MLV
« on: September 14, 2005, 04:20:41 PM »
I have been looking at the MLV you guys offer and I am interested in it, but I do not know which thickness to get. I have a downstairs practice room for a 4 piece rock band (2 guitars, bass, drums). There are two walls that are not buffered by any other rooms that definitely will need soundproofing (one has a window in it). I may also try to soundproof the ceiling? There is a bedroom right above it.

Thanks for the help.

More is always better.  It's better to use layers of MLV rather than one thick piece.  It's also better to provide some space for the MLV rather than mashing it between panels.

Each 1/8 inch layer (as a rule of thumb) is considered to reduce sound transfer by 50%...

right and you say that layers do better than one thick piece so what would two layers of 1/8 be equivalent to in one sheet?
