Re: New build small size high isolation project

The speed is still dazzling! Great job you are doing. And you'll be able to get a bit of a feeling for the isolation, now that the roof is in (except for the lack of doors, of course). Tom, on the door issue: I checked the emails going back, but I don't have the specs for the doors you were talking ...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

:thu: Excellent! I also figured out a way to fit in the sleeves "sideways", so you won't need to do any planing on the shutters.

Re: New build small size high isolation project

Great! While you are up there, could you pull out a tape measure and confirm the clearance between the bottom face of the beams and the flat top of the inner-leaf ceiling? That's my final limiting factor on the silencer boxes.... I know what it SHOULD be, but I'd like to confirm... Also: Did you get...

Re: Attic Shaped Studio

Wow! Excellent work Jennifer. That hole looks like you had a pretty major leak, as you mentioned. Once you finish that up, it will be good to do some more testing, to see how much of a difference it makes. My guess would be: "Very noticeable". The backing rod is amazing stuff, thanks for t...

Ahhh! OK. Got it.

Like this then?

Re: Single Car Carport conversion to studio

If I do normal construction, there will be 1 layer of OSB and a second layer of 5/8" fire rated drywall with green glue between them. I like your idea of not having to search for a stud to hang things. If I do inside out construction, it will just be 2 layers of 5/8 fire rated drywall with GG....

Re: New build small size high isolation project

The back wall to opening is 240mm (closest we could get to get it in the back wall treatment) Front wall to opening is 430... they are close to the edge of the room though so might fit in the soffic enclosures... Just triple checking here: Like this? TOM--Ceiling.HVAC-Penetrations-058.jpg At both t...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

I sent them end of last week! Ah so sorry you haven’t received the email!
Figured it out: G-mail thinks you are spam! I just found several e-mails from you in my Spam folder, so I'll take a look at those and get back to you on anything that still needs an answer.

Sorry about that!

Re: New build small size high isolation project

...sorry! Bit ahead of ourselves! :thu: :) I know somewhere local that we can get 3m lock mdf sheets but that’s still going to have a join. If we stagger the join, I was assuming they are at least 2 sheets thick and glued and pinned... or just glued and clamped? That should be fine. It looks like t...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

I sent them end of last week! Ah so sorry you haven’t received the email! Weird! I didn't get that. I'll check my Spam folder. Could be something to do with the demonstrations here, and the crazy ISP I'm using right now... I'll try to figure it out... Anyway: The outside of the holes measure 435 x ...

Re: New build small size high isolation project

It's zooming along at break-neck speed, Tom! Wow. I'm ready with the inner-leaf silencer design (all air flow calculations done, basic box design ready), and I just need to know the locations of the holes in the ceiling to finalize it. Right now, the sleeves are about 285mm wide, 345mm deep, and abo...

Re: Single Car Carport conversion to studio

Great! That's an excellent start on your 3D SketchUp design. 1. The gap between the stud frames of the inner and outer walls. In the model I have 1" between them all except at the front, because the garage door is going to need more because of the way it's built. Is that enough? Probably, yes. ...

Bad measurement mic...

Just a quick rant from me, to get this forum area started: I strongly dislike the Behringer ECM-8000 acoustic measurement mic! It's a disaster. There's not many mics I completely avoid, but this one I do. Build quality is poor, there's a factory defect in many mics that leaves the internal grounding...

Re: Amp Riser Effectiveness

Thanks for the update and the testing, Jennifer! That's great to have positive feedback on how the concept works in practice. If you have a chance, it would be fantastic to see results for the "magical myths" as well: carpet, towels, blankets, bits of rubber, tennis balls ... :) :shot: - S...
