I've read a 2014 post on here about sound proofing an apartment ceiling. It recommended to: Install "Resilient Channel" on existing ceiling; Install "Sonopan" sound deadening insulation between the Resilient Channel, and cover everything with "Quiet Rock" drywall. For best results screw Resilient Channel into joist/framing.
My question: is this "still the best sound proofing option" available?
In a conversion at my local hardware store ... they tell me, nothing will sound proof, only reduce. My sanity is at stake...lol...so I'd like the best options, to do it once and do it well.
Thanks in advance,
The guy a the hardware store is correct.
Sound travels down joist, plumbing, and so on. In past experience using resilient channel helps trap sound only if you apply a higher grade insulation and 2 layers of 5/8 drywall.
The noise will be reduced but dog barking, and any type of sound that is a deep low frequency won't be completely gone.
