Basement soundproofing
« on: January 04, 2003, 08:37:11 PM »
I have a spiral staircase that ends in the basement.  All sound in the basement rises to the main and second floors. I have a band and would like to rehearse in the basement without disturbing the rest of the house. I removed the suspended ceiling tiles and am thinking about filling in the ceiling joists with sound insulation (type and quality unknown at this time I was also wondering whether there is any sound proof material that could be used to make a curtain to draw around the staircase to prevent noise from rising from the basement. Boxing in the bottom of the staircase defeats the value of having it. Lots of questions very few answers. Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
