What do you recommend for treatment of a residential ceiling that just has subfloor and Joists. I will definitely have 808 tones from time to time to manage and I have 8 foot high ceilings. Is there a system that you recommend?

I will need to know much more about your room to assist you.

Fill out the information in this link. Photos are always a good thing of all surfaces.

Dennis,

What type of 3/4” plywood do you suggest for the ceiling. I am using insulation in my joists to create my diaphragmatic filter and not sure if I should use the finished birch wood or pine or just the cheaper subfloor plywood??? They range in price from $20-$60.

Thanks in advance!

K, It depends on the look that you want. It's the density that creates the diaphragm.

K, A clear coat seal will prevent moisture retention and dirt penetration.

Awesome thank you sir as usual! I must be the longest running unfinished project of yours. LOL
But once I get it done I’m going to invite you to Hershey PA to come check it out! ????
