For about ten dollars...

Posted by Mongo on October 7th, 2001 12:30 AM
In reply to sound-proofing a room by Drew on October 6th, 2001 10:52 PM [Go to top of thread] should be able to do what you want in your 16 by 20-inch room.

What's in there now, and what is your budget?

First, get a few cans of acoustical foam and seal EVERY penetration in the floor, walls and ceiling.

Best bet is to build a wall within a wall...but I'm guessing that's a budget-buster.

Resilient channels and two layers of drywall w seams offset? How about Homasote board?

The channels and one layer of drywall/Homasote?

Thick padding (use in quilt making, etc) covered with fabric on the walls/ceiling?

Rubber mats on the floor?

Ever see those "dressing screens"...about 6'tall, made up of three or four hinged panels? Get a few of those w foam/fabric covered panels, and set them up on opposite sides of the room with the panels "zig-zagged." The idea is to keep sound waves from reflecting off opposite parallel surfaces in the room.
