Sound proofing a "party wall"
« on: December 12, 2006, 04:29:25 AM »
I just moved into a new condo, and found that the neighbors stereo can be heard quite easily (just the bass).

I've been researching possible solution, and am curious if green glue would be a good solution?

The common wall appears to be 1/2" drywall with a metal stud, some fluff insulation and more 1/2" drywall.  

The common wall has outlets (power / cable / telephone ), would it be advisable to patch these up with drywall before green glue (if that is even a good solution)?  If I wanted to keep the outlets, how do you sound proof around an outlet?

Has anyone used green glue?  Is it worth the cost?

Did you have to get approval through the condo assoc?  How difficult was the process?

Any information you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated.
