Basment Windows
« on: September 15, 2012, 12:59:50 AM »

I have an above average home theater in the basement with some serious sound output capability.  Right in the listening area are two 14x32inch windows leading the back yard.  I am after a large amount of sound suppression for these windows and saw the "Window Plug" section on this site.  The reason for the sound suppresion is two things:  1.  Not to let the Home Theater sound out. 
2.  But more importantly, to not let cricket noises into the basement from outside the windows.

What is the best way to go about doing this?  A picture is attached.  Looks like I will have about 3-4 inches of dead air space to work with as well, so hopefully that will help.

You have a lot of dead air space so that is great for your results.

You can use a window plug or a second piece of 3/8" plexi glass.
Here are the links.
