At only a 1/4 inch thick, DB Sniper™ is the premier automotive sound barrier insulation to block road noise in your vehicle. DB Sniper™ is a composite automotive sound barrier engineered to block and reflect high-energy, low-frequency road noise and airborne sound across a wide frequency range of 200 MHz or lower. It consists of a closed-cell neoprene foam layer bonded to a dense vinyl barrier. The neoprene foam layer creates an “air-spring” that floats on the dense layer of vinyl. This allows for the proprietary vinyl to reflect high-energy sound waves. It also prevents the same sound energy from passing through the dense layer, creating a “floating sound shield.” Use DB Sniper™ on floorpans, firewalls, trunk floors, package trays, rear panels of truck cabs and the trunk/cargo area. DB Sniper™ car sound insulation performs best when it can be used on flat panels or panels with gentle curves and bends. You would need 4-6 layers of vibration dampening sheets to equal the performance of DB Sniper™. Not only would that increase the cost and installation time, but it would dramatically increase weight added to the vehicle. Save yourself a lot of time, money and hassle by using dedicated “floating” car sound insulation like DB Sniper™.

Tools:

• Scissors or utility knife                                            • Isopropyl alcohol, pre-paint cleaner, or other non residue cleaner
• Tape measure                                                         • Poster board or heavy paper (optional)
• Straight edge ruler                                                 • Spray adhesive (optional 3M’s Super Trim or Super 77)
• Carb spray or your favorite cleaner/degreaser     • db Shield or high quality duct tape (like Gorilla brand)


Tips:

  1. db Sniper is designed to be used on flat, semi-flat, and gently curved surfaces, for surfaces with several irregularities like a door panel, consider using a product like db Shield.
  2. Take a moment to measure the surface to be treated to make sure you have enough db Sniper available to complete the installation.
  3. Be patient – Performance of db Sniper is greatly affected by your attention to detail

Installation ( Horizontal surfaces - floor pans, trans tunnels, trunks, wheel wells):

  1. db Sniper is designed to be installed on flat or gently curved surfaces that do not require a barrier material to conform (floor pans, transmission tunnels, etc.).
  2. In some cases, the pad that exists beneath an automotive carpet kit can be used as a template for the db Sniper.
  3. Take note of the locations such as seat belt bolts, wire harnesses and seat mounting holes.
  4. Measure the surface to be treated then transfer these measurements to the vinyl side of the db Sniper product. If you have poster board or paper use it to make a template and then transfer design to the vinyl side of db Sniper.
  5. Install db Sniper into position and make sure it will not impede the proper operation of any mechanical components.
  6. It is not necessary to glue db Sniper in place when installed onto the floor pan. If you wish to do so, use the spray adhesive now. After making sure you have adequate ventilation, apply a coat of spray adhesive to the body panel, and one coat to the foam side of the db Sniper. Allow to get tacky, then press firmly in place.
  7. You can tape the seams of db Sniper with db Shield or duct tape.
  8. Done!

Installation (Vertical surfaces- rear panel of truck cab, firewall, roof):

  1. Measure the surface to be treated then transfer these measurements to the vinyl side of the db Sniper product. If you have poster board or paper use it to make a template and then transfer design to the vinyl side of db Sniper.
  2. Be sure to clean the surface of the body panel(s) by cleaning and degreasing them. Give the panel one final wipe with isopropyl alcohol, pre-paint cleaner, or other non-residue leaving cleaner.
  3. After making sure you have adequate ventilation, apply a layer of adhesive spray to the foam layer of db Sniper. Also apply a layer of spray adhesive in the corresponding location on the surface to be covered. Allow the adhesive to tack (dry) then carefully bond the two surfaces together. Hold db Sniper in place with pressure to ensure you have a strong bond.
  4. If you wish to use mechanical fasteners, be sure to use large head washers or rivets to hold in place.
  5. It is also advised to tape the edges of the db Sniper to the body panel with either db Shield or duct tape. It is also reccomended to tape the seams of the dn Sniper for a complete seal.
  6. Done!
