If I may be permitted, I would like to ask the following question again:

does damping have any disadvantages? i.e. in terms of things like loss of warranty, fire hazard etc.

Thanks Gunbir. I do not have any vibration from the door and the sound quality is good.

Thanks. The knocking test is useful information. I meant to say the stock doors are good enough.

Default Dynamat Extreme - all five doors in my Wagon R - how much should it cost?

Hi folks,

With all the vibrations in my Wagon R, I am thinking of putting Dynamat Extreme on all 5 doors of my Wagon R (my front speakers are in the dash though). How much should it cost? I asked the car accessory shop - and all the places here had no clue. Finally found one installer who has done the job before, but they said the sheets would cost 4000/- . Is the price fair? What do I ensure for proper application of Dynamat?

Dynamat extreme is expensive but works great. at 4K per door it wil cost you 20K do get your car done (al 5 doors). why not consider cheaper alternates.

Dear Navinji,

Which would be cheaper alternatives? Please give me some names and I can ask my vendor to order those.

Will I ever get an answer to this question?

does damping have any disadvantages? i.e. in terms of things like loss of warranty, fire hazard etc.

How is the build quality of Indica ? I recently got all the rattles 'fixed'.
Is damping required for an average ICE ?

IMO, damping is not required for average ICE. It is necessary only when music is played loud. Unless the speakers are amplified and/or a sub is present, damping would be seldom required.

I don't think warranty would be void and I'm sure there could be no fire hazards due to damping material.

One issue that I can think of is that you'll have to play your system at lower volumes or lower window glasses, since small-time horns wouldn't be heard. It is all about being responsible in traffic and crowded areas.

Not really raghu, most of the frequencies of that nature are coming through the glass are and through openings/gaps. So damping would do little to curb that.

Another little question :

@Gunbirji I saw that you use closed cell foam in many of your installs, How good is it ? Can it be done as a DIY job ?

I think I am going to go ahead with damping of my 4 doors + hatch door on my Wagon R. I am going to get 1 or 2 Dynamat Extreme door kits (@4k each) initially. Now my front speakers (GTO427) are mounted on the dash - and not on the door, and my rear speakers in small boxes in the boot (The subwoofer is also in the boot). Given this scenario, how much difference will damping make?

I know for one that I must start with the boot door because that one really vibrates when the sub is going. I am thinking of getting one door kit initially and starting off with the boot and front doors.

Also, this is essentially going to be a DIY job with a little help from the car accessory guy (with opening/closing door panels). No one here has done this job before or knows how to do it, so what steps do I take to ensure I do the job the best possible way?

help.

It would, vebmetal. I have been looking high and low for Wuerth, but no luck. So got to buy whatever is available. That too from Kolkata - shuvd is helping me with it.
