Welcome to the HTS.

It isn't a good idea to attach it directly. It'll transmit more sound than you think. They do make isolation clips to deal with this kind of thing. As long as you're going to the point you are for good iso, I hate to see you waste it here.

It would all depend on specific sizes, clearances, what you're doing with the rest of the ceiling, etc. Can you post a dimensioned sketch and/or a pic?
