Soundproofing Plus: Some Ideas on How (and Why) to Soundproof a Room

Some Ideas on How (and Why) to Soundproof a Room

When people say they need to soundproof a room, sometimes they mean that a room has echoes or sound reflections. We’ve covered the solution—sound absorption materials—in several other posts.

Sometimes, however, there’s a real need to soundproof a room. Maybe the room is built for high-quality sound: a recording studio, for example, where soundproofing both stops external sound from leaking into sensitive microphones and keeps it quiet outside the studio. Maybe environmental noise is a problem: Traffic, trains, aircraft, or city noise can rumble and bumble to disturb your sleep and make for some pretty tough conversations. Or maybe you’re simply a fan of Michael Bay movies, and the awesome explosions emanating from your home theater have your neighbors doing a duck-and-cover.

Technically speaking, soundproofing means stopping the transmission of sound from one space to another. One way to soundproof a room is to isolate—acoustically “float”—one structural surface from another. Peacemaker, a special, dense, high-mass material, does exactly that: interrupts the transfer of sound and impact noise through walls, floors, and ceilings.

There is a lot of misinformation out there about what soundproofing is and how best to soundproof a room. Before you do anything, talk to a professional (like the ones here at Audimute) to accurately assess your needs and get you on the right path.

Watch our video to understand why Peacemaker works so well, why it’s such a cost-effective solution, and—big bonus—why it’s way more environmentally friendly than every other soundproofing material.
