finally, a need for damping has arrived, after 4 months of my ICE install. i have started hearing vibrating sounds from civic from the rear parcel shelf and the front co-passenger door. need help, i see Noisekill to be the best option.
i got my ICE installed from DRIVEN, east of kailash. i think they have noisekill. what is the cost like and how much do you think i'll need to damp the front 2 doors and rear parcel shelf of civic. i don't want to go overboard with it, just to reduce those annoying rattles.

Noisekill retails for 150/sq ft.

Mind you if your only objective is to get rid of rattles then you can get away with damping just a few bits where the plastic trim/plank is causing the sound. Even foam or other jugaad methods will work.

thanks... souljah for the suggestions. i am not getting enough mid bass from the front compos, so as suggested by many t-bhpians, i am planning to get damping done on the front doors to get better sound as the doors act as a enclosure for the speakers, right. due to the sub in the boot, the rear parcel shelf vibrates like hell, so want to get it damped too.
i want to know how much noisekill would i require for the front doors+rear parcel shelf.
i am new to this stuff, so would damping really help with vibrations and rattles.

Maybe you can check with B&T ? Id say get atleast 30 sq ft to start with.

For the swift I used about 50sq ft, it was worth it. Though I could definitely use another 50sq ft in there easily

5k would mean approx 33 sq. ft. of Noise Kill.

Dynamat Xtreme Bulk Pack which is 36 sq. ft. is for Rs. 18000/-

How much Dynamat and which one (original/ xtreme) are you getting?

looks like sachits got the quote for chinese Dynamat.

@sanchits

if you getting Dynamat Extreme for your civic then its ok as other Dynamat variants are not much effective compared to the cost.

In that case go to Noisekill or Fonomat or Wurth all of them are VFM and serve the purpose well.

Default dymanat extreme 20sq

guys, got my car tints from elegance in gurgaon. they also had dynamat extreme. so got a quote of genuine dynamat extreme 20sqft pack for 9k including installation. do you think its worthwile spending that much for dynamat or should i go for noisekill, i mean is it as good. for noisekill i dont want to spend more than 5k. cause civic is well built, i just want to cut out the rattles and vibrations. so, would 5k be enough for noisekill or is it worth spending 9k for dynamat.

Default is NoiseKill the best budget recomendation ?

At 150/sq.ft is NoiseKill the best option ( in terms of budget v/s performance )
How much sq.ft would be required in an Innova and is it only to be used in the 4 doors ?

@Navin: Heatlon (the foam lookalike) is to be put below the bonnet right?

Query - Is it possible to remove damping material like NoiseKill? Can it be scraped off or would any cleaning solution work?

Default Sound Dampening/Deadening...

Hi Guys...

This is a question regarding products like Dynamat.

Does Dynamat have any competition in India, possibly something which is reasonably priced?

Has this product been developed in India yet?

Thanks in advance
