lgl`s soundproof HT

Hello all.
I`ve started to build my new HT, and i`m planning to build it soundproof.
The room will be supplied with traps an diffusors.
I hope to build a great room with great sound and no need for robbing my bank.
This was my old HT.

Re: lgl`s soundproof HT

One more question, how do i install the wall studs to the concrete wall.
Are resilient clips an option.

Re: lgl`s soundproof HT

Wall studs would not contact concrete wall = decoupled

There are two types of clips. One decouples the frames wall from the joists overhead. This is the DC-04 clip.

The other clip you may be more familiar with is the sound isolation clips like the PAC RSIC-1 or WhisperClip. These isolate the drywall from the stud wall

If the wall itself is separated from the concrete you would benefit from the DC-04s but not the Sound isolation clips

Thanks Ted.
The wall itself is separated from the concrete wall, the DC-4 looks great, how many clips should i use in the wall.

Re: lgl`s soundproof HT

Every 3-4 feet along the top plate of that wall. Again, the stud wall is maybe 1" from the concrete. With a little R13 fiberglass. Then drywall right to that stud wall.

The heavier that wall is, the better. Double 5/8" drywall is perfect

Re: lgl`s soundproof HT

The only issue with walls inside of walls, lgl, is that this type of build can eat up a lot of floor space and quickly. Sure it does what it does, but is it what you require for the best isolation based on your budget.

And take that low ceiling height into consideration...it only gets lower from here

Adding mass to the upper floor area is a good thing and can reduce sound penetration from upstairs to downstairs, and vice-versa. That should get on your radar screen first no matter what you do.

Have you taken any sound measurements around the house, inside/outside to determine what it is you are up against as far as noise levels go?

Another blip on the radar screen just appeared


You have an idea of what you want I can tell, so plan out all the steps before you take them is my suggestion.
