Sound-Proofing A Basement or Garage

If your converting a basement or garage to a music studio or just setting it up for band practice then you should have sound-proofing. Current sound-proofing is expensive and in addition to that you still have the echo's to worry about. You could minimize the echo's with acoustic foam if you have the money or egg cartons if you don't.


The Sound Proofing Part

If you're on a real budget and need sound proofing you can find some old mattresses or carpet and hang them on the wall. This will work, sorta, however you may have smells and mold to worry about. Another sound-proofing solution is paying around $2.00 per square foot for a sound proofing material that provides around 26 decibels of sound reduction. Once the sound proofing material is installed on just your walls and/or ceilings your already into the thousands of dollars. If the floor is concrete or carpet you will be ok, if the floor is a wood or laminate based you will need to get a mat under the drums to minimize floor vibrations.


Sound Proofing, Egg Cartons, Acoustic Foam & Echo's

First you need to understand that sound proofing does just that. It provides sound proofing and nothing else. The sound proofing doesn't let sound out and doesn't let sound in. Egg cartons have no real sound-proofing value whatsoever. There sound proofing value is as good as hanging some cardboard on the wall. So why are egg cartons popular? Echo reduction.
In addition to having sound proofing you need to be able to control the echo's. This is generally where you would purchase acoustic foam, or for the budget conscious, use egg cartons. So why does an egg carton do a similar job as expensive acoustic foam?


How the Echo's Work With Sound Proofing, Acoustic Foam and Egg Cartons

How echo's work is the sound bounces off a wall in a straight line like 2 mirrors on each side of the room. It's this action that causes the echo's. The acoustic foam, or egg cartons, break the direction of the sound waves and causes them to go in consistently different directions until the sound wave has run out of gas. This action caused by the acoustic foam or egg cartons helps minimize the effects of echo's. The benefit of acoustic foam is that it will somewhat absorb the sound waves as well.

This means you get the benefits of 26decibels of sound proofing and because the dimples are concave, just like an egg carton, it refracts the sound waves and minimizes the echo effect. In addition to having concave dimples, the dimples also offer a dead air space, which helps the sound proofing effect even further.


Price of Sound Proofing & Acoustic Foam
