@ gears: damping is done on the doors to filter out the exterior noise so that you can enjoy your music more & also to filter out the vibrations of the door panels caused by high end speakers & subwoofers.

damping sheets are available by many brands such as noise kill, dynamat, etc.

yes gears, damping does help if you are that keen on a perfect sound. rates vary & it can cost you around Rs. 5k for full car damping which includes all doors & boot.

as vibhor suggested, if you wanna discuss more, lets do that on a new thread.

Does damping help when we install powerfull ICE or does it help to reduce the rattles of the car during normal driving when ICE is not in use. in one sentence - is damping a part of ICE installation, or general car modification?

Its a part of ICE installation, The sound doesn't goes out to a larger extent , & instead gives you better sound quality with no rattles when Amp & Sub is installed.

@ rijish: its basically a part of ICE but it also helps in reducing rattles to some extent & also reduces outer noise inside the cabin.

Installation with damping!![surprise]
what does this mean???[confused]
Damping is sound dreadning material designed to scatter the sound and prevents it from reaching of the damped metal object.

Thanks a ton Raj! But does it really helps to reduce noise?? Whats the cost of it??
There will be a noticeable difference of up to 60-70%
Cost wise this material starts from anything about Rs.150/- sq.ft.
Damping sheets available:

When installing a Hi-End ICE in the car this stuff becomes mandatory,by skipping this you will invite alots of rattling and distortion in the Sound Quality of music in the car.

Nothing related to any kind of car modification.

True to your words [cheers]

The basic funda to do damping sound dreadning is to get more cleaner sound from your speakers/subwoofers.

Again just by doing damping does not mean i will remove the rattling sound,one should install it properly with a roller or heat-gun or it will fall from the place in like 4-6months.

Application:Clean the surface area where the damping is needed,just use the heat gun and blow some warm air over the affected area,peel the damping sheet.Apply it and press it like a sticker and use a roller or roll a cloth and press it with your hands and apply heat gun let it get cool and DONE!!!
