Ok before everyone comes back and says DD>GG and hat channel, hear me out. I know the benefits of that method, I have studied it relentlessly, unfortunately, It just is not going to happen. I would love to do it, but it is just not going to work this time around. The next theater I build will certainly be done with an architect and all the proper soundproofing for sure. I certainly understand that thread on here "what you would do different next time". LOL, I have a whole list.
I got a price today for Quiet rock 1/2" 4X8 sheet for $50. It is actually $15 bucks cheaper than the guy next door quoted me and it is in stock. So my question is, has anybody used quiet rock? I wanted to hear any feedback on how the room sounds with the quiet rock for anyone who has used it/using it.
I was just going to use 1/2" sheetrock or maybe 5/8" with Roxul insulation, but figured maybe quiet rock would give me a little more soundproofing vs just one single layer of drywall. Also I am getting the 1/2" thickness that I wanted. I know it is a little more money, but for the size of the room it is fine.
So I guess the question is, will there be any benefit what so ever using the quiet rock vs a single standard sheet of 5/8" drywall? One thing to point out is that the room has one wall attached to the house. There is nothing over head and the room sits off the house. I appreciate any feedback good or bad.
