    I am doing my false ceiling now with DD & GG .etc. to my understanding that it is better to have 4" fiberglass layer above the false ceiling, so my question is: can I divide this layer as follows: - 2" fiberglass attached to the actual ceiling - 2" fiberglass attached to the false ceiling -...

    Hey guys, I am currently designing my new theater room, I really want to trap the sound inside so I don't annoy the wife, So far the plan is to go with sound screen insulation in the walls and ceiling, one layer of 13mm sound check plaster board hung vertically and calked, then use rubber...

    Yo! I'm nearing the final stages of my build out, and I'm insulating. I couldn't go with resillient channel due to some space considerations, so I splurged on the Roxul (and some Johns Manville) Safe N Sound. I've got it in the walls, and and am working on the dual layer for the ceiling. Can...

    Team, First off, happy holidays. As many of you know, I am finishing my basement which includes my very first home theater system. Since I have a blank slate to work with (no construction), I want to take every step necessary acoustically and from a soundproofing perspective. Below is my...

    Hello Everyone, I was asked to come here by Wayne at the pro audio section of this forum. I have a room in the basement that I need to soundproof. Currently I just have the basic dry walls which still need to be finished. For the soundproofing, I'm thinking to tear down the drywalls, insert...

    Ok this isnt for a HT but I'm a moderate Shackster and REW user and my boss asked me to help him soundproof his (half-built) conference room. I figured I could maybe get some advise here at HTS :) He's building a new office from the ground up basically. He started building the conference room...

    So I'm still kicking around the idea of tearing down my entire ceiling to do soundproofing but there are obstacles in other areas of the basement that are making me think I will not benefit from doing so. My dilema, I have added a new gaming section which was once walled off, but since all my...

    So probably doing this a bit backward, but now that I've got most my equipment set up, I'm thinking about sound proofing. Basically what I'm wondering is is how much improvement in sound isolation will I get from modifying a single wall. The room sits above my garage and three walls are...

    Hi, I have attached a copy of my media room for you guys to see and give me some ideas on the best way to soundproof the walls. The media room is in the basement and is surrounded on two sides by concrete foundation and the other side is my media room equipment/storage area. I will be installing...

    I am probably not going to be able to do my ideal HT room but the wifey has said she wouldn't mind me doing a HT room in the existing living room we have. Now one of the questions I have is when others use an existing room and want to add green glue and another layer of drywall do the just add...

    Hello, I’m preparing to open and piano studio to teach lessons in a strip mall retail space. I’m researching soundproofing for my walls. I’m leasing so I can’t tear out the drywall. Have you ever heard of this product, and does it work? It's web site is...

    Hello again all, Most builds on here are basement builds, with very few exceptions. I am hoping to do the full Clips/DD+GG on my walls and ceiling (so much for headroom lol) but im not sure about the floor. Most have cement, and im obviously dealing with Joists. Due to flanking i figure if im...

    Hi all, This is a common question, so perhaps some might find this interesting. When we’re looking to soundproof a partition (wall or ceiling) we’d like to introduce Absorption in the otherwise hollow wall or ceiling cavities. Foam is a common consideration, however not appropriate for what we...

    I've built a room within a room in my detached workshop for band practice. I realize this forum deals with home theatres, but I think my questions still relate. I'm on a limited budget and am building as cheaply as possible. My workshop has no foundation, and is simply raised about 2' off the...

    Thought I would bounce this off of the forum members and see what you think. So I started to construct MDF and drywall isolation boxes for my can lights and got to thinking about installing them. I don't really want to purchase the sound isolation clips to mount the boxes as it will end up...

    Got this question via email, thought I would post it here so you can check my math: When it comes to soundproofing, you need mass (density) and separation (decoupling). This means that any transmissive surface in the room, say a wall, needs to be heavy to reduce the sound waves that are...
