Thanks for your reply to my YouTube comment re: the terrible sound of drywall.

My question was about ameliorating the terrible sound of drywall. Unfortunately a dedicated room is out of the question so my living room functions as my listening and TV viewing room. I know it will not work as a high quality listening enviroment, but I’d like to do something about the terrible tinny drywall sound.

My room is 17 feet wide x 12 feet long with a 9 foot ceiling. Too much bass fortunately is not an issue due to the levels I can listen at. Accordingly I have small speakers (6.5 in. mid-bass driver. -6db at 40hz).

J, You must cover the surface areas that are producing the drywall sound. Start with the side walls left and right.
