STC in a carpeted condo

This question is from NO LONGER AVAILABLE

February 19, 2016
What would the total STC of a 500-600 sq ft area be that has this product, under a carpet pad & carpeting? The subfloor is concrete, in a top unit condo. Does double layering this product substantially increase its sound proofing capabilities? I'm considering having this product installed under my existing carpet to reduce the sound of my downstairs neighbor's loud TV and want to make sure it can make a noticeable improvement in my situation before I consider purchasing.

Answer: 
To DB Sound Control - but the description says "dB-4looring is a cost-effective subfloor application that is easy to install with any style flooring—carpet, hardwood, vinyl and ceramic tile. Install dB-4looring and dampen both impact and airborne sound throughout homes, offices, apartments and condos." But your comment seems to contradict that? Can you please explain?

TV and voices are airborne noise. The concrete subfloor should provide all of the airborne acoustics necessary. Are you sure it is concrete or is it a thin 1" layer of gypsum concrete layer over a wood floor?

TV and voices are airborne noise. The concrete subfloor should provide all of the airborne acoustics necessary. Are you sure it is concrete or is it a thin 1" layer of gypsum concrete layer over a wood floor?
It sounds like you have a flanking noise issue or neighbors play the TV at an extreme base level causing vibrations in the concrete structure. Installing dB-4 white side down under the carpet will not not have a substantial effect on reducing sounds from below. It is designed to be effective reducing impact noises coming from above and reducing noise in wood trussed floor systems. Rather than 2 layers of dB-4, I suggest you install a layer of dB-4 white side down over the concrete subfloor. Loose lay a layer of 3/8" cement board over the dB-4 and install your capret and pad over the cement board. This will create a blocking layer isolated from the rigid concrete mass. This should improve your situation. This will have a limited improvement as the best method to stop the sound is from below at the source. the stc of the assembly will depend on the construction of the assembly. Adding the cement board and the dB-4 will probably add 4-5 STC to the assembly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good price for Mass Loaded Vinyl Best price for Sound proofing, Using it on walls and celling . 1st Roxul in between studs, 2nd 1/2" plywood, 3rd Db acoustic underlayment "mass loaded vinyl" 4th 5/8" sheet rock 5th GreenGlue 6th 5/8 sheet rock. Hopefully this does the trick for my music studio. Product is heavy and you need roofing nails with the round plastic spacers to install and pvc tape for seams . May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For the kitchen Porcelain It's a very good product and I'm so happy to purchase it April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install. Does the job. Easily unrolls and lays flat. A 13 by 15 foot room was laid out in 10 minutes. Price is reasonable for what it does. Recommended. December 13, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy, good material This stuff is HEAVY but for sound absorption, that is a good thing. It can be a bit of a challenge putting on walls for one person, but that should be of no surprise. Use nails, not screws. I was expecting it to be quicker, but it seems to work good. November 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Acoustic floor underlayment This underlayment is the very best I have seen. Well worth the special order, shipped free to our house. Rolled out easy and very heavy! Which in turn makes a great sound muffler! We are very happy we went the extra $$ to get this. Well worth the money! August 18, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by does not work under carpet I got this hoping it would reduce airborne noise coming from neighbors downstairs. I was looking for something inexpensive and easy to install since I live in an apartment. The installation could've been easier except I had to move all my furniture out of my room. Now I feel like it wasn't worth it. There is no difference in the noise level coming thru. I can still hear their mumbling voices and their TV. Wish I could return it, but of course I had to cut it in order to install it. Even if I could, I'm not moving my furniture again. feeling extremely disappointed. January 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by somewhat effective but expensive We had ours installed by a flooring contractor in our second level apartment. There was a noticeable difference but it's not soundproof. I would use it again if the product wasn't so expensive. 75 cents per square foot is too expensive for what it does. April 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Great to see this product is back!! I used this in my daughter's room 12 months ago - I added to the floor, and I also used this on the wall between her room and the master bedroom (sandwiched between the sheet rock). As far as the wall, I cannot hear any anything (voices or TV) between our rooms, but if I knock on the wall, you can hear a muffled knock. I ran out of this product on a portion of the floor, so a part of her room does not have this - I used a barrier with carpet underlayment as the installers were waiting. Even so, it's much, much quieter than before. This has a rubberized backing with a felt lining, and it is thick and HEAVY - it's almost too heavy for one person to pick up, which tells me this is high quality because of the thick rubber. They don't tell you this, but I would say to ensure the maximum sound proofing, get some sound muffler calk tubes to seal where the edges meet, and then add the tape. I have heard of some folks adding a second layer diagonally to get almost complete quietness....i'm seriously thinking of doing when get hardwood installed upstairs. The only down side is you need to order this product and make sure you have enough, and they should provide the calk or something to seal the edges....I could not find this product anywhere other than HD's website.
