I’m in the process of designing a dedicated listening room / theater. My house was just recently built but unfortunately the builder wouldn’t allow me to make any modifications. The house has a media room, which I plan to use for this purpose. I’ve been thinking of ripping out the drywall from the interior walls, modifying the stud locations, insulating the wall, adding clips and furring channels, mvl and 5/8 drywall. I can imagine all of this is going to add cost and complexity, given I have a brand new house with a perfectly fine room that’s just not isolated by any means.
I’m curious for those of you with dedicated rooms, did you spend the time and cost to apply some manner of sound isolation or did you skip this step? Really just trying to figure out if I’m acting crazy or not, lol.
