Frequency and pattern for sound clips and resilient channel
« on: February 03, 2003, 09:18:29 AM »
Hello,
I need to know how many and what pattern to use for resilient channel and sound clips for use on walls and ceilings.  Walls are 16" O.C. ceilings are 24" O.C.  I'm needing to support 1 layer 1/2" MDF and 1 layer 5/8" drywall in the assembly.  Another question I have been wondering about is the assembling of the wall to ceiling joint.  For sound isolation, do you assemble your drywall butted up tight to the ceiling and to each other at the corners as usual?  Or is it preferable to leave a slight gap to let the RC or sound clip "spring" have some space to move. . . and caulk. . .then tape.
