Not necessarily. If you use Dynamat, go with Super or Extreme for any upside down surfaces or vertical surfaces. Original for flat or horizontal surfaces.

The difference between Dynamat and other brands is the adhesive properties. Even Dynamat products have different adhesives which is why I reccomend Extreme all around.

As a former Dynamat regional rep I have displays of the stuff compared to its competitors, its not all the same stuff. In this case you get what you pay for. We also hold seminars showing our dealers and installers the differences between competitor products. Cascade is the only other stuff out there I would personally reccomend, but it costs considerably more. Rammat is an alternative that Ive heard alot about but never worked with.

I'll try to get a pic of a trunklid uploaded this weekend for you. I drive a Dynamat demo vehicle, and built several of them for the company.

I have one layer of Brown Bread in my trunk, doors, rear panels, and hatch lid. Not a lot of sound outside the car whatsoever. Definitely no rattles.

Brownbread is cheaper than Dynamat and does the same job, so I would recommend it. I don't see how the adhesive properties are different, I've used both, they are basically tar and rubber and will both stick to anything. I run my car in winter and summer and never had a problem. And I have it upside down and on the sides.

If you need to use different kinds of Dynamat for upside down and vertical surfaces, that just means that they don't put any quality into their Original product and overcharge for their Extreme. Brown Bread works on ANY surface at ANY angle.

And I am not a Brown Bread rep ;)
