50 mil -> 1.27 mm
80 mil -> 2.032 mm

Mil is a american unit. One mil is equal to .001 inch. In terms of damping thicker is better but the adhesive should hold its weight also.

Thou (unit of length) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Noisekill is easy as drinking appy fizz no

Jokes apart its really simple and the adhesive doesnt need any heating too.

etc ....

Just trying to identify max bang for buck, since I'm on a budget right now.

@LBM, I gathered as much. What I was trying to ask was, given a limited amount of damping material, that is not enough for all 3 panels, what would be the priority?

Does one need damping just if you install a sub, or with only 6x9s as well?

Its nothing like you need it. It adds to the overall listening experience as the rattling etc are gone. These can be used either with 6 X 9 or sub or 6" or even without ICE.

I use Xtremedead 80 mils in my car and am kinda satisfied with the front doors, but yes need to redo the boot.

Do it after you have install the subs that to after 1-2 weeks usage as lots of thing rattle after that.
