Acoustical tile BETWEEN joists for noise?
Nearing the drywall stage in finishing our basement and I'm still trying to investigate relatively inexpensive sound attenuation options. The goal is to reduce noise traveling up through the ceiling into the first floor area (not the other way around).
I understand that acoustical tile works well, but we don't have the height for a drop ceiling and we are hoping to avoid the cost of nice-looking acoustical tile and a track system. But (admittedly without looking at pricing), I was wondering if buying and cutting acoustical tile to fit up in our joists (against the floor boards above) before installing insulation and sheetrock would help?
Probably a crazy idea, but I thought I'd ask.
