Default trunk insulation

Is there any thing other than dynomat or similar products, that I can use for trunk insulation? Some like heavy rubber of some sort.

Before, me and my brother went to home depot and bought some of the thick rubber insulation for underneath carpets and it worked better then dynamat... the cooling isn't the same because it doesnt have an aluminum layer, but if you have subs it sounds deeper and stops the rattles. I think to do the whole trunk of a 2000 buick regal cost about 25-35 bucks.


call home depot or go... don't say you want it for your trunk, they won't know what your talking about, lol
