Soundproofing is any means of reducing the sound pressure with respect to a specified sound source and receptor (noise control). Why soundproof? There are many reasons why we want to sound proof. Sotimes we want to keep noises from coming into the area we want soundproofed. This would be things like recording studio. If you live in a loud area, you may want to just beable to relax in the house without that noisey world outside. Other times we want to keep the sound in. Home theaters and practice rooms are this way. I love to have that Bose home theater pumped up while watching my latest horror movie, with out having the neighbors think of horrible ways to get pay back or calling the police because they hear someone screaming (as they run from that psycho monster from the lake). I also like to drum on my kit, without waking up the neighborhood. Sound proofing helps keep the peace and make good friends.
