"Hushboard" vs Clips/Channel

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I will be doing my basement theater ceiling/walls shortly. I'm sure I will get a million different views on this but I am looking at the best bang for the buck. I plan on using Roxul batting for the ceiling and then either using Hushboard by Georgia Pacific or a similar item with sheetrock over that. The alternative would be to use clips and channel and just do the Roxul and sheetrock?

What do you think? Other products to consider?
Thanks in advance.

From their brochure: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&ved=0CDcQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.buildgp.com%2Fdocumentviewer.aspx%3Frepository%3Dbp%26elementid%3D7023&ei=lYoGU_-gGMfd2AXt7oGwAQ&usg=AFQjCNGGK0YJksKRKKuoktYggeVDd7-EXw&sig2=mRPJQLn4eYYewKNDRdIpTg

"Lightweight, low-density panels of Hushboard
trap certain frequencies of noise passing through
walls, from room to room or from exterior to
interior. Hushboard panels combined with 1/2"
or 5/8" gypsum board reduces or traps different
frequency sounds. The gypsum acts to reduce
transmission of lower frequency noise while the
Hushboard panel reduces transmission of higher
frequency noise."

At least they are honest.

The biggest challenge in containing Home Theater noise is the sub-woofer rumble. Hushboard is almost worthless in this area. Use two layer of 5/8 drywall with green glue mounted on a clip and channel system. Read more at soundproofingcompany.com
