    Nyal At Acoustic Frontiers designed my basement room. In ceiling he did 12 inches of Roxul insulation, a layer of mass loaded vinyl then two layers of quietrock with green glue floating on these KNC hangers. Noise floor is very low (no external noise from outside room) and bass is tight. You might want to give him a call.
