Thermal transfer & sound reduction
Posts: 6
April 27, 2021 - 11:46 pm


My new studio project is currently in the open frame phase.
The climate here shifts from negative temps in the winter to over 100 in the summer. Since this is a top floor peaked ceiling, thermal considerations are very important to this build.

I built another similar room that was smaller in the past. I built the inside like a commercial walk in refrigerator. Heavy bat insulation with covered with 1 inch foil faced insulation board over top of all the studs, glued in place, all gaps caulked & sealed, foil tape over the seems.
Drywall was glued over that.

It was very very cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

And it was really quiet inside.

Now to my question?

I would like to do the same thing with this new room, but skin the Drywall with glued on plywood as a base to improve the rooms sound quality.

Understanding that I will be installing LF, and mid / high treatments after the room is analyzed

Do I run any low frequency risks with this combination of 1 inch foam foil face, + drywall, + plywood in a sandwich?

The room dimensions are odd, since it is 8 X 12 X 24
Plus it also has two 4X4 dormers, and a 6X4 dormer. And two points in the ceiling are 10 foot peaks at 4 foot wide and it has a small 4x4 storage niche and an attached 4x6 half bath with a 28 inch door opening into the room

Thanks πŸ˜ΊπŸ‘
