That diagram was very helpful! I hadn't seen this style clip rotated 90 degrees and mounted on a block attached to the side of 1 joist (versus using a standard clip on a block bridging 2 joists. Soundproofingcompany has the IB-2 EXT Clip
which appears to be similar. I wonder if it can be rotated 90 degrees as well.
I like this clip. It only requires blocking on one side of the joist cavity (which solves my HVAC challenge) and, due to lack of dimensions on their data sheet, potentially with thinner lumber than a 2x4 for a block.
I googled 'A96r' and see that it's available from a few places. Further, I went right to it's manufacturer's site and found their online catalogue
Check out pages 60-63 for more info there.
This clip might do the trick for me near my HVAC, then I could use the approach described on post 3 for everywhere else in combination with the IB-2 Clip
so that I've got the same clip design across the entire ceiling.
BIG- Thanks. You're helping solve this for 2 of us (and probably a few more) at the same time! All while working on 2 builds (or more?!?)... You're a machine.
giancarlod - sorry for piggybacking this thread, but I, like you, don't want to blow the budget on just clips either. The above I hope are cheaper than what you've found so far.
