    Hi John.

    Can ask you a question about decoupling/isolating a centre channel speaker? It currently sits on top of my entertainment stand just below my wall mounted TV. I need to angle it upwards slightly to reach ear level. I found some of your posts about Sorbothane... I think I'm going to get a sheet of it 1/4" thick and cut some squares out of it (as you suggested) then trim them until I get the right size to allow for 10% compression. The speaker lays horizontally and weighs about 22 lbs.

    Do you think I should cut three squares or four? (due to the horizontal placement) Should I get Duro 30 or 40? Once I get the squares to the correct size, I'm going to build small wooden "riser" legs for the front (maybe 3" high) and small wedges for the back. Do you think I should put Sorbothane in-between the top of the legs/wedges and the speaker as well as on the bottom? Or should I just put a small piece of rubber at the top so the speaker doesn't slide?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hey, I love your posts! You have replied to a few of mines before. I am trying to decipher and reconcile a lot of information I am seeing online. What would you suggest as a few options for building a wall with a high TL rating in a classroom so that I can split the classroom between the studio vs. instructional area?

    Hi John, I've updated this<< thread in the time since you last posted on it, including an upload of my SKP file. If you'd take look at it when you can to give me your feedback, I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you once again.

    Hey John, I've got this thread in the acoustics forum and nobody's answering... I probably missed something very obvious and made a total ass out of myself there. Would you mind giving me advice nevertheless? Here's the thread: http://www.gearslutz.com/board/studi...oundproof.html
    Thank you so much! Cheers, Ben

    Hello sir,

    I'm planning to build myself my first home studio and trying to manage my expectations about it. Experienced eyes such as yours might see some obvious holes in my plans that I myself can't so...I will be very grateful if you can take a little time to look at this thread and tell me what you think? Thank you very much in advance.
