Double Check about soundproofng products
« on: January 14, 2002, 01:55:05 AM »
I live in a town home and am getting ready to build my first false wall to insulte my breakfast room from the unit next door.  I have limited funds and was told by a 'professional" at another site and byt the people at home depot to do the following.
Please tell me if I should be using different materials, for the price.
1. Adhere 3/4 in styrofoam to the existing wall.  
2. leave 2 inches of dead air space.
3. Build false wall with accounstical board on one side and wallboard on  the other.
Will this sufficiently eliminate the percussion of kitchen cabinets and reduce the bass from the neighbors stereo?
