The reason some folks use MDF on the layer closest to the studs is to provide a mounting surface anywhere in the room. Drywall on the facing layer for the smoothest, best looking, easiest to paint layer showing.
Would MDF work better than drywall for acoustics?

It's just for isolation, not to do with in-room acoustics. All a matter of mass in terms of isolation.

So would MDF be better than drywall in terms of isolation and mass?

Realistically about the same though MDF will be more expensive and not flex as much as drywall. Trading motion eating pressure vs rigidity. Drywall will be more predictable.

OSB is not as good as drywall either, correct?

Nope. Not as much mass.

So if a person is going to hang acoustic panels they should do one layer of OSB and follow up with one or two layers of drywall, correct? If you forgo the OSB would screw in anchors work for hanging acoustic panels or does that defeat the purpose of using clips?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Panels can hang just on the drywall with the right anchor. OOKS hooks work great. No need to find a stud even. VERY small nail hole - much smaller than the auger type drywall anchors.

OSB/MDF are used for things like when you don't know where the surrounds would be, if you need to hang shelves, etc. But if you know in advance, you can also just use cross braces between studs in the proper locations and use all drywall.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Well we should have the garage ready to start construction on in a week or two...

This is what the plan is so far.
1:Cut out the door opening and install a solid core door from the garage to the house.
2:Build the hallway wall (not sure if this should be done before or after ceiling and raised floor)
3: Open up the ceiling and walls to re do the sound insulation

The next step I am not sure of... Should the floor or ceiling be built next?

For the ceiling we will be doing the 1/4" foam board, GG, drywall, insulation,GG all of this between the beams and then... Drywall, GG, Drywall

For the floor we are planning on moisture barrier 2x4 with 3/4" OSB (insulation in the sub floor if it will fit).

I figure the drywall on the walls will be after we have demo'd the speakers in the room.

How does this sound? Is this the correct order to do this? Suggestions? Do we do the electrical wiring before we do the 1/4" foam in between the ceiling joists or after? I am thinking it would go in the fiberglass insulation layer but I am not sure.

Is anyone familiar with these Genie Clips? Are they any good?
