    Soundproofing

    Ok, I've had enough!

    I'm sick to death of my door panels rattling while I've got my tunes bumping and buzzing.

    It only seems to be the window winders and the locking mechanism that do it, but I know if I soundproof the doors then they won't do it anymore.

    How many boxes of dynamat do you think would be adequate to cover only the front doors in my 4 door Mk3 Astra? as the back ones don't vibrate as they have no speakers in them.

    Do you think that putting a ring of dynamat behind the speakers only would make a big difference or should I do the whole door, even if just for road noise reduction..?

    Cheers guys!
    97 P reg Astra 1.6 8v X16SZR, and yes I have a Haynes manual

    One roll per door will pretty much cover the entire outer skin with one layer, so depends how dead you want them.

    don't forget to heat the Dynamat up when you apply it, worth investing in one of the rollers, DIY shops ell similar rollers I think

    I have used edead on mine and it seemed to do the same sort of job and its cheaper. visit www.edaudio.com
    Or look on ebay for edead. Its the same company.

    Hope this helps

    I used a product called Ivanhoe on the doors of my coupe. I did the outer skin and both sides of the inner skin. Worked a treat, but for that I used 3 roles (100x60cm) per door.

    Perhaps try just the inner side of the inner skin to start with and see if it helps.

    Have a loook over yonder:

    The second link has some excellent info if you care to read through the lot..

    Good luck..
