Soundproof Your Theater Room, or the Master Bedroom - bow chicka bow wow!

Do you have a home theater room?

Are there times where you want to fire it up and enjoy your system but its too late at night and the kids are sleeping? 

Or, your wife would rather be in the other room doing the dishes, talking on the phone, reading, or listening to girl power music? (J-Lo and Brittany Spears are rockin' often at my home... ugh!)

That's cool.  That's her thing - but I don't want to hear it... I want to enjoy the UFC fight, or really dive into the latest thriller on bluray and fully enjoy the high definition picture and surround sound!

There are times when we all sit down as a family and enjoy the system, but often my beautiful system goes un-used because its just too distracting for everybody else in the home.

If I could build my house over again, I would've definitely added sound proofing!

So how is it done?

While the house is under construction, after the insulation goes up, and just before sheetrock is installed, soundproofing material is stapled and secured to the studs, fully enclosing and soundproofing the room.  All seams are sealed with a special tape and all wall boxes/openings are caulked with a special adhesive to minimize sound penetration.

Here are a few before/after photos showing what it looks like while under construction at a recent project of ours:


This particular theater room has a false wall which will contain floor standing speakers and a custom equipment rack.  When its all said and done, the rack and speakers will be flush behind the wall.  The 7.2 surround sound system in all its awesomeness will be fully contained and completely soundproof from the rest of the house.

Here's a quick video which goes into a bit more detail and shows how I demonstrate to clients who visit our showroom:



There are several other applications for soundproofing.  Are there other rooms that you'd like to contain noise in?  Maybe the master bedroom? (*wink *wink).



So how much does it cost?  About $2.00 per square foot.  -  Well worth it in my opinion.  What good is a home theater system if you can't enjoy it!?

  2. That's a reasonable price to pay to enjoy quality music at home. It is really annoying when you want to blast your music, really immerse in it but you have to remember what time of the day it is or show consideration for your neighbors. I would definitely recommend that any family invest in a soundproof room for movies and music.
