    I'm putting 2 layers of 5/8 drywall on genie clips with hat channel. My question is about the second layer that uses Green Glue: I cannot find a clear answer for this but where do you put the screws on the second layer? Do they go on the hat channel again or do you just go for the first layer...

    Hi All - I'm in the very early stages of planning my dedicated HT room, and taking a hard look at what it's going to take to isolate the room from the family room floor above it. By reading this forum as well as the info on soundproofingcompany.com, it looks like hat channels and isolation...

    All the forum posts on noise reduction/isolation got me thinking about how I could incorporate some of that technology/methodology into our remodel. Since our HT and 2CH system is not in a dedicated room but in the living room on the second floor, I thought it was a great opportunity to try...

    Hi! I have a room 9"x10" that I will be attaching two sheets 5/8" sheet rock (with green glue) to the ceiling on hat channel & whisper clips. The joists run parallel to the 9" walls.

    I just started hanging my ceiling drywall and I had a box of #6 fine thread 1 1/4 inch drywall screws. They seemed to work ok but I stripped out the channel on a few so I wanted to see if that was the right solution before I go too far. Out of my searches it sounds like I should be using #8...

    Hello friends, Tomorrow I'll have my insulation inspection, and then it's time for drywall. I'm building my theater on a budget, but I want to get as much sound absorption as possible so that my wife will actually let me use the theater. The plan was to use resilient channel + double 5/8's...

    I'm going to be installing RSIC (whisper clips) plus two layers of drywall and green glue on my ceiling and one interior wall. (For three exterior walls, I may use the staggered stud construction.) I'm also going to be building boxes for my recessed lights. For the walls, I was thinking...

    I am using Whisper Clips, and have gone around town and I am not able to find any furring/hat channel that is between 2 1/2" - 2 5/8". Lots of them are at 2 3/4" and I have seen on the forum that it is not advised by most to use them (really tight fit to get it in there). I have been able to...
