Question by splash04ranger: Tryng to sound proof a room where a band and a office is. 2X6 wall no blown insulation availible Any ideas?
Material is somewhat limited I was thinking of doing a 1/2″ sheetrock to 1/2″ plywood wall, dual layer of insulation, I have no sheetrock knives or compound so I can’t finished the room like I should. The room is for a band and on the other side is an office.

Put carpet on the walls. Looks tacky, but it works.

    put some mattreses up the springs help absorb and keep the sound down if u put on whole room it would be soundproof

    5/8 sound board on the band side of the wall, it works better if it was mounted on the studs with insulation in the wall and Sheetrock over it but for a quick fix this might do it. sound board absorbs the noise.

    You will need to install a material that absorbs sound obviously. I suggest using a neoprene foam type insulation. We us it to deaden sound from mechanical equipment.

    The only problem I can see is if you need to use both rooms at the same time. Well anyway…………………. ROCK ON!

    If you cannot insulate the wall, try egg crate foam:

    Place it on the band-side of the wall for minimal installation.

    Sheetrock and plywood will only be so good for what you want.
    Remember that sound proof means that the material absorbs the sound ways and does not let them pass through.
    After you put up the sheet-rock and plywood then add a layer of the foam rubber that is used under new carpet when they lay it.
    You will need easy to find material, and foam is easy as is Styrofoam.
    The thicker it is the better!

    Attaching more layers to the existing wall won’t block much sound. If possible, build a second wall that doesn’t touch the existing wall and put some insulation between the two. It doesn’t have to be strong, but enough to attach sheetrock to it. This should help prevent vibrations from passing to the office.

    I always heard u could use cardboard egg cartons to do it. If u can find cardboard one now. Just line the walls with them some how they make it like a sound proof room.
