soundproof current soundproof floor to ceiling window
« on: August 07, 2019, 10:58:42 PM »
recently moved into high-rise luxury building in heavy traffic center. my current bedroom facing street, floor to ceiling sound-proof window. With window open, around 90 db. With window closed, reduced to 70 db.
We would like to further reduce bedroom sound to 60 db or 50 db if possible. should we buy sound proof curtain or add another sound proof window?
thanks for the help!

Adding a soundproof curtain might get you a couple db change at best.. Adding the second window with the greatest air gap between the two will get you far more reduction.
At 2-3" gap you could see 10+ db reduction.
