Both the hatch door and floor took 14 sheets of the kilmat. I took it on a test drive on the highway at 80 mph. Diffently makes a difference! Entire project took 2.5 hrs.
As you can see in the before pics honda had some deadening material already installed on the floor but none on the hatch door.
I was thinking about the placebo effect so I took the wife's passport on a test drive with zero deadener added and big difference in the two.
Anyway, that's how I spent my Christmas morning馃槃
Merry Christmas to all!

Did you go over the factory installed sound deadening material on the floor? And was there any problem reinstalling the tray after you installed the new material? I have actually been thinking about doing this, thanks for posting this.

I went right on top of factory material. Kilmats are only 90mil so pretty thin. Zero issues when putting everything back in place.

Was the rear hatch panel removal the same order as the Odyssey video? 馃嵒

It was lol. To the tee! Honda keeps it simple for a decade which makes since!
Small sample update....if you zoom in on pic you will see an Amazon device that I play music on while working in garage. I downloaded a sound decimal app on my phone and tested the outside noise on both my and my wife's untreated Passports.
I tested seating it both the front seats and back seats.
Her exl with the better windshield Glass was on average 5 decibels higher on several different songs playing on the outside Amazon device.
The sound deadening project was a success! I am researching the outside wheel wells now.

Nicely done! (y) Great inspiration, really looking forward to working on mine next week (and I have a new bottle of Aleve on the shelf)!
And with all that done you still had 4 sheets left over from the box.

I did add my last 4 sheets to the two front wheel wells. Being there was nothing from factory in this area I thought I would tell a good bit of difference with tire noise but really didn't hear much change. Didn't take long and was pretty easy so no biggie. That's it for my ride. I will start on wife's soon.
I will not be doing the floor on either.
All in all I would say the doors was the biggest change from the stereo sound. The other areas did help but nothing ground breaking.

I have falken wildpeak at3ws on and they get pretty noisy. The wheel well is my next project, I will be putting sound deadening and the frost king aluminum duct wrap in behind and in the summer will spray 3m rubberized on the outside wheel well plastic liner.

Did you need any special tools to get the fasteners off to get behind the wheel well? Do you remember was the plastic wheel well liner pressed up close to the metal fender?

thanks for the pictures 馃檪 and great work!

It is fairly close to thr metal but had no issues getting clips back in. There are 3 different fastners. 5 Phillip head screws and the other two type clips can be popped out with a flat head screw driver. It was really easy. I only pulled the half that was close to the firewall. I didn't see the other side doing anything for cabin sound.
Hope that helps and good luck with your project! The doors are a must, big difference in speaker sound and when you shut the doors it just sounds tight.

I imagine that the most improvement would be lining the wheel well with MLV somehow. I've been thinking about it and it's pretty awkward to do since it would have to be a durable method of sticking it to the surface.

Have you taken any decibel ratings while at idle, driving, and all power turned off?
