During a recent house renovation, we had 5 JBL in-ceiling speakers installed in the family room to play music and use for HT. We've been surprised at the sound that can be heard in the kids-rooms above. Bad news for dad, since the HT can't be on once our young kids go to bed. Any advice/suggestions to dampen the sound.

Hmmm ... This seems odd since earlier this year we had 12 JBL in-ceiling speakers installed throughout the first floor of our home and have experienced no such problems. My wife and kids claim to hear nothing upstairs even when our HT system is playing loudly. However, other than in the bathrooms, our entire second floor is carpeted. Might you have hardwood flooring upstairs?

You're right, I have hardwood floors upstairs.


I'm encouraged that you installed speakers and that they cannot be heard upstairs. So you have wall-to-wall carpeting?

Yes, wall-to-wall upstairs that was installed with fairly thick padding.
