Good Questions: Where Can I Find a Soundproofing Kit?

Hello AT,

I know you've posted a lot about soundproofing on your blog, but so far this particular issue hasn't been discussed in detail: Last week on the TV show, "Open House NY," they featured a soundproofing company called Acoustilog (a company mentioned several times on your website) who paid a visit to a woman complaining of hallway noise traveling into her apartment. Acoustilog recommended that she install a soundproofing kit to her door to quiet the sound. (Worked wonders!)

Here's the thing: I suffer from the same problem, so I called Acoustilog to inquire about the kit and installation...

They said they only make recommendations; they don't do the actual installation.

So, my question is, where can I pick up one of those kits, how much
does it cost, and do you need to be a contractor to install them?

Thanks! Caroline

Dear Caroline,

Your question is a good one to post, but we DO suggest that you ask Acoustilog (below) what they mean directly. We know that Acoustilog is a consultancy and that they help hire folks to do acoustic work in both residential and professional situations. A "soundproofing kit" could mean many different things, but smacks of the DIY and affordable. It's either a silver bullet or it's not.

Anyone have a lead on "kits"?
