the back of the Dynamat and start attaching it to the kick panel by pressing down in the center, then continue pressing down, moving in an outward motion to keep trapped air bubbles at a minimum.

7. Use a hand roller to work out air bubbles and help the product adhere to the surface of the kick panel. You can use the Mustang Dynamat professional heavy duty hand roller, or you can find a cheap one at a hardware store for working with wallpaper or linoleum.

8. When I tapped on my kick panel before applying the Dynamat, the plastic piece seemed thin and moved easier than desired. After applying the Dynamat, the kick panel became more rigid and tapping on the plastic is more like a solid “thud” noise.
