Whether you’re turning your basement into a home theatre or your garage into a music studio, you’ll need to think about how the project will impact your entire home.
The right soundproofing solution is especially important for a home theatre or music studio, since it needs to serve two purposes: giving you the best possible audio quality inside the room, while limiting the noise for the people outside.
SONOPAN is a 4′ x 8′, 19 mm thick eco-friendly soundproofing panel designed to promote peace and harmony with your basement neighbours.
This environmentally friendly panel features cavities of varying dimensions and depths on both sides.
SONOPAN absorbs a wide range of frequencies and significantly reduces the transmission of sound and vibrations from your basement rental unit.
How much soundproof insulation do I need?
First, you’ll need to determine how many dB’s (decibels) of sound your home theatre will create:
For sounds above 100 dB we recommend our Extreme Soundproofing solution, which combines both SONOPAN and REFLEXOR.
How is sound transmitted through walls?
Sound (mostly bass) is transmitted from your home theatre to adjacent rooms through your home’s studs and joists. The studs and joists are connected with every other stud and joist in your home. That’s why some sounds from one room can be heard throughout the entire home.
My home theatre is in the basement. Do I just need to soundproof the ceiling?
Sound can travel through your home’s whole structure. Soundproof the walls and ceilings of your basement using our Extreme Soundproofing solution.
What is the best way to soundproof a professional music studio?
Requirements for a professional music studio may be beyond the abilities of the do-it-yourselfer. It may be best to consult an acoustic engineer and/or contractor for best results.
