Made in the US. Potent Stuff. Does it's job. Can't beat a good damping mat.

Some may argue that it's an undercoat spray not deadener, but the fact is, since it's a dense rubberized mixture, it goes a long way to remove vibration and resonances from metals/ plastics. Hence it's used as a engine/ road noise isolator, in addition to its corrosion prevention properties. So you can't expect it to absorb vibration caused by kilowatts of bass, but handy in tight corners where the sole idea is to take the natural resonance frequency, of the part concerned, higher. That is the idea of damping anyway!

adding mass usually lowers the resonant freq. and increases the ammount of energy stored (just ask B&W and Celestion) but this stuff works anwyay, just not becuase it added mass. It PROBABLY works becuase

a) involves using 2 materials that are well bonded but of same density
b) being just a bit elastic it absorbs resonances of the metal

so navin ji will this rubber based solution will help in damping the door in tight corners where sheets cant go....

KB sir here are a few pics of the same the tweeter is flush mounted into the a-pillar and the mid range is down low near the midbass. and the midbass is in the stock location. this is right now not in a correct position. and will be changing it soon as some suggestions pour in....also the damping of the door has to be done. PHEW a lot of work has still to be done.....but they are sounding great......

Get the mids up on the door LBM... around midway between the midbass and the tweeter- all in a line.. I read that is much better...

ya man i wanted to do like that but i have two problem first the wire which i have to pass throught the door is a huge problem i am using AR wire and the gauge is 16 it is thick wire and is not passing through easily . also there is a connector which does not allow the wire to pass in the body throught which all the wire of the door are passing.To make 2 set of wires pass i would have to make a hole in the car body to let the wires pass through....

secondly the midrange is so big that i cannot flush mount it on the door i have to make it fit with the aluminium rings with which i am fit it right now...

also the main place from which i got infulenced (as these are not the final locations) and installed them in these location are....






these pics are from scott buwalda who won the isaca championship with these iridiums.....

Agreed... But see how flush Scotts install is... different and ROOMIER car too... I think careless passengers can play havoc with something that protrudes so much in the footwell of a Swift!!

then to fir okay... Still try out the other options and see if it sounds better... another spot being up on the A pillar next to your tweets... have seen that too in a lot of installs too... no harm in testing various positions out

I also wanted that but sala midrange ka size is to big. the outside dia is 4.7 inch (120 mm ) it is to big to install on the dash the most practical place is the door where is can half depth flush mount it so that the window mirror does not coincide with the midrange. or there is a second option. to bring down the tweeter down to the midrange and make a kick panel on the each side acomodating the midrange and the tweeter. will try both of them before finalizing as both. and will be requiring the expert comments from the other people on this forum to help me decide........

You're right about mass lowering the resonance frequency. What I meant to say was that the added stiffness, and increase in c/s thickness would take it higher, since mass addition would be lower relative to that. Yeah, but that's quite confusing, and debatable. But even to touch, the amount of vibration transmitted to the metal sections is greatly reduced.

LBM,

Nice work. With present midrange location it will sound better if you go active (using your H701) and also tilting the midrange will help a lot. Ideally install it in the door if you want to run passive.
