Question

I've got a noisy neigbor and want to build a false wall to stop as much music noise as possible. Can I just use resilence channel with drywall on top? How far off the wall can I come for maximum blocking? Should I first put form board on the wall? Thanks.

I guess I am confused. Are you going to just put it up on one wall ? Give more details. What kind of room ? electrical ?
windows ?

We share a common wall. His living room is on the other side of my bedroom. Can I just put up the RC channel on that wall (with dry wall on top)or should I put foam insulation on first, than the RC & drywall. Would placing 1x2 or 2x3 on the wall help even more? Or should I just build another wall an inch away from the existing one? There to, do I use foam panels? There are electrical outlets in the wall that can be moved. I hope this helps you understand my problem a little more and thanks for your help.---Greg

Check the date, Sim; this is a ten year old thread.

In case anyone is interested 10 years later, the answer is no, you should not use resilient channel or any other decoupling system on an existing wall or ceiling. You would need to remove the existing drywall to expose the studs or joists, then decouple.
