so my dad kicked me and all my music stuff out of our basement cause it was right below the kitchen, and now im trying to sound proof another room. we got a couple of mattresses up, carpets, pillows, some comverters and misc stuffed animals, but what about blow up air beds, how good would those work? and what else could i do?

thanks

...Buy soundproofing tiles?
They aren't that expensive.

If the neighbours complain about your music, play it louder untill they move out.

Yeah, just buy some sound proofing foam, or use egg cartons to save money (I'm serious).

egg cartons do work

that egg carton foam stuff works too and is a heluva lot cheaper than soundproofing foam

Maybe you could I don't know...turn your volume down.


That's the worst advice I've ever heard!

it won't work...think about the surface of the bed...it's elastic and should vibrate a lot. the mattress is filled with air--the most common medium for sound propagation. people have had some good ideas in here so far. soundproofing tiles wouldn't work because those are more for acoustically treating rooms instead of soundproofing...acoustic treating is meant to change the propagation of sound waves so that it sounds good recorded, not so much to seal out sound from one place from another.

I thought egg cartons were used to improve the acoustics of the room...

we got our garage converted into a music room. the builders put all this soundproofing insulation stuff behind the plasterboard...it wasn't very expensive, maybe you could get some of that?
