Not to Necropost...but I'm doing it anyways......if I may piggyback on this thread for one moment:
I've got a small HT in the basement that has a fairly standard drop ceiling, the usual Home Depot (junkish) treatment.
What I want to do is isolate some of the noise my children make upstairs so I don't hear them so much when I'm in my Office which is 'next to' the room
that has the theater bits. (PJ, screen, etc). My home was built in the 60's, for whatever that's worth.
My question is this: Will stuffing (or simply layering) Roxul Safe N Sound batting provide any sort of improvement. I understand
the concept of Sound as Water, and what I am hoping to achieve is not, by any stretch of the imagination, sound proofing. I'm more
interested in taking the edge off the voies and TV sounds, *NOT* the vibrations of running feet, I'm more interested in filtering out high frequencies
rather than low (think: excited kids watching a movie upstairs). Right now, its almost like they are in the same room. as I would be directly beneath.
Right now above the standard HT ceiling tiles there is nothing but joists and pipes and then the plywood for the floor above, onto which a very old pine floor is affixed.
Can I get away with spending some $$$ on Roxul's Sound based product and achieve a bit of sound deadening....or will it be an exercise in throwing
money at the wrong way to fix a problem.
My ideal solution is go to HD, pick up a dozen bags of the stuff, and start popping tiles........but I have a feeling it wont be quite so easy, or is it?
