Question about acoustic treatment using open cell foam

swampwizJuly 16, 2009

I have a few walls that I would like to have as much acoustic isolation as possible. These walls will be done with staggered studs. I figure that dead air is good, but perhaps some open cell spray foam (or some other type of sprayed material would be better.)

I heard that I could put multiple applications of wallboard; this sounds expensive, but I guess I could for one particularly important location. (How exactly would that be done?)

This particularly important location is a toilet and urinal on the wall directly behind the den, and I don't want the "Archie Bunker syndrome". I will pay any price to make sure that a toilet flush is not heard by someone sitting next next to the wall in complete silence.

Anny ideas or suggestions?

We used cellulose for all the inside bathroom walls plus used solid doors.
