regarding MASS LOADED VINYL 1 lb vs 2 lb
« on: November 15, 2018, 05:20:49 AM »
 
 I am trying to use mass loaded vinyl on the second floor condo to block airborne sound.


Will the 2 lb MLV make a big difference? or should I go with the 1 lb? what do you think?

  I can hear some music when it is very load, people speaking when they shout, some tv noise.

In order to get "big" reductions you need a lot of mass, so #2lb will work better then #1lb.

and you might actually need more mass depending on how much reduction you want.
