B.J, in between joists ok?
« on: October 19, 2003, 12:56:26 AM »
A long time ago I remember BJ had those noise abatement panels from recycled tire. I believe they were 2" thick....

If I recall correctly, he did use those in between the joists of a floor/ceiling. I am not sure if that was for a band or not, but I would be interested in knowing:

how much noise is transmitted through the joists of a floor/ceiling with stc50?

approx how much would one gain if the panels are in between the joists in the above floor?

would there be a performance difference if the panel was halfway up the joist, hence insulation on both sides?

when a basement room is insulated so well, does that make the floors upstairs cold in the winter (directly above sound room, thinking that there is no heat leaking up to heat floor)

what are the resonant frequencies for:

concrete block
epdm (rubber)
noise abatement pannels

when building a room in a room is there an acoustial problem with having the ceiling trusses for the rooms 90 degrees different ? Could bass problems occur.....
