Interior sound deadening

Does anyone know what the best material is to use for sound-deadening inside the car?

There is a whole myriad of products that different people have had varying degrees of success with. Ceramic paint on insulation is a good sound and heat barrier, followed by some aluminized self stick material (peel and seal). On the floor in addition to the two mentioned steps I would also add a layer of double backed aluminized jute material before the carpet. You can go with the car specific stuff and spend a small fortune or you can do some searching on this site and save a bunch of money with home type products.

Here is one good thread.

Also check out this site. This stuff works great and is reasonably priced.

I've found cardboard works great for sound dampening, only problem is you cant get the stuff wet, and the more you step/beat on it it will mush tear and just all in all turn to crap.
