Sound Proofing Small Rehearsal Room
« on: December 12, 2004, 10:54:26 PM »
Anyone's help would be truly appreciated.  I am attempting to make my rehearsal space as quiet to the outside world as possible w/o spending a fortune.  Now I know that truly soundproofing it will be impossible, w/o major construction, but I'm trying to make due with what I have.    

The set up is this:  It is a free standing building, made probably in the last 20 years.  It's 10ft by 7ft with 8ft high ceilings.

The easiest thing would to trying to seal the door, and add mass to the walls without serious constuction.  First of all, is this possible?  Options seem to be installing that 703 fiberglass to the wall.  I read something also about vinyl treatment as well.  And I've even considered trying to put up a sound resistent curtains.

Will any of the above options have a serious effect on blocking the sound?

Also, how much of an effect does insallation have on sound reduction?  

The last option is to take the walls out and rebuild with reslient channels and do some serious research.  

Any guidance is trully appreciated.
