Insulating a basement for noise.


I am using some R13 to insulate my joists in my basement ceiling for noise. Was wondering about the soffit..... how thats done?

Non need to insulate there cuz it has a void already? Or do you just lie the insulation on top the soffit firring strips?

How do the Pros do this?

thanks for your help

Sound insulation is an expensive and complicated process. Basic insulation will not do a lot. Do a search for accoustic insulation and you will see what I mean.
