Hi everybody. I have a garage that I am closing up and finishing the inside for some workspace/officespace. There is a wooden building connected to the garage that I am also planning on finishing the inside for use as a theater room. The room is 17 1/2 x 11. It is actually not built on a concrete slab, it's off the ground a little bit. I know some sound will go through, but I want to keep it as muted as possible outside the building. There is only one neighbor and they're a pretty good distance away, but I'm more of a night person so I don't want people to be bothered by sound at midnight. Does using thicker drywall or any special insulation help at all? As for the flooring I have some left over laminate wood to use. Is there anything additional I can put under the laminate besides the pad to dampen sound a bit? I have a pair of Rocket 750's up front and I'm working on the rest right now. Thanks for any input you can offer. I'm sure I'll have a couple more questions before I get started, so thanks a lot!
