The room is about 12 x 12!
It is possible to completely cancel out any audio from your room but it will cost in the 2000 range; You need 3 layers of 6.4mm sound barrier foam or more.
Your wall naturally has an STC rating of about 3; 1 layer of sound barrier 6mm+ will bring it to about STC 22; a seccond layer will bring you just over 40, at this point a sneeze is silent. a 3rd layer will bring you to an STC 60+ which is the lowest rating for a "Sound Proof" enclosure. Your parents could sleep through some serious sound with that.
Audimute sells them in rolls but I don't like their products.
in addition; not related to sound barriers.
I have seen so many people spend over $1,000 in foam to make their studios.
First week of Sept. I am going to build an 8ftx4ft Iso booth for under $1000 with sand filled flooring to cancel out vibrations from the exterior noise.
I will film every aspect of the build for you guys who think tacking foam to the drywall of your house does anything other than cancel out reverb and reflect. Bass and treble nodes are still raping your sin waves folks! Your not spending your money wisely!
