    I'm going to put a home theater in a new home that I'm currently building. Going to build a room within a room. I was planning on using Auralex' Sheetblok Sound Barrier

    http://www.auralex.com/sound_isolati..._sheetblok.asp

    on the outer room walls, ceiling and floor. The web site says it is more effective than lead at stopping the tramsnission of sound. Found out it costs $325 for a 4' by 30' roll. My original plans would therefore cost me about $5000.

    Sometimes a standard product that is sold for other purposes, is given a fancy name and a high mark-up and is then sold as a specialty item. Does anyone know if this stuff is sold elsewhere for less money?

    Thanks for your help. Bill

    They have the same stuff for about half the price.

    Keep in mind this stuff is _heavy_ and expensive to ship.
