Bedroom studio walls
« on: July 08, 2003, 08:52:38 PM »
I just bought a home and I would like to convert two bedrooms to a studio. The walls are drywall/stud and I would like to keep them intact if possible. What is the best solution to soundproof these rooms? From reading previous posts I am thinking MLV over the drywall, seal it, then a new drywall layer. Would resilient channel help here? What do you think about the floor? Floor is concrete - house is built on a slab. I went outside and had a friend play drums and the kick drum's low thump is the major escapee.
You already enlightened me with tips on switching to solid doors!
Thanks. JM :o

It looks like you have the right idea with the MLV sandwich using the 5/8" fire code drywall. If thew drums are causing impact noise to escape the house, you might need to float that particular wall, but I think for the most part, you will be fine with the sealed vinyl sandwich. Don't forget to use the real acoustical caulk, and not the immitation stuff. Thanks J.M. Any other questions, please either post again or give me a call.
