    With a new build imminent, I am trying my level best to get all the set-up pre-planned before the cinema build.

    With regards to the sound proofing I have instructed the builder for a room with extra thick accoustic plasterboard on both the walls & ceiling filled with rockwool between the cavity.

    As this build will be on the existing outside wall and have 2 outside walls of it's own, it will be also be situated next to the new build for the kichen so will have a solid wall between them too.

    I am also thinking of getting accoustic underlay to keep the bass localised as much as I can.

    However has anyone any further suggestions how I can make it further soundproofed from detached neighbours? :devil:

    It really shouldnt be a problem, I live in a link-detatched house (ie joined at the garage) and have my system in an upstairs room. I have 1600w of amplification and a very large SVS sub all of which are generally run at fairly high levels and the neighbours have never mentioned a thing :)
