    Nice work there Mohan,

    So what is the exact role of that white dampening material which was put earlier and on top the 3M sheets? Hopefully you need to make sure the SC guys put it back properly when the door is serviced due to some faults n the future.

    Mohan, whats the cost of 3M dampening material for 4 doors? does it make a noticeable difference in road noise? also is it the best quality dampening available locally?

    satya has always been a very dependable guy. I usually go to him only for any such work and recommend others too.

    Zen, the name says it all, This foam dampening material reduces the road noise coming into the car and reduces jarring of speakers at higher volumes by covering the hollow parts of the door.

    The 3m dampening material i have used is an adhesive so its stuck to the doors.. can be tricky if any work is needed to be done later on...

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    We can PM regarding the costs :) i dont want anyone in my family to find out ;)

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    I will PM you the exact cost once i get to know abt it myself cos this was given to me by aother source.. This material is not sold over the counter iat 3m stores.. One box contains 10 sheets and my car after the work one small piece is all that was left 4 doors and the boot section was dampened

    I feel this has made a lot of difference for the new upgraded setup. You need to sit in the car and feel the actual difference and yes this is the best dampening material out there.
    the doors are heavier and has a sweeter thud to it now :)

    Yes, he is the best when it comes to custom audio , gr8 work ethics and attention to detail work finish.

  6. Would love to taste your audio,I have a feeling the 3m damping sheets are better than dynamat or noise kill.
    The big question, how much mullah you spent eh?

    The damping that is done is on the door is to keep jarring away at high volumes. If the same mats are used for noise proofing, then it will work wonders. On the quality, 3m mats have better glue and sticks quite well, not too sure about dynamat on the quality front.

    On the moolah, the box of 10 sheets should be around 8000 mark. Though not entirely sure of the price. Availability is an issue though.

    We have used these sheets in Sunny to keep the road noise at bay. So can definitely tell they do a very good job of keeping the road noise low if applied at the correct places.

    Update after a long time - The Odo just crossed over the 7000kms mark on monday this week.

    And the AUDIO is just to be heard than explained.. No more traffic jam boredom and that annoying wind noise after 80kms from the mirrors.. Its not that i turn the volume high.. at normal listening volumes also, the only noise tht comes into the cabin is a bit of tyre noise and honks from other vehicles.
