"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

Well, I have two questions about ripping the wall apart (and it would have to be an interior wall or a second wall beyond the insulation of an exterior wall).

 

1. What measurements show significant energy resonating behind the sheetrock in the cavities formed by the studs?

 

2. Those things that look like perforated masonite - is that all they are?  Or do they contain today's buzzword "carbon"??

 

It seems aimed at recording studios - which is fine.  Tho maybe Chris C. would like to do this after he finds a way to deal with the giant cavity resonator formed by his open stairwell...

I got some nice R-13 fiberglas batts behind my drywall.  Not as sexy as carbon but probably performs just as well.

Also R-30 in the ceilings.  Insulating is all about holding air and not so much about the material.  Carbon expensive fiberglas cheap.
