Keep in mind, sound isolation is about keeping the room quiet not to about keeping sound from leaving the room. It will mitigate it significantly, but won't completely block it out. It is a whole lot easier suppressing 40dB at a limited frequency range than it is blocking out 105 dB or more at greater range. This is one reason why I dislike the word "soundproofing". You're not soundproofing anything, and I sincerely believe it completely confuses people. If you want...
The office is actually insignificant in regards to cooling. Further, if you sound isolate, and you add a window unit, you add a lot of additional noise, so you might not have isolated at all. It becomes a waste of money. Consider this, for very person in the theater add 500 BTU/hr. plus any additional equipment in the room that is not properly ventilated, and that room will become hot very quickly prompting you to open the door and thus mitigating all sound isolation...
Hi Dizzy, I'll chime in here. First thing I would do is put the equipment list on hold. Second thing is decide whether you plan to isolate or not. That is going to determine equipment needs down the road. Then, decide the exact layout of the room. You should also show a side elevation in addition to your floor plan. Height has huge considerations, and there have been a lotta "oopsies" due to this aspect. Third, really consider why you want heights and wides. Can a...
Let me reply to this DIY theater...Terry did an absolutely stunning, first rate professional job on building this theater. He did all the woodwork himself, and is on par with some of the best I've seen! My jaw dropped in amazement on the quality of his craftsmanship. Terry did the real work, I had the easy parts. Hats off to you sir! Anyone living in the DFW area and you are building a theater...you should get this guy on your side!
We are working on a link to the website. Stay tuned! Otherwise, contact Jeff directly for additional info.
I would highly recommend solidifying your plans first before choosing equipment. You need to define what you need before you research equipment. Sure eliminates most of the competition.
There are several: Rives Audio Performance Media industries Acoustic Frontiers (in the Bay Area) Erskine Group (IMAX and THX certified room specialists) and several more!! Lots to choose from. These are just a few!
Yes I would isolate them. There are many things you can do. You can wrap duct board around them, remove sections of the duct and make sections out of different material, or you can look at flex duct. Low frequency vibration will likely penetrate enough where it could resonate the duct cavity. This will be dependant on length of runs. When it happens, it is very annoying. Second, you might want to find a way to get forced air into that room. Otherwise, it's going to...
Ah! Things are much clearer now! 36" is great unless your chairs are butted up along the left wall?
