karoke club
« on: March 22, 2009, 12:30:40 PM »
i am starting a new busines in california which would be private karoke rooms from 5-10 rooms.
The rooms will be anywhere from 50sqft to 200sqft. I am looking for a location now. the building
would either be with wood or aluminum framing ith the rooms already split. most of the places have tenants upstair or to th sides. Finally here is my quesion how would i insulate the rooms for maximum noise
reduction. I am really on a tight budget but can do the construction myelf (i am a contractor). What
 materials would i need and how much would it run me per room (100sqft). I would really perfer not to
open up the walls. The walls will be basic 2x4 studs with 5/8 sheetrock.I've seen 6" studio foam online would that be enough if it is glued all around the walls and cieling.Thanks for your time any help
will be greatly appreciated.

Im not sure what your really trying to do here. Do you want to reduce transmission through the walls and ceilings? or do you want to condition the acoustics in the room?
The 4" foam you mention is for room echo and reverd /standing waves in a room..
open cell foams do not stop the transmission through walls and ceilings.
Give me a call at my office and we can discuss options that might suit your needs and budget.
