    First off I have no money and at this stage I don’t want to state reasons but I am desperate to soundproof 3 existing walls. I have purchased some like, a pack tiles with a sticky back. These I have put on one wall, it’s not fully worked. The wall in question has 2 layers of these tiles, part is behind my montor, I have covered the back of the monitor with a board and the board has more soundproofing tiles, still I can hear noise (although it’s a little quieter).

    Any ideas on good cheap solutions most welcome.

    Cheers
    John

    Source of the noise would help John.

    Internal? Neighbours? Something else?

    A tip from my designing speaker enclosures book say that when you have two opposing surfaces you only need to damp one of them to stop echo’s. It then goes on to say its best to damp both 😂

    The kind of tiles they use for false ceilings are really good at stopping reflections, especially the ones with the little holes in because thats what they are for.

    Thanks Graham not sure what’s meant by opposing surfaces.

    Looking at tiles for reflections, do these reflect noise created in mine or noise the neghbours create or both.

    The ceiling tiles deaden sound so they work both ways and opposing surfaces are surfaces opposite each other so in theory you should only have to cover two walls and the floor or ceiling of a room to stop it echoing.
