    Default Re: Noisiest Ceiling Ever - Help!

    Without boring the larger audience with excessive details, let me say that I am familiar with the manufacturing of damping compounds at the molecular level, as well and the factory assembly of these pre-damped panels. I have been involved with the R&D of constrained layer damping materials and systems since 2003. I have consulted with 3 of the 4 manufacturers who make these pre-damped panels.

    There is no time consuming aspect of this in any form. It's very fast. To add mystique to the process is simply misleading.

    Due to expenses like freight costs, factory damped panels are naturally and understandibly more expensive, but also have more expensive waste, and have generally lower performance than a field assembled panel (due to either lack of mass, lack of damping or some combination thereof).

    They are all fine products, however.

    So the conclusion is pretty obvious, the more expensive the better

    Well, the most expensive system would use pre-damped "soundproof" drywall, and that would be a waste of funds. So the most expensive isn't any better at all.
