Want to isolate sound from my room
« on: January 20, 2012, 09:32:38 AM »
Hi all,
As topic said, I want to isolate sound from my room to another room ( behind the wall )

What solution is an easy way to do?

Behind wall in the picture is another room.

Is the SSP Foam Mat will help this ?   or Do I need to use Mass Loaded Vinyl with the SSP Foam Mat too ?

my room -> SSP Foam -> MLV -> Wall -> another room or    my room -> MLV -> SSP Foam -> Wall -> another room ?
what solution is the best and inexpensive to reduce noise to my neighbor room.

Sorry for my bad english anyway.
Thanks.

Is that a true wall? 2 x 4 studs and drywall on both sides or is that wall partial drywall and some wood covering an entry way or door?

Can you build a new wall not touching the existing wall? if so, you would use Mass loaded vinyl(sealed), cotton fiber and 5/8" drywall. Great Results, inexpensive but you lose more space.
or
if attaching to existing wall you could use Mass loaded vinyl with PSA (adhesive backing) followed by 1" foam mat. Great results more expensive. 

It really comes down to what type of noise your trying to reduce and if that wall is built correctly. If it is low frequency(bass) then I would build the new wall. If it is only for TV, people talking etc..than both options are going to work. If that wall is not built right I would build the new wall.

I think my wall is 2 x 5 studs and just a wood panel for covering on both side.

Actually it is my bedroom but I have bookshelf speakers & a little home theater system and I want to reduce noise as much as possible to another room.

Look like the 2nd option is the best solution for me. ( I'm not a handy man and I can't do anything to an existing wall or build a new wall)

Which one is better choice between
1. Double-Weight Mass Loaded Vinyl + 1/2" foam mat
2. Mass loaded vinyl + 1" foam mat

If I used the double-weight MLV how can I attach to the wall ?  use glue or something else ?    (I can't find double-weight MLV with PSA)

I just curious if I use MLV on both side (my room and another room).  Is it will improve sound isolate with good result or just a little bit improvement?

just go with  MLV w/ PSA

followed by 1" foam mat w/Psa...simple and easy...seal your MLV before you offset the foam mat.
