Re: soundproofing enclosures?

I started a topic on a local 'noise control' forum where I got the following advice for a box without windows but with air ducts: Starting from the outside, make a frame and screw 18mm plywood or underlayment to it to form the box. Glue 25mm or 50mm rockwool to it. Then add a layer of thin PE plasti...
