We have a basemnet suite that is hearing more sounds than we expected. Basement is large 1000sq/ft. Hard wood floors above (with area rugs and underlay). Ceiling is stucco in basement. Ceiling is 8.5 feet tall.
How can we reduce the sounds from upstairs to downstairs and vise versa.
We heard of installing a sound bar (beam) and then drywall overthat to creat a gap between floors, don't mind that but would think there is a better way??
