Thanks for the excellent site. Of course I just found it now when it is almost too late. I did order the $10 electronic version of the guide.
Three days from now a crew of drywallers will come in to put up soundboard, channel and drywall in my basement rec-room. At Home Depot they promote putting soundboard first on the studs/joists, then channel, then drywall.
Do you suggest it is more effective to hang the soundboard and drywall both off the channel?
How much more effective is 5/8 drywall versus 1/2 inch? I did all the planning for 1/2, and a number of changes would be required at a late date.
How quick can the neoprene vibration pads be sent to Canada?
Finally, in spite of wanting to sound-proof this room as much as possible, design considerations (i.e. my other half) demanded the use of pot lights in the room. Have I eliminated all the benefit of the other soundproofing through the installation of pot lights?
Thanks in advance.
