  1. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hi all, I'm trying to decide what type of sound insulation roll I add to the ceiling of a basement music room (to protect the kitchen above). Acoustic rolls seem to be significantly more expensive than even the fanciest loft insulation roll, but how much more sound absorption to they give? Is...
  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hello, I am attempting to soundproof a room from baby noises. Most of the sound is coming through the large window (80"x40". they are old and cheap, single pane. Time will come to replace them, but not now). My idea was to build a removable window insert. Kind of a giant pillow, stiffened...
  3. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hi All, I am finishing my basement and building a semi dedicated home theater. we can divide my basement into two parts because of the center beam, then divide one part into two more. So in one part I am building home theater and another part is junk room. The third bigger part is kind of...
  4. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hey All, I'm in the process of finishing my basement and moving all my HT setup down there. Since the ceiling is low (7'), I opted to leave all the joists exposed and sprayed flat black. I would like to put some rockwool in all the ceiling joist cavities above my HT space for both isolation and...
  5. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I recently framed my basement with 2x4 studs on a 2x6 plate staggered 24OC (each side). What is the proper way to insulate? Are there any pictures? I don't think "weaving" is the preferred method. Should I use R19 23" and carve out peices or am I better off simply insulating each side with...

    Is there an appreciable difference? The cost is nominal for R19 fiberglass. Kraft is easier to work with so that's worth the money BUT I'm going to choose whichever will have the best performance even if that is mostly nominal. I looked at Bob Golds and it appears that paper out is better...
  7. Speakers
    Hi, I just purchased 5 pairs of Polk Audio TC60i in-ceiling speakers for my entire main floor. In order to optimize sound quality, I plan to put pieces of batted insulation (Roxul's Safe & Sound's non-combustible stone wool insulation) behind & around each speakers. Will this help to optimize...
  8. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    My wife and I closed today on a new home. "New" to us, but it was built in 1978. I'll apologize in advance if I'm not up on the terminology, it's been years since I have done much of this. At this time, we're not going full-bore on a home theater system, just a TV and soundbar, with blu-ray and...
  9. Theater Room Items & Accessories
    To get this out of the way quickly, my DIY skills are, well, horrible. My experience level is embarrassingly low. With that being said, I need a riser, and unless I want to spend an arm and a leg, it looks like I'm going to have to do this myself. Keeping this in mind, I obviously want to...
  10. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    So I am in the very beginning phases of my basement theater room. Which wall should have sound treatments for reverb control? There will be no other rooms downstairs so horizontal travel I don't have to worry about. The only issue is my wife is not a fan of on-wall sound dampeners (so I'd...
