Is there any real difference between 'acoustic caulk' and a high quality
latex or silicone caulk? I've noticed that the local Home Depot has a bunch
of different kinds of latex and silicone caulk, but no acoustic caulk.

"Acoustic caulk' does not harden like regular latex or silicone caulk.
Bulldog Grip makes a product that Home Depot sells up here in Canada - I
would assume you can get the same stuff down in Nashville. The key word
to look for is "non-hardening".

although it does appear that most silicone caulk (or most of the items
through Home Depot's) sold is non hardening. Probably not always but sure
seems that way. In any case look for something that states 30 year
guarantee for non hardening. It shouldn't be difficult to find at all.

I got Drywall brand Acoustical Caulk from the lumber yard in the huge tubes. A
large gun was a $5 investment (compared to $1.50 for the little guns).

BTW, Drywall suggest the caulk be layed on the studs before the interior
sheathing
as a docoupler, similar to or instead of using rc channel. I haven't contacted
them
re the actual STL ratings in this application method, and havent' heard anyone
use
the caulking as they have suggested, so don't know if this is effective or not.

I plan to use it to caulk holes. I'll probably lay it down as they suggest as
well,
in an attempt to keep interior sheathing from transmitting through to the studs.
I'll save rc channel for a final layer of drywall if I still need more STL.
