Soundproofing Plus: Using Audimute Peacemaker to Create a Soundproof Wall

Using Audimute Peacemaker to Create a Soundproof Wall

Previous posts have covered the many benefits of using Peacemaker sound insulation to create a soundproof wall. Now it’s time to consider how to actually get soundproofing up and working for you.

If you’re not up to speed on soundproofing, and if you haven’t already consulted with an expert (like, for example, the good people here at Audimute), get caught up now—before you begin construction. It’s the only way to make sure you’ll get it right the first time and not do any extra work. We’ve covered the basics here [link to blog 4], and we’ll be happy to provide an individualized diagnosis in person. Just call (866-505-MUTE).

OK, so you know where you’re going. How do you get there? The good news is that it’s really simple to use Peacemaker to soundproof a wall (or a floor, or a ceiling, or even a car—yes, some customers have successfully done that). Let’s see how it works.

Peacemaker is designed to be directly installed onto a wall or other surface. For example, let’s make a hypothetical soundproof wall.

If the wall is just wood or metal studs when you start, attach Peacemaker right to the studs, taking care not to leave any areas uncovered. Use insulation between the studs for best results, and seal the seams with Peacemaker sound isolation tape—soundproofing is only as effective as its weakest point.

Ideally, Peacemaker is part of a soundproofing “sandwich”—so if you’re looking at drywall that’s already installed, don’t worry. Just apply Peacemaker over the top, add another layer of drywall, and you’re on your way to having a soundproof wall. Need more soundproofing? Build a bigger sandwich, with another layer of Peacemaker and another layer of drywall.

Remember that low frequencies require a greater amount of soundproofing and, possibly, some different materials. As a general rule, thicker is better, but (yes … again) consult an expert.

If you’re not the sandwich-building type, Peacemaker will work when it’s applied directly to a wall or other surface, but remember a few things: It’s not really designed to be a finished surface, it’s not sound absorption, and you’ll get better soundproofing when it’s part of layered construction.

So get the facts and some good advice, get the right stuff, and set aside a weekend to make things nice and quiet. With Audimute and some elbow grease, a soundproof wall is well within reach.
