Soundproofing/Room Acoustics Treatment thread
« on: June 12, 2006, 07:33:11 PM »
good day.
i need help in soundproofing my room.
where should i buy the stuffs for soundproofing? (locally ha)
and how to construct it na hindi masyado mahalang magagastos. :lol:

the ideal design on blocking the sound para hindi makalabas
sa other side of the wall.

i will make a partition dividing 1 room into two rooms.
how to make this partition soundproof.

thanks.


i'm just a simple person who really loves music.

pre mahal talaga mag soundproof ng room. the cheapest way is to heavily dampen your drum heads and cymbals. you might not get the most sound out of your kit but it will do well it your only practicing exercises.

but if you still want to build a sound proof room, well the best is still to build another room inside your room. give a few inches clearance between the outer room and inner room. isolate the ceiling and the floor too. the inner room can have concrete walls but double walling with plywood will do (maybe 3-5 walls). the goal is too lessen the vibration from the inner room going to the outermost wall. no vibration = no sound. you can use a special foam inbetween the walls to dampen the vibration further.

egg cartons do not lessen noise, they just deflect high frequencies to reduce echo inside the room. this gives you the illusion that you are sound proofing.

nice meeting you sa eb pre!

thanks for your reply.

i have this room na gusto ko i divide into two. lagyan ko ng partition to make it two rooms.
in constructing this partition, mas ok ba using gypsum board or hardiflex with the acoustic foam inbetween insted of plywoods to block the sound para hindi marinig sa kabilang side?

thanks again master peeves

doesnt matter if you use gypsum or hardiflex kasi isa lang yung floor mo between the rooms. useless yung walls kung hindi ka gagawa ng riser for the floor at isa pang internal ceiling. yung floor ang magseserve na medium para mag travel yung sound

as much as possible, dapat minimal yung contact nung inner walls, floor at ceiling mo dun sa outer room.

suggestion ko lang, if you are really concerned about your neighbors, buy an electronic drumset like roland vdrums. kasi for the cost of sound proofing, you'd be able to afford 100k worth of equipment.

-back to my previous suggestion-

my drum room is not sound proofed. i used to regularly play from 6pm to 7pm on weekdays. on weekends i play around 3pm to 7pm. my neighbors got used to it so i dont get complaints. id never hit the drums full on during regular hours and never past 8pm. id put rubber over the heads and do not use cymbals if and when i really want to play.

ei mga kuya ano ba mga materials na pede gamitin sa soundproofing?
at anong gagawin sa materials na yon. (pano ilagay, ano gagamitin na pandikit, etc..)

The best na gawin mo ay magpunta ka sa mga practice/recording studio.Dun malamang makakuha ka ng mas malinaw na impormasyon tungkol sa sound proofing.Magtanong mo din tungkol sa Presyo at kung saan nakakabili at paano i-install.
Pwede ka din mag search sa net.Type mo lang "Soundproofing for home recording studio" Sigurado meron kang mahahagilap na tips at info.Gud lukk!

Di ako pwede mag comment jan.Madaming factors ang dapat i consider para matiyak kung bakit "onting onti" lang ang tunog dun sa studio kamo...
Hmmmmm....baka barbecue stick ang gamit mo!Heee he he Joke lang!:lol:  

Mahirap na ipaliwanag ko sa iyo 'to bro.Di ako expert sa Acoustics e.
Pero sa pagkakaalam ko.Ganun talaga ang epekto ng gypsum board at iba pang soundproofing materials. Kino control nito ang resonance ng tunog.Nababawasan ang high frequencies(kalansing) mas mabilis ang decay ng tunog kaya parang mahina sa pandinig mo.
Search na lang sa internet muna!

nope, illusion lang yun kasi na diffuse yung high frequencies kaya kala mo humina yung tunog but in fact walang pagbabago sa sound pressure level.

add ko na lang din, fire hazzard ang egg trays safer pang gumamit ka na lang ng makapal na tela tapos hang mo sa mga dingding same effect din. meron ka pang control kung gusto mong makalansing o hindi yung room mo (hawiin mo lang sa tabi yung kurtina)

sound proofing is yung hindi maririnig sa labas ng kwarto yung sound na galing sa loob. nagresearch na rin ako tungkol dyan. nung nakapagbasabasa ako ng mga payo at resources eh kinalimutan ko na lang. mahal kasi pala talaga magagastos mo. :roll:  sorry wala akong naitulong sayo. hehe

para madali, hollow blocks nalang gamitin mo. walang bintana ang kwarto at dapat parang "waterproof" na  hindi sisingaw (leak) ang sound palabas ng kwarto. pati ang pinto pag sinarado, kailangan walang cracks o openings kung saan pwede sumingaw ang sound. maganda rin ang "room within a room" concept na parang doble ang wall/ceiling/floor para siguradong hindi tatagos ang sound. ito ang alam kong pinaka madali at murang paraan mag soundproof ng kwarto. tunay na akustik engineer ang nagturo nito sa akin.

hope this helps.

hindi yan pwede pang soundproofing. para sa acoustic treatment, pwede pa siguro.
