How Much Sound deadener needed for door?

As title states I Own a 1995 DCM work In progress, Going thru a whole audio overhaul. I am having some 6.5 image dynamics and want to get some either fatmat or raamat in there. I dont want to buy too much so I was hoping a forum member knew exactly how much was needed for doors.

That's because everyone is thinking the same thing as this:

Get out your friggin' tape measure and figure it out.

Plus, you don't say - 2 doors, 4 doors, front, back, buying a roll or squares, etc. OK, it's probably 2 front doors, but "a whole audio overhaul" could mean anything.

According the www.sounddeadenershowdown.com could get away with as little as 25% coverage if you put the deadener in the middle of the panel and some behind the speaker, if cost is really a consideration. Personally I plan on doing about 75% with deadener in the doors because they are a major noise source, I also plan on 99.9% coverage with a sound barrier for sound isolation which makes my music sound better.
