Now the main difference between the STP Silver and i-COPPER i-D9 of comparable 2mm thickness, is that STP uses silver.

The other difference between the 2mm sheets and the 7mm i-COPPER i-D5 sheets that I could make out is that the i-D5 sheets come with a layer of foam. How important is this layer of foam?.
I am sure there is no real silver or copper in any of these packs. Most of them have an aluminum backing.

Get the pack with the 5mm of foam. If you want to understand more about this google "Constrained Layer Damping". The foam in this case helps a lot.

Hope this helps.

You can also look at Dampmat.

How is your experience with Dampmat exceed? I am looking to damp doors and spare tire floor area in my car.

Also, though it's about 2years since you did installation, can you please share the cost of Dampmat Exceed that you paid. This will be a good reference point for me.

These damping materials are opaque, and to be used on metal sheets. Not on glass. These will not be suitable for your requirement.

If you are facing noise due to vehicles, then suggest to check on sound-proofing ( non-automotive). You could try heavier glass in the windows, and thick curtains.

Good double glazing, as I have seen in houses on busy roads in UK, cuts out a lot of noise. Also a good insulator

Hi

Wanted to know how audio being heard outside of the car can be controlled.

At a very low volume of about 12 or so the sound is very audible outside on the Honda Amaze. Itís got two layers of STP damping.

I have experience on previous cars like Volkswagen and Tata that at least till the volume peaks past 18 or so does people outside make out what is played.

What can actually be done to contain the sound within the car at such low volume levels. I do understand the car is very flimsy, but feels even an old Hyundai Santro was better at this part.
