Need help modifying existing practice room
« on: January 17, 2010, 03:55:01 PM »
I built a 4x8 room to practice my guitar in in the corner of a basment.  Two walls are exterior cinderblock.  The other two are 2x4 studs with 3/4 fire rock on each side with R-13 insulation in the middle.   I added two layers of the 3/4 rock and a 2" layer to pink foam insulation between them.  On top of that I've added a bunch of moving blankets attached to the walls inside.  One wall is a 4x8 swinging door that has an interior and exterior layer of 2inch pink foam insulation.   

It's pretty quiet but I'm wanting more.   Should I coat teh interior walls and ceiling with MLV and then rehang the moving blankets?   I can't pull the drywall and wish I would have put it in then.  Any other ideas for further db reductions.  I have a large tube amp and want to crank it.  I can now turn it up but want it louder.

Use our SSP foam mat in 1" thickness, cover the entire room. This will give you the extra boost your looking for.
