My studio needs a soundproof door to keep the noise down from the outside world. Here is my guide on how to soundproof a door.

If you’d like to follow this step by step guide on how to soundproofing a door you’ll need some 2″x3″ timber (50mm x 75mm), some acoustic sealant, some 3″ (70mm) acoustic insulation, some 1/2″ (12mm) cement board and some 1″ (22mm) moisture resistant MDF

If you want to know how to soundproof a door or soundproof anything, just focus on density – you need as much material between the inside and outside of the room as possible. Sheets of timber (preferably moisture resistant) work well and so does plaster board (drywall). With plasterboard, try and go for the fire resistant, moisture resistant or db versions as these are heavier and have a higher density.

db reducing versions of any fibre glass should also be used over their thermal equivalent.

A nice touch I always like to incorporate is using sheets of cement board – very dense, very heavy and great for stopping sound.

  1. I see where you are going here but I'd think that in this particular setup that you have illustrated you create an air cavity but then you remove its benefit by coupling the moisture chipboard to the timber stop. Sound hits the door and it vibrates the timber stop that it is connected to and then the timber stop vibrates the moisture chipboard that is connected to the timber stop. It has bypassed the air cavity.The door needs to be decoupled from the timber stop and/or the timber stop needs to be decoupled from the moisture chipboard. This can be done by using RSI clips or even green glue used to attach the moisture chipboard to the timber stop.But the moisture chipboard should not be connected to the timber stop with something that is not flexible like screws/nails.

  2. Why do all these soundproof videos have crazy loud intro music, geez I am trying to reduce noise, why would I need loud music playing in my ears.
