A: This works great under carpet. Its focus is to reduce standard footfall/impact noise (standard walking) (95%) and will help reduce airborne noise to a lesser extent (up to 25%). If the concern is purely airborne noise (talking, music, etc.) I'd recommend looking into more of a noise control barrier product. It would be loosely laid on the subfloor, seams taped with duct tape, and then you would install your carpet pad, tac strips and carpet on top of it.
A: No, this can not be used under carpet.
A: Hi Erica, This underlayment will offer a minimal reduction in the sound level. It is mainly designed to reduce impact noise caused by walking on the laminate flooring. Mike
A: Any product that can do more than minimal reduction?
A: Yes, the underlayment can be used for nail down installation.
