any soundproofing guru here?

I'm starting to get pissed off with the humming sound of the tyres intruding into the cabin. how do i insulate the wheel wells without spending a bomb?

how about firewall soundproofing? anyone done this before? engine sound is quite intrusive above 2000rpm. unfortunately this is where my rpm usually hovers at, most of the time above...

aiya... thinking of changing car already, not even one year yet... soundproofing so lousy...

You still using the stock tyre? If you are, then change to better tyres, more comfort and definitely a lot lot quieter.

no offense chkwong, but my friend's vios is using the exact same tires - Goodyear Eagle NCT5 185/55/R15. tyre sound intrusion into the cabin is far less obvious there, how does toyota insulate the sound? small rocks, water splashes & gravel hitting the wheel wells sounds very amplified in Accent, what is missing in Accent's wheel wells?

i'm looking for a one-off solution here, changing tyres seems like a workaround rather than solution.

then maybe the cost of the car tells the insulation is included? Laughing

Well, David has a good point. The price tells the insulation.

Proton...every inch of the car will have sound...think bout it?

A little DIY will help a lot to insulate the car.

what i'm thinking now is, if i spend a few thousands on insulating this car, it would as good or better than vios. i noticed that most of the sound is echoing from the side sills of the floor board.

i'm thinking of going autofoam by end of this month. an ultimate package plus some firewall insulation should fix the problem. after that might be thinking of door panels' insulation.

or maybe just balik kampung and drive into a tank of boiling latex, then let it dry up. what do you guys think? brilliant eh? hahaha....

i just got a quotation of RM800 for Dynamat Extreme. Insulation includes 4 doors, floor & roof.
Installation would require 1 to 2 days, and removal of carpets, upholstery etc.

Address:

ON COST Automart Sdn Bhd
322 Jalan C.Y. Choy, 10300 Penang

Questions:

1) Is this price reasonable?

2) how do I know it's the real Dynamat Extreme?

3) what other concerns should i be aware of for such an installation job?

hi ropai,

one thing to remind you is that you have to carefully watch how they do it, some people just simply detach and attach the carpet that later didn't have a good finishing.

best luck to you! Laughing
