Soundproofing a big basement
« on: September 15, 2006, 05:14:21 AM »
Ok. This'll be a toughy.

I have a rather large basement in a rented end uint townhouse. attached on one side, and a hallway between the other attaching house.
Concrete walls all around the basement, but the jam area is in the corner (ie: two walls close, like this shape ^)
I NEED to make this room basically let out no noise.
The biggest issue, I have very little money to spend on it. I can do all the work building it, but I can't spend much getting it ready.

IS THIS POSSIBLE?
To get it quiet enough that it could be mistaken for a somewhat loud tv?

Please help!

Noise isolation = $$$$$

Unfortunate, but true.  Effective soundproofing and a meager budget (or zero budget) are completely incompatible.

Get serious about spending some money, then you can receive valid advice on the methods and products that will help you.  Otherwise, you're just wasting your time.

hi unoriginal,

As already stated, what you propose on low/no budget is NOT possible.
