In reading an earlier post here, I see some people recommending Acoustiblok for sound supression. Sounds great, but I can't find any local dealers of the stuff and it seems quite expensive. Does anyone know of any alternatives?

Thanks,
Bob

Bobby,

Simply adding a second layer of sheetrock costs much less and improves isolation much more than any thin vinyl.

Adding a second layer of sheetrock can actually exasperate your noise abatement problem.
