Thanks Captain.

Which tyres would you recommend to handle the road noise? Right now, they are on stock BridgeStones. The car has done only 7000 KM so far so will look at changing the tyres sometime in future.

XM2's, MRF ZLO's, Yokohama Adrives,
If you really want a quiet ride then you can trade in your tyres even now,

Anyone tried damping an Innova Diesel ? Have a 2009 one, love it, but would like to get it damped from NVH perspective (not for ICE)

Read thru the whole thread (and other relevant ones), got a wealth of information, but not for innova specifically.

@DerAlte : anyone carrying this out at Bangalore, or will it have to be DIY

Cheers

Here's an Innova ICE thread that includes damping (for the ICE) but you may find it useful.

I spent ~1200/- for the bitumen sheet full roll (for the front doors I might have spent ~600/-), fevicol SR : 150/-, DIY effort, altogether ~750-800/- for the front doors and the result is far better damping than the commercial ones.
This sounds interesting :CMS:. How bitumen sheets are holding up, since its been more than a year. Can you post some pics of this DIY if you have them or at least picture of material used . Also kindly provide pointer to place in Bangalore where you bought them. Are they water proof?

My Figo Diesel is high on road and engine noise.Read though many posts here and looks like easiest way is mass loading the outermost door panel to reduce road noise.There are some wonderful explanations by DerAlt, thank you very much for that. I am not a audiophile, just need to kill road noise and engine noise for cheap. So i am confused between Bitumen or Yoga mat!

Check with the roofing insulation guys - you will find cheap bitumen (tar-felt) sheets. Some are aluminium faced, and some have glue backing. Search the thread - someone has also used tar-synthetic rubber material used for heat insulation.

I have used bitumen sheets in my car for almost 2 years now and no complaints. Only the part above the muffler had melted away and left a mess, so I would not advise you to use them anywhere near high heat sources such as exhaust piping, muffler and engine bay.

Alternatively, you can use closed cell foam sheets, 10mm on the insides of the door cards. I had used it with noisekill on the metal surface (and the closed cell foam sheets on the door cards) in my fusion tdci. The cabin became a place to chill out. The cabin became very very silent post the sheets fixation.

Hello Everyone,

I have a 2011 Diesel Swift Dzire. I have recently changed the tires to Michelin XM2 which has resulted in some improvement in the noise level.I want to make the cabin as silent as possible.

Can anyone suggest a place in Mumbai where I can get the damping done?what would be the approximate cost?

Thanks

Can anyone please help me with my query.

I learnt that dynamat extreme is one such product that can be used. Where can I purchase and install it in Mumbai? I have seen reference only to online purchase and DIY.

Also, are there any other product or service that You would recommend?

I would appreciate if someone can PM me the information if it's not okay to provide the information on this thread.

Dynamat is available on amazon.com with shipping to India and at times the better car audio shops in santa cruz have it in stock and sell it at idiotic prices. Alternatively they also have the local substitute called Dampmat which is also pretty good and far cheaper. Then there is noise kill which is best avoided.

Khoj, Appreciate your prompt response.

Is dynamat extreme the best solution to reduce cabin noise. I don't need it for ice setup but only to reduce the cabin noise. What would be the size required for a swift dzire (old).

If not dynamat extreme, does underbody treatment helps to reduce the noise level?

Default Re: Queries in 'Ask the gurus' section

I have a question regarding sound deadening. I would like to sound deaden my cars front doors.

My question, Is it beneficial to sound deaden both the Inner side of the door and the metal slab in between the plastic cladding and door as well? or would sound deadening simply the Inner side of the door suffice?
If there is a difference, How big would it be to 'double' deaden the doors in this fashion?

Thanks : ).

I drive a 2009 Hyundai Verna. While playing music the front door speakers rattles a lot. Can this be avoided by damping the doors? If so what will be the approximate cost of materials required?
