    Hi all, I have hired a soundproofing company to do my room construction for my theater, so they know what they are doing, but they don't have much experience in dedicated theater design.

    I have a room which has concrete walls all around which should hold the sound within reason to the adjacent rooms which I am not too concerned about as 2 are to the outside of the house, 1 to the hall, and 1 to an office.
