Soundproofing TV from below
« on: October 04, 2001, 04:46:10 PM »
My downstairs neighbors have loud TV habits and no carpeting on their floors.  I hear their TV constantly.  I have applied a soundproof board, padding and carpeting and that does not eliminate the noise.  Any suggestions?

The materials you used have little or no soundblocking qualities- see the link below for some hints...Also see http://soundproofing.org/infopages/channel.htm

I have the same problem. Very loud t.v. from DOWNSTAIRS neighbors.  Will that method work for downstairs televisions. My sounds seems to be coming from vibrations off the walls. I'm hearing the tv through the walls not the floor. ?

You could ask them to move the TV away from the walls... This will really help.  The MLV (Mass Loaded Barrier) needs to be next to their TV on the wall....
