hey guys, wat are some of your cheap and effective methods to sounding proofing a room to help muffle out some of the noise. the problem is my new band needs a quick and easy fix to lower the vol , well without the lowering the vol. it has to be easy to put it up and down and cheap, like a ghetto way lol. o right im not sure if this is the right forum to post but if it isnt im sure it will be moved. thnx in advance

Both of the above posts are right. I think.

As far as egg cartons go just ask a local restaurant that serves breakfast if they have any egg cartons you can take home. They should have tons of them in the big industrial sized flats.

Thick blankets, like quilts or comforters would work. Maybe two layers. Stapling cardboard egg cartons would work too, but thats alot of eggs to eat/get rid of somehow. I think if you wanna take it down sometimes, the blanket idea would work decently well. Be sure to seal around the doors and windows too, that would help some.

I can't explain to you, I just know it works.

I saw it on a kids science show called Popular Mechanics For Kids when I was eight.

Egg cartons aren't actually soundproof. The design of the egg cartons breaks the direction of the sound waves and causes them to go in different directions, reducing echo and amplification. However, they don't actually absorb sound. But yes, they do reduce sound to an extent. Look up pictures of an anechoic (soundproof) chamber, and then you'll get the idea.
Wave goodbye to the past.

My band has actually been using my bedroom as our practice room for a while now, until we find someplace better. What we did was wrapped a piece of cardboard, and stuck it inbetween the glass and mesh frames in the window, and that helped alot. We also Hung 2 Large Comforters over my door, and shoved another comforter into the little space at the bottom of the door.

And for the walls, i have a few walls guitar hooks up, so we hung blankets from those, and draped blankets over the entertainment and stuff. It seemed to work VERY well.

Moral of the story is.... Blankets.... lots, and lots of blankets.
