    Hello everyone, I’m working on finishing my first home theater. I’ve read through so much information in an effort to get everything right, my head is spinning. I’m stuck on how to properly soundproof around my gas meter. I’m doing DD and GG with isolation clips on my walls and ceilings...

    Hi all Disclaimer... I'm not building a home theatre but rather a woodwork shop. I figure (hope) that the people into noisy entertainment rooms might have a lot of interest in not annoying the neighbors!... I use very noisy high pitched routers etc. I am already familiar with the double stud...

    Hey all- I have extra 29 oz tubes of Titebond Acoustical Sound Sealant. Many...many cases available; all stored indoors. Price is $6 per tube or $60 per case of 12 ($5 per tube). Willing to ship from MN, but I'd recommend local pickup in the Twin Cities area. This stuff isn't light. Thanks!

    My house has a downstairs study in the front, but in the kitchen there are two built in desk spaces, so a study is really not needed. So I'm converting it to a small home theater! 5.1.4 with 4k Projector and 120" screen in a room that's 12' deep. It will be cozy, but awesome. Goals: 1...

    This is my design for this small dedicated home theater. I'm doing a 5.1.4 setup, but I'm just seeking some guidance on whether or not my speaker placement is good. Specifically if it's a problem for the right surround to be so much farther away than the left, and if the atmos speakers are...

    Greetings, I have been reading on this forum about soundproofing, albeit for a music cave, not for the home theater. My first step to limit sound exiting the music cave was to isolate it as much as possible. Attached is a partial floor plan which shows the room behind the garage and with dual...

    I'm so impressed with the expertise on this site and I'm sure that somewhere on this forum is advice on my situation, I just can't find it. I live in the lower half of an old, 1915 up/down duplex and want to do some soundproofing to lessen the impact and vibration noises from above. The...

    I recently bought a new house that has a large bonus room above the garage which I turned into a home theater. When I moved in I slapped on a projector and screen to the equipment I already owned just to get me up and running. I had a 7.2 system with Audiocontrol receiver and triad speakers. My...

    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 "interviewed" the companies and this company knew their stuff (based on the tremendous knowledge I gained...

    Hello - I've run into the common quandary with de-coupled (2-leaf) walls: How to maintain the de-coupling through door openings? To my surprise, Rod Gervais in his excellent book, states that a through-jamb does not significantly affect sound isolation. Those illustrations (figures 5.6...

    Hi everyone. Long-time lurker, first time posting. Im looking for some advice on a basement refinish and soundproofing project. I have a problem that I cant seem to find a resolution for, and I think it may be the deal-breaker for my soundproofing efforts. Background: I have some tentative...

    Hi all, I currently have a sound leakage issue in my living room, where audio from a TV near the back wall radiates to adjoining rooms. Currently it is drywall directly attached to studs, no insulation. I am planning on built-ins against the wall, with the TV mounted to a 'false wall' (for lack...

  16. This and That
    Original plan differed from the semi finished room so I have a lot of clips remaining. Not sure if they can be returned at this point since I have been holding onto them for 2 years. Planned to return them when I finished drywall but I still have not completed that. Not sure what the current...

    First time poster here, so I can't post direct links, but you can copy/paste them and remove the spaces. I've spent hours getting smart on how to both contain the sound in basement theater as well as mitigate any sounds coming from above. I've all but decided to go with what has been described...

    I am going to be getting my basement finished which has a dedicated home theater location planned. The spot for the theater has been dropped an extra 2 feet lower than the rest of the basement. My main objective for this theater is to have a great movie experience with amazing bass that I can...

    So I have been given free reign of the basement and am starting off by building the home theater that I have always dreamed of. Only, I am somewhat stumped on where to begin. I have recently found Sketchup, and have attached a few crude renderings of what I have in mind, but maybe you good...
