Soundproofing a portion of my basement
« on: December 20, 2003, 10:46:27 PM »
I live in an old house and the sound just flows through it. I have a band thats really loud and we started practicing in our basement and the music flows through the whole house up to the next two floors. The basement is pretty large but our practice area is not, id say I would need to soundproof only about 20' by 15' of the basement, but wouldnt the sound still be heard from the rest of the portion of the basement and still flow upstairs? I need to make it completely quiet for the people in the upstairs. I do not have much money and was wondering how I may go about doing this especially because I do not care to soundproof the whole basement, just that one area. If you can please help me an tell me some cheap materials to buy that would almost completely stop the noise and keep a very strong sound barrier so no noise passes through. Thankyou.
