Tv from next door wall
« on: December 21, 2011, 09:13:42 PM »
 Hello i live in an apt that is connected to another unit by a 9*8 wall.Through this wall i hear a tv going almost all day and night! So i read on this site about putting up wonderboard and the super soundproof mat and then furring strips MLV and a wall panel.Now i read that you say you can just put up MLV to the wall and cover it with drywall.What if i put up the MLV and then covered it with the wonderboard with acoustic caulk all around edges would that work for tv sounds?
thanks for your time

T.V. Noise can be reduced with the Mass Law, therefore adding MLV and Drywall to existing wall will reduce T.V. noise...

The website article is for a removable system when people can not hang drywall.

do you rent or own?

hi there im currently renting so taking down the wall would not really be an option thats why i asked about the wonderboard because its easier to put up then drywall which has to be taped and all that i dont want to reduce the tv i want to like the man says in the article "shut the noise down". so u think mlv with drywall will do the trick?

Yes it would work however, remember there is no such thing as 100% soundproof....you should see a decent reduction based on the cost.
