Site-built door pair, for high isolation.

Using MLV as a sanwich in a door would be a good if you need to add mass to the door while not adding much thickness and you don't have any need for the MLV where it might be better employed, eg. being a limp mass or being wrapped around something where plasterboard/drywall would be difficult or imp...

How To Calibrate and Use REW To Test and Tune Your Room Acoustics

2276 Is there a good place to go for room treatment stuff? Stuart mentioned building your own. That is something I did a few years ago for about 20% of the cost of buying ready-made traps, so well worth it. If you have the money and lack the interest to make your own, GIK Acoustics is a well-enough...

Home studio design - first step, a door!

Steve, I can't say I know exactly what you need but if you can't get anything (that Stuart says is) suitable, maybe one of us here in Europe can source the right thing and send it to you. The rolls of backer rod you showed earlier both look fine from the image. I have used mostly 6mm (because the sh...

New Home Studio Build

Stuart Jason, how are you doing? Has there been any progress with your studio? Covid-19 and storm Isaias are probably not helping.

Stuart, I appreciate that you don't simply make claims but you go to great lengths to explain truths and challenge misconceptions. Where you say in The truth about Green Glue , "... don't use it (unless you need very high isolation ..." maybe John deduced from my description, details, data...

Hi Jag94, the ventilator you have linked to is a single room ventilator, that is why it goes in the room you are in. At the same company, look instead ( on this page ) at residential or commercial ventilators, where the unit is placed not in the same room - it will ideally be placed in a room or spa...

Beefing up door: Frame to Stud question

That is good news on your door and useful advice from Paul and Stuart. 2046 In the UK the caulk should be intumescent stuff as it's a fire door. I had to look up intumescent. Intumescence is an interesting topic for studio building where not everything is fire-rated. I like the idea of intumescent p...

2217 Did you have any green glue between the layers of plasterboard? No I don't. Let me anticipate someone asking, "Why not?" John H. Brandt is the designer of my studio. John says ( in the next 18 seconds of this video ) that Green Glue is good but also that he rarely uses Green Glue in ...

Now the ceiling is finished it is time to build the walls up to meet the ceiling. I didn't want to build the walls before the ceiling as the weight of the whole, completed ceiling needs to hang freely, allowing the isolation mounts to compress as much as they need.

I don't believe Stuart because I am on my 33rd tube of caulk at the moment. YMMV but I expect a (single) tube may not be enough.
