reduce acoustics in an apartment bedroom
« on: August 13, 2006, 03:40:38 PM »
I'm in a situation where I need to apply some method of sound dampening to my bedroom, the noise from my roommates talking/TV will be too much.

703 is out of the question because my landlord will demand it be removed upon first sight - firehazard more than anything.  I'm also not looking for a permanent solution, something  I can take down easily.

Therefore my research has given me the option of: http://www.markertek.com/SearchProduct.asp?item=SAB%2D1&off=56&sort=prod

or

http://cgi.ebay.com/HOME-SOUNDPROOFING-WALL-SOUND-PROOF-MATERIAL-STUDIO_W0QQitemZ320016246045QQihZ011QQcategoryZ3278QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Does anyone have experience with the first product?  I realize that neither of these will help with lower frequencies, but all i'm really trying to stop is vocals.  I figure at the price I can just double them up on the walls, as my room isn't very big.

Thanks

Since you are a rentor, youir landlord does not leave you much room to make decisions regarding soundproofing your apartment walls. THey do not like materials to be permanently attached to their property.

You may want to look  into hanging up Mass  Loaded Vinyl Sound Barrier mateterial using groments and hooks.
