Sound Proofing Common Walls In Townhouse
« on: March 07, 2006, 05:15:41 PM »
Greetings,



I have just purchased a new Towhhouse in which I share a wall with a noisy tenant(renter).  



Their Bass on their Computer/Home Theater comes right through the walls/floors. I have repeatedly asked them to tone it down, but it doesnt seem to be working.  



I have read a lot about the MLV material and it seems to be the best solution.  



My only question is, how do I know if I need to cover the floor or wall? Also, how much of this material do I need use? Should I cover the entire surface completely?



Also, where can I purchase MLV?



Any assistance that you could give would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks



Doug

You will need to completely cover the whole area without gaps to avoid "sound leaks".  See
