    Sound proofing.

    Hi all. I am building a home cinema at some point when funds allow, but in the meantime the dedicated room is taking shape and getting to plasterboard stage just like the rest of the rooms. Seemingly building a room in a room is a wise choice for sound isolation. I have actually done this...

    Sound proofing

    I've read much on here about soundproofing and taken a lot of it onboard when doing my garage conversion - i.e. building a 6" stud partition with rock wool insulation and sheeted both sides (12mm ply out, plasterboard in), leaving a 4" air gap from the outside wall, effectively like a timber kit...

    Question Soundproofing for room above

    I need to sound proof my home cinema, to prevent the sound going in the room above. The side is not a concern at all. The installer said he needed only to put acoustic material on the ceiling, not on the side wall, because he said that sound will not travel up via the side wall. Is that true...

    Being doing a fair bit of reading around this, and it's a steep learning curve. Double stud seems to be the best method of decoupling but only if you've got the wall depth to spare. I haven't managed to work out how much difference we are talking though. Double stud as below. Now in my...
