How to soundproof a bed
« on: June 06, 2007, 07:24:15 PM »
Hello,

I just moved into an apartment where the tenants from above are late nighters. I can sleep with earplugs so noise is not an issue, but the vibrations from their footsteps, TV or music still get through.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to insulate the bed specificaly against vibrations. Something like pads, certain types of carpets or what not. It is a rental.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've been in this exact situation.  It might feel like the noise is being transmitted through the mattress, but it's not.  The springs in the mattress make for excellent vibration absorbers, but the fabric and foam don't block sound very well.  The noise and vibration are radiating off the walls/floor/ceiling and passing right through your bed.  Since your place is a rental, you might want to try something temporary - MLV + foam, something like that.  Call supersoundproofing and see what they say.
