IsoWall Featured on “Inside This Old House”
In 2004, This Old House decided to include a dedicated home theater in their featured project. They consulted with Goodwin's High End in Boston, who urged them to specify ASC IsoWall for structural sound conditioning and soundproofing. The footage made it into an episode of "Inside This Old House" on the Arts & Entertainment Network.
That got the attention of the crew of This Old House and they zoomed in on soundproofing. New information about construction and remodeling is important, especially when it comes to the concept of "High End Soundproofing".
They shot the full explanation of the ASC IsoDamp wall and ceiling systems from a very experienced sales guy at Goodwins, one of ASC's oldest dealers. The topic of sound conditioning and soundproofing was discussed at length. The discussion covered suspending the home theater walls and ceiling from the rest of the structure using IsoWall and IsoCeiling.
This gives excellent soundproofing and isolation. Then they discussed the addition of damping materials (WallDamp) to the suspended walls and ceiling so as to calm them down when high power audio is present. This level of remodel detail was fascinating to the crew. They had never thought of damping a soundproofing project so the soundproofed room sounds good inside.
