door in corner of room

Postby raver_tom » Fri May 24, 2013 8:10 am

I have recently put acoustic tiles on my walls and ceiling(75mmthick) as well as bass traps with corner kits however in one corner of the room there is a door and it has a huge impact on the sound proofing. It seems that the only sound escaping is where the door is there anything I could do to balance it out I don't want to buy anything until I'm sure it will work.

Do you think its possible to reinforce the door with fibre glass panels or something don't want to waste my money.

Acoustic tiles and bass traps are NOT for sound proofing.
Sound proofing needs mass and sealing. What you did is adding absorbing.

Is it an interior door or an exterior door?, solid core or hollow core? in what condition is the weather striping?

its an interior door its a cheap and hollow think it cost like £30 I've positioned the acoustics correctly. There's like no sound coming through the walls its just that the door is cheap and flimsy.

Soundproofing, in order
- airtight
- heavy
- damping
- decoupled

(for doors, decoupled usually means an airlock with two doors)
(for rooms, there are things you can do with HVAC to handle the 'airtight' restriction)
(airtight is most easily handled with an exterior door and jamb)

I'm not actually sure if the original poster is asking about soundproofing,
or balanced symmetric absorption.

re 'balanced symmetric absorption'
has he put up absorption to create an reflection free zone, except for a door that's reflective, and can't figure out what to put on the back of the door?


There's also Bert's pondering: is the original poster hoping that absorption will handle soundproofing -- which it can't.
