In the recent past a lot of emphasis is given for the overall weight reduction of the sound package used in the vehicles. The paper presents a study of one of such materials used in the automotive market. The dash panel is a primary area for the engine noise transmission to the cabin. Hence the material selection of the dash inner acoustic insulation is critical. In the conventional method a barrier (EVA) and a decoupler (foam) is used. In the conventional design the surface weight of the barrier has to be substantially high for the dash insulation to perform effectively and hence adds to more weight. In the present application of light weight material also known as dual density absorbers and barrier is used for the dash acoustic insulator. The study reveals the good acoustic performance of the light weight dash mat in terms of passenger cabin noise reduction and improved sound quality along with weight reduction.
