That soundproofing you mention is just to dampen the engine sound only...
You can really hear the difference before and after but you have to stand outside of your car lar . Other then that if you complaint about tyre noise or wind noise that 88 bucks of your cant do much about it man...

If your really serious of getting good sound quality for your ICE, go for the dynamat for your door panels but expensive lar.. cost about RM300 /2doors.

We cant run away from all the noise but we can cover it over with good ICE system

just a gentle reminder to those who wish to install sound proof on 4-doors in KBSC.

just make sure they install it and paste it properly. go and inspect it. otherwise it will peel/drop off easily.

yesterday, as my wife wind up the window after talking to my friends, the sound insulation (which stick inside the door) sticks to the window and pull it together up... until around 30cm of the insulation length is exposed. it almost jam the window and it raining time (starting).

due to lose trust in KBSC, i DIY by opening the door panel and rectified it myself. to my horror, almost 2 out of 3 pieces of sound insulation have already peel off from it. The top insulation have already peel almost half and it drop and stick to the window. the other one already drop and hang on the bottom.

no wonder why the outside noise - getting louder lately. i installed the insulation @ Jln 223 around 1 year ago. when i check it, found that they didnt stick properly. they just barely stick it.

so guys, please check when you have time. you dont want to end up like my case... insulation stick onto your window and get winded up together. worst case, spoil your remote window.

Hi people,

I notice the pieces supplied by KBSC is small therefor what I'm going to share with you is for those who like to DIY.

You can get HESOVI sheets from shops selling aircond parts and it cost less then RM20 per sheet. You will need around 4 sheets but get 1 more in case you make mistakes.

From there you can actually have a whole sheet to cover the inner door panel and have a better sound proofing. You just need to peel off the plastic sheet and then cut according to the plastic sheet. But you've to cut it a little smaller and need to cut certain edges off cause of the door panel cover.

When you have one side done, you can actually flip it over and cut according to the shape already. To make the HESOVI sheet stick, you can either use a 3M Heavy Duty Double Sided tape (I find it much better than other brands) on certain parts.

You have a choice if to stick it on or under the plastic cover. (My advice, under plastic cover is better) When you've align the HESOVI sheet, you have to cut a lot of holes for the screws,rods,wires etc. (this will take a bit more time)

Before you screw the door panel back make sure both sheets are fully covered and seal (you may need to buy the soft glass sealent which is the black sticky soft stuff from any car spare part shop)

Cut certain holes bigger if the door can't fit back in cause of the screw holes. If can fit nicely, then just screw back the door panel.

Voila! You'll have a full door covered with HSV!

PS: if you need help, can come over to my place and I'll help you out. Can handle it as a group also Smile

Hi guys,

The last time i opened the door plastic cover, i saw that the metal surface is not smooth at all. How do you guys manage to put those dynamat stuff there? Plus rain water seeps in, how does it manage to stay there?

Reason I ask is that I already put a layer of insulation sandwiched between the plastic panel and the inside metal layer but it did not improve much. The insulation I put is the black greenish cotton like fibre material.

Also, the road noise and engine noise is highly intrusive. Anyone here insulate the firewall?

thanks

Add: Note that I'm using 15" Michelin PP2 50 series. Does it help if I change it to 55 series?

the other way - follow what KBSC is doing. they will stick 3 pieces of insulation inside the door frame. on the outer door frame between the panel and the metal, they will cover it with another layer of insulation.
