    I was wondering is soundproofing the room the way to go, I seen a friend of mine who has a soundproof house by o'hare airport chicago. His dad is an architect and said they used a special rubber padding in between the walls and also in there home theatre. I read here that quite walls foam or wood is the way to go. ANYONE use this or have opinions please post it.

    thanks

    Everyone DUCK! Here comes Wayne's room within a room post [​IMG] Just kidding Wayne.

    You should just do a search. This is a well discussed subject in this area.

    Here is a good site, even though its a retailer, with information and products.
    http://www.truesoundcontrol.com/prod...dproofing.html

    I myself am going to use resilient channel (do a search you will find tons of discussions) on my ceiling. $3 per 12ft piece, R19 insulation and possibly 90lb tar paper. I even have this crazy idea of putting vinal flooring on my ceiling but I doubt I will try it.

    You can also do staggered stud or double stud walls. There are also products like quiet rock that are supose to absorb and block sound but I don't know what they would do to sound quality.

    And yes, you can even do the dreaded (but best solution) room within a room.

    I used a variety of techniques. the front, left, and right wall of my HT are just 2X4 studs with insulation (they butt up against the concrete foundation). The back wall is a staggered stud with 2X8 foot and sill, and 2X4 studs. The whole theater was RISC-1 clips from pac international (a resilant channel system). Also double stuffed (mmmm....oreo's) insulation in the back wall and ceiling. Good luck.

    Adrian room within a room is exactly that the inner room floats on rubber and is in no way directly connected to the outer room.


    This is a direct quote from Wayne A. Pflughaupt and the best discription of what is done. You can also search for his name to find more information on this technique.
