I observed that the thickness of the glass in the windows and the windshield also makes a lot of difference.The swift has pretty thin side glass windows compared to the siena/palio,hence road noise etc is more apparent.
well if your floor / firewall is damped it sure helps.

How Much bass increase can I expect to get with a Dynamat Trunk Kit?
While results vary from vehicle to vehicle and depend greatly on the installation, typical results have yielded a 3dB increase in Sound Pressure Level (SPL) bass output from a normal installation.
Actually i think if there is SPL increase of 3db it might be because when the car is damped it wont let the air / sound pressure escape. So the level will increase inside the cabin as it will be kind of sealed cabin.

Well going back to the topic a normal user might not need damping in a car like Getz if he has an average system. Were as in swift the same thing would require damping over a period of time.

I totally disagree here that was my point. How can you define that a person needs damping or not. It is a owners choice and yes damping helps.

@ zero critical there are only 2-3 small parts which needs to be damped!!

if i need more i will buy simple

the main concern for me is to get rid of the rattling from those points first ...

am little happy today..

found that Blaupunkt dimensions are Height x Width x Depth (mm): 49x190x426

and dimensions of JBL 1004 are (L x W x H) 18-9/16" x 10-3/8" x 2-1/8"

so i think can come easily go under the current location i.e co-driver seat and i can hide it from my parents
