Here is where I am now in the build
DynaMat installed on the ducting, this makes such a huge difference it is unbelievable. Started doing it and wasn't really sure but by the time I was half done the run I was impressed. When you hit it initially with your knuckle to test for sound resonance it makes a loud twang noise and resonates for several seconds. After treating it, it sounds like you are hitting a sheet of wood.
Here is a picture of what an Isomax clip looks like they are used every 16" vertically and every 48" horizontally they are $8 a piece and I nee 200 of them to do my room. The purpose of this is to decouple the drywall from the studs so sounds is not transferred.
And some of the Gear with my Monitor 11's
Today I am doing electrical and them have to get it inspected next week, I will continue to post the progress if anyone has any question or input feel free to post up something.
