    home theater people....

    if you were to build a new house, what if anything, could be done to the walls while being built to have better sound, etc. I know it is kinda a vague question, but my dad is finisihing up his house and wants to make one room just for all his stereo stuff.

    Do 2 layers of sheetrock.
    The first one is put up regular, the next sheet put up backwards.
    It deadenes the wall and makes it soundproof.





    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
    the sweetness of that cheap price!

    Do some Google searches for audio room treatments...find out what the soundstage is doing in-room, and what can be done to account for it.

    Jmac...sometimes you need to work on your sarcasm

    What if there's an ambulance stuck behind you when you're watching a movie ?

    But if you make your house soundproof, how will sound get in ?
    Do trees make sound?

    Do bears **** in the woods?

    Hmm...
