Blocking low-frequency from getting upstairs.
« on: September 25, 2017, 06:56:38 PM »
I have a specific case where my sound system is setup in the basement of my house.

Two floors up are the bedrooms. My subwoofer gets up to the top floor. I'm on a concrete floor, with a nice thick carpet.
I just want to reduce some of the sound getting upstairs.

My sub is under my large desk (cheep door laid across two filing cabinets). I just want to a realatively inexpensive way to reduce some of the low-frequency sound getting upstairs without taking out my walls.

Is there any way I can utilize the concrete floor to my advantage? Would putting thick sound proofing foam padding in between the sub and the wall help at all?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
