    Thanks again to all who have shared their expertise. I am in the process of ordering the materials and just checking to make sure I am on the right track. This is my first HT and those who have been in my shoes could imagine how important this project means to me.

    Room: 21L x 13.5W x 9’H - Basement: concrete floor with kitchen above

    Floor – Acoustik Mat (acousticalsurfaces), one layer OSB.
    Walls & ceiling – two layers of drywall with Green Glue.
    Stage & riser – built on the subfloor filled with R13 and one layer OSB.

    In the original design I included a trey ceiling with can lights because of existing gas/water pipes and duct work. I am really concerned with sound traveling to the room above (kitchen) and would like to incorporate the RSIC-1 clips.
    I guess in order to use the RSIC clips I will have to move the pipes and duct work.

    Is building the trey ceiling with can lights after the clips/drywall a good idea? Will the cans vibrate?. What should I do?

    Thanks,

    Eddie

    I'm not familer with "RSIC-1 clips" but if possible, I would avoid punching holes in your ceiling for can lights. They may or may not vibrate, but they will hamper sound isolation. Try to stick with surface mount fixtures if possible.
