    You might look at tennis balls (cut in half) mounted on cement board panels (about 5.6 sf) as sound control in places that require fire ratings as well as in residential installations. For the DIY ers, the cost of materials is about $5 to $5.50 per sf. I have pictures of the panels in a restaurant but no sound attenuation ratings. My interest lies in selling the balls. I built some of the panels so I can fill you in on some of the DIY details.

    Please help. I live in a small apartment and my neighbors can hear us snoring so they bang on the wall. I have noticed a bit of an echo near the wall that is shared between our bedroom and theirs. Should I hang rugs on the wall above our headboard or what?
