What soundproofing products have the ability to contain the bass inside an untreated room so that a noticeable amount of bass that is escaping out of the room be significantly attenuated from the bass heard in an adjacent room?

I'm interested to know if there are soundproofing products to solve this acoustic problem and where I can buy them.

My 5.1 audio system bedroom setup:
10'1" L x 9'11" D x 8' H. One corner opens up to a space (for the door to open/close) that measures 2'4" L x 2'11" D x 8' H.
AVR: Denon 1712
Fronts: Pioneer SP-BS41-LR
Center: Pioneer SP-C21
Rear: Pioneer SP-BS21-LR
Subwoofer: SVS PC12-NSD
TV: Samsung UN46EH6070...

I purchased items from soundisolationstore.com and they have a lot of info on isolation techniques in general. I got an AVS discount, too, though I don't know if that is still offered.

+1

One of the more stealthy room-in-room construction techniques is the wall with a separate set of studs for the inside wall and the outside wall. The floating floor is another one. I've seen ceilings floated by supporting the joists with nylon cords.

I used room in room, multi layer drywall with Green Glue between and it works VERY well. Strong bass needs 2 things to significantly reduce it. Mass (drywall) and energy transformation. Green Glue turns acoustic energy to heat.

$10 this same question will come up in 3-4 months.....like it has every 3-4 months.
And cables make a sound diff
And amps make sound diff

I'm just being sarcastic today - got caught in snow squall traffic jam going to Detroit auto show this morning, but a simple search would show up similar results.
