Finally! A practical guide that covers a common-sense approach to sound isolation, written for home theater enthusiasts like you.
In the process of creating a great sounding home theater, you know that sound isolation is going to be part of your project. However, as soon as you begin to study sound isolation you quickly find yourself buried in formulas, strong opinions, arguments, and more. Which leaves you to simply wonder…
Isn’t there just a common sense set of best practices?
Well yes, there is, and that is what the Practical Guide to Home Theater Sound Isolation is all about.
The sound, of your room, does not need to be treated like magic, it does not need to be thought of as something that only the most gifted math and science majors can understand. Everyone can learn the fundamentals and apply that knowledge, in a practical way, in their own rooms and theaters.
You can learn these core principles, these common sense applications that will have your theater sounding incredible.
Imagine a home theater where you:
- Don’t have to keep turning the volume up because you can hear the furnace or dishwasher or people talking outside the theater
- Can only hear the sound of what you’re watching
- Can be outside the room and not hear anything going on in the theater
- Don’t damage your speakers from having the volume too high during action scenes because you can hear things from outside the theater
- Don’t miss an important dialogue in the movie because the volume is too low from people being disturbed outside your theater
Have you ever been in a theater where you have to keep turning up the volume during quiet scenes and then quickly turn the volume back down during loud scenes? You can fix that with sound isolation techniques.
Have you ever been in a theater where you can hear people outside talking or the boom from a another room watching a movie? You can fix that with sound isolation.
Have you ever been in a theater where people outside your room can’t sleep because your theater is leaking out sound? You can fix that with sound isolation.
It isn’t magic, it is science. But, you do not need a science degree to understand the common sense applications.

Theory and Application
There is theory in this guide, without it you would have no foundation for the application. The primary purpose of the guide is to take that theory and then apply it to your actual home theater – the practical application is the key. The end goal is for you to have some basis in the theory, and then go ahead and use that to create your own sound isolation treatments.
So you get both – you get the theory AND you get the practical application.
