Title: Sound Conditioning
Post by: R J Long on April 28, 2002, 09:37:36 PM
I'm looking for advice on avoiding a echo/reverb problem with new construction in a large residental room (New House)..
The room is 24 feet high with a length of 40 feet and a width of 20 feet..  The ceiling is a sloped catherdral flattening to a 8'x 20' horizontal section at the peak..
Presently the ceiling is insulated but unfinished and ready for drywall..  Seems everyone is concerned that an application of drywall may create an hollow drum effect..
We live in a rural area and there are no contractors with any true conditioning experience..
Thoughts have been given to some sort of special plaster ?? but the nearest plasters are several hundrend miles away..
Any ideas would be appreciate,  Trying to avoid a expensive mistake..

Everyone seems to have unique soundproofing issues, and yours appears to be no exception. I looks like you have a lot of area to soundproof. I could go into great detail, but to be honest, I am at a computer all day, so my fingers can't take it.
You can give me a call @ (760)749-7049 The Super Soundproofing Co. and we can discuss your soundproofing situation, and then agree on how to fix it. Thanks for the inquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Your room doesn't sound atypical at all.  Just finish the room with the drywall normally.  Make sure you have enough soft furnishings, such as a sofa and draperies.  I have a living room with all hard surfaces and experience no such problem though everyone thought I would.  In other words, don't worry.  If you have a problem, a small thick rug or a sofa (not leather!) will easily solve your problem.
