Additional wall soundproofing resources
Acoustical Reference Only. We do not suggest installing Staggered stud walls due to the shared top and bottom plate. This causes problems in the acoustic performance.
Clips perform two main functions. First, because they are spaced in rows 24″ apart (generally), the drywall is attached with far fewer contact areas. Second, clips and hat track are resilient. They allow a wall to flex, and this increases sound isolation as well as lowering the troublesome primary low frequency resonance point.
Acoustical Reference Only: We do not suggest installing Resilient Channel walls. They test well in the lab but when installed in the field they are seriously prone to malfunction.
Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) is a classic sound transmission blocker, but limited in real life performance. Due to MLV’s flexibility, it is ideal for use with ducts, pipes and steel framing.
Standard 5/8” Type X gypsum wall assembly. Great mass at 70+ pounds a board and cheap at $12 a sheet, but a single layer it does not do much to stop sound.
