Keeping sound at minimun-for backyard parties
« on: October 03, 2008, 08:12:57 PM »
I am planning to have summer parties w/Karaoke involve. I don't want to disturb my neighbours too much, so how do I keep sound down or what can I use to limit the sound level in my backyard? My backyard is fenced with a 6feet wooden fence.

First off, your fence needs to be 10' - 12' tall with mass added to it like MLV and caulked between all slats ... this will give you a sound reduction depending on how loud you get in the backyard and the distance between you and your neighbor.
