Dear Polk Enthusiasts,
I have been a Polkster for the last 8 years and am going to move into a condo in the next few weeks. I am currently remodeling the place and would like to sound proof 2 of the rooms so that my neighbors cannot hear me or I them. I was told to build a "Party Wall" against the existing walls to acheive moderate-heavy sound proofing.
I plan on putting horizontal studs against the vertical ones in the existing wall, this is to minimize the contact between the walls and vibrations. I am then going to use material I found at Home Depot called Sound Deadening Board. These come in 1/2 inch thick sheets which I want to double up on. Also using acoustical insulation(Pink Panther) and silicone to seal holes and minimize vibrations. The walls I intend to build with Backerboard, heavier and more dense than sheetrock.
My question is, has anybody had experience with Sound Deadening Board, or any sound proofing in an apartment or condo? I am curious to know what methods worked well and coments are appreciated.
