How to make my attic acoustics better?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'd like to consult some HT gurus here who have carried out Room acoustics renovations in your home.

 

I have an attic in my house. The floor is made of thin vinyl tiles. Underlying this are horizontal wooden beams. My attic is trapezium shaped with a height of about 6m, length and width 10m by 8 m.

 

My problem now is when I play HT or my music, my family can hear some boominess in the bedrooms downstairs. Thus I'd like to try and prevent this sound leakage from my attic. Another constraint I face is that this being an attic, I cannot make the flooring too heavy.

 

I have thought of a solution. I am considering putting a layer of high quality foam on top of existing vinyl tiles followed by a layer of plywood. Would this be a good enough solution to reduce noise transference from my attic?

 

Please chip in with your valuable input. Much appreciated.

You need to get some sound absorbing material to dampen those sound.

I'm by no means experienced nor knowledgeable on this field, so maybe others can suggest the most eficient way of doing this.

 

If not, you can always google them and find what you need.

Thanks Dmateo. Maybe my solution is as simple as installing laminated wood flooring, with a foam underlay and hanging some carpets on the walls. I'm trying to still make the attic more cosy and preferably not filled with all types of foam sticking out of the walls.
