My space (18' X 31') is acoustically treated with RPG panels and fiberglass over triple reinforced walls and ceiling.
Floor is lamination beams over steel plates and concrete piers plus two 5/8 epoxy lam sheets for floor. Followed by two inches of concrete float and India multi color slate.
All the reinforcement and acoustic treatment goes unnoticed, due to Whisper Wall rail system and fine textured acoustic cloth covering everything. In these photos and in person) the acoustic work passes for traditional painted sheetrock.
The room acoustics were conceived and specified by RBDG. The entire space was torn out to dirt and studs about nine years ago.
