+1 on that 8)

Yes. There are several things that could lead people to go nuts about it. Its like gearslutz. "what pre do I use for this??" "what AD converter should I use for 6 string acoustics??"
There is an invisible line between having a starting point and using it at your favor, and going nuts and try to get the most isolated room, with the most perfect ratio, the most perfect bass trap, and suddenly we all forget why we are here: MAKE MUSIC !

Hey guys
Any ideas on how to "lock" the door besides puting a "lock" ??
Maybe puting some fabric on one side so it "closes tightly" ??
I dont have access to any kind of magnetic door deals here (i dont even have homosote ! lol )
So I need a really DIY solution

Yup!
I'll get one an install it !
I hope it really pushes the door hard to keep it "closed" and not "oh, it needs just one more push to get closed" thing, because the neoprene seals kind of make the door closing very tight
:mrgreen:

I use a combination of a door closer and five magnets (6kg each) glued into the doorframe and some screws at the magnet points in the door.
works perfect for my DIY door, and this beast is realy heavy. 3 sheets of MDF (1st layer 19mm, 2nd layer 21mm, 3rd layer 16mm)

cheers
Mika

Yup, magnets are the solution.
you can either use loose magnets, like mika, or a so called magnetic strip all around. check Lou's threat on that!

No.
I use high performance magnets which you can order easy in webshops.
Mine have a diameter of 10mm and a legnth of 15m.

it`s not that type i used, but it`s nearly the same.
There are alot of different forms, with different power.
I`m sure you will find a shop like these in your area

cheers
Mika

I bought the door closer. Now I just hope it closes my door!!
Any of you could estimate how much my door weights?
Its two sheets of 25mm MDF, plus two sheets of 9mm MDF, plus the MLV sheet
The door is 218mm x 80mm

EDIT: I just did a rough estimate considering that a 25mm (1") sheet of MDF weights like 60kg. Thats 21kg per square meter
My door's surface is 1.7 m2, so my door roughly weights like 80kg... My door closer is rated for 60-85kg door. So I hope I works (It was the strongest on homedepot)

a quick calculations says that the MDF alone weights about 85 kilograms. Add the MLV (why did you use that?) and you'll have your mass.
